What the developers have to say:

“Vertiginous Golf is currently in the alpha stage of development. This means that the game is still being made and will be improved upon on a regular basis. Updates will add new features and content, as well as optimisation, bug fixes and polish. Please give us feedback and report bugs, and we will continue to improve the game for you!

Why Early Access?
We're planning a very open and community-driven development through the full Early Access process until the full launch later in 2014. Players who buy into the Early Access can expect to have input into development decisions as well as frequent updates with new content and features along the way.

Development Time?
We don’t have a definite development-time for Early Access right now, we hope to have all features completed by September 2014 and launch the full feature version in October 2014. However this all depending on the Early Access development process and time, things can always take a bit more time than expected.

Price?
In development for PC with Mac and Linux versions planned, Vertiginous Golf will launch on Steam Early Access at March 7th 2014 for $15. The final launch price for the game will be $20 so Early Access backers will effectively get a 25% discount.

What about the Community?
When thinking about Steam Early Access and our basic roadmap for the project, we decided that we wanted to give the community the biggest input possible into the development of the game. That's why we’ve built an extensive Community hub - it's a place that we can share our development progress, ask for your opinions, and work with you to create a game that everyone can enjoy.

When the game arrives on Steam Early Access March 7th, we will be opening up our development process to everyone. We'll be holding regular votes on this site asking which features you want developed first, along with a chance to suggest your own features and even have a hand in crafting the universe of Vertiginous Golf.

So thank you for joining us on this amazing quest to deliver the best dystopian steampunk golf game ever made. We truly appreciate your support and now we're looking forward to involving each and every one of you in the future of the game!”

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!

New update & Multiplayer Battle Madness Fun Times!



Hello golfers!

After the exciting release of our alpha online multiplayer offerings, Paul and Christian have been hard at work tweaking and making changes to the entire game as it stands thus far. These updates have been rolled into today's larger update, which should have some exciting changes for you all to explore.

First of all, we have reworked the tutorial system in an effort to convey the skills you will need to successfully navigate the intricacies of Vertiginous Golf. Instead of having one long hole that gives you a once over introduction, we have spread the tutorial out over a number of holes, each one introducing a new gameplay mechanic that you are forced to use. Even if you are a veteran of our courses, we'd love to hear your feedback on the new system.

Many of you have been asking for this feature, and I'm happy to report that the guys have implemented a previous shot power marker to the HUD! Now you can see exactly how hard you hit your previous shot in an effort to help you judge that mulligan to perfection. There are also some general tweaks to the HUD as a whole, but this is by far the biggest, and best new feature!

We have also changed the layout of some holes. We found that while the sadists among you don't mind losing 328,764,823 shots to a tricky obstacle, it can be a little offputting for those coming into the game for the first time. So now the less advantageous routes have been made a little easier, with a few barriers put up here and there to prevent some of the mishaps that happen along the way. If you want to get the best possible score however, you are going to have to trek down some of the wilder paths on each course, which should provide a nice balance between a calm, relaxing golf game and the "Dark Souls of mini-golf" references we have become known for.

COMMUNITY BATTLE NIGHT - PLAY WITH US ONLINE!


Now that we have a functioning online multiplayer offering, it's time to meet up and have some fun! We're going to be hosting a couple of community battle nights where you can play with the developers (and myself) in the epic battle mode! Considering we are all spread out across the globe, we've got three time slots available.

TUESDAY NOVEMBER 11 - 8:00PM - 9:00PM PT (Vancouver)


Log in and battle Christian to the death!

TUESDAY NOVEMBER 11 - 8:00PM - 9:00PM GMT (UK)


The elusive Paul will be logging onto the servers to deal out some golfing pain!

WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 12 - 8:00PM - 9:00PM AEDT (Melbourne)


Think you can beat me? Let's find out!

I've set up the time slots as events on Steam, so if you already own Vertiginous Golf, you should get a notification to remind you to log into your closest region!

Well folks, see you on the greens!

About This Game

Vertiginous Golf is a physics based first person exploratory mini golf game set in a steampunk alternative universe. You travel from a Victorian world of eternal rain to a sun-drenched realm high above the clouds known as the Vertiginousphere, where a game of equally challenging and relaxing mini-golf awaits you. Vertiginous Golf elevates mini golf to a more mature level than the typical casual and child-orientated mini golf games currently available.

The players navigation tools include a putter, chipping wedge, a set of cameras placed at strategic positions on the holes and a fully controllable first person mechanical humming bird that is used to help plan the player's route through the holes.

Crowdsourced Development
