The original Kickstarter game, High Strangeness, is set for release on May 6 photo
The original Kickstarter game, High Strangeness, is set for release on May 6
by Alessandro Fillari

Ever since the big Kickstarter boom of 2012, there's never been a short supply of developers looking to get their next title going through crowdfunding. From metroidvania action-RPG titles referencing the golden years of games, to epic adventures games seeking to redefine a genre, there's certainly no shortage of creativity despite the volume. But while people often look at 2012 as the year crowdfunding really took off, there have been many successes before that. 

Back in 2009, a couple of guys decided to take some advice from a friend and use a neat little website called Kickstarter to fund their project. That title was High Strangeness, a 12-bit action adventure title (yes, you read that right) referencing the 8 and 16-bit eras of gaming. With their final funds reaching over $1500, they ended up becoming the first successfully funded videogame project on Kickstarter.

And now after nearly six years, the folks at Barnyard Intelligence Games have teamed with Midnight City to get their quirky, and very clever throwback title out for fans.

Dystopian steampunk mini-golf is now a thing in Vertiginous Golf photo
Dystopian steampunk mini-golf is now a thing in Vertiginous Golf
by Alessandro Fillari

What happens when you get the developers of those old Nabisco mini-golf Flash games and have them make a new type of mini-golf title? Well evidently, you get something completely off-the-wall and bizarre, which feels more like a high-concept take on mini-golf that somewhat borders on existentialism in the industrial-era before the dawn of the 20th century. This sounds a bit heavy, but I assure you it's not.

To go from Flash games on Nabisco.com to making a steampunk-style mini-golf game focusing on the trials of classism is a pretty awesome jump, I'd say. But don't think of this as an ultra-serious title. In Vertiginous Golf, you get to experience mini-golf in a more arcade style, over-the-top way. And that's certainly saying a lot, as the purpose of mini-golf is take make things interesting for non-golfers.

After a year in Early Access, the developers have been steadily releasing updates to the game while listening to the community in preparation for their upcoming release. And it looks as though they've got a lot in store for its existentialist mini-golf title.
