Indie Game Night: Nidhogg 5th Anniversary Celebration & Tournament
Category: Indie Game Night
Every Last Thursday, Indie Game Night invites you to play and preview new and unreleased independently-developed video games in Ground Kontrol’s lounge. These games are made by small teams (often just a few people) and are usually retro-inspired with refined game play that’s easy to pick up in just a couple of rounds.
This month, we’re celebrating 5 years of Nidhogg with a tournament on the original game and casual matches in both Nidhogg and Nidhogg 2! We’ll start the tournament around 9pm, so you’ll have plenty of time to warm up and get used to the simple mechanics of the game if you’re a new player (don’t worry, you’ll pick it up quickly!)
Nidhogg is the award-winning fencing tug-of-war, full of graceful acrobatics and clumsy stabs. This is the ultimate two-player showdown of fast-paced fencing and melee attacks. Beware, advantages in Nidhogg are often fleeting, as new opponents continually spawn in your way. Use a variety of fencing maneuvers while armed — lunges, parries, and even dirty tricks like throwing your sword. If swordless, press forward with punches, sweep kicks, dive kicks, rolls, and wall jumps.
Get down here at 7 and join gamemaster Aspen Farer, who will be on hand to help you get started. There’s no cost to play and no pressure to win, just grab a beer and a controller and have a blast!
