Seasons Greetings one and all! How about some Eggnog to wash down that Christmas turkey? Or to be more precise some EGGNOGG+ – a NIDHOGG-inspired competitive arcade game of immortals sword-fighting to the death.
Originally created for TOJam as a re-imagining and parody of NIDHOGG, EGGNOGG+ has now taken on a life of it’s own and become much more than a NIDHOGG Knock-off. It features fast paced local multiplayer swordfighting across maps with multiple screens, hazards and animated beasties such as skeletons and bugs. The aim is to out manuvere and out-duel your opponent, with victors being rewarded by being allowed to move forward one screen towards your goal. Character control is very precise and the gameplay is a blast, much like NIDHOGG, it makes for some highly competitive play.
The pixel art visuals of EGGNOGG+ are wonderful, full of nice little touches and animations, and the procedurally generated bytebeat tunes are excellent. All in all it’s a highly competetive and rather addictive game. What better to do on Xmas day? Isn’t kicking, punching and stabbing your friends and family what Xmas is all about anyway?
