100ft Robot Golf is a sports game I can get behind


What a fun idea

An email showed up in my inbox with the words “100ft Robot Golf,” and I couldn’t click it soon enough. That’s the title of the next game from Roundabout studio No Goblin. It looks great.

This isn’t merely standard golf with giant robotic characters. They can wreck cities and anything else standing in their way, potentially to the detriment of competitors, just as you’d hope. They can play on the moon, or in a volcano, or wherever the hell they want, really, because they’re robots.

Multiplayer will support up to four players with split-screen and online, but I’m most interested in the single-player campaign. According to No Goblin, there will be “excitement, romance, and thrills” with “some of the cheapest ’90s-inspired mecha animation ever committed to screen.” Thinking back on the cheesy FMVs in Roundabout, yeah, this should be fun.

It’s also worth mentioning that this destructive form of golf happens in real time (though there are also options for traditional turn-based play and custom rulesets).

100ft Robot Golf releases next year and will be available first on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR.
