3 days after the Valheim was released as early access on Steam. I had read this article from PCGamer.com:
Because of my interest in Conan Exiles and the survival genre I naturally gravitated to this mysterious game. I thought why not give it a try. As a friend mentioned “if you don’t like it just return it”. I thought to myself I may not like this game it seems so low definition. Once I started it however… with the proper resolution and full-screen mode setup I noticed that the game is incredibly beautiful. The world feels alive! So much work went into the small details of the game that kept me surprised. Such as when I went to cut down a tree and then it fell on me and I died! I’ve never had any risks of injury from any previous survival games. Or after having built a little home with a camp fire in it, the smoke from the fire would just curl against structures. I also quickly learned that you must build a chimney in order to prevent death. Another welcome surprise.
This game sold 3 million copies in less than three weeks. Incredible and i’m not surprised. After playing the game for yourself you’ll see why it is easy to get hooked.
I just read this latest article on eurogamer.net and was surprised to see it in the top charts for concurrent players on Steam beating some big games including Rust!
