Don’t Starve Has Over 1 Million Players, Klei “Looking Into Proper PS Vita Release”
Developer also investigating mobile releases.
Klei Entertainment’s indie survival title Don’t Starve, which recently released for free on the PS4 via PlayStation Plus, now has more than 1 million players. That success, along with enthusiasm for the PS4 version, has motivated the developer to look into a PlayStation Vita release.
Corey Rollins spoke to EDGE about the same and revealed that, “Well before the end of 2013 we had over one million Don’t Starve players. With PlayStation Plus, beyond promotion of being a featured game, a lot of people who maybe wouldn’t have tried our game did [try it] and really enjoyed it. Some of those people went on to check out the PC version as well, and would maybe be interested in the upcoming DLC.
“We’re investigating a proper Vita version [of Don’t Starve] at the moment, but we’re not quite sure yet. Currently, a lot of people play Don’t Starve: Console Edition using the PS4′s remote play, and really enjoy it. So we’re looking into a proper Vita release.”
Don’t Starve may even find its way on smartphones and tablets, though it won’t be any time soon. “As for iOS and mobile, that is something we’ve also been investigating and we think might work, but it’s not at the front of our development priorities right now. It’s still on our radar, though.”
