    Donut County, devoloped by Ben Esposito and published by Annapurna Interactive (What Remains of Edith Finch), released on SteamPS4GOG, the App Store, and the Mac App Store in 2018. Thanks to the awesome Steam’s Halloween Sale, I was able to play this hilarious physics-based puzzle game. It is indeed reverse-Katamari from the gameplay mechanics and premise, to the colorful and whimsical world of strange characters. In Donut County, you control a hole and put everything and anything in it! My only complaint is that I wish the game was longer because I enjoyed it so much. You can check out my full gameplay of 2 hours below!

    The idea of starting with consuming smaller objects so that you can grow-in-size and move on to larger ones, had me sold. But the game goes even further by adding a fully-formed and ridiculous plot about raccoons building a bigger trash empire through use of their technology. Apparently that includes this remote-controlled hole that brings what it swallows 999 feet underground. So don’t worry, no animals were harmed during your enjoyment of total destruction.

    To shake things up a little, certain levels require a tad more strategy like with hard-to-reach objects. For example, you can upgrade the hole to have a launcher to shoot things upward, such as a frog to catch the flies. You can’t die and you can’t really mess up so you can just keep trying different things until they work! Eventually our friend the raccoon, BK, gets stuck down under with the entire town and helps to come up with a plan to send everyone back.

    We’re nearing Halloween, a wonderful time of year, and I wanted to keep you all in the festive mood this month! Although, I’ll never understand why people love pumpkins in October so much. I mean, potatoes are awesome every day of the year! Last month in September 2019, a creepy and cute little indie game gem was released for Steam, Origin, GOG and Humble Bundle. It’s a short casual and story-driven game with dark undertones but the narration by Mr. Voice and other voice acting really has me interested!

    ENCODYA is a point-and-click adventure game set in a dystopian future by sole developer Nicola Piovesan, an award-winning filmmaker. What inspired him to create ENCODYA was the “creativity of Studio Ghibli, the setting and atmosphere of Blade Runner and the humor and game style of Monkey Island”. Although this reminds us of the 1999 animated film Iron Giant and we’re loving it. You can back this game on Kickstarter now, and for another 24 days, right here! The game will release for PC, Mac and Linux (Steam and GOG) with a plan to later port it for mobile and consoles.

    About ENCODYA

    It’s 2062. Tina – a 9 years old orphan – lives with SAM-53 – her big clumsy robot guardian – on a rooftop makeshift shelter in Neo-Berlin, a dark megalopolis controlled by corporations. The protagonist is an urban jungle kid, which has learned to live alone, scavenging dumpsters of the dystopian city, eking out a living of scraps. Her funny robot always with her, programmed to protect the girl no matter what.

    Key Features

    • 6+ hours of gameplay
    • 2 playable characters
    • 30+ non-player characters
    • 50+ locations
    • 500+ lines of dialogue
    • Randomization of objects and locations
    • Original art and assets
    • Custom sound design
    • Original soundtrack
    • Professional voice actors

    Kickstarter Rewards and Stretch Goals

    Besides the game itself – with lots of bonus digital features such as wallpapers, concept arts, videos, soundtrack and more – there are many cool extras: film posters, blu-rays, t-shirt and even a retro style physical copy of ENCODYA in a box! But the most attractive rewards are the ones that will place the backers into the game itself! See your name in the Neo Berlin phonebook or on a neon sign, or be in a poster, or even become an NPC with whom the player can interact and talk!

    Finally, the stretch goals are as follows: translation to 3 extra languages (Italian, German, Spanish), one extra hour of gameplay (new puzzles, locations, characters), and the last goal having yet to be revealed.

    If you’re still unsure about backing this project, you can try out the demo here or see below for more details. For another point-and-click adventure game darker in tone, check out our article here: Roki: Explore A Dark Yet Wonderful World.
