Fable: Coin Golf draws upon the wealth of traditional British pub games like Shove Ha’Penny, Bar Billiards, and Skittles, then combines them with elements from very popular modern puzzle games to create a challenging skill-based game that is entirely in keeping with the Fable pub game universe.

Played from an overhead perspective, your quest is to rid the land of evil and conquer each area by getting your Hero Puck into the Pillar of Light in as few shots as possible.
Obstacles, hazards and pickups litter the way challenging you to think carefully about the route that you take. Take as few shots as possible, thereby earning large bonuses that affect the area score. Scores can also be increased by performing various feats around the table. Gold earned from these areas can be transferred to your Fable III game on Xbox 360 or PC.

Fable III is set 50 years after the events of Fable II on the continent of Albion where the Fable series is set. The old monarch, the hero of Fable II, has died and left the Kingdom of Albion to Logan, the player’s older brother. Some characters allude to how Logan has “changed” in the last four years, and is excessively tyrannical now. After a traumatic event that Logan forces upon the player, they escape Logan’s castle along with their mentor, Sir Walter Beck and their servant, Jasper (voiced by John Cleese). The player then starts to gather allies to aid in a revolution against Logan. The allies they gain include the “Dwellers,” a nomadic community that lives in the mountains; Major Swift and Ben Finn from the Royal Army in command of a remote fort; Page, the leader of the “Bowerstone Resistance”; and Kalin, the leader of Aurora, a desert land across the ocean. When attempting to gain the support of Kalin, the hero learns that a creature called the “Crawler, ruler of the Darkness,” the forces of the Darkness which have already devastated Aurora, intends to exterminate all life in the Kingdom of Albion. It is revealed that Logan’s reason for treating his people so harshly is to raise money for an army to defend against the Crawler.
The player then leads a revolution and becomes the King/Queen, at which point the player is given the choice to keep the promises made to those who aided in the revolution at great expense to the treasury, or betray those promises in order to raise money for the defense of Albion through industrialization and using natural resources. The player can also utilize the treasury money for personal purposes, or use personal money in the treasury. The player can use the kingdoms money to invest in property or waste. If the player chooses to be a “good” ruler, the treasury will be vastly drained and the only way the player can offset this is by transferring several million gold from their personal funds to the treasury. With 6,500,000 gold in the treasury at the time of the Crawler attack, the player will be able to fully fund an army that can successfully defend the entire kingdom. With no money in the treasury and thus no army to defend Albion, the civilian casualties inflicted by the Crawler’s attack amount to 6,500,000. If this happens, the world will be largely absent of civilians upon completion of the main quest. If the player passes lots of time by sleeping, civilians will start to return, but they will react hostilely to the monarch’s presence, regardless of whether they previously acted as a benevolent or evil ruler.

    I saw the Coin Golf game over at GDC where they were also showing off Fable III in 3D on the PC. Both games looked like a lot of fun, and it’s always good to have one game build on another. :)
