Simples, divertido, curtinho e engraçado.
Foi um otimo jogo pra passar a tarde.

A short palette cleanser of a game, giving you just enough and not dragging on with a unique gimmick only found here.

Donut County is a short, sweet, and charming little game that I knocked out in about two hours. I really liked the concept, pretty much flipped Katamari on it's head where you suck things into a void and said void becomes bigger.

Unlike Katamari though, it's pretty linear which does bog down Donut County's appeal for me. The thing that makes Katamari addictive despite doing the same basic objective, there are elements that change how you go about completing things: Reach this size, collect only these, get the biggest of these, etc. There's light variety thrown in and if you fail some missions you feel very motivated to give them another spin and give it your all. Or hell, once you beat the game, you'd wanna replay stages to make bigger katamaris "I can do this better!"

Donut County, by comparison, doesn't have that replay value. It's a puzzle game sure, but the puzzle solving is just extremely minor. You're not really thinking much beyond what smaller thing to drop in the hole to get the bigger thing, or how to use the catapult to fire stuff out of it, use a bird to drain water, etc. There's not much depth to be had here, you're just going through the motions and I wish this game was much more than that because the potential is there.

The writing was fun and witty at times, but the overuse of "omg" and "lol" in the dialogue felt very forced. You're already have some wittiness here, why force it in?

Visuals are simple, music is chill. There's not much else to say. This was a solid game that I wish had a bit more meat to it to keep me as addicted as Katamari had made me.

Donut Coutry é aquele tipo de jogo muito curto mas extremamente divertido e que vai ficar marcado na sua cabeça, o jogo utiliza de puzzles simples e divertidos na sua gameplay, contém gráficos bem estilizados e leves, misturados com sua direção de arte deixa bem agradável aos olhos além de ter uma OST bem lo-fi que te ajuda a relaxar nessa experiência.

Replayed with the gf on a road trip 🥰. Still cool
