    dkirschner's Donut County (PC)

    [June 29, 2021 12:23:04 PM]
    I thought this would be way more like Katamari Damacy. You swallow things up with a hole, get bigger, and swallow bigger things. You know, cause mayhem and such. This was Katamari Lite Lite Lite. There was more of a story than I thought, and that was the main focus. I wonder how much time of the game is spent clicking through the narrative portions vs. being a hole.

    It's a cute game with a silly story, I'll give it that. Basically, there's this raccoon who is trying to rack up points on an app to buy a quadcopter, and to get points, he somehow spawns a hole that sucks stuff in. This is how the raccoon destroys Donut County. The story is about how everyone got sucked down and then how the townsfolk can remedy the situation.

    Being a hole was, like, really boring. I yawned the entire time playing this and even caught myself nodding off to sleep a few times. "Relaxing" might be overly generous; I was straight up bored and sleepy. Another thing I didn't like was the dialogue. Most of the characters spoke the same sort of "lol text speak." It makes me wonder who the target audience for this game was.

    But it could have been soooo much better! The last level, for example, had some interesting stuff going on--multiple rooms, more (easy) puzzles than usual, keycards to unlock doors. Or it could have been more Katamari-ish with way more objects per level to suck in, bigger levels, challenge objectives in levels, more dynamic parts. I mean, Katamari Damacy came out over 15 years ago. How is Donut County not better than it is?! One reason might be that the developer spent a lot of time on a different prototype before this and then changed direction. I wanted to like this a lot more than I did. Oh well! At least it was short!
