Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We launched the game through Early Access in order to get community feedback on the game as development progressed. Since Vertiginous Golf is such a unique experience this player feedback is invaluable. A notable community-led inclusion has been the simpler mini putt courses where only a putter can be used and the time reversal and after touch powers are not available.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will leave Early Access on May 6, 2015. In all it will have spent around 14 months in Early Access by that stage.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will be significantly larger than the Early Access version with many modes and features debuting in the full version. These include the story mode, the course creator, all the customisation options for clubs, the hummingbird and player avatars and many courses that are not in the Early Access version.

The full version will also add support for Mac and Linux.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version is the beta version of the game containing a limited set of features and courses.

You can currently enjoy a variety of courses including classic and miniputt holes as well as a limited version of the multiplayer mode.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“At launch the RRP of the game will increase to US$19.99 for the single copy and US$59.99 for the four pack.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The community have been able to get involved by providing feedback in the forum and via our community website. At this stage the game is done and prepping for release so no further community feedback will be able to make it into the launch version.

However, we hope to continue to add content and take community feedback on board and we also look forwards to seeing the courses that will be created by the community using the course creator.”

Vertiginous Golf Tees Off On May 6



Keep cool and caddy on golfers, we have some exciting news about the release of Vertiginous Golf to share!

After two years of development, we are excited to reveal that Vertiginous Golf will be launching as version 1.0 on May 6 for PC, Mac and Linux. To celebrate, here's a brand new trailer that shows off some of the more advanced features, and reveals a little from the mysterious tale that awaits our adventurous golfers out there.

Vertiginous Golf will bring 45 challenging courses, along with a fully-fledged course creator, and Steam Workshop support. There is also online and offline multiplayer - both of the regular golfing and insane humminbird warfare varieties, along with daily challenges, avatar customisation, and more.

Now that we have a release date locked in, and content is feature complete, we have to thank each and every one of you who supported us in Early Access. Thanks to your tireless play sessions, we have received real data and feedback that has helped us shape and mould the game into what is has become today. Thinking back to the very first release of Vertiginous Golf, we certainly have come a long way!

Over the next few weeks you can expect some updates from us, along with some friendly competitions and online sessions so you can get the upper hand before the game launches to the public. See you on the greens!

Sneak Peek At The Course Editor



Good afternoon golfers!

We may have been quiet on the update front, but we have certainly been working hard behind the scenes towards version 1.0 of Vertiginous Golf!

We've gathered tonnes of feedback from players taking on the Battle Arena multiplayer mode, along with making general improvements to the more traditional multiplayer modes. Now we have put our focus into player avatars, customisation, and the course editor.



The above screen shows an in-development version of the course editor. As you can see, we've tried to really simplify the process, having a handy tile system that you can build your course with. Hopefully anyone can get in there and make a course, but for those who want to dedicated whole afternoons to the process, there will be enough depth in the tools that you should be able to create courses from hell.

Just like the multiplayer, this is very much a work in progress right now. We aren't ready to reveal too much more detail, but as soon as we can, we'll get this into your hands!

Finally, we wanted to share this great video from the Mighty Games Squad who filmed a Mini-Putt Face Off on YouTube. It's great to see people having fun with the game, and we can't wait to see more from our fans!

Until next time!

“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.”
Destructiod

“I've played quite a few mini-golf and traditional golf games before, and I can't remember any of them having any kind of deep story. But Vertiginous Golf has a narrative, and an interesting-sounding one at that.”
GameSpot

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.

Dystopian Steam Punk Mini Golf

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.

Golf as you've never seen it before

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.

Local and Online Multiplayer

Enjoy a leisurely round in the sky with up to three friends. 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.

Get Creative

Design your own fiendish courses in the map editor and share with the community. Tinker for hours with the look of your clubs, hummingbird and avatar in Frolich's Emporium.
