Executive Golf DX

Playdate Season One Game

Executive Golf DX

What is Playdate?

Playdate is a tiny handheld game system from Panic, the publishers of Untitled Goose Game and Firewatch. Ahead of its launch, Panic commissioned Dave to create a game to be bundled with the console as part of its first season of games.

Executive Golf DX

In Executive Golf DX, live the ultimate dream of corporate advancement by golfing your way to the top of a procedurally generated office building.

Enterprising individuals may elect to use an array of unconventional abilities while climbing the ladder of success, but what will truly drive you towards greatness in business is the quality shared by all great thought leaders: A perfect backswing.

The game has you golfing through five separate procedurally generated departments, each with its own unique environment art and obstacles.

The Soundtrack

Dave composed five tracks of silly office golfing music for Executive Golf DX, which you can listen to on Bandcamp.

Dave was also interviewed for the official Playdate Podcast if you’d like to hear more about the game’s development.
