Celebrate Post-Donut Day with Cute Pics from Donut County

Got the post donut-day blues? Don’t be sad, here’s some cute art from Donut County!

falling

Ben Esposito, (AKA TorahHorse)’s, Donut County is a super cutesy physics game about exploring negative space with holes! Think of Katamari, except instead of starting as a small ball that gradually rolls everything up into a giant ball to shoot out into the solar system because your dad likes to destroy universes, you’re a hole that grows as you explore and solve puzzles in the game while sucking everything that you’re large enough to absorb into your bottomless void.

 

Featured and highly praised at independent gaming events and festivals for excellence in visual art and experimental gameplay, Ben Esposito’s creation is one of many visual/audio projects, one of those recent projects being Anamanaguchi’s Capsule Silence XXIV.

Hyper Light Drifter Collector’s Edition Available Through iam8bit

The eclectically electric 2D action RPG from Heart Machine is now available as a snazzy collector’s edition through the video-game centric art gallery/store, iam8bit, and what better way to capture that nostalgic, late 20th century retro video-game feel than including a SNES cartridge?

Don’t worry, you’re not going to have to dig up your SNES to play it, it’s not functional, it’s just a pretty piece of art, but that’s why the set also comes with a game code for Steam, PS4, or Xbox One, along with other goodies like a SNES style replica box, 24-page game manual, and 24×18 inch world map poster.

Heart Machine and iam8bit have also come together to offer other beautiful Hyper Light Drifter collectibles, such as a 4 disc vinyl soundtrack composed by Disasterpeace (FEZ), with album art by Heart Machine and Drew Wise, and two exclusive, vividly imaginative and stunning Gilcee prints.

Tonight You Die – An Unnerving Brutalist Cityscape Explorer

Tonight You Die – An Unnerving Brutalist Cityscape Explorer

You’re dropped of in a bleak, desolate wasteland of a brutalist city. The only signs of human existence are the lamp posts that slightly illuminate your environment and the sounds of your own echoing footsteps. As you walk around the city, you slowly begin to realize that this is it. That’s what’s here. It’s just you. You’re alone. But are you really?

The only thing that you can know for certain is that tonight, you die.

With the game title as the only clue as to what lies at the end of your questionably solitary exploration, mixed with GRYPT’s equally as ominous soundtrack, it seems as if your own lingering feeling of paranoia is the only thing that ever truly accompanies you.

Overall, the 1st person horror experience is pleasantly spooky. Especially when sitting alone in my room in the dark with nothing but grim and dissonant tones echoing throughout the place over the speakers.

Tonight You Die is available for Mac, Linux, and PC as a free (or pay what you want) game through Duende Games.

You can also check out GRYPT‘s ill-fated soundtrack, as well as other hauntingly gritty remixes below:

Both are available through TonightYouDie.com
