Take a Trip Back to a Dystopian Earth in Golf Club Nostalgia

Golf Club: Wasteland Xbox

After humanity has been forced to relocate to Mars, the ultra-rich have redesigned Earth as a golf course. This once home of all civilisation is now a playground for the elite, and now you have the opportunity to play it for yourself as Golf Club Nostalgia launches on Xbox, PC, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

This isn’t your standard golf course though. Across 35 holes you will see the state of Earth as it was left behind. Explore abandoned mines, supermarkets, space stations and more. This post-apocalypse pitch and putt offers a challenge over traditional golf courses, but it is always best to have a look around; shortcuts can be found.

Golf Club Nostalgia is more than a simple golf game though; it is a narrative adventure told from a variety of different perspectives. There is the mysterious stranger who comments at the start of each hole, the astronaut’s diary which excerpts are unlocked as you play, and the stories told on the radio station. Radio Nostalgia from Mars mixes songs inspired by the planetary migration along with recollections of people who made the journey, fleshing out this highly intriguing world.

Key features include:

  • Urban Wasteland Adventure Golf – The rich fled to Mars but venture back to a desolate Earth for a round of golf. Each hole in the wasteland offers its own little story and possible puzzle to sink the perfect shot. Play through destroyed brutalist monuments, crumbling shopping malls, and abandoned museums as neon signs and poignant graffiti take swings at current events, Silicon Valley culture and humanity.
  • Three Stories Make a (W)hole – Piece together the full story of how humanity fell through three distinct sources – Details from the lone golfer’s story, who’s come back to Earth for one last game. The Radio Nostalgia from Mars broadcast gives a glimpse into the lives of those who escaped, and the narration of a “secret spectator” watching from a distance.
  • The 1% Killed the Radio Star – Be accompanied by a purposefully composed soundtrack as well as personal stories broadcasted on Radio Nostalgia From Mars. The station caters to citizens of Mars, nostalgic for Earth as they listen to music from the 2020s, and dial in to share their memories of the planet. A smooth voiced radio DJ keeps the show flowing with updates and announcements hinting to a not so glamorous life on Mars.
  • Fits Like a Glove – Three distinct modes mean every golfer can find something for their tastes. Casual players can focus just on the story and a relaxing scenic round of golf in Story Mode. Those looking for an extra challenge can beat each hole under par using skill and puzzle solving through Challenge Mode. While the total pros can try Iron Mode, where there’s almost zero room for error. Easy to grasp controls and a minimalist UI underpin the whole game so anyone can easily pick up and play at their own pace.
  • That’s a Keeper – Included with every copy of the game is the digital Golf Club Wasteland Official Soundtrack plus a Graphic Novel Art Book that further expands the back story of the lone golfer Charley in stunning visual format.

Promising a hybrid between a golf game and a strong narrative, Golf Club Nostalgia is available to download now priced at £8.39 on Xbox. Let us know in the comments how much you reckon a trip back to Earth would cost just for a round of golf!
