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

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!”

Vertiginous Golf Online Multiplayer Update Out Now!



Hello golfers! We know it's been a little quiet on the greens these past few months, but today we can prove the wait has been worthwhile. After countless hours of development and testing, we would like to present the Vertiginous Golf Online Multiplayer Update!

http://youtu.be/floYZgCH324

Vertiginous Golf has never been your average golf game and the developers wanted to keep that a recurring theme when it came to online. As a result we have strange and wonderful modes waiting for you all.

Arena mode - players need to sink their ball into holes spread across the spiraling course to "control" them. Picking up coloured eggs will unlock special attacks that can be performed by controlling your hummingbird, allowing you to attack your foes and defend your turf. It takes a few turns to get the hang of, but it's a crazy amount of fun.

Race mode - there are a few race courses in the game where you will be trying to navigate the course as quickly as possible. Once again you collect eggs to unlock fuel for your Influence Bug and weapons to mess with your competition. You can also turn weapons off in this mode if you want the feeling of a pure race, but where's the fun in that? :stuckouttongue:

Classic mode - this is essentially the same as the offline multiplayer where you simply play a game of golf. There are a few handy twists available; first of all you can turn weapons on or off which spices things up and you all take your shots at the same time which means you’re not sitting there waiting for your friends to make a move.

We're going to let you guys experiment with the new game modes, but as always we want all of your feedback. In the next few weeks we will be organising a series of community play sessions where you can face off against Paul, Christian and the Surprise Attack Games team to see who is the best golfer across the skies! Until then, enjoy! - Steve

Community Narrative Initiative #1 - Help Us Write The Paper



Hello Golfers. You may have noticed that we have been a little quiet here for the past month. Paul and Christian have been slaving away on their unique vision for the online multiplayer. I'm happy to report that we have just had our first internal test of the crazy new mode and there will be opportunities for you guys to help us with further testing in the coming weeks so stay tuned.

Today I want to talk to you about narrative. One of the best aspects of Vertiginous Golf is the rich world we have developed. While the major story beats are being handled internally, we thought that crowd sourcing the supplementary content from fans would be really rad so today we're throwing out our first community narrative initiative.

We're asking fans who wish to participate to write some front page material for the VG newspaper! You can write your articles about anything you think would belong in the crazy, steampunk world of Vertiginous Golf, as long as they are within the following guidelines:

  • Headlines are no longer than 7 words
  • Article body is no longer than 150 words
  • No lewd or offensive material
  • Optional to include a picture

Below you will find examples of the current news stories:

LEGAL BATTLE BETWEEN INVENTOR & PROPERTY MOGUL

The Supreme Court of Scudborough is to begin its legal proceedings between Edward V Frohlich, the Inventor of the Vertiginous Levitation System and Marcus Frederickson, the billionaire property mogul.

Marcus Frederickson claims Edwards levitation system, which is used to levitate plots of land above the Vertiginousphere and sell on to prospective Elites is illegally circumventing Scudborough's "Ground Rent" legislation. Due to Marcus's percentage share in land, this would entitle him to 90% of said Ground Rent.

Edward’s defense is based on the fact the land was purchased legitimately and due to the land no longer remaining in its place of origin, it is exempt from being subject to Ground Rent.

We will report on this as events unfold.

SEVEN HEADED DOG FOUND ON MOON!

A seven headed dog has allegedly been found on the moon says PESA Scientist.

Following the recent attempt to land an automated eye glass on the moon, which was thwarted by a rogue meteor earlier this week, Scientists have discovered imagery captured by the eye glass before it was blinded and slung out of orbit by a large particle of space meat.

Scientists conclude that the meteor and the blurry image of what can only be described as a seven headed dog are connected and people should look out for falling meat from space.

LOCAL MARKET FOUND TO SELL FAKE VEG

Penckington Market has been found to be selling fake cabbage. If anyone finds their cabbages are fake then the local fake cabbage police have urged the public to come forward and submit their fake cabbages.

Do not eat the affected cabbages as they can result in heavier flatulence than usual.

Just Updated

Vertiginous Golf has just been updated with a online multiplayer option. Play with up to 8 players and challenge each other on the new Race and Capture the Hole maps. Use 7 unique weapons to defeat your opponent.

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.
