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. 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.
Ben Esposito, the developer behind fan-favorite games like Tattletail and What Remains of Edith Finch, has decided to release his hit game Donut County on Android as a Premium Release. This announcement should come as exciting news for android users, but uninteresting news to IOS users as Donut County was released to them 2 years ago, for IOS and other devices.
Donut County is an absolute hysterical puzzle game that gives players control of a mysterious hole, that is the only hole that I have witnessed that actually moves around, and the hole grows each time it swallows an object. The story follows the actions of BK, a mischievous raccoon who has caused the creation and growth of the hole to where it has swallowed the entire city.
Donut County allows players to take on the role of a virtual raccoon. This character controls a 'hole' and by moving the hole from place to place, it is possible to absorb other items in order to grow larger (much like a black hole). Donut County is an indie video game developed by Ben Esposito (American developer) and published by Annapurna Interactive. The game was released in 2018, for iOS, Android, PS4, Windows, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch platforms. The idea of Donut County originated from a jam game based on a Twitter ad by Peter Molydeux, during the time Ben. Donut County is a whimsical Katamari-like game, where you are a hole, and the more objects you let fall into the hole, the bigger the hole, and therein lies the main puzzle element behind Donut County.
Players will be able to play through each citizens side of how they became stuck at the bottom of the hole. The culmination of all the stories will inevitably be humorous for the player but not so much for the characters as they will react to the hole when it moves around. Through Donut County, the player will have to figure out how to swallow everything on the map but in some instances will need to figure out a way to swallow objects by solving a puzzle. Once the hole has grown larger it will be able to swallow bigger items, like entire ten story-buildings.
Donut County has a fantastic soundtrack that accompanies the hysterical and lucrative gameplay, making it one of the most family-friendly games I have come across. No doubt Donut County has become a fan-favorite game, and in some ways reminds me of a just as equally random game: The Untitled Goose Game.
