In their full update notes, they said something else that caught my eye. According to Klei, during 2019 DST had "more players than ever before" and so Klei "aren't planning on slowing down any time soon".
Checking on this for myself, what they said is true, they've regularly had tens of thousands of players online and it's trending upwards which is a very healthy sign.
Don't Starve Together has not only become one of the most popular PC survival games, it's one of the most popular games on Steam. I'm not surprised though, it's so madly engrossing it's crazy. I only loaded it earlier to take an up to date screenshot, 30 minutes later I was on a collecting spree and then I got chased off by a horde of angry wasps.
Shortly after that I was chased around by a family of Pigmen, and I ran right into a massive tentacle that shot up through the ground and slapped me into next week. That run didn't last long…
It's great that Klei continue to support Linux with their games like this, Don't Starve together runs so very nicely on Linux and it really is a great game to get into if you love playing with others.
You can pick up Don't Starve Together on Steam.
