The Nintendo Switch is a pretty social console. The fact that it comes with two Joy-Con controllers that can act as independent inputs for local two-player matches just goes to show that Nintendo designed the system to be enjoyed not just by one person, but multiple people at once. With that said, the upcoming Nindie release Party Golf definitely fits in with the Switch’s social nature, allowing for up to 8-players to play together.
Developed by indie studio Giant Margarita, Party Golf was built with the Unity engine. As the name suggests, this is a golfing game, albeit one that’s a little different from usual. While the objective of shooting golf balls into the goal post is still there, the game is positioned from a fully 2D perspective. Players will have to guide their balls not just in a straight line, but even up inclines and out of trenches in order to reach the goal. There are over 100 levels in the game, so prepare for some fun party moments!
YouTube channel ContraNetwork has uploaded a 10-minute video showing off a match in Party Golf on Switch. Check it out:
Party Golf will be swinging its way onto the Nintendo Switch eShop on October 19th for $15.
