Game release: “Donut County” (PC,PS4)

Ben Esposito and Annapurna Interactive‘s physics-puzzle game Donut County is all about holes that swallow things.

If the introduction to this news made you scratch your head, then that’s probably the most reasonable reaction. One literally moves a hole around to make objects, including animals, people, and entire buildings disappear, making it bigger during the process. The story behind this strange situation is that raccoons have taken over Donut County with remote-controlled trash-stealing holes. The only problem is that main raccoon protagonist BK falls into his own hole, taking all his friends with him.

If moving around with the hole and making everything disappear would be the only gameplay element, this would be boring. So puzzle elements are introduced, e.g. using objects that fell into the hole by catapulting them out (like fireworks) or using their properties to interact with or destroy the environment (like cooking soup or making a balloon go up again with hot air). As one also gets to know BK’s furry friends, there are dialogues as in an adventure game, too, as weird as it sounds. At the moment I’m not quite sure what to make of this game, but that’s probably a good sign, as it reminds me of the Katamari Damacy games that were about moving a ball around that becomes bigger, as all sorts of objects got stuck to it.

The game is out now on PC and PS4 with a 10% launch discount that will last until September 4th, 1pm UTC. The soothing soundtrack can also be bought separately in digital form.
