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.

Enjoy!

-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'

Cheap Golf [Twitter page, apparently] was one of the first projects to try out Kickstarter’s week-long fundraisers, a silly scratchy project from Pixeljam offering a minimalist minigolf game, with extra nonsense.

It came out this week (in early access), having previously raised its $9,000 goal via a splendid figure of 666 backers, and it’s – well, it’s as silly as it looked. And quite fun. (more…)
