NUMBER 2: Nidhogg – Messhof
From indie developer, Mark ‘Messhof’ Essen, Nidhogg is a 2D side scrolling fighter that looks and plays simple, but is as surprisingly sophisticated as it is utterly bonkers. The premise is simple, use your pixelated character’s fencing skills to best your opponent – then run to the edge of the level and be gleefully eaten (yes, eaten) by the Nidhogg.
Nidhogg was released, to rave reviews and indie accolades, on Steam earlier this year. It scored very favourably across the board, even scoring a 9/10 from the notoriously hard to please, Edge Magazine.
