Placeholder.png Trivia

  • Wes will still say "I can't do that" when attempting to do an impossible action (this is corrected in Don't Starve Together icon.png).
  • Wes's original pantomime movements were animated by Alex Savin.[1]
  • During the preview stream for A Little Rain Must Fall, developers said that Wes has an invisible bicycle, a likely reference to his cycling action.[2]
  • Additional pantomimes were added to DST for Wes's refresh update.
  • According to Rhymes with Play #279, the pantomime in which Wes waves both his hands is based on the American Sign Language (ASL) sign for applause.
  • The pantomime in which Wes puts a hand to his forehead and looks around is recycled from an animation for the Crabby Hermit Don't Starve Together icon.png.
