Shank developers working on the browser-based Don’t Starve

Klei Entertainment, the studio responsible for Shank and Mark of the Ninja, is developing a new game called Don't Starve.

The browser-based game has entered closed early-access beta. You can try out a free, limited demo of the game, but most features are reserved for beta participants, many of whom helped with previous beta versions.

Of course, you can buy your way into the current beta for $6.99. By doing so, you'll also receive an extra key for a friend. Don't Starve will launch for $15, so this is the better deal if you're already interested.

Don't Starve is a survival-exploration game that follows Wilson, "an intrepid Gentleman Scientist who has been trapped by a demon and transported to a mysterious wilderness world."
