English publisher and developer Team17 has purchased the “rights and assets” of the chaotic golf simulator Golf with your friends for £ 12million, according to a report by GamesIndustry.biz.
Golf with your friends is a long-tail title that was released in Early Access in 2016, but is still played and aired regularly. The game was officially released in May 2020. Just like the title suggests, players engage in an exciting game of golf. The complication is that every course has been designed by someone who wants the players to suffer. Additional mods can make the game even wilder, including changes like the golf ball turning into a square of golf. The success of the game comes from this chaos; Once players pass the saccharine surface, they experience a hilarious yet terrifying marathon of golf torture.
“Over the past two years, GWYF has shown strong consumer demand and mass market appeal, doubling its owner base and achieving success on multiple gaming platforms,” said Debbie Bestwick, CEO of Team17, in a press release, according to GamesIndustry.biz. “GWYF is the type of intellectual property that we think is proprietary right, it’s successful and proven but still at the start of its journey. The Blacklight Interactive team can be assured that we will take great care of this incredible intellectual property. “
