24 Hour Promo & Server Issue



Hello everyone!

So you may have noticed that we're running a pretty crazy promotion on Vertiginous Golf. For the next 24 hours, anyone with a Steam account and get the game for free, to keep and play forever. After these initial 24 hours, the game will be 50% off for the rest of the week! So grab your friends, get the game now while you can, and head to those majestic greens in the sky.

The promotion has been running for a few hours already, and the sudden influx of new players online has caused some issues for our servers. Some of you may experience issues finding your friends in the online lobby systems - we are currently working on a fix that we will roll out as soon as possible. While we thought we were prepared for a steady stream of new golfers, seems that our brand of dystopian Steampunk golf brought in more players than we originally anticipated! We thank you for your patience, and urge you all to watch out for another announcement when we've got the issue under control.

Now that we have a new set of players, we can't wait to see the high scores and records be smashed! We might even organise some kind of community cup challenge in a few weeks, so make sure you stick around the community hub.

Onward and upward, to the greens in the skies.
Steve - Community Manager

“A dystopian steampunk golf game.” PERRRRRR-DOOIIIIIIIINNGGG! My heart’s back up where it belongs!”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“I think it's safe to say that Vertiginous Golf is one of the most unique mini-golf titles I've ever played, and its steampunk setting is the real capper to such an off-the-wall and rich concept. I'm quite fond of its approach to narrative within a mini-golf game.”

“Its puzzling, challenging, and deeply weird characteristics make for a unique and engaging experience that brings new life to the staidest of sports”

About This Game


Vertiginous Golf is a dystopian steam punk mini golf adventure game set in the skies above an alternate world where life on the ground is enveloped in permanent smog, constant darkness and never-ending rain.

After suffering on the ground under a haze smog and pollution, the people of Scudburough have been split in half by a lottery, with the winners heading up into the clouds to live in a floating city called New Lun-Donne. For those left below, they can get a temporary escape from the gloom through the Verti-Sphere, a device that allows them to rise virtually into the cloudy paradise to play mini golf on challenging obstacle courses floating in the sky. But something is amiss in this nation of two cities. Another voice is trying to break through the propaganda messages of peace and prosperity… the voice of an insurrection.



Chip and putt your way through beautiful golf courses floating far above the smog-covered streets below. Play through the unique story mode courses to uncover the mystery of the Verti-sphere. Enjoy 54 classic holes ranging from simple miniputt to mind-bending courses that will test even the most skilled golfers, as well a driving range and race challenges.



Take on these insane obstacle courses filled with hazards and contraptions. Look through the eyes of your mechanical hummingbird companion to explore and unlock the secrets of the green. Use the jewel encrusted beetle to control your ball once it’s in motion and make good use of your limited rewind power to redeem yourself from a bad shot.



What's better than a leisurely round of golf in the sky? A leisurely round of golf in the sky with up to three friends, of course! All the courses can be enjoyed in multiplayer either locally or online. There are also two more unusual multiplayer modes to enjoy: race each other to the finish on the race tracks or fight over control of the holes in the unique battle golf arenas whilst using a variety of offensive weapons to disrupt your opponents.



A fully featured map editor means you can design your own fiendish courses and share them with the community. Who knows what the mad inventors of you will come up with? For the more aesthetically inclined you can tinker for hours with the look of your clubs, your mechanical hummingbird companion and your avatar in Frolich's Emporium.

The UI is clunky and the story is dumb, But the game is still fun and has lots of holes with a custom course creator to add more content, If you miss the free giveaway (Oct 26th) Its still a good game worth 5-10 dollars.

This is an okay game. It can get quite confusing at sometimes though. The tracks are way to complex and hard to figure out. But all up it's still pretty good.

This is a good game.

I don't even particularly care much about minigolf. But i am really enjoying this. The presentation and style is consistent yet refreshingly unfamiliar for a minigolf game.

The physics are superb and the flawless cross-platform support make this one a win in my book.

Vertiginous Golf, is a puzzle golf game I recently got during the free giveaway event. The game couples relaxing music and visuals with golfing and physics puzzle based gameplay. The world is fantastical and steampunk, this is not a game for someone looking for a legitimate golf sim type of game.

Vertiginous Golf comes with a level creator as well! You can share these custom courses with other players custom course menu. You can even play these courses in the online multiplayer. A few other things to note are the neat interactive menus in the game, and the character customization, both are neat additions and not something I would expect coming into a game like this.

I can freely say that I have not played much of Vertiginous yet, but I enjoy the gameplay it offers. I haven't tried much of multiplayer but the population seems to be fairly small, its not surprising since I had not heard of this game until it was offered free for a day. I would recommend this game to fans of puzzle games, or even golf games, as long as they can tolerate the more fantastical feeling offered here.
