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 won the “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. It was nominated for “Game of the Year” and “Best XNA game” in the 2009 Swedish Game Awards, and for “Best New Nordic Talent” at the Nordic Game Conference in 2009.

The game was released on Xbox LIVE Community Games in the summer of 2009.
