I GOT IT TO THE 4th!!! My life is a success.


any chance we get the full version of this game when it comes out if we own it here?

has anyone ever hit a 2 on the first hole? it is possible but rare best iv done is a 3 on the first hole

make it where each time it randomly generates facial structure to make some lore behind it and try to add that here


Pretty fun but my big criticism would be that it very quickly gets old having to do the exact same tutorial level over and over and over. Maybe disable it after the first play?


Fun game! But it’s a real challenge. I absolutely suck at this game. There are great moments where you land a difficult shot and feel like you accomplished something- only to screw up on the next shot and end up progressing backwards. There’s definitely a difficulty curve here worth mastering for some. The game looks and sounds great as well!

Definitely give this game a shot, you’ll probably be better than me at it! Couldn’t get past the 2nd stage. Made a video with my experiences. Keep up the awesome work!


Thanks! I will have a look at your video now :)


Is there a way to flip the golfer's direction?


You're cursed to only hit right! 


The graphics - gorgeous. The music - fantastic.

Failed over hundred times probably, never got past the 3rd hole, don't care, love it!

If I ever get to the 4th, I'll call my parents, make them proud.

I love golf games, and this one is unlike any other. I am a pretty casual gamer so this is a bit intense for me. However, even when I fail I find myself starting right back up. Definitely worth checking out!


mac port pls




It's good stuff.


This might be a silly question but - can't you turn left to strike the ball from right to left??? WHAT AM I MISSING


Haha nope...

Master the right hit. You can do it.
