Greed is Good in Donut County

 

There's something meditative about obsessively collecting junk. Everything is equal when it comes to being matter to stick onto yourself. In the cult classic Katamari Damacy, you even got rewarded for doing so, getting bigger and more capable/sticky as you gathered more ridiculous things onto your spherical collector. Oddly, it took more than a decade for that simple zen mechanic returned to video games. Donut County, the new game by Annapurna Interactive (What Remains of Edith Finch), lets us re-embrace our inner kleptomaniac by becoming the ceaseless Void itself.

 

Sorta. You actually play as BK, a member of a gang of raccoons that have invaded the titular Donut County with devices that create remote controlled holes. With these holes, they are sucking up all of the neighborhood's stuff, along with the neighbors themselves! BK accidentally falls into his own hole, and all the people in it have a lot of very aggressive questions for him.

 

As his hole, you are are tasked with putting things in you. The more you put in, the bigger the hole gets. The bigger the hole gets, bigger the things you put in, etc. There are puzzles to solve while holing and quirky people to meet and apologize to profusely. It's a goofy collect-fest that we can all get behind.
