Pixeljam crowdfunding the extremely silly Cheap Golf

The very prolific Pixeljam (they of Dino Run) are having a bit of an experiment with Kickstarter. The crowdfunding site has recently started offering seven-day campaigns, and these guys are braving the format with a splendidly silly-sounding mini-golf game, Cheap Golf [Kickstarter page]. With lots of jokes. Oh, and even more bravely, they've set things up so you'll receive reward tiers even if the campaign…

Dangerous Golf Announced By Ex-Criterion Devs

DANGEROUS GOLF Say those two words aloud with me now and notice the smiles we've broken into. Dangerous Golf [official site]. Yeah, that's the stuff. And this is before I even mention that it's a golf game about smashing things. Or that makers Three Fields Entertainment were founded by the co-founders of Criterion Games and include a fair few folks who worked on Burnout and…

Roundabout Devs’ 100ft Robot Golf Is What You’d Expect

100ft Robot Golf [official site] - there's a fantastic game name for you. Pretty much everything it is can be deduced from that name. The second game from Roundabout folks No Goblin, it'll see giant golfbots playing on - and smashing through - courses across cities, mountains, and moons. It's golf with 100-foot robots, see? Okay, a PC release isn't confirmed yet, but I'm fairly…

Feature: Giddy

Hands On: Vertiginous Golf

There are some genre descriptions I see and my heart sinks. "A new twist on tower defence!" Sink. "Adding an F2P model to classic racing!" Siiiiiink. "An update to a Myst-style adventure" Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiink. "A dystopian steampunk golf game." PERRRRRR-DOOIIIIIIIINNGGG! My heart's back up where it belongs! That is the superb explanation given by indie publisher Surprise Attack Games, just announced as publishing the superbly named…

If You Like Golf, A New Videogame About Golf Is Coming Out

It seems to me as though golf games have always looked the same across the various hardware generations, even though they clearly haven't. And not just in the sense of always featuring a man wearing bad trousers and standing on a lawn - I mean that these are the games where my eyes have most scaled and adapted to what the technology of the day…

Taking A Swing: Tour Golf Online

On seeing the news that there was to be a golf game made with the CryEngine3, my heart went a-pitter-pat. I've never been a golf game player, beyond the utterly wonderful Mario Advance Golf for the GBA (WHY NO SEQUEL, NINTENDO? WHYYYYYYYY?!), so it's not like I'm craving playing this generation's Links. It's just, well, I'm craving looking at this generation's Links, I think. Remember…

Impressions: Wonderputt

Lots of people are talking about Wonderputt, even though it’s a Flash crazy golf game...wait, come back! It’s a Flash crazy golf game with alien abductions and rocket ships! I can’t help but notice that people are still walking away, pretending to have urgent appointments elsewhere, perhaps with more complex and worthy games. Well, forget those games for a minute. I made Wonderputt sound zany,…

Line Golfer

Via the magic of Indie Games, I found this rather intriguing little advert-cum-game on the Wrigley's site. It's a cute little golf game, where you draw your own course in the Flash window, and then play it. Create something great, like for instance the World Exclusive Rock, Paper, Shotgun course, and you can publish it for the world to play. Clearly this is a way…
