Nidhogg is the epic award-winning fencing tug-of-war, full of graceful acrobatics and clumsy stabs. IRL yelling and excitement may occur, in this ultimate two-player showdown of fast-paced fencing and melee attacks. Beware, advantages in Nidhogg are often fleeting, as new opponents continually spawn.




“A brilliant marriage of mechanics, level design and music that will be played and talked about for years to come.” – PC Gamer
“It’s the most exhilarating competitive game I’ve played in years.” – IGN
“Nidhogg is about the purity of two friends on a couch duking it out as Daedelus’s moody dynamic electronica frames acrobatic displays of wits and reflexes. In that sense, it has no equal.” – Edge
