Golfie, the Rogue-lite Deckbuilding Mini-Golf Game, is Heading to Steam
Danish developer Triheart Studio has announced that their debut title, Golfie, will be a rogue-lite deckbuilding title centred around mini-golf.
The rogue-lite genre has grown a little stale over the past few years thanks to an influx of copycat titles. However, while there are surely those who are content copying, you’d be hard-pressed to find at least one developer who wouldn’t do their darndest to try and innovate. Enter duo developers Triheart Studio who want to combine traditional rogue-lite and deckbuilding gameplay with the wonderful game of mini-golf. Golfie, their debut title, is set to take the indie scene by storm with its creative combination of brilliant genres. The CEO of Triheart Studio, Sandra Fagerli, spoke a little bit about the unique nature of Golfie.
[Golfie is an] innovative and engaging mixture of genres that stands out […] [It is] a truly unique entry in the beloved roguelite category which has yet to see a spin on golf

As hard as it may be to believe, Golfie is a rogue-lite deckbuilding mini-golf game. Players will attempt to complete all 18 holes which escalate in difficulty. To aid them on their way they’ll have a deck of cards that offer unique abilities. You’ll start off with 5 lives and a small deck of basic cards. Eventually, you’ll work your way to becoming the best mini-golfer with a bunch of cards presumably stuffed in their “tour bag” – apparently that’s what the thing you keep your golf clubs in is called – alive. Here is some of what you can expect in Golfie:
Beat all 18 holes across procedurally generated levels
Build the ultimate golfing deck featuring abilities such as magnetic fields that repulse or attract the ball and the power to teleport
Collect crystals and coins scattered across each map to buy additional cards with
Enjoy the element of risk and reward as you toy with completing the hole-in-one or collecting more coins
So far the release date for Golfie is “Coming Soon”. However, between the 20th of August and the 3rd of September 2021 you’ll be able to try out a free demo of Golfie. Head on over to its Steam store page to give it a whirl and wishlist the game while you’re there.
