Flywrench is the next puzzle game from Nidhogg creator

Now that Nidhogg is sheathing its sword, Messhof is moving on to a new puzzle game called Flywrench.


Now that Nidhogg appears to be fully polished across all platforms, what's next for creator Messhof? The answer to that appears to be to soar through the skies with a new abstract flight game called Flywrench.

Originally starting off as a Kickstarter project, Flywrench will put players in control of a strange spaceship that can flap like a bird. The object is to pass through colored lines safely by changing colors on the fly, while looking to finish puzzles in the fastest time possible. Beyond the game's 150 puzzles, players will be able to put together and share their own conundrums online. The game will be set to an electronic music soundtrack pieced together by acclaimed artist Daedelus.

Messhof has been working on Flywrench since 2007, but it won't take much longer to jump into the game. The solo developer announced on Twitter yesterday that the game is set for an August release on Steam.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
