GolfTopia brings the golf of the future to the Steam of today
It's just your typical retro-futuristic golf management sim, tower defense, pinball hybrid. Nothing to see here!
GolfTopia is available on Steam today, courtesy of MinMax Games, the developer and publisher announced today in a press release. The two-man team's previous projects include Space Pirates and Zombies 1 and 2.
In GolfTopia, which until today had been available in Early Access, players turn a small bit of land into a "mega-resort." They can stick to classic attractions, but where's the fun in that when you could just as easily plant a burning ring of fire? And, you know, other such things.
"GolfTopia aims to create a humorous management tycoon experience fused with wacky physics-based golf mechanics," reads a press release, adding shortly thereafter that, "Beauty is only turf deep; as every tree, every blade of rough, every bump and roll of the terrain changes how golf is played."
Of course, you want your visitors to be happy, so they'll return for subsequent outings. You also have to worry about managing foliage and pests, using robotic workers and defensive turrets. Yours will be the golf course that has it all!
Speaking of having it all, here's a list of official game features:
Surely you'll have a rough time thinking of other recent golf sims that pack so much in a single package. When's the last time a Tiger Woods or Mario Golf title let you set up defensive turrets?
GolfTopia costs $19.99 USD and is not offered with a launch week discount in place like has become so common in the industry, but that oversight probably won't make playing the game any less enjoyable unless you dwell on it excessively. And why would you do that?
