PGA today announced a new mobile title: PGA Jr League Safari Par-Tee, a golf game with an animal avatar. created with Niantic’s Light Ship tools. It is currently available for free download on iOS and Android.
Developed by Trigger, the program is a cartoon golf string designed for children and families. Players choose a favorite animal to play with and then hit a golf ball by dragging their finger along the swing to control the strength and direction of their swings. It has a multiplayer component where players can fight each other in 2v2 or 1v1. In addition to trying to fall below the parameter, players must face various obstacles in the course.
I had a chance to see the application in working condition. He uses Lightship’s AR aircraft detection to create a playground in the space around the player. Offers three separate bios for players: Desert Dunes, Icy Flats and Meadow. Each offers young players challenges that use different types of golf clubs to show their goals. Trigger also uses Lightship’s built-in networking features to synchronize players across the overall AR plane.
Trigger CEO Jason Yim said, “In the real world, the game Metaverse is a key mechanic that can manage not only entertainment, but also education, commerce and even utilities. We are pleased to partner with PGA to create this mobile app and help them achieve their goal of engaging young golfers through gaming and augmented reality. ”
