Vertigo is an adrenaline pumping platform racing game for up to 4 players. The game is about getting yourself from start to finish as fast as possible, and the trick is to chain powerups. Powerups make you go faster and faster, and you want to grab a new powerup before the effect of the previous one fades.

Vertigo was awarded “Pwnage Award – Best at Show All Categories” at Gotland Game Awards 2008. And the team went on to create their own company called Run Jump Duck Entertainment.
