Just watched a few minutes and skipped through because I don't want to spoil anything, but looks nice!

Golf part seems true to the 2D classics as well from what I saw. No behind the back view. Just the top down.

When I read "dramatic story" in the description, I was a little worried they'd go overboard with some dour writing, but I'm pleasantly surprised at its sense of humor. Absolutely can't wait to play it now.

I mean when they don't actually call it drama, but GOLF DRAMA, that's basically a flag telling you "this game is somewhat of a comedy". In fact putting golf as any sort of descriptor implies humor.



Except Golf 2. Golf Without Limits.

$14.99 is a nice price point--I was expecting $19.99. Sidebar Games put a lot of heart into this title, and I'm excited to finally have a chance to play it in a few short hours.

Just amazing

Yep, Switch didn't have a AAA release I was interested in this month, but Golf Story, Steam World Dig 2, and Picross more than make up for it.

You guys hyping it up should chill. We don’t know anything about this game apart from a brief trailer. Not saying that this might not turn out great but let’s be real here!

“The next Stardew Valley”?
“Earthbound with golf”?

Come on. It’s like you want to set yourself up for disappointment.

That being said, I’m looking forward to playing it. Hope it’s good!

I agree, although I think it will do pretty well. Switch right now seems to have a bit of a 2013ish steam vibe where there's a non-saturated open-minded market

I'm not saying anything about Stardew or Earthbound, but I like Mario Golf GBC and GBA better than them anyway.... So I'll be happy!

I recently found myself utterly addicted to Mario Golf on the GBA. I had never played a MG game before and just found the mechanics really satisfying.

Needless to say I will buy this game day one if it turns out to be anywhere near as good. What is the pedigree of this developer? Do we think they can live up to the standards of a Camelot golf game?

They literally came out of nowhere. We know nothing about them. Mystery people. Apparently Australian.

Game looks good though.

Ah, I didn't know about that footage. Thanks for sharing!

But now you put me at a quandry! I want to watch that... but at the same time I don't want to spoil myself :-/

Maybe just a little peek for 5 mins or so...

Yeah, I only scanned it so I didn't spoil myself too much, but this was the sequence I felt they nailed the tone at the very least:

Worst case scenario you can always play the superior Mario Golf Advance Tour on GBA.

Haven't been following the news and coverage but always interested.
Is this something like Stardew where I can invest 30~50 hours?
Or is this a linear story game that will last about 4 hours.

Saw someone on reddit claiming to have spend 2 hrs on the first course before moving on to the next, this game has 8 courses, so if he’s correct this will be a 10-20 hr game.

and thats only mainlining right, side story stuff should bulk out another few hours I'd imagine.

Damn, man. You're tempting me.

I just picked up Thimbleweed Park for my Switch this morning.
