Klei have pushed out their latest expansion with Don't Starve: Hamlet for the single-player survival experience, although they say it's Early Access.

In Don’t Starve: Hamlet, Wilson discovers a lost town of aristocratic Pigmen nestled within a foreboding tropical jungle.

Can you readjust to society as an outsider? Can you earn fame and riches recovering lost relics? Will you weather the Aporkalypse?

Since Steam doesn't have a feature to show DLC as Early Access, Klei have put a little warning on the store page. It mentions that it's not quite finished, with an expected date of December 6th for when it's properly ready.

I'm a huge fan of Don't Starve, when it initially came to Linux I was absolutely hooked and lost a great many hours to it. It's a survival experience like literally nothing else. If you don't usually like survival games, you might very well enjoy this. The style and setting are simply fantastic.

We actually played the multiplayer version, Don't Starve Together, for the six year GamingOnLinux celebration and it was awesome.

Actually Steam is having a Klei Weekend sale right now too.

I did not have Don't Starve before, but I picked it up with all the DLCs including Hamlet and Don't Starve Together for $13(US). (You can also bundle it with Oxygen Not Included.)

The sale lasts for another 16 hours from when I am posting this.

I almost feel bad when I buy games from Klei because I get so much and pay so little. (I sometimes feel bad when I buy games from Paradox too, but for the opposite reasons)

I have played Don't starve Hamlet many hours already and it is more than ready to play even if they willl continue to tweak and balance it for a few more weeks. In my opinion this is by far the hardest game in the Don't Starve series so far, but I use the settings to adjust it down a little. The fog, for example, is just too much for me.

I have spent close to 500 hours in Don't Starve and over 300 in Oxygen Not Included already so I can only say that Klei really knows how to make addictive and fun games. I nominated Klei Entertainment for Developer of the Year this year and I hope that they will continue to produce high quality games for many years to come. If only more game developers would learn what makes a game great!
