Excellent news! Chaotic multiplayer brawler Nidhogg 2 simply acquired a free replace including new costumes and two new ranges, together with one set upon a practice. Even higher information: the unique Nidhogg additionally acquired a free replace, including a brand new battleground and a few new animated cats.
The 2 new ranges for Nidhogg 2, as explained in a brief Steam post, are “Practice” and “Workplace”. The previous is a “demonic meat locomotive,” whereas the latter is supposedly primarily based on “the true Messhof workplace.” I query this.
I am sufficiently old to seek out the practice stage paying homage to Cowboyana, Messhof’s previous, free western. As a result of it had one minigame that took place on the roof of a train, see. I did not say it was a deep connection.
I am additionally inclined to agree with Adam in his Nidhogg 2 review, who felt that the sequel’s new weapons and bigger scope solely distracted “from the perfection of the central fencing mechanic.”
And Nidhogg 1 is perfection. It is a sword-duelling recreation that produces exceptionally tense standoffs and intense rivalries, with solely a handful of strikes or techniques to get between you and uncooked competitors. I’ve performed it for hours and hours and hours with buddies and I by no means grew bored with it. Its new updates are somewhat smaller than these granted its sequel, understandably, however I am nonetheless glad to have a brand new battleground referred to as “Fields”, a brand new “Everlasting Blood” mode, and people cats.
