** ''TabletopGame/{{Gorkamorka}}'' has been described as Film/MadMax with [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orks]]. The game revolves around bands of Orks roving the deserts of the desolate world Angelis, fighting each other in ramshackle vehicles while [[ScavengerWorld searching for scrap]], adding communist goblins and scientist mutants, and for some HilariousInHindsight goodness, [[Film/MadMaxFuryRoad pale-skinned humans who really want to be orks and are good with tech]].

* Many of the ''{{Wild ARMs}}'' games have elements of this, as did the anime, with VideoGame/WildARMs3 being the straightest example (the others all have prominent oceans and forests). Like ''Journey'', crosses over with the Burned-Out Earth, though, since Filgaia as a planet is slowly dying.

Added DiffLines:

* Similarly on ''Series/{{Earth2}}'', the equipment and the costumes of the Eden Advance survivors (survivors of a crashed advanced scout ship that arrived at an Earth-like planet ahead of the main colonial transport) lent themselves to a DesertPunk feeling in many episodes, although the planet G-889's terrain ''was'' more varied than just a [[SingleBiomePlanet desert planet]], and the group experienced different seasons as they traveled toward their original target destination. The DesertPunk equipment included futuristic Humvee trucks and dune buggies, cool guns, high-tech but utilitarian survival gear, and costumes that became more rugged and patched up as time wore on for the group on their journey.

* Pandora in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}''.
** Downplayed in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', as we see Pandora isn't [[SingleBiomePlanet all desert]], there's other environments like tundra, grasslands, and volcanoes.

* Pandora in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}''.
** Downplayed
''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' invokes very Mad-Max like look-and-feel thank to be mostly desert and having a lot of remnants of mining equipment and towns in various states of decay and numerous garbage dumps. The lore for the planet states that it has orbit with high eccentricity, making climate hot and dry at short 'summer' and chilling cold at longer 'winter' causing most local species to hibernate at local winter. Since ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', as we see Pandora isn't [[SingleBiomePlanet all desert]], there's other environments like tundra, grasslands, 2}}'' is set several years later (likely at local 'autumn'), it features much more diverse landscape, though there is still no trees and volcanoes.vegetation is scarce even at more hospitable areas.

* ''Webcomic{{Suihira}}'' takes place on a desert planet, though is skews toward fantasy.

* The album ''Dopesmoker'' by Sleep has this sort of setting. It's a concept album about the holy pilgrimage of the Weedians as they journey across a vast desert, following the smoke towards riff filled lands. It's like a stoner metal Book of Exodus. The album's iconic cover artwork depicts a caravan of hooded figures with gas masks (that are implied to basically act as bongs) travelling over the sand dunes, with two moons in the sky and a space ship on the horizon. Needless to say, it rules.
