"Stabbing your friends is rarely this much fun. A 1v1 fencing tug-of-war. Lacking in content, but brilliant mechanics and a riotous competitive feel."

Multiplayer Update Now Live

ːnidhoggyengardeː Hey Everyone ːnidhoggoengardeː

We are super excited to unleash a big update for Nidhogg's online multiplayer functionality!!

We have been working with another programmer, Vadim Dyachenko (@yellowafterlife), to improve the latency and desync issues in the online multiplayer mode of Nidhogg.

Rather than having a set frame delay on the inputs, the new system sets the delay based on your connection. Remember that a connection is only as fast as the slowest player!

Matchmaking has also been sped up a bit and various graphical bugs that could crash the game have been fixed.

The current build ID for the update for mac+pc is 710182. If you want to confirm that you have the update, check preferences > local files and make sure you have a number the same or bigger than that.

We really appreciate your patience during this process, and hope to see you on a more equal online playing field.

“A brilliant marriage of mechanics, level design and music that will be played and talked about for years to come.”
93/100 – PC Gamer

“It’s the most exhilarating competitive game I’ve played in years.”
9/10 – IGN

“Nidhogg is about the purity of two friends on a couch duking it out as Daedelus’s moody dynamic electronica frames acrobatic displays of wits and reflexes. In that sense, it has no equal.”
9/10 – Edge

Über dieses Spiel

Nidhogg is the epic award-winning fencing tug-of-war, full of graceful acrobatics and clumsy stabs. IRL yelling and excitement may occur, in this ultimate two-player showdown of fast-paced fencing and melee attacks.

Beware, advantages in Nidhogg are often fleeting, as new opponents continually spawn in your way. Use a variety of fencing maneuvers while armed -- lunges, parries, and even dirty tricks like throwing your sword. If swordless, press forward with punches, sweep kicks, dive kicks, rolls, and wall jumps.

The combat arena stretches in both directions, although besting an opponent only gains you ground. Matches aren’t won or lost with a single kill, but with a series of kills granting you right-of-way to run/fight/flee to your own goal-zone.

Each arena holds different strategic formations and chokepoints to use to your advantage. Until you reach your goal-zone, anything is possible. Only one thing is certain in Nidhogg… the only way to win is to outwit your opponent. En Garde!

Nidhogg provides some of the fastest and most enjoyable monochromatic bloodletting one could hope to experience. The premise is simple. You are a pixelated swordsman in a territorial conflict with your opponent, most often your best friend sitting right beside you. Each standoff is lightning fast, and invariably ends in a gratuitous splattering of blood. Kill your opponent with a well-timed and well-placed lunge, hurl your épée at his head, or just knock him down and rip his heart out. Savagery is encouraged, and provides a hilarious counterpoint to the civilized image of fencing. Once you have managed to kill your opponent, you can progress to your goal until just seconds later, he respawns and you must again defeat him to progress. Lose, and he gains ground on you. This ebb and flow continues until one of you reaches the final screen where the winner is given a true hero’s sendup: He is eaten by a flying worm.

Nidhogg is not just a circus of inanity and violence, but is some of the best fun you can have with your friends. Controls are responsive, animations are fast and smooth, and landing consecutive killing blows provides a jolt of dopamine that keeps you coming back for more. There are multiple arenas to choose from, each one visually unique and designed to make you rethink your strategy. Some corridors are too tight for jumping or sword throwing, so both your opponent and the landscape will make you think on your toes.

Visually, Nidhogg exhibits a unique combination of minimalism through pixilation and solid colors. It highlights the expression of characters through animation rather than textures. It is aesthetically arresting and securely has its own style. These visuals are elevated even further when coupled with an exceptional soundtrack by Daedelus.

Nidhogg could have provided only the core one-on-one experience, but if you look deeper there are a lot of extras. There is a tournament mode supporting up to 8 players. There is a multitude of variants in gameplay to explore. There is a single player experience pitting you against an increasingly difficult array of AI personalities. Additionally, there is an online multiplayer component, but at the time of this review, I experienced some unfortunate glitches. In several matches I experienced moments where I killed my opponent, but immediately the game changed states, and my character unexplainably died. It wasn’t often, but it was often enough to sour the experience. I’m told that the online component is still a work in progress, so if you don’t have a friend handy to play local multiplayer check the forums for progress.

Nidhogg was first shown in 2010, and since then Messhoff, comprised of Mark Essen and Kristy Norindr, have worked to shine the core game into a full-fledged release. Nidhogg is available today on Steam for 12.99€, and if you have friends, it is well worth yourmoney.

Ich wollte dieses Spiel schon früher, doch der Preis schien mir zu hoch für den Inhalt. Da ich das Game nun im Sale sah, habe ich aber zugeschlagen. Es macht wirklich Spaß, vor allem zu 2 wenn ihr es online mit einem Freund spielt. Ich finde dieses Konzept echt gut und ziemlich genial, dennoch hat sich meine alte Vermutung bestätigt. Denn es gibt leider nur 4 Map`s, die man nach einiger Zeit schon auswendig kennt und den "Spaßfaktor" langsam auflösen. Ich weis nicht ob an dem Spiel noch gearbeitet wird, aber ich würde es mir auf jeden Fall wünschen, wenn noch ein Haufen "Karten" und evt. neue Modi dazu kommen.Vielleicht sogar ein "Arena" Modus wo man sich einfach nur kloppen kann um Kills zu sammeln=Deathmatch. Ich empfehle euch das Spiel, aber bis zum jetzigen Stand nur zum "Sale" Preis.
