Minigolf Maniacs a Dynamix Casualty?
10:26 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

A member of the Dynamix development team has just contacted us with a hint towards a game that was still in early development by this seemingly doomed company. Minigolf Maniacs was in the pre-Alpha stage of development, and not even the entire feature set had been determined; however there was indeed a Mac OS X version of the game in the works even at this early stage.

The full-3D OpenGL minigolf game is a bright and colorful sim of this putter-based sport with a cast of cartoonish characters. While this is no Tribes 2, Dynamix developed a whole host of software for Sierra besides teamplay-based shooters, and Minigolf may be left orphaned by the supposed closing of this very large development company.

While there may be some hope that this game will be picked up and finished, the outlook is grim; visit the Minigolf Maniacs site while you can for screen shots, concept sketches and character galleries.
