1 person+6 years=The black hole devour game “Donut County”
Donut County was created by Ben Esposito, the designer of What Remains of Edith Finch and The Unfinished Swan. After six years of independent development, after consuming dozens of doughnuts (for research) and a fateful beggar with a raccoon, he finally launched the game.
According to Ben Esposito, the prototype of Donut County comes from a 48-hour GameJam in 2012, inspired by the jokes of the ambitious game designer Peter Molyneux. The idea is simple, make a game that you can’t control. “Digging a hole in the ground, I am not sure if this will be interesting, but when I join a moving hole, I can collect things and grow, I think it is.”
Donut County is a narrative puzzle game. The game begins with a conversation between Raccoon BK and his best friend Mira. After listening to Mira’s complaint, the raccoon used a hole to let the motorcycle rider who had a break from Mira disappear. But it was out of control until all the Donut County was swallowed into the hole. Six weeks later, the raccoon BK himself fell into the underground 999 feet and met his best friend Mira and residents of Donut County. Residents including Mira began to denounce raccoons and must give an explanation.
The residents of Donut County began to tell their stories around the campfire. You started exploring the home of each character and swallowing everything, provided that you first had to make the hole bigger, in the process, you might need With some little tricks, the things you collect don’t really disappear. After swallowing the bonfire, the hole is on fire, throwing the corn in, the popcorn will fly out. As the game progresses, the puzzles become more eccentric. In addition, you can also purchase some necessary items through the game store to help solve the puzzle.
In the course of the game, you will gradually understand how the state of Donut County has evolved through the conversations of residents around the campfire or the text messages in the event review. The slightly humorous game soundtrack and tone are also very much in line with the game atmosphere.
