Games Like Dont StarveOur collection of games like Don’t Starve has other randomly generated adventures that will push your survival skills to the limits in dark settings.

Don’t Starve launched in 2013 and combined several genres together to create a terrifying survival experience. With sandbox, roguelike and adventure components the game proved to be a hit. With minimal instructions on how to survive and permanent death for your character the difficultly bar is one of the highest in the genre.

With day/night cycles, mental health and hunger you’ve got a realistic survival experience on your hands and with death in Don’t Starve coming so easily (in many different ways) you have to remain just as alert for your first day as your one hundredth.
