Multiplayer Real or Myth??????
I keep hearing rumors that game makers are going to work on the multiplayer once they finshed the game but in the forum they state they are not going to because of complex code.
Can anyone verify for me pls.

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!
sadly even do everybody would like it no thay most likely wont

Alas, that would have been fun.

While it is true that Klei said they aren't currently working on multiplayer, there are mods in development that add features like co-op. They can be found on the Klei forums under Mods and Tools.

I guess Klei is not going to make it becuase its too complex but I think Dont Starve is not really a game that can be playable for long time so I was hoping they add co-op like terraria.

I wouldn't find enjoyment in having this co-op

Or would I? Have two people collect resoucers together and come to a spot to help each other build, could be interesting.

When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade - make life take the lemons back!
Someone made a mod that allows co-op. I didn't try it yet but it has a lot of Likes and Favourites.

I know that mod and I tried it before but it has alot of bugs. Also, you cant call it co-op play anyway you should try. Its a start

I think it could be fun, but kinda dangerous. Friends could set the forest on fire with you in it!

the co-op is a lie . multiplayer is a myth
Seichi Jul 21, 2013 @ 3:03pm 
omg, MP for dont starve could beee soooo awesome >.< co-op could make the game more interesting, but imagine a deathmatch game? kind of "the hunger games" style o.O
Lets wait for all apdates for single, MP can wait!

Coop will be enought for me.
Seichi Jul 21, 2013 @ 4:50pm 
well, if its an issue of just waiting for them to "finish" SP first... then of course i would gladly wait... hell I wouldnt even mind if they released the mode as DLC o.O whaa----
