At long last, Nidhogg is coming out January 13, 2014


7:00 PM on 01.01.2014



The super intense and frenetic Nidhogg finally has a release date, set to come out on January 13, 2014 for Steam on Windows. We've been patiently waiting for Nidhogg ever since 2010, when designer Mark Essen was commissioned by the NYU Game Center to create a game for the No Quarter Exhibition.

Nidhogg is a territorial two-player dueling game, and one well placed blow will kill your opponents instantly. Those that have fond memories of Bushido Blade, or those that have been addicted to games like Towerfall and Samurai Gunn will want to get their hands all over this one.

Now all we need is an exact date on when Sportsfriends is arriving this month to complete the circle of insanely fun local multiplayer games.

Holy crap, Nidhogg is releasing this year!

Messhof's competitive fencing game Nidhogg has eluded many people. Everyone who comes away having actually played the game absolutely raves about it, leaving us plebeians to sit and sulk as we wallow in self-pity. So app...more

Extrasolar does exoplanet exploration, but it is more than meets the eye

When I was talking to one of the developers of Extrasolar on the show floor at PAX East, I said something that I now regret. "This looks like something I would really like, but might not appeal to a ton of other people." He r...more

Prodigy ventures to places most hybrid board/videogames shy away from

With board games continuing to increase in popularity, it is no surprise that there has been a lot of crossover between that space and videogames. Not only are a lot of board games being adapted or reimagined digitally, but s...more
