Nidhogg is a rather popular little action gaming about what look like stick figures doing some fencing.
From their Steam post:
QuoteWe've been working on a Linux port for 64 bit systems. It does not currently work-- there is an issue with control inputs as well as menus, so best to hold off on trying it until further notice-- thanks!
About the game
Nidhogg is the epic award-winning fencing tug-of-war, full of graceful acrobatics and clumsy stabs. IRL yelling and excitement may occur, in this ultimate two-player showdown of fast-paced fencing and melee attacks.
Beware, advantages in Nidhogg are often fleeting, as new opponents continually spawn in your way. Use a variety of fencing maneuvers while armed -- lunges, parries, and even dirty tricks like throwing your sword. If swordless, press forward with punches, sweep kicks, dive kicks, rolls, and wall jumps.
