Stick ‘im with the pointy end: Nidhogg released

Nidhogg released

Long-awaited pixelated fencer Nidhogg was finally released on Steam today, in all its sexy, beautifully animated glory. It’s on sale with 20 percent off until January 20th, so if you’ve been waiting for what seems like forever to pick it up – and it really does feel like it’s been forever – then you should probably grab it now. 

Nidhogg is a game of acrobatics and intense duels, with wee fencers trying to stick each other with the pointy end. Victory doesn’t just mean stabbing your opponent, however, it just means you can push forward, gaining ground until you can reach your end zone.

It’s like the Errol Flynn of sports.
