Don't Starve developer "will retain autonomy" as Tencent buys majority stake

Klei Entertainment, the developer of Don't Starve, says Tencent buying a majority stake won't change a whole lot for the studio. The indie game makers will "retain full autonomy" amid the new ownership. In a post on Klei's official forum, founder and CEO Jamie Cheng confirmed the news, then reassured everyone that for the most part, everything will be business as usual. "There are some boring accounting changes that we will need to adjust to," Cheng writes. "Other than that, I will continue running the studio as before, with no changes to staffing, projects or other operations." Cheng explains that Klei considered a number of different companies, and Tencent was the only one that would let the team "retain the level of control that we demand". The one goal has always been to make sure everyone at the studio was secure and happy, and Tencent helps insure that goal. "Consistently, my wish has been to enable people to do their best creative work," Cheng says, "to learn and grow, to not have to worry about finances, and be able to enjoy their lives outside the studio. This has not changed." Read the rest of the story...
