FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Worms Crazy Golf Announced by Team 17

Posted on Monday, August 15 @ 12:32:42 PST by


Team17 has announced a surprising new title on their blog: Worms Crazy Golf. You wouldn't think that worms have anything to do with slugging tiny balls into gopher holes on an Par 72 course, but then again, worms don't have much to do with nuclear missiles, either. Regardless, Head of Design John Dennis suggests that we're going to have another uncanny hit on our hands:

Who could have known that two of our favourite things would work so well together? While probably not an obvious combination, Worms Crazy Golf is an irreverent mash-up of our own turn-based strategy game “Worms” and everyone’s favourite turn-based game of ‘hitting little balls with sticks’.

This is anything but a formal golf title—sheep, old woman, magnets, moles, castles that teleport balls, cannons, parachute balls, time-slowing abilities, and comedy bats (of course). This is just a taste of the creativity that Team 17 has up their sleeve:

We’ve had a great deal of fun playing the game in multiplayer during development, and with four-player social multiplayer support, it has all the hallmarks of the “Worms” brand: the trash-talking, pressure to make the shot, terribly unhelpful ‘advice’ from opponents, and often hilarious consequences when that risky shot that could have won the game goes terribly wrong. If players get half as much enjoyment out of it as we’ve already had, then we’ll be very, very happy.

Worms Crazy Golf is set for release this year for PSN, iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and PC via Steam.
