Don't Starve adds a Switch release to the menu

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

To be served up next week.

Survival game Don’t Starve will release on Nintendo Switch next week, April 12.

Klei’s 2D, resource scavenging survival game has proven popular on all platforms since its original PC release in 2013, and will come bundled with the Reign of Giants DLC and Shipwrecked spin-off game.

Don’t Starve sees you run around a sketchbook world collecting food and resources to set campfires and build machines all to help you stave off creatures of the night and, crucially, starvation.

Don’t Starve’s often quite quick sessions make a good fit for the Switch, but we’re mostly hopefully that the co-operative sequel Don’t Starve Together will also come to Nintendo’s hybrid in time.

Don’t Starve releases on Nintendo Switch April 12.
