If there’s one thing the last year living through a global pandemic and lock down conditions has taught us all it’s that we need to switch off from the world and look after our own state of mind more often than we probably were before. But what has that got to do with golf and video games? Playtonic Friends has partnered with Okidokico, creators of the chart topping OK Golf, to announce the third title under its new publishing label which sets out to answer that very question.
A Little Golf Journey is a relaxed, playful experience built around a stripped back version of the game of golf where it’s all about the journey, not the driver. Explore diverse destinations, uncover each course’s secrets and tee off on the most relaxing round you’ve ever experienced.
“With our previous title, OK Golf, we received so much feedback from players about how relaxing they found the experience but we really thought we could take that side of it further and that’s where the core ideas for A Little Golf Journey came from.” commented Charlie Goatly, Co-Founder at Okidokico “We’ve removed all those stressful elements of a traditional round of golf and replaced them with beautiful imagery, a soothing soundtrack and a narrative adventure layer for those who want to seek it out. For us, it was all about creating a game we could truly escape into and get away from the pressures of daily life”
Gavin Price, CEO of Playtonic, added “After a year of nothing but home schooling, video calls and hardly leaving the house, the idea of not a round of golf instantly grabbed the Playtonic Friends team and we knew we wanted to help the guys at Okidokico make their next vision a reality. A Little Golf Journey is the anti Souls-like; there’s no pressure or frustration, just a pure, relaxed experience which is as deep as the player wants it to be.”
A Little Golf Journey will be launching on Steam for PC and Nintendo Switch later this Summer – join in the conversation on the official channels.
