While it may not have been my favorite concept for a game out of Amnesia Fortnight 2014, the pitch itself for Bad Golf 2 was among the best. It was literally just Double Fine's Patrick Hackett chanting "Bad Golf 2!" four times in a row, pumping his fists while holding golf clubs. I was sold right then and there, but the project didn't make the cut as a finalist.

No matter. The community has since taken it upon itself to make Bad Golf 2 into a real game with support from Hackett. "OH MY GOD. Pleeeaaaaaaase do this," he said on the Double Fine forums. "I will help in any way I can. Yes yes yes, this is awesome."

I do hope they can carry this through to the end and they might just be able to, if the screenshot above is any indication. Hackett's original idea for Bad Golf was a four-player game in which everyone plays golf like normal, only they've all got carts and the freedom to drive recklessly. "Think of it like the PGA Tour meets the demolition derby."
