Something about this place has made the creature go quite wrong.

Wickerbottom, when examining a Moonrock Pengull.

The Lunar Island is a unique area exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in Return of Them. It is a remote island located far out into the Ocean and accessible only by Boat. As soon as the player steps onto the island, a special effect will apply that replaces the player's Sanity with an Enlightenment meter.

The Lunar Island consists of five different Biomes:

Gestalts can be found commonly on the island. When a Hound is killed on the Lunar Island, it has a chance to become a Horror Hound. Moonrock Pengulls will spawn on the island during the Winter, like normal Pengulls do on the mainland.

Prototype TipsEdit

  • To find the Lunar Island, look for a part of the map's edge that looks unnaturally cut off. It will have a completely straight line. Sail perpendicular to that edge to get to the Lunar Islands.
  • There are no Sea Stacks or deep water between the main island to the Lunar Island.

Placeholder TriviaEdit

  • The Lunar Island was introduced in the Turn of Tides update.
  • Wickerbottom's quote for the "Moon" figure[1] may imply that the Lunar Island is a piece of the Constant's moon fallen into the Ocean. This was later confirmed in the release trailer for Turn Of Tides.
