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.

As game of the year, expected much more from this game. I’ve completed it in a couple of hours, and most of that was trying to move through the cut scenes. Very little replay value. Was expecting something similar to hole.io

I bought the game after it became IOS GOTY, and was fascinated with why it had achieved the title. The concept is novel, and the storyline, in places, comedic though gripping. However, for £4.99, I would have expected more game time. I got through the game within a couple of hours, and that seemed too short. I feel like they could have extended the ending, and made it more difficult, or even introduce different endings depending on how the final boss level goes. The game itself is beautifully crafted, and a treat to play, albeit a short experience with little-to-no replay ability whatsoever. For the hype it received, I had expected more of a journey, almost like the one experienced in THE SILENT AGE by House on Fire. While point-and-clock doesn’t work for this particular game, it had a clear purpose, one stronger than Donut County’s, which revolves around numerous expositions, two or three real time saves, and a boss fight, all to build a big launcher to make everything better. It seemed too easy I enjoyed the logic of the game, and the need for inventive solutions, but I struggled to get fully invested in each level, as it finished within five minutes each time. The characters, though different, are not massively memorable, and are, overall, insignificant to the story. The characters which affect it are BK the raccoon, Possum, and BK’s friend Mira, all of which exist purely to create one hole per level. Overall, satisfied, but disappointed at how overpriced the game is, and how little story and memorability it has. It feels more like a proof-of-concept then a finished game. D

Here’s the problem: there is no puzzle element, no alternative solutions, and no actual game here. You move your target around touching all objects on screen from smallest to largest, in order. That is it. By the time anything more is added to the mechanic you’re 80% through all the content on offer. And you have log since started auto skipping the tedious and unpleasant “story” elements to get to the next assortment of sliding a target to touch all the objects on a static screen. Everything else is very well done. But... well. It’s a well executed, good looking, tedium.

This game could have been good but it’s not...it has very little actual gameplay and a lot of dialogue. And the dialogue doesn’t help the story in any meaningful way but instead feels like filler to make the game feel longer. I’d be surprised if there was even one hour of actual gameplay here

I got Donut County and I immediately became addicted to it but I finished I couldn’t play any more adventures. You can just replay the levels you’ve already finished which I already knew what happened and how to beat it if I played again. I wish there was an endless mode for more playing especially considering the $7 price, even if the was no general story to the playground mode, basically just something you could play after the game ended. Other than the length of the game I enjoyed the storyline, animations, the characters, and the especially the idiotic charm,

The game is fun and story is decent but definitely not worth full price. It was like 40 minutes worth of gameplay definitely not a long game and definitely regret paying full price. Honestly don’t know why it would be game of the year.

The game is beautiful, the characters are pretty cute and funny and I found myself laughing at my own jokes as I swallowed up poor, defenseless animals but after 2-3 hours, I had beaten the game. There are no levels after the story missions and the are only maybe 15 missions that take 10 each TOPS. So if it were $1.99 or even $2.99 it would be 10/10 for me. But $4.99 is way too much for something so short lived with no replay value.

What editor got paid to make this an Editor’s Choice. There is no substance to this “game.” There are few levels and the difficulty doesn’t change. There are no new tricks or skills you need to master in order to progress through the game. It could probably be completed in one hour of play. I want by $5 back!

I was excited to download this game, it had a good story line with it, but the story telling was longer than the actual game. Wish it took longer than a few days to finish

Regretful purchase, it’s all over in an hour or two. Not challenging at all, it’s just a grind. You spend more time reading the dialogue in the cut scenes than you do playing the game. DON’T BUY IT

Nice little game but way too short. 2 hours gaming for the price is not worth it.

The game looks great and was an interesting idea. Unfortunately they didn’t expand on it at all. You swallow objects... and that’s pretty much it.

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

You’ve seen the whole game in the first few minutes. Would be fine for a couple of dollars but not even close to being worth it at this price.

The game has a great concept but lacks much of a challenge. Mostly a story with a few mini games in between. In my opinion not worth the price as I can’t see any more in the way of puzzles and completed the main story in about and hour. In terms of the app itself it is well designed and made, visually great to look at.

Donut County Wiki

2 Week Diet

Donut County is an indie video game developed by 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 will be released in December 2018. . blitz, donut county, Donut County Game, Donut County Gameplay, august2018, donut country music, donut county soundtrack,
