Valheim has gained in popularity since entering early access on February 2 on Steam, but not necessarily for traditional reasons. Many players are spending most of their time building and decorating their Viking long houses. PC Gamer and The Gamer have documented their experiences, as well as the trials and tribulations, with trying to build their idyllic homestead.

In its short time, Valheim has garnered overwhelmingly positive reviews on Steam from over 27,000 players. Over one million copies of the game have already been sold. Many home building guides have also been put up on YouTube. The game rewards both building and improving bases and homes. It seems that Valheim has managed to find a niche somewhere between The Elder Scrolls and Minecraft.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
