What The Golf? Fig Campaign is Live

Follow along on a journey towards an improved version of golf that is actually fun.

What The Golf? is a new game developed by Triband, a young game studio based in Denmark. They are also working on Keyboard Sports - Saving QWERTY. Triband is trying to raise $50,000 by March 23 with stretch goals that go up to up $200,000 in funding. The game looks pretty amusing.

Here is some more information about the campaign from the official Fig post for What the Golf?


Golf is boring — Help us fix it!

Golf is always the same: perfectly round balls, 18 holes, blue sky, neatly cut grass and fancy people in nice clothes. What's not to hate? – Hate no more!

WHAT THE GOLF? is the golf game for people who don’t play golf. Every golf course is a surprising new type of golf, some brilliant or hilarious, others simply absurd.

You must have a lot of questions about our vision for golf.
