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.
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.
Take a look below as Christian Holland, one half of the Vertiginous Golf development team, answers the question everyone has been asking – how do you put a story into a golf game?
Vertiginous Golf is currently on Steam Early Access and will release May 6.
