    Experience is needed to unlock new Characters. It is awarded on the death or level transition screen, and depends on the days survived. Each survived day adds 20 XP. Subsequent games add to the existing experience (Cumulative).

    More than one character can be unlocked at once. For instance, if a player only has Wilson unlocked but earns enough experience to unlock Wolfgang, both Wolfgang and Willow will be unlocked.

    (Turning off Reign of Giants on the start menu, you can choose different characters here - Makes surviving a lot easier as it rains less)

    Hints and tips can be found here -'s_Guide_for_staying_alive

    By cooking and eating a mandrake, you can skip 2 days. So just make it so that those are set to 'more' with everything else other than what you need to make fires set to 'none'. I got 51 days in 20 minutes doing this

    This character is unlocked by earning 160 XP. You earn 20 XP per day you survive. Meaning you will need to survive a total of 8 days. Surviving a day is faster and easier if you turn off the Reign of Giants DLC. The days are cumulative.
    You must die for the xp to be added
