There are a few things that you need in every game of Don’t Starve to ensure that you survive past the first few days. In this video, I show you which items to craft first and what resources you need to harvest to do so.
A fire pit is essential because it prevents you from having to burn up all of your logs and cut grass to build a fire every night. It also keeps nearby trees and other flammable objects from catching fire.
As mentioned in the video, a science machine unlocks more recipes to allow you to craft more items, including a lightning rod. Trust me when I say the lightning rod is an essential, or you’re going to be facing winter with no food because lightning struck all of your stuff and set it on fire.
If you’re at a loss for what do after you’ve fired up your first game of Don’t Starve, this video is a must-watch. Enjoy!
