GL Golf Networked Multiplayer

October 17, 2014 |  by  |  News/Blog  |  No Comments

We’re happy to announce that the next version of GL Golf should have turn based multiplayer through Apple’s Game Center interface! This feature should eventually make it to our other games but since GL Golf has the largest active user base we’re starting with it. Stay posted, we should be sticking to our typical three-month development cycle.

Today we’re announcing Critter Crush, our first sequel to Barnyard Blaster! We had so much fun with the original that we wanted to put out another version with more levels and other modernizations, and while we were waiting on Birdie Golf assets was the perfect time for this small project. Critter Crush is in the final testing phase and should be available later this month. Checkout the product page for more info, stay posted!

Birdie Golf Tree

September 3, 2014 |  by  |  News/Blog  |  No Comments

Things are finally starting to come together for Birdie Golf / Total Disc Golf. The artistic style is definitely changing from Nova Golf, here are a couple of the new tree models.

In other news we have a side project going as well to keep everyone here busy while the artists finish up on Birdie Golf. It’s relatively small in scope but should be tons of fun to play!

GL Golf Cup

August 26, 2014 |  by  |  News/Blog  |  2 Comments

What would happen if this year’s GL Golf tournaments were run similarly to how the PGA Tour runs the FedEx Cup? Well longtime golfer and tournament statistician d@ve asked that question and compiled what this years standings might look like. Check out the page below, we are thinking about linking this directly from the tournament page to promote a little more competition and participation. Thanks d@ve!

Birdie Golf Music Preview

August 14, 2014 |  by  |  News/Blog  |  No Comments

We just received the music for Birdie Golf / Total Disc Golf and we love it! Here is a one minute preview of one of the songs. There will be three new 5-6 minutes songs as well as a 2 minute intro. All of the great songs from Nova Golf and Disc Golf 3D are available in the pro shop, so the game will have an even larger soundtrack than expected!

Progress has been slow but steady, unfortunately real-life and other projects have interfered with our original overly ambitions release targets. We want to release a quality product and refuse to rush anything else out, so stay tuned!
