Donut County Gets a Hole Release in Late August

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!
