I remember having an idea for a videogame. You'd be out in the wilderness, building a town, hunting wild animals. I though it would be really cool if you could cut down trees so they knock down other trees. I especially wanted a really detailed system for making buildings.
This was before survival games were common, but I thought it would be so cool.
When Minecraft came out and survival games exploded I thought my day had come. I loved them all, even some particularly buggy projects that never left alpha. I thought my dream game had come.
But I just started valhiem the other day, and boy was I wrong. So many of the details I'd wanted but hadn't seen before are here. The buildings are gorgeous, the mechanics are incredible (if you build a fire in a house without a chimney the smoke collects until you start suffocating and the fire goes out).
I'm not even out of the stone age and I'm already having a blast playing this game.
