So here's an odd one. With little fanfare or notice, a new Links golf title launches on Steam. The title is developed by TruGolf, a developer formed after the dissolution of the original dev, Access Software/Indie Built, by pretty much the same staff, so this isn't just the name coming back, it's a legitimate continuation by the original devs. TruGolf is also essentially a sister label for Big Finish Games, the developers of Tex Murphy: Tesla Effect.
The title is free to play, without any obnoxious microtransaction, just paid expansions for additional course (with 5 available in the free version).
After doing some research, it appears that TruGolf recently reacquired the rights to the Links series and that this title is based on their existing E6 Golf sim used for their peripheral-based home golf sims. They have also re-released some of the classic Links titles on GOG last week, so it's nice to see these games out of licensing limbo. This follows the similar journey they company took with their other big series, Tex Murphy, which was also lost in a licensing limbo for years before Big Finish/TruGolf had their rights restored.
I haven't played the game yet. It looks similar to the classic titles, with a three click, timing based interface. I can't speak to it's quality but it's interesting to see a formerly big series like this reappear out of nowhere like this.
