Prove your worth!

Are you worthy of entering Valhalla? You have been sent to Valheim, the 10th Norse world. Only by defeating the mighty beasts of these lands will you win the favor of the gods. This quest will take you to the far reaches of this world from the deepest forest to the highest mountain peak. You will craft powerful weapons and build unyielding strongholds. You will ride mighty steeds across the open fields and sail longships towards the horizon.


Valheim is a game about exploring a huge fantasy world inspired by norse mythology and viking culture. You start your adventure at the relatively peaceful center of Valheim. The further from the center you travel, the more challenging the world becomes. But you will also find more valuable materials that you can use to craft deadlier weapons and sturdier armor. You will also build your own viking strongholds and outposts all over the world. Eventually you will build a mighty longship and sail the great oceans in search of exotic lands … but be wary of sailing too far...


  • Huge procedurally generated world with different biomes.
  • Block and dodge based combat system with a variety of different weapons and combat styles.

This early alpha version of Valheim is free to download but i gladly accept donations. A nonfree version of the game will hopefully be released on steam later this year. So just to make it clear, donating money is not the same as buying the game.

I don't know if it would be practical but when it is released could you put the full version here on Itch as well as on steam? I really don't like steam. 

Great Game! very fun and i like it

Also cant wait for Female player model 

I played this like a year ago and im still happy that its still being updated 

I LOVE these graphics! Excellent!

make it for macos

Great game! Definitley excited for the new updates. Graphics look great on ultra, and still look okay on low graphics. Awesome survival game if you have a slow computer! :D

I hope you will add crouch in the future.

Good game but ( I know its an alpha test) after I spent at least an accumulated 14 hours getting all of the best stuff, I  just tried putting down a portal and it literally kills me, sends me to my original spawn instead of bed. I get back to the base and everything I ever had is gone. no house no walls nothing. Just hope this is fixed in future release.

Really awesome game!  The graphics are pretty nice on ultra.  Can't wait until it comes out on Steam...hopefully the game will get bigger!!

be more realistic of o controlled a group of viking no viking ever ran around on his own

Game freezes immediately after start. I see the unity logo and then nothing but the background…running Zorin OS 15.1 AMD Radeon RX 580

Looks very nice. Would appreciate a release on GOG. Payment options here are too limited for me…

Um can anyone plz tell me if the discord is a thing anymore because I cant even seem to join it for some reason?

Can you not set the game to 1080p?

Nvm I got i

can you please add a option to increase the size of the settings, health and stuff like that

this is awesome


Happy holidays Dvoid :]

We have/had a holiday server "Vinland" open in Alpha . Building fans still going strong :D

p.s. add a diagonal beam for building, basically roof wall without the wall part ;] and maybe some expensive method to make prevent rotting for wood objects without roof? ;D I know i'm greedy... :D


well now i can go sleep.
here is the super punch


hi there, i just want to let you know that .
i have infinite life , and well you should put some safety here i guess our would be really easy to hack in :P

Surprisingy fun game! It also has it's own beauty even due to the limited graphic style. It's kinda hard to not die right at the beginning, a little save zone around the spawn would be nice :)

I think it has a lot of potential though, I'll keep following the progress ^^

is there a way to get monsters to stop spawning? Also will there be a leveling System because I keep dying.

are you gonna ask money for this game if it comes off of alpha


1. will this game be updated? and 2. please make copper easier to find, i spent 2 weeks looking for it );

Can we get access to a more recent build by paying?

Gave error when opening, could not play the game :(

Absolutely wonderful game! I am so impressed with this, I have been playing for the past 3 hours. Took a break just to write this. Awesome work! How many people are working on this, btw?

=) thanks

you can only place buildings one way theres is no way to rotate a wall or buildin

you use scroll wheel

Pretty fun. A controls list in options or something would help quite a bit. for early development I would say the game is very promising. Not near ready for a release though.

really good game, but can you add fish and fishing rods please ?

and finding ores is hard and i LIKE IT    <3   <3   <3   <3   

and please add longer vertical pillars for building <3

please release another update soon :D best game ever!!


Im loving the game so far. Cant wait to try the steam release!

can you start up like a clan and stuff

From all the time i have built housing in the game, there is no point going past one level.

when i build a 8x8 floor setup the roof is near impossible to build. Even with supports up the Yin Yang! 

To see if it was just my 8x8 setup i made a 6X6 & 4X4 & 2X2 floor setup. Each wall was 2 wall high walls and then wood floor on top then 2 more 2 wall high walls and the Roof does not stand & just collapses?

I assume the Program you use to develop the world is Hindering the Height of the Buildings. Do you design the game inside of a digital box that limits the height?

I am not an Educated Game designer but i have some rather awesome ideas and possibly could land me into going to Nait for Game design which is one of my dreams, to work with the gaming industry.

I recommend if you are not Hindered by height restrictions? that you allow us to build 2 even 3 level buildings. You gave us all these Awesome tools, shapes and designs to use yet the roof that is the MOST IMPORTANT is near impossible to build?

Now i need to look at this another way, is this Due to Alpha version and none of these issue above are in the new version being built for Steam?

You can build higher floors in game with enough support beams but of course, the game has building height limit. Join discord if you have more questions regarding in game stuff. 


From my experience I would be suited as a game moderator when you go live on steam.



#1 Find a body of water or shore line Cabin and use as base.(I found to have less enemy's)

#2 focus on picking up wood and make a Work bench and bed. (Make sure you click the bed to make a spawn point when you die) 

#3 Find 3 wood and 6 Flint (found on shore lines). And make a flint Axe on the workbench.

#4 Find 10 stone and 3 wood and make Stone pick axe.

#5 Again roam the shore lines & find 52 Flint and cut down trees to get 60 wood and make 4 Flinthead spears & 20 Flinthead arrows. (use Spears to kill enemy's at first as you can pick the spears back up & it keeps the monsters distance from you since you have no good armour yet)

#6 Hunt down 20 deer useing only the spear & collect the Leather & Meat & make a set of deerskin Armour and a Bow. 

(Caution using Spears! You need to aim UP HIGHER above the targets!!!! Like a Deer, you have to kill from afar or they run away.)

Do not focus on ANY close combat at first  if you can avoid it? & ONLY use (Spears) UNTIL you have 6 Copper bar, 4 Coal, 4 Stone & 10 Wood were you can now build a (Forge) to make a Copper sword and a Copper Hat. 

If you fond  copper or Iron Ore? not already in bars? You need to find 40 stone & 4 Surtling Core and make a Smelter and a Charcoal Kiln and smelt the ore to make Copper or Iron bars

From here you can go to any Bog or Mountain top (Troll armour required & at least 20 health potions that you can make on the work bench to go to the mountain tops)

Welcome to Valheim. You are in for a treat as this is a one of a kind game.

You have to pay for the game once it releases on steam


Well, this game is definitly alive for anyone who was wondering. There is a Steam page open for it and the dev is quite active on twitter (thanks!)! So, I went ahead and played a little of the game and here is what I found while in the game...

Also, a link to the Steam page for anyone interested.
