Nidhogg Coming to Steam January 13

Posted on January 2, 2014 AT 09:21am

Mark “Messhof” Essen’s side-scrolling fighting game, Nidhogg, is set to launch January 13 for PC via Steam, the developer has announced.

The announcement was made with a new trailer (below) which showcases several different environments that will feature in the game, such as a castle, clouds, the wilds, and mines. For those who are unaware, the objective of Nidhogg is to reach the end of a given stage by running in the direction that you spawn. An opponent will spawn in front of you facing the opposite direct, and you must kill this opposing player continually to advance and reach the end of the stage.

Nidhogg has already won several awards, including the the Grand Prize and Excellence in Design awards at the Independent Games Festival 2011.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
