The bizarre, yet fantastic looking game gets a little bit closer.
Donut County is a physics adventure game where you control a hole in the ground. Every time you swallow something, the hole grows a little bit bigger. You play as a raccoon named BK, a new hire at a start-up that uses remote-controlled holes to steal people’s trash– along with everything else. When BK falls into a hole himself, he must answer to his best friend Mira and the residents of Donut County who are now stuck 999 feet below their homes.
Despite the name of the game being spelt incorrectly (it should be Doughnut County of course!), we can’t hold it against developer Ben Esposito, as even though the game is yet to be released, it has won several awards, including excellence in visual art at the Independent Games Festival and the award for story / world design in the IndieCade awards, both in 2015.
Though no date has yet been set for release we can expect it some time next year, on PC, Mac and iOS, with plans for console versions to be announced.
