Donut County Flatscreen PS4 Game Review:
So I’ve been playing (and finished) this game called Donut County and I wanted to write about it right here on my blog. In Donut County you play a hole, yes, a hole in the ground and it’s your job to swallow everything.
Start small and work your way up, with the hole increasing in size with each item swallowed. If you’ve played a Katamari Damacy game, you’ll be familiar with this simple concept, but in reverse (in that game you pick up items and get bigger. If you haven’t played it, I again recommend it).
Anyway back to the quirky charm that is Donut County…
Donut County shows us creator Ben Esposito is an evil genius, because as I was playing I was thinking, I am literally doing the same thing over and over again in differing environments, yet I can’t stop playing. Perhaps it was the adorably attached story, told through the townsfolk of Donut County, each reliving the moment the hole seemed to sweep in from nowhere and lay waste to their adorable lives.
Whatever the case I just wanted to say, don’t overlook Donut County, it’s a fun game and simple enough for the entire family to take turns playing. It’s not a long game, I finished it in around 3 hours or so, but I cherished every hole filling moment.
