Developer Ben Esposito had this to say about the game:
Donut County is a wacky physics puzzle game, but it’s really held together by a story about a raccoon named BK and his best friend Mira. Before the town gets destroyed by holes, BK & Mira work together at a donut shop that turns out to be a front for the trash-stealing Raccoon Company. While Mira turns the other cheek, BK gets sucked into the job of opening up holes to steal his friends’ houses. And that’s just the beginning.
The game didn’t always have a story, though. At the start of development, Donut County didn’t even have a main character. It was just about being a hole. How do you make a game about being a hole? How do you relate to a hole? Is a hole a thing?
Your guess is as good as mine.
