MULTIPLAYER
Here is the developers statment on multiplayer.

There has been a lot of talk about adding a multiplayer or co-op mode. I’d like to give our official response to this suggestion, and clear up any confusion that people might have.

As you can see from the game’s roadmap, our vision for the game does not include network play. We have promised our players an awesome single player experience, and we are devoting all of our time and resources towards fulfilling this promise. We are even committing to six months of continued support after launch, so that we can make the game even better.

Don’t Starve was designed and implemented as a single-player game. At the code level, you have to do things a lot differently if you want to play over a network. If we were to implement multiplayer now, we would have to re-architect all of this code, which would have unavoidable spill-over effects for the single player experience. This would make it harder for us to fulfil the promises that we’ve made, and compromise the overall quality of the game.

This is an amazing community, and we really value your feedback, as you can see from our constant updates and hotfixes. We have discussed and debated multiplayer A LOT within the studio. In the end, we have concluded that we can make a better game, and better support the community, if it remains single player. This is why we are not planning on adding multiplayer or co-op to Don’t Starve.

Now let’s get on with making the best single player game we can make!

A few reasons to lock multiplayer threads. First, it has been answered and addressed multiple times, so there isn't any reason to discuss it again.

Second, threads like this happen when people want to stir up trouble because they disagree with our decision.

Third, others who understand this tend to get quite annoyed with "OMG multiplyer nao, my friendz think it wood be fun and ull make lotz of monies" that we get daily.

We already made the decision and made a statement a long, long time ago. It's not going to change, sorry.

Alas, we don't have any plans to introduce multiplayer, co-op, or LAN support for Don't Starve. Aside from it requiring a large amount of work to do it properly and efficiently (resources that we'd rather focus on making more content), we feel pretty strongly that multiplayer and co-op shouldn't be added to every single game.

By design, Don't Starve is really focused on being alone, everything wanting to kill you, and fending for yourself. We feel pretty strongly that having the safety net of other players or even competitive interactions with them, would change the mood of the world a lot. You can find more info about this in our past roadmap discussion here: http://forums.kleientertainment.com/index.php?/topic/4078-multiplayer/

That's one of the reasons why we opened up community modding for the game; we wanted to make it possible for people to attempt their own run at it. Who knows what the community will come up with down the road!

An unofficial response from me, as a fan, about Multiplayer threads.

There has been a lot of discussion over reasons why moderators are locking Multiplayer threads. A lot of this is coming from new players that joined us through the Steam sale. It is common knowledge around here that the Developers are not going to implement Multiplayer into this game. The statements above clearly enforce that. But people are still asking for Multiplayer and threads are still being made.

Obviously this thread has been pinned since the birth of this Forum. However people either fail to see it or in a rush of panic they reproduce a Multiplayer thread after Multiplayer thread without any thought. Some people are genuinely interested to know and want further clarification into the subject. Yes I know, I can sense a lot of you old schoolers moaning and groaning, you're all probably thinking J20Hawkz has gone soft and is going to allow these threads to remain. Well no.

We have stressed our views on this forum many times over why Multiplayer threads should be locked, so I think it fair, new comers should respect the decision made by the Developers and understand why we don't want to allow open topics on Multiplayer. I want our community to be user friendly and support the older active members and new comers as much as we can. Yes we become frustrated but that is no excuse to verbally abuse someone. Not only are you risking a potential ban you are also lowering your respect that others have for you. So please don't do it. New comers don't know how hard we fought to defend the developers decision on Multiplayer, new comers don't realise how many times someone has made Multiplayer threads, my list is but a pin head of the amount of Multiplayer threads out there. So with that in mind the next time you see another Multiplayer thread please link them to this thread and don't insult them.

Multiplayer threads will continue to be locked, because of the reasons stated above by Official members of the Klei team. However from now on I don't want to see anyone insulting someone for making such a thread. Either explain why it won't be added, link them here or wait for me or another moderator to lock it.

Regards.
