The demo for Boss Golf has been updated!
Download information and more, as always, are here!
New for this version:
- Updated user interface for more fluid gameplay
- Added option for adding rotation to your shots
- Physics and other tweaks
- Sound and particle effects
So there you go!
This may or may not be the last demo version of the game before entering alpha, as I plan to spend the rest of this and the next month into getting the AI and the management elements into the game. Still up for planning, though.
Now for some things I’ve built while using this new version!
That’s all for now, folks. Don’t forget to give us your feedback on our forums!
As detailed in the previous Quickie, I’ve updated the Boss Golf demo to bring it to version 0.04 of the Terrain and Drive demo!
As below you can download it Here!
The focus of this demo was on quality of life improvements and bug fixing. The ball deceleration/bouncing now works as expected, trails and shadows were improved, and I added some particles to make the game feel more polished! This is what happens when you drive:
And this is an awesome chip shot I performed, got painstakingly close to the hole too!
And even some water particles! (Only on the water you’ve placed, though! The system needs to be reworked a bit to sync with the water outside the build area)
So there you go! Gameplay is getting nicer and nicer. One of these days I wanna sit down and make a video showing how to build a nice hole. And do it Bob Ross style, with trees and hills and rivers! So there’s something to look forward to!
Next week will be focused on more polishing and weeding out some bugs, as well as improving the UI. Perhaps I’ll even add paths and bridges! We’ll see!
For now, enjoy the demo! Don’t forget to drop by our subreddit to give us your feedback, and don’t forget to like our Facebook page!
Have a nice weekend!
This week was particularly difficult for me as I had to fight exhaustion coupled with being sick. Couldn’t find the energy to work on the game very much. But was able to finally progress on development and finish last week’s tasks!
To that end, I’ve updated the Demo so that you too can give a try on the new features.
Here’s a nice and challenging course I built in it:
You can provide your feedback on our subreddit!
I’ve just finished building and packaging the latest demo!
You can find it here!
The focus of this demo is on the new terrain features for drag and painting the terrain/decoration, as well as new flatten terrain functionality, and the water!
Any bugs you find, let me know! Any suggestions you have, let me know!
As always, you can find me easily on Boss Golf’s discord channel, right here!
Hope to hear from you guys soon!
I’ve packaged the current version of the game into a nice terrain demo. It allows you to place tees and corresponding holes, change the tiles in the landscape, as well as edit the height of the terrain.
-Mouse click does most things, mouse right click cancels actions and returns menu
-WASD and arrow keys pan the camera
-Mouse wheel and Q E zoom in and zoom out
-Holding mouse wheel and moving the mouse will rotate the camera
So you can download it here!
Give it a try, and comment anything you found interesting/annoying/awesome!
(Also, take screenshots!)
