Valheim players are building some gorgeous Viking homes, so we’re reviewing them

Valheim’s building system is extremely simple. Like most survival games, you’re given a handful of basic building blocks like walls and sloped roofs, and it’s up to you to figure out how to put them together. If you’re like me, that means assembling crappy little cottages that never have enough room for all your chests filled with Greyling eyeballs and other weird knick-knacks you’ve collected. But a lot of Valheim players aren’t so architecturally challenged.

Over the past week, I’ve been frequenting the Valheim subreddit and perusing the Twitter hashtag just to marvel at some of the amazing construction projects players have created. Great halls, mountain fortresses, longhouses—hell, some players have made entire villages that would make Odin beam with pride.
