Cheap Golf - Pixeljam Games
Hello all,

We're excited to announce the launch of our latest original game, CHEAP GOLF:

It's a surreal and (sometimes) 4th-wall-breaking minigolf comedy starring a mysterious AI bot named SUSAN.

It just left Early Access, and is currently 20% off this week.

If you are feeling super awesome and would like to help us get the word out, please consider retweeting this:

We hope you enjoy it!

“A very odd, easily played, and definitely interesting project, it’s a decent amount of fun, and aurally it shines,” our John said after he met the AI named Susan trying to understand humanity through the minigolf comedy game Cheap Golf. It was in early access back then and now, one year later, it’s proper done. I assume that means Susan has perfectly calibrated the game’s challenges and questions to analyse and understand humanity. Oh god, Susan is going to be so disappointed after we play Cheap Golf.

Hello Golfers,

The full release of Cheap Golf is... NOVEMBER 5TH! Hopefully SUSAN. will behave.

This will add many quality-of-life updates to the game, as well as Episode 3: Every Day We Grow.

If you'd like to help us get the word out about it, please RT this:

We just uploaded a new version (1.0.4) that addresses zooming/camera issues in 1.0.3 when dragging the flinger outside of the play area. It should work much smoother now.

Hello All,

We just released Episode 2! It should be in your current version of the game (1.0.3). We also made the following updates:

- Camera zooms out a little smoother
- Episode 1 levels got a few changes (mostly difficulty tweaks)
- Slight improvements to the editor, but it still has a ways to go
- Slo-mo threshold was reduced, so you should see it more (slo-mo is enabled when you fling a ball while it's still moving)

We also added 2 new leaderboards (for Ep. 1 + 2) and one new achievement.

We also promise it will not take a whole extra year for Episode 3 (and full release) to arrive. We are well underway on that - current estimation is about 2-3 months.


-Miles @ Pixeljam

PS - The Linux version of Episode 2 is a bit behind and should be available within the week.

Hello all,

Today we uploaded a quick adjustment to the difficulty of a few levels in the game (specifically WAT and QWEST), in an attempt to smooth out the difficulty spikes. The spikes are intentional and part of the story, but some levels are still a bit too spiky and can tend to be more frustrating than challenging.

We would rather people see the end of Episode 1 than rage quit, so if there are any levels that drive you nuts, give us feedback in the forums!

Coming very soon:

- Some smaller sets of levels to keep you occupied and entertained while we work on the bigger episodes, each with their own leaderboard.

- Drastic improvements to the editor UI, and new incentives to make and share your own levels :)

Keep on golfin'

Keep on golfin' ...
