Blending cool-looking puzzle golf and a dauntingly familiar look at humanity’s potential future is Golf Club Wasteland, a new project announced by Untold Tales and Demagog Studio.
In Golf Club Wasteland, 99% of human life has been wiped out at the hands of consumerism, and Earth is now just one huge golf course for the ultra-rich (who apparently fled to Mars). You’ll be playing through this post-apocalyptic course for one last round, piecing together the fall of humanity in between each successful putt.
Each hole presents its own story, sometimes offering up puzzles to pull off the perfect shot. You’ll be playing through “destroyed brutalist monuments, crumbling shopping malls, and abandoned museums,” listening in to a ‘secret spectator’ who watches your every move and learning about the events that transpired through environmental storytelling.
We’ll have to wait until we can get our hands on it to be completely sure, but we’re already pretty sold by the trailer above – the golf itself looks satisfying, like it should be, and the aesthetic is super-pleasing to the eye. Perhaps this is one to watch out for?
If you are interested, you’ll be pleased to know that Golf Club Wasteland will launch on Switch and other platforms in August. It’ll boast a Story mode as well as the more difficult Challenge and Iron modes – the latter of which leaves “almost zero room for error”.
