Donut County

Donut County is a story-based physics puzzle game where you play as an ever-growing hole in the ground. Meet cute characters, steal their trash, and throw them in a hole.

WHERE TRASH IS TREASURE
Raccoons have taken over Donut County with remote-controlled trash-stealing holes. You play as BK, a hole-driving raccoon who swallows up his friends and their homes to earn idiotic prizes.

When BK falls into one of his own holes, he’s confronted by his best friend Mira and the residents of Donut County, who are all stuck 999 feet underground… and they demand answers!

THE HOLE KEEPS GROWING
• EXPLORE every character’s home, each with their own unique environment.
• MOVE the hole to swallow up their stuff, growing bigger each time.
• COMBINE objects inside for crazy effects: cook soup, breed bunnies, launch fireworks, and more.
• CATAPULT things back out of the hole. You can use it to solve puzzles...or just destroy stuff.
• DEVOUR everything. The hole won’t stop until the whole county is all gone.

Donut County was created by Ben Esposito, designer on What Remains of Edith Finch and The Unfinished Swan. It is the result of six years of solo development, dozens of donuts (for research), and one fateful encounter with a raccoon.

I was expecting this to be a one-dimensional game, but it was so much more. Clever narrative, witty dialogue, a joy to play!

The game is 80% nonsense cut scenes that go on far too long, interspersed with a couple of minutes game play and then back to more cutscenes. It’s a shame because the game play bit is quite fun, but it’s painfully slow having to wait for the cut scenes to finish before you can play - there’s no way to skip (in fact some parts requires you to specifically click through). Dreadful game.

Kind of bummed I paid for this app at launch, the review hype made it sound like a lot of fun but there's really not much to it

It’s a good game, but it’s too short. I finished it in around an hour. And I like games that will last me a couple days.

It’s an interesting experience, and the core conceit is fun and different, but they’ve really patched over underdeveloped gameplay with a lot of cute, charming narrative - unfortunately the writing is a bit twee and will not land with everyone.

This game is touted as an editors choice. I thought I would give it a chance. After beating it I realized the gameplay never really changed with minimum puzzle solving. Start small, “eat” something, get bigger, “eat next big thing”, repeat until all items are gone on the limited area for each character.

This game is really creative and looked great, but it was WAY too short for $5. Took about 45 minutes to complete and 30 of those minutes were videos leaving only a mere 15 minutes of actual play time. Definitely do not recommend until they add more.

The app itself was great, I downloaded before an hour and a half flight. I had finished the game before I even landed. The fact that I could go from start to finish in less than an hour seems a bit ridiculous to charge $7.99. Hopefully there are more updates that could lengthen my playing time and make the charge worthwhile.

I love this game so much. Not everybody will appreciate its charm I am sure. Very cute cool graphics and a funny story line with great one liners from the characters. Simple in terms of gameplay and easy to grasp. I did read in other reviews there was disappointment as it is on the shorter side... I think that is something to be expected with a game like this. A lot has gone into it and it can’t go on forever. I’d say it takes about two or three hours to complete roughly. It is fairly inexpensive so this hasn’t altered my review. Really enjoyable, fun and evident a lot of hard work went into making this. Would highly recommend.

I can’t see how this was named 2018 Game of the Year. It is an interactive story that requires virtually no skill. And the script of the character interactions read as if written by a child. Really disappointing and not worth the cost.

Very short game length with no replay ability. Every level is effectively the same and there is no challenge at all to the game. I wish I read the reviews before I purchased. Would love a refund.

The concept is great, but the puzzles are too easy. I finished the game very quickly. I just don’t think the gameplay is worth the cost, but the graphics are amazing! Really aesthetically pleasing

The creator said its satire based on millennials gentrifying Los Angeles. A giant hole destroys the diversity and lives of people in favor of donuts.

Donut County Wiki

2 Week Diet

Donut County is an indie video game developed by American indie designer Ben Esposito and published by Annapurna Interactive. In the game, the player moves a hole to swallow objects, which makes the hole increase in size. The concept originated in a game jam that used video game pitches from a Twitter account parody of game designer Peter Molyneux. It later expanded to be the inverse of Katamari Damacy. Other inspirations for the game included Hopi figurines—a theme Esposito later relinquished—and locations from Bruce Springsteen songs. Donut County was released in August 2018 for iOS, macOS, PlayStation 4, and Microsoft Windows platforms while versions for Xbox One and Nintendo Switch were released in December 2018. . ign, ign au, ign australia, review, game review, reviews, ign reviews, iPhone, Mac, PS4, Annapurna Interactive, Review, PC, Donut County, games, Puzzle, Action, Independent,
