Take a Swing at Escaping Purgatory


Cursed to Golf | Featured

Okay, normally I’m not the person that’s gonna be writing up a sports game. But when you throw in beautiful pixel art, rogue-like mechanics and a quirky premise, I’m officially game. Which brings us to news today from Thunderful and Chuhai Labs. They’re bringing a strange new adventure to PC and Switch in 2022 called Cursed to Golf.

Here’s the delightful premise in a nutshell:

You play as The Cursed Golfer, trapped in Golf Purgatory after a lightning strike stops you in your tracks just as you are going to take the winning putt in an acclaimed golf tournament! Unfortunately there are no mulligans in life, so to lift the curse and ascend back to the land of the living, you’ll need to play through the 18 dungeon-like holes Golf Purgatory, a feat only possible for a true Golfing Legend. Divided into 4 distinct biomes, each area of the course is governed by a ghostly Legendary Caddie, who will aid you on your quest for redemption and revival. Are you up to par with the mythical challenges of Golf Purgatory…? Will you ever be able to reclaim your corporeal form…? Will you be crowned a Golfing Legend…? Or will you forever be… Cursed to Golf!?

The game features tons of the usual golf traps and more exotic stuff like TNT, teleporters and more. It also lets you modify your chances with Ace Cards. They can change your luck for the better, offering amazing abilities to even the odds. Layer that with great music and lush artwork, and I think this is a golf game I can get behind.
