Maxwell's Light is a special Structure that appears in Chapters 5 and 6 of Adventure Mode. It will light up when approached. and will turn off when the player walks away from it

Maxwell's Light cannot be destroyed and does not drain sanity when standing next to it. It is possible to light a Maxwell's Light with a Torch or Fire Staff. Standing among the eyes in the shadows around Maxwell's Lights will not cause them to disappear.

If the player sleeps near a Maxwell's Light, it will not light up upon waking up until they move out of the Light's radius.

  • Some of the Maxwell's Lights in Chapter 6 have a much smaller light radius than those in Chapter 5.
  • Maxwell's Lights make an appearance in Klei's Don't Starve Together promo, "A New Reign."
