Play OverviewPlay Overview

Donut County (2018) offers a simple style of play. You drag a hole around the screen; the more things you can make fall in, the bigger the hole gets. You start with bricks, road cones and bushes, but eventually you’re swallowing whole houses.

This sounds simple but has some intriguing complexity to it. To swallow objects floating on water you need to use the hole to drain the water. You then need to empty the hole of water by a bird drinking it. You get a catapult later in the game that is used to fling certain items you have swallowed to hit outcroppings and switches.
