Donut County

2018 video game

Played 21 March 2019 on Nintendo Switch

Is this a dig at Silicon Valley techbros? I love it. Reminded me of an old New Yorker cartoon:

“Yes, the planet got destroyed. But for a beautiful moment in time we created a lot of value for shareholders.”

Short and sweet, full of personality. The kind of game that makes me want to make games.

About star ratings

My ratings are subjective. I’m not aiming for a perfect ranking of comparative artistic merit, just trying to represent how I feel about stuff. Here’s what they mean:

Personal favorite. I simply love it, warts and all.
Something special. Highly recommended.
Good, but unremarkable. I’ll probably forget about it.
A waste of time. Not recommended.
Practically insulting. Soulless garbage. (Rare!)
