You heard the arrow, GO!

Often spotted at gaming expos and various tournaments (often clutching sizeable piles of awards,) Messhof’s Nidhogg was nonetheless turning into a bit of a creature of legend. Kind of like Duke Nukem Forever, except with the actual promise of being good.

I think I first heard about it in 2010, and it looked pretty complete even back then. But what do I know? Maybe a whole load of stick-swordsman animation frames have been painstakingly added since then. Nidhogg looks pretty much just as it always did; two swordsmen trying to get to one another’s home base, with only the risk of a pointy blade and judicious re-spawning in their way.

You know what, the release date announcement trailer will explain it just fine. Nidhogg is due on 13 January (via Steam,) for an as-yet undisclosed price. Maybe you’ll just have to duel the last person who bought it for a copy.

    I remember hearing about this on the PC Gamer UK podcast three years ago. At some point the developer decided that he wasn’t going to publicly release it, just make it available to play at various events. Now that decision has been reversed.

    It’s not really the best marketing strategy.
