"Nidhogg is best described as a game where you fight for the right to be eaten by a giant, hideous worm-like monster. Why anyone would risk their lives for such a fate befuddles me. But the process of getting there is so damn tense and exciting that the conclusion hardly matters. It’s the thrill of battle, crossing swords in a seemingly never ending struggle, outwitting your opponent through whatever means necessary that’s important. And it’s glorious."
