That-hole-shouldn’t-be-there simulator now on consoles.
That game that grabbed everyone’s attention this year, Ben Esposito’s Donut County, is now available on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One. Go forth and make holes people!
In the simplest of terms, the game is a narrative based around puzzles involving the physics of holes, where you literally play as a hole in the ground. Prepare to stir up some trouble, disrupting as much as physically possible by messing with people’s stuff and throwing whoever you like into the depths.
According to Donut County’s Steam page, key features include:
- Exploring 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.
We reviewed it upon its PC release, and although we found it a little on the short side, Donut County’s bizarre humour and satisfying mechanics made for a short but sweet experience. You can get Donut County now on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One for $12.99; wreak havoc my friends.
