thoughts on nidhogg?
I liked it but there's not much to talk about it. Wasn't there a sequel or something in the works? What happened to that?
it came out and was an assault on the eyes
they deliberately made it as ugly as possible thinking they'd score 'le quirky indie devs' buzz but instead nobody talked about it and it killed the game
i dont think
really cool game. the sequel was a massive fail because for some reason someone thought that a game with incredibly simple mechanics needs something more than incredibly simple art. the music is kino too.
kinda sad that this game didn't really blow up and probably never will because it's like 10 bucks on steam for what's essentially a browser game.
People only talk about Nidhogg to mention the sequel having an artstyle change that was so fucking bad it fucking repelled everyone from playing it and directly caused the game to flop.
>dev claims this is the style he wanted for the original game
actual mental case
im still mad about the artstyle change ngl
this is yet more evidence that in order to make a masterpiece you have to be a mentally ill lunatic
the dev got his gf to do the art, I'm pretty sure
I know it'll sound like bullshit but it genuinely had something to do with tumblr either way, remember reading about it and wondering what compelled someone to be so fucking dense
Sometimes a game just fails because of the new change in art direction. Haydee 2 abandoning the dump truck ass robot for unity stock woman is a big L.
haydee was never worth anything
True. The only thing it was worth was the sex bot. Removing that for the sequel has made it completely worthless.
i pirated haydee 2 BECAUSE of her weird face and fat tits.
This shit never fails to disgust me. They had an artstyle that was elegant in its simplicity, that somehow allowed characters to be surprisingly expressive despite their literal lack of features, and made it much easier to read on a gameplay level because of it, which is really what the game needed.
Then for the sequel we got these fucking Cronenberg-Simpsons monstrosities, that just fundementally make the game worse, both from a aesthetic standpoint and a gameplay standpoint by making it harder to understand what they splotchy blobs are even doing.
Thought it looked neat. Still need to get it
it was cool but the sequel was so fucking retarded that the devs dont deserve any credit and I hate the original
I keep wanting to read the name as nignog
nidhogg and nidhogg 2 should be taught to every aspiring game dev of what not to do.
less is more.
i keep rewatching this video annually
where can I pirate it on pc? I'm not playing 2.
Didn't expect them to suddenly add a new stage a year ago. Shame it's the second worst after Mines.
Sincerely a fun party game
Shame about the sequel that basically erased itself and nidhogg itself from the cultural eye. It is honestly impressive how bad they fucked up with that one.
I always try to read it as nignogg
The first one was fucking perfect. It was Prince of Persia versus mode. Simple moves, gritty deaths, tight gameplay. Perfect for couch tournaments.
The second one... Well new weapons were ok, but nothing special. But everything was too much just for the sake of it. It is a worse game...
