What you're looking at, right there above this text, is a 620px-wide swath of Wonderputt, the best 15-minute putt-putt game I've ever played.

Granted, I'm not exactly a golf aficionado, but Wonderputt -- designed by Damp Gnat and published to Kongregate -- is tightly designed, with totes adorbs animation and an elegant shooting mechanic complemented by surprisingly robust physics.

Wonderputt is actually a follow-up of games like Kongregolf and Adverputt, also by Damp Gnat. What ties all of these games together is the way each hole intersects with a different part of the course, giving the entire project an M. C. Escher-esque level of cohesion lacking from minigolf courses that have to follow those pesky laws of physics.

Play Wonderputt here, and be sure to check out the work-in-progress blog for stills and concept art.

FIFA 15 puts priority on emotions and giant dogpiles

Last month, I did my best to tell you what EA Sports wanted to put emphasis on for its three big sports titles this year. Then, it went and undermined me by releasing videos that say exactly what I wrote. In the unfortunate ...more
