Bad Golf reborn as Double Fine community project23 Feb 2014
If you’ve been keeping up with Double Fine’s Amnesia Fortnight prototypes, you’ll know they’ve been whittled down to four at this point; Dear Leader, Mnemonic, Steed and Little Pink Best Bud’s (Pendleton Ward’s project.) There’s a distinct lack of Bad Golf 2 in that list, because that pitch was too visionary or something.
Ever resourceful, the Double Fine fans have decided to just make Bad Golf happen themselves. Bad Golf: Community Edition has its own thread on the Double Fine forms, as well as the blessing of Patrick Hackett (the mad genius behind the original concept) who commented:
OH MY GOD. Pleeeaaaaaaase do this. I will help in any way I can. Yes yes yes, this is awesome.
The original pitch for Bad Golf 2 was something along the lines of “attempt to play golf while other people are ramming you with carts,” which sounds like a blockbuster title waiting to happen to me.
A couple of weeks in, the 20-some strong team of fans behind Bad Golf: Community Edition has produced some in-game images (above) and some pleasingly demented work-in-progress video (below.)
Thanks to co-developer Josh for word of this.
