Vulture Island (by Donut Games)

Most of my favourite games by Donut Games have been of the platformer variety, so when I learned that they had a new game coming out soon and that it'd be a platformer I was pretty excited. Donut Games seem a bit shy on the social media front so there isn't a whole lot of info to go on just yet, but I thought I'd share what there is for now and add more infos to this post as and when they become available because Donut Games Platformer (not actual name. Probably not).

Official Donut dude: What we've been working on this year... Binary just uploaded.

Official Donut dude: The overview map in our next platform adventure... Coming soon!

Platformer you say? By Donut Games? Hooray and other happy noises!

Official Donut dude: We're glad to finally be able to release something new. It's an adventure-oriented platformer that will focus a lot on exploration, rather than racking up high scores Mario-style. You start on an island that you get to explore freely, speak to people you meet, gather items and unlock puzzles.

When will you shut up and take my money?

Official Donut dude: It depends on the review process, but hopefully next week. Like Traps n' Gemstones it will be a $5 app, launching with a 1-2 week introductory sale.


So there you have it folks, straight from the Donut's mouth. I'm pretty excited to play this, especially knowing the game will be out soon. If you want more infos like for example what the game is called you can ask Donut Games on Twitter here and Facebook here.

Edit: More infos added.

Their traps and gemstones metroidvania was a classic so I absolutely cannot wait for this one. (But all Donut Games are good anyways)

Their last adventure platformer was one of my all time favorite games. I think I played through out three times which I never do with games I complete.

Thanks for sharing this. I am really looking forward to this. At least once a day I find myself playing a Donut Game.
They are the best for that quick pickup and play game when waiting for the bus.

Traps n' Gemstones is probably one of my top favorites. Action Buggy would be next, it's the closest to Moon Patrol there is.
Hard to believe that there is not one game I don't enjoy playing over and over again.

The Micro Battles series are the only ones I don't own. Since I don't have wi-fi, I can't buy the IAP for premium.

I also like these devs. Excited to see anything they offer.

I'm curious though why they haven't released more information about this project yet.
