Starve Board Game

The popular survival video game known as Don’t Starve, famous for its roguelike elements, is being transformed into a board game. This unique project is being undertaken by Glass Cannon Unplugged, a company known for preserving artistic design and blending science and magic in their game universe.

The aim is to create a board game that immerses players in a whimsical world full of strange creatures, dangers, and surprises. It’s hoped that the love of exploration and discovery in the original video game will be conveyed in this version too.

Players will have tasks similar to the original game: gathering resources, crafting items, and building structures to survive in this harsh world. A sense of unpredictability will be achieved by randomly shuffled cards and events.

The visual charm of the video game, embellished by hand-drawn graphics, will be incorporated into the tabletop experience. This fusion of science and magic enriches the fantasy element fantastic.

Game dynamics include player-influenced choices, interactive exploration, and combat. Day and night scenarios fluctuate, providing new challenges.

A dedicated team involving Rafał Pieczynski, a renowned board game designer, Jakub Wisniewski and Natanel Vo-Apfel from the board game industry, are tirelessly working on the game’s narrative. The storyline seeks to captivate players with dramatic tension and strategic challenges, testing critical thinking skills while encouraging teamwork.

Glass Cannon Unplugged is also working on similar projects, converting digital games into board games. Recent examples include Apex Legends and Techland’s Dying Light. Their strength lies in recreating the unique elements of the original digital games.

The original Don’t Starve, launched by Klei Entertainment in 2013, features Wilson, a character fending off darkness in a mysterious world. The blend of survival mechanics, exploration, character progression, and unique visual style made it a huge hit. Now with three DLCs and a multiplayer mode, fans are eagerly waiting for the board game, expecting an equally challenging and engaging experience.
