A cult fencing game deserves a cute, choreographed fan film, doesn't it? Yes, it does. This Nidhogg tribute is pretty fun, especially because it's got a bunch of guys in brightly colored bodysuits stabbing each other.
Attention, new fans of bizarre fighting game Nidhogg, you might enjoy this brief, bizarre interview we did with the game's creators nearly three years ago.
There aren't enough games that involve bloody sword-duels to the death. There are fewer still that suck me in entirely. Nidhogg, out today on Steam, is one of those rare games.
Indie swordfighting game Nidhogg has been doing the rounds since 2011. It was supposed to be released in 2013, but never made it. Not to mind. It's coming out later this month.
What is Nidhogg? It's an orange man vs. a yellow man. It's a fencing football game. It's about dragons and it's the winner of the 2011 Nuovo Award, which means its great at being experimental/artsy/peculiar.
One is a zen-like game about creating a tree. One is a beautiful, abstract fencing game. Another sees its players fighting physically to win. In another of 2011's Independent Game Festival Nuovo Award nominees, you play as a dictator's cat.
