The visually fancier sequel Nidhogg 2 will be releasing on PlayStation 4 and PC by mid-August with swords, arrows and body parts flying all over the place.
The game's art direction for the sequel has taken a rather different turn from the original and part of the reason is to help the team handle all those fleshy body parts so they needn't have to redraw entire character sprites.
"The wurm has returned and it must feed! Shed your garments and paint the walls with the flesh of your enemies, for only one can be worthy of sacrifice. The rules are simple. Reach the other side and kill anyone that stands in your way. Deftly parry and rend their throats, riddle their bowels with arrows, or squish their brains between your toes. The wurm cares not for chivalry."
