Klei Entertainment had fantastic success with stealth platformer Mark of the Ninja last year. Now, in 2013, they bring us their latest offering: Don't Starve.

The Don't Starve system requirements are in, so let's take a look and see what kind of system you'll need to run this quirky-looking survival game...

 

Don't Starve Minimum System Requirements

OS: Win XP / Win Vista / Win 7 / Win 8

CPU:  1.7 GHz Processor or better

RAM: 1 GB Memory

GPU: 256 MBRadeon HD5450 or higher

DX: 9.0c

HD: 500 MB Free Hard Drive Space

 

Nothing too demanding there, and the game itself looks like an interesting idea. Anything where the main character is described as a 'gentleman scientist' scores immediate points in our book.

As you may notice, only the Don't Starve minimum system requirements have been published at this point. Once people get playing the game and data comes in, we'll no doubt have the scoop on what kind of system gets the most out of it.

By looking at the system requirements, i'm guessing you could get a good medium setting gameplay with roughly an average of 30 fps.

Interesting and I expect this to be no problem for my sys :)
Btw: I thought this was about something else; while reading the title, I thought it was about system requirements in general and the requirements relatively being low compared to the possible high-end rigs that can 'eat' games very easily.... :P

The recommended requirements we have are an estimate and as Squee wrote, we'll redefine them as the results start pouring in :)
