Why is everyone talking about Donut County?

A simple game about a raccoon who goes around sending objects down a deep, dark hole in the ground.

Once in a while, a game comes along that captures the hearts of pretty much everyone – and in 2018, that game may well be Donut County.

The puzzle game has received largely positive reviews for its simple premise, the art and a gentrification subtext.

So why is everyone into Donut County?

2. The music

3. The visuals

4. It makes you really want to eat some donuts

5. Odd reality

So it’s unsurprising that users want more:

And as the game is only available on iOS, PC, Mac and PS4, people using other devices are calling for it to launch more widely:

Donut County is available to download now from £4.99 to £9.99 depending on the device you use.
