was one of the best games of 2014, a bizarre, fencing tug-of-war where the winner earned the right to be eaten by a giant worm, and now it’s getting a sequel.
Nidhogg 2’s most noticable difference from its predecessor is its new art style. Instead of blocky Atari-like characters and environments, Nidhogg 2 has 10 new detailed levels and goofy character designs that add a bit of levity to the whole “duel to the death and sacrifice yourself to a worm-god” thing. Single player is back, along with online and local multiplayer. The soundtrack will also feature new music from Mux Mool, Dose One, Daedelus and more.
If you’re going to be at TwitchCon this weekend, you can check out the game early in the Indie District at booth 104. The rest of us will be able to get a look at the game on Saturday, Oct. 1 at 5:15 p.m. when its streamed live on Twitch.
Nidhogg 2’s teaser is embedded below and you can see more screenshots and GIFs here. The game is available to wishlist on Steam here.
Nidhogg 2 is coming to PC and “maybe some other platforms” sometime in 2017.
