Desert Golfing might be the most intriguing game of 2014. In the weirdest, arguably banal way, it’s such a subversive experience and one that plays with all of our expectations about consequences in video games. At it’s centre, a seemingly never ending series of ‘holes’. No-one really knows how many holes are in the game, but here are the first 10,000, in order. It’s beautiful.
I think what this highlights more than anything is the fact that Desert Golfing isn’t a game about golf, or any sport for that matter. It’s a journey. Speeding through the holes so quickly in this linear line really emphasizes that fact.
And I was interested to read, in this interview, that Journey the video game was actually a huge inspiration for Desert Golfing. Watching this video, it all makes perfect sense.
