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 golfSandra Fagerli ~ Triheart Studio

What Is Golfie?
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 genereated 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
