Nidhogg to be released later this year, possibly through Steam


Previously only available at special events, the glorious fencing game Nidhogg is to see a general release later this year. Its developer, Mark Essen, is filling the game out with new features and hopes to get it onto Steam for wider consumption.

Michael Molinari over at Indie Games got the scoop, scraping details out of Essen with a well-handled journalist’s foil. Apparently, the game is due for release later this year, comes with multiple stages to fight across, a new singleplayer component that see you fighting AI fencers, and, also, online multiplayer for internet based killing.

Essen’s also thinking about adding new weapons, one would be a battle axe “something with momentum.”
