Don't Starve Survival Game, Six Feet Under Update!

Posted by , | Views: 6,274
Don't Starve is an uncompromising wilderness survival game full of science and magic. You play as Wilson, an intrepid Gentleman Scientist who has been trapped by a demon and transported to a mysterious wilderness world. Wilson must learn to exploit his environment and its inhabitants if he ever hopes to escape and find his way back home.

Easily one of the best games available on Linux in my opinion, especially considering how good support it has with updates. They have launched yet another update now as well!

Full Release Notes

I have spent quite a bit of time on this game personally, I highly recommend it to anyone who doesn't have it, it's very weird and wonderful while being dark at the same time. Article taken from

How do I get those updates if I got the game from the Humble Bundle? The version listed there is from 2013-08-31.

If I recall correctly, the standalone version will update on it's own when it is installed, and I assume it will auto update if an update is available.
