I remembered the size requirements of Katamari Damacy, the levels I didn't finish on time, the ones I went back to repeatedly, always finding new things to roll up. It's not a fair comparison of course. It's a lot to ask from an indie developer, even one as talented as Esposito, to create an endlessly replayable game. But then one donut is never enough is it? Grab Donut County, settle in for a couple of hours, and enjoy it for the short and sugary delight that it is.
It may be a very short diversion, but Donut County is a delight. It’s absolutely brimming with personality, has a killer soundtrack and visual aesthetic, and is based on an irresistible gameplay hook. I’d have loved more, but I guess I’ll just settle for playing through it again.
Donut County is a game with fun ideas and a pleasantly relaxed attitude, but it's not the most compelling of experiences. It's easy to control, clever, amusing, and I finished it across a single session without growing bored. But it doesn't offer the catharsis you might expect from a game about wanton destruction, and its lightness and short runtime make it feel inconsequential.
