The Golf Club News Post

It’s unheard of! Developing, publishing, and supporting an independent sports games on next-generation console platforms? In 2014? The sports game landscape may have gotten smaller in the past few years, but the team at HB Studios saw an opportunity where others saw risk. The result is “The Golf Club”, a simulation golf experience that will soon hit the PS4 and the Xbox One (and is already available on Steam Early Access). The 94th edition of the Press Row Podcast features an extended 1-on-1 discussion between host Richard Grisham (@richgrisham) and The Golf Club Executive Producer Peter Garcin (@rawktron); the two discuss a host of issues, including key game design decisions, how the team navigated and processed the Early Access feedback, going through the console submission process, and the freedom and anxiety that comes from attempting to self-publish a sports game in today’s complex landscape. It’s an open, honest conversation that provides a unique look at how The Golf Club is coming together in its stretch run.

Really enjoying this episode!

Can't wait for the console release. It marks a great turn for sports videogaming and I'm excited to experience it.

And let me tell you... IT'S A BEAUTIFUL THING !!... We the gamers benefit when the power is in the user's hands and there is competition.

Sports gaming is a little bit behind in that regard.

All hail The Lord Gaben!
Clothes Customization? eh? eh?
