Cursed to Golf

Entrant 2023


Cursed to Golf is a challenging adventure where every shot counts. Players are tasked with making it out of Golf Purgatory to become a Golfing Legend. With insane hazards, otherworldly power-ups and tons of replayability, will you make it back alive or will you fore-ever be… Cursed to Golf!? Play as The Cursed Golfer, after a freak accident takes you out as you're about to take the winning shot of an international tournament, you get trapped in Golf Purgatory! Legend says that playing through the 18 devious holes across Golf Purgatory will get you back to the land of the living and, more importantly, to the trophy you were about to win. Each course is governed by a ghostly Legendary Caddie, who will tutor you in the mystical ways of ethereal golf to aid you on your quest for redemption and revival. Cursed to Golf blends mechanics from golf games, platformers, deck builders and roguelikes to form a brand new genre - the Golf-Like! Make your way through a hole within the PAR Count or the curse of Golf Purgatory will take you back to the beginning of the course! To add to the challenge, these courses don't just have bunkers and rough spots but are also chock full of mad obstacles like high powered fans, spikes, TNT boxes, teleporters and a whole load more. It's all par for the course in this twisted take on the classic sport! Being cursed to play golf forever in the eternity of Golf Purgatory has its benefits, too! Use Birdie-Eye to catch a view of the whole course and see what trials lie ahead. PAR Count running low? Luckily, gold and silver Shot Idols are peppered throughout the holes, smashing through them with a cinematic flourish will replenish your shots. Handy dandy Ace Cards will turn the odds back in your favour, channelling your otherworldly powers to manipulate the game in incredible ways. Scattershot, U-Turn, Rocketball and Mulligans are just some of 20+ cards you have up your sleeve to turn the tide back in your favour!
