A Short Hike

Platform(s): Xbox One, PS4, PC, Switch

What is it? A relaxing indie adventure where you make your way to the summit of a peaceful mountainside. 

Average time to complete: Two hours

In a Short Hike from developer adamgryu, you play as a bird called Claire as you try to make your way to the top of a mountainside in the serene Hawk Peak Provincial Park. Meeting other hikers along the way, you can climb, hike, and even soar through the sky as you explore at your own pace. There are also chances to do a spot of fishing, and collect hidden treasures. You can make your way to the summit in quite a short time and finish the game, or you can just take things slow and enjoy the peaceful landscapes of this delightful, pixelated world.

Donut County

Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch, iOS, Android

What is it? You play as a raccoon who gobbles up a city with a giant, remote-controlled hole. I’m dead serious. 

Average time to complete: Two hours

If the product description isn’t enough to sell you on Donut County alone, just take a look at that average time to complete. You’re signing up to a breezy two hours of animal antics, millennial humor, and the chance to engulf an entire city into an ever-expanding hole. That’s a lot to pack into just 120 minutes but, by Zeus’ beard, we wouldn’t have it any other way. 

Donut County is neither particularly challenging or lively, but eating up every person and thing as the ominous hole is a strangely satisfying experience, and creator Ben Esposito’s internet humor-inflected writing driving the story is merely the cherry on top. There’s even an underlying metaphor about the damage of gentrification on local culture if you want something to chew on come the end credits but, at its core, Donut County is a small shot of therapeutic catharsis.
