Originally created as a bite-sized experience during the Blackthornprod Game Jam in 2021 by studio co-founder Josh Cappelli, Sleeping Giant has since spent the past year building the game up for a full release with 4 unique worlds and over 100 levels!See the game trailer hereJust like regular golf, the goal of Par is to get Cal, the game’s heroic golf ball, into the hole at the end of each level in as few moves as possible. Blocking their path are bizarre obstacles, puzzling contraptions, and treacherous Bogeys! Guide Cal through each level with approachable controls and get the upper hand by buying items from the shop like grapple hooks and laser wands! During Cal’s adventure you’ll travel across quaint towns, snowy crypts, and fungal forests as you play through over 100 utterly unique levels, all polished with Sleeping Giant’s signature visuals.Some of you might even be familiar with the studio or Par itself as the studio has been openly cataloguing the game’s development on YouTube over a series of DevLogs. Having spent the previous 3 years developing an incredibly confidential project only for it to be cancelled before release, the team wanted to take the exact opposite approach on their latest endeavour and give everyone a behind the scenes look at all the complex and niche work that goes into a game like Par. On the channel you can check out everything from playtest sessions to how the trailer included with today’s announcement was made.The game is now available on Steam for $4.99USD and will also be released on mobile as a free-to-play game, November 21, 2023.About Sleeping GiantSleeping Giant makes stylized, off-beat games that make people smile, perfectly exemplified by their inaugural 2019 mobile release, Farm Punks, a game which sees players shoot fruit out of a cannon and manage a mountaintop orchard of sentient trees. In the interim, they’ve worked alongside world renowned IPs, developed original titles, and have co-developed with other indie studios including Laundry Bear, Mighty Yell, Coat Sink, Bancy Co., and Copy Chaser.
