Donut County, the indie game where racoons steal your stuff through holes in the ground, has gotten an official release for the PlayStation 4, PC, and mobile — August 28! The developer, Ben Esposito, the evil mastermind behind Tattletail, announced the release date on PlayStation’s blog.
Esposito went into detail about the story of his passion project:
Donut County is a wacky physics puzzle game, but it’s really held together by a story about a raccoon named BK and his best friend Mira. Before the town gets destroyed by holes, BK & Mira work together at a donut shop that turns out to be a front for the trash-stealing Raccoon Company. While Mira turns the other cheek, BK gets sucked into the job of opening up holes to steal his friends’ houses. And that’s just the beginning.
Pre-orders are available now for $12.99, but PlayStation Plus members can grab up Donut County for a discounted price of $10.39. Every pre-order will come with a free dynamic theme called “Throne Room,” but Esposito promises “chill music and non-intrusive sound effects….from the game that you’ll enjoy hearing for a long time.”
Since Donut County’s announcement back in 2014, fans have been looking forward to playing as a destructive hole that devastates towns and sucks up trash…Or maybe that’s just me. But, needless to say, we’ll be picking up a copy. Will you? Let us know in the comments below!
