When you die in Don't Starve, an XP bar appears, telling you the progress to unlocking the next character.

How is this calculated? Is there a set amount of XP you get for each day you survive, or does it increase over time? Do you get XP for other actions, like killing monsters, crafting more complicated items etc.

Each day survived in Sandbox Mode gives exactly 20 XP. Adventure Mode does not reward any experience. To unlock all characters, you need to survive a cumulative 96 days. There is no experience reward for other actions such as killing or crafting.

This other answer says it's 80 days - has the requirement changed? gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/104176/… –  Chris Hayes Jul 24 at 2:18
