There’s probably an “early bird gets the wurm” joke in there somewhere

It’s time to run for you life once again, because indie developer Messhof has officially released Nidhog 2.

Nidhogg 2 tasks players with a simple goal; to reach the end of the level. To do this, players will need to run, jump, and brutally maim anyone who stands in their way — lest you become the Nidhogg’s next meal. Nidhogg 2 builds upon the original Nidhogg formula, adding in new weapons to use and levels to master, and full character customization. The squiggling sequel also features art by Toby Dixon, and music by Mux Mool, Geotic, Doseone, Osborne, and Daedelus. For even more information, check out the list of key features below:

  • Challenge the AI or a friend in 1v1 combat
  • Fight for the top seat in 8-player tournaments
  • Master the distinctive traits of four weapons
  • Get stylish with full character customization
  • Ten stages from castles to Nidhogg innards
  • Alter the rules with over 10 different game variables
  • Go online with matchmaking and private games


Nidhogg 2 is now officially available for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam. Are you ready to outrun the wurm once again? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
