With the release of the dark survival game Don’t Starve today, let’s take a little look at the game. The developers, Klei Entertainment, are better known for such titles as the stealth-assassination game Mark of the Ninja and action-adventure Shank.

Sometime’s when I make a sandwich I like to mix things up, I might put some potato chips on there, put it together with some turkey and mayo. Combinations are really fun! You take parts of other things and put them together into something that could be really cool, but there is always the rare really bad combination of things that should have never come together because they were all bad in the first place.
