Chuhai Labs’ Thunderful and Cursed to Golf are coming to Switch’s fairways this summer. Launched at today’s Future Games Show, this highly anticipated title calls itself ‘Golf-Like’, blending roguelike elements with the calm, relaxing sport of golf.
That name is a little misleading as this looks like the kind of golf we have want play. The sport has already mingled with a number of different genres, but like a wooden bat, it looks like this is going to be a hard hit that misses the bunkers.
Here are a few details about the game from the press release:
In Cursed to Golf you take on the role of the cursed golfer trapped in the Golf Purgatory after a lightning strike has stopped you. To ascend back to the land of the living, you must play through 18 dungeon-like holes. These hellish holes feature teleporters, TNT, high power fans and other challenges that will put your skills to the ultimate test in a “golf-like” loop where you will golf, die and golf again. Not to mention the bosses you must defeat if you want to lift your curse and escape your fate.
You can get help in your quest in the form of ace cards. These cards give you access to world-changing trick shots that freeze time, recalibrate mid-air shots, freeze otherwise dangerous waters, and more. Not only are these cards bloody fun, but they are essential if you want to hit all 18 holes within PAR and avoid having your curse send you back to the start and forcing you to play your way back again.
The name “Golf Purgatory” sounds like something we dreamed up in our own nightmares, but visually it looks heavenly. The cursed golfer looks like an adorable little zombie kid who just wants his old life back, and the spritework is absolutely adorable. So see for yourself what golf hell looks like!
Soon you’ll be able to tee off at over 80 different holes and four unique biomes – summer isn’t here yet that but far away! There will also be online leaderboards and daily challenges that will keep you swinging and dying.
You can try out the first biome in a free, limited-time demo available on Steam if you want to give the game a shot right now.
