The rules are simple. Reach the other side and kill anyone that stands in your way. Deftly parry and rend their throats, riddle their bowels with arrows, or squish their brains between your toes. The wurm cares not for chivalry.

UPDATE!! Localization + Matchmaking + New Costumes

v2017112201

Localized in 17 different languages (English, German, Danish, Spanish, Finnish, French, Italian, Japanese, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Brazilian, Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Turkish, and Chinese)

Matchmaking update: We reorganized the matchmaking system so that players will have a better chance at finding a match. There is no more ranked toggle-- all online games found through matchmaking are now ranked. Match settings have been locked to streamline the menu screens.

None of the matchmaking updates change the way “invite a friend” works, so that still behaves just like local multiplayer.

We’ve added a few new (cosmetic) costume pieces, which unlock as you play online games and against strangers. You can change your costume from the Online menu.

“No Gore” confetti effect

Bug Fixes:
Fixed Arcade Highscores
Longsword now blocks while walking
Low stance Dagger now blocks slides
Added invisible wall to left side of center Airship room
Other things that I can’t remember


Thanks to our Discord community https://discord.gg/nidhogg for finding some of these!

New Level: "PAX Place"

We had a lot of fun showing off Nidhogg 2 at PAX West last week. It was great meeting fans and watching new players get into the game. We had a cozy corner booth as a part of the Indie MegaBooth which is a huge block of indie games on the main floor of the convention. We were selling some T-Shirts, Hats, and the game soundtrack on CD and Cassette tapes. You can get all of that stuff online now (even a pink vinyl) through our bandcamp page





Nidhogg 2 was secretly chosen to be the final round of the Omegathon We wanted to do something special for the competition, so we made a PAX/Seattle themed level called "PAX Place" (like Pikes place.... get it??) complete with dead fish, a gum wall, lots of coffee paraphernalia, and a space needle in distress.


The competition was held at Benaroya Hall, normally the venue for the Seattle Symphony Orchestra. It was a packed house and the first round went to sudden death... only I somehow forgot to add the sudden death screen! Who would have thought that competitions could go to sudden death. This has to be an eSports first Luckily that was the only oversight in the build so the rest of the competition took place on other levels.


We've updated the Steam build, so now you too can do battle in PAX Place! We even have our Nidhogg booth in there, so if you couldn't make the con, you can visit it in ~VIRTUAL (2d) REALITY~

We plan to add content like this regularly. Still figuring out a firm schedule, but once a month seems likely! Don't forget to join our official Discord server

v2017090501
- added a new local and online multiplayer level "pax place"

See you on the battlefield!

About This Game

The wurm has returned and it must feed! Shed your garments and paint the walls with the flesh of your enemies, for only one can be worthy of sacrifice.

The rules are simple. Reach the other side and kill anyone that stands in your way. Deftly parry and rend their throats, riddle their bowels with arrows, or squish their brains between your toes. The wurm cares not for chivalry.

Sequel to the indie hit of 2014, Nidhogg 2 builds upon the award-winning gameplay of its predecessor with new weapons to wield and levels to master, head-to-toe character customization, and the captivatingly grotesque art of Toby Dixon.

And, with music from artists including Mux Mool, Geotic, Doseone, Osborne, and Daedelus, Nidhogg 2 has a soundtrack so good that even the menu screens are awesome.

Game Features:

  • Challenge the AI or a friend in 1v1 combat.
  • Fight for the top seat in 8-player tournaments.
  • Master the distinctive traits of four weapons.
  • Get stylish with full character customization.
  • Ten stages from castles to Nidhogg innards.
  • Alter the rules with over 10 different game variables.
  • Go online with matchmaking and private games.
