Don't Starve: Pocket Edition probably won't actually fit in your pocket


Above: so glad they put me in-game

Everyone’s favourite shaving simulator Don’t Starve is coming to iPad!

The inaccurately titled Don’t Starve: Pocket Edition does two things:

  • Includes the base game and Reign of Giants, both optimised for touchscreen controls.
  • Assumes any human being ever could fit an iPad 3, or iPad 2 Mini, into their pocket.

The game will be released in iOS tomorrow, July 9, for the very reasonable price of $4.99. This seems to be a more direct port of the game than a mobile downgrade, as it requires iOS 8.0 or later, and the iPads it'll work on are the higher-spec ones.

Still, if I can chase Pigmen around on a tablet then all is well in the world.
