We chatted with co-founder of Iron Gate Studios, Henrik Törnqvist, about the hit co-op Viking survival game.
"We wanted to have more of a feeling of an old school, singleplayer adventure game, kind of like the older Zeldas, I guess," said Törnqvist. "Where you get new equipment from defeating the bosses. And we thought it would, or we hoped that it would, mesh well with the survival aspects of a game. And, yeah, it seems it worked out."
fun fact: there are now more virtual Vikings playing Valheim than there were actual Vikings at their peak in the 1300s.
