Valheim developer Iron Gate AB announced that they were inspired by the game Zelda: Breath of the Wild during the game’s development process.
Valheim One of the important aspects that should actually be discussed is the visual design. This is a matter of curiosity for the players in the game, which is far from what is expected for a game in 2021 or what technology brings, with its unique structure and graphics. It is obvious that it is a production that looks older than we are used to, with its graphics similar to the games on the first PlayStation console.
Inspired by Zelda and PS1 games during the development of Valheim
PCGamesNValheim’s developer reached out to Iron Gate CEO Richard Svensson to talk about it. They asked why the team developed the aesthetics of Valheim in this way, and what impact it had on Viking-themed survival games.
Svensson: “PlayStation graphics are coming back! This is a visual style that we really like in Iron Gate, but apart from that it also makes it easier for people who do not have the latest hardware to play. The rate of return on asset creation for the game is really much faster, however. The world’s low-detail styles are highly beautified with lots of ambient effects and post processing. “
Svennson also points out that the developer team was inspired by single-player adventure games. While multiplayer survival games remain popular, it is being asked if they made a special effort to stand out from PvP focused survival games like Rust. Svennson replies to this question, “Yes, we wanted to do a PvE game from the beginning.” “Zelda: Breath of the Wild and we’re inspired by this type of single player adventure game. “
It also touches on another issue that has been discussed among the players recently; Portals. Portals allow you to quickly switch from one region to another in the game. However, this transition does not include the “Ore” ores you carry with you. Intense demands from the players are that the ores can also pass through these portals. Svennson says they “listen to community feedback” on this issue.
