It’s the Dystopian, Steampunk Video Game of…Golf?
Golf, the activity, is a decent way for people with a lot of money to find an excuse to take a nice walk in carefully maintained pastoral settings while periodically stopping to angrily hit things with a metal club. Golf, the spectator sport, is one of the most boring fucking things in the entire world, so when something comes along that actually makes it look visually interesting, I pay attention.
Like a video game, Vertiginous Golf, that puts the golf courses on flying cities like Bioshock‘s Columbia. I hope they deal with the notion that if your ball falls off the edge, it has the power to kill someone unlucky enough to be living in the world below.
I also like that the game promises “free stroke holes.” Even though they’re probably not what I’m thinking.
