Love/Hate video game planned to bring back Nidge


Fans of Love/Hate are eagerly awaiting to see if Nidge survived being shot at the end of his garden in the last series’ finale, but now one fan is looking to bring him back in a virtual sense at least.

Glen McGarry has launched a crowdfunding project to raise €50,000 towards creating a new video game that begins after Nidge’s shooting – and makes him survive.

“The game begins at the final episode. Nidge is found lying in a pool of blood as Patrick makes his getaway. The sound of sirens blares through the streets as the guards race to the scene. Found lying face down, Nidge and Siobhan are rushed to the nearest hospital,” reads McGarry’s pitch.

“Overcome with rage and a hunger for revenge, Nidge plans out his next steps. His rise to return to the top is only beginning… and as Patrick and Fran race to finish the job off, Nidge isn’t going down again without a fight.”

McGarry said that if he is able to raise the funds, he would get in touch with RTE to sit down with cast members past and present to get them involved.

This is an idea most people I’m sure would love to experience,” he adds, “I think I speak for everyone when I say we miss a lot of characters.”
