I think the longest I have survived was 9 days. I ran out of flowers and my guy went crazy. The shadow monsters killed him.

Keep at it though because you will be shocked at how DEEP this game is... So many new things and there are things you will never see one game that you may see the next.. it is pretty awesome...

I am trying. I only have a couple hours a night to play anymore. I can't really get anywhere in that amount of time.

I seriously suck at this game.  I think I'm right around 10 days maybe?  I'll give it another play though and post what I get.

This. 


I make it so far then just die. I have no idea what my end goal is. 
I just figured out today that there is a map I can use. When do I get weapons?

There is a game here... a great one... 


Idea is stay a live...  Weapons will come as soon as you collect enough material to make a science machine from there you can make all sorts of different things... spears and axes and so on. 


The key to the game is balance... 




You have to manage three main important vitals.  Hunger, Life Points and of course Sanity...  the longer you play the more this game will show you... 


Food and Light are the must haves... 




When ever you eat something... it will tell you what it is doing to your body by lighting up the vitals in a ring of red or green... Red is bad green is good. 




You can make food and cook it.. some will help one vital some will help 2 or all three  or a combination of hurting or helping or just plain hurting you... You have to figure out the vast variations that come with this game...


There is magic as well as structures to make... that will aid you on your way... 


I have seen people with there game in the Hundreds of days... 


It is very hard to play this game.. it is not for those that give up easily or are looking for satisfaction NOW... 




as you play you will unlock characters that will have strengths and weakness... some a good some are bad some are just awesome.. 

Keep playing and you will be shocked at how many layers this game has... 


I have made it to Day 43 but have dies 3 or 4 times since.... once on Day one...  don;t get scared off from how hard the game is... that is all apart of this game...

Finally getting the hang of this game.  My main problem before was combating sanity.  I've finally gotten to the point where making a base with farms is easy, and from there it's simple to keep sanity from plummeting.

Last death was due to a herd of dogs at night.

was it more than two? I only run into two of them at a time. And they usually give you like a 3-5min warning where you can hear them coming and your character says something like "did you hear that?" or "show yourself!". Apparently building walls + traps are the main solutions. Sucks when you have a wormhole between two good sets of biomes (or whatever they are called) that will net you some good stuff, but using that wormhole destroys your sanity :/

It was three, and I had maybe 30 seconds of warning.  I had stone walls surrounding me, but was already very low on health so when they eventually broke through, I got maybe two hits in before dying.

I have not been doing the wall thing I find using the resources for other things. For the hounds when you start to hear them they come that day. 

I use log suit and a spear.  you will be surprise how well it works wearing a football helmet also helps...
