Youtuber NickRawcliffe likes the Valheim challenge-he is the first person in the world to knock down all the bosses in reverse order and kill all 5 bosses in 90 minutes. So he decided to really challenge himself and try to use the vegetarian rules to beat the game.
“So there is no animal food, and no items such as leather used or made or used. So basically there are no weapons, no ship portals, etc.,” Rawcliffe wrote. In Wallheim’s terminology, this is as big as the challenge: the survival mechanism of the game is basically built around endless slaughter of animals. I’m not sure what the equivalent is in other games, but this is extreme survival.
Unsurprisingly, Rawcliffe has encountered endless obstacles-the video above is quite rich, but it is also a super clip of many hours of challenge live (if you are a vegetarian, all of these are archived). “This almost beat me,” Rockcliffe wrote. “We spent 15 days of play time, days of planning time, and nearly 3 weeks of screening all the shots.” However, all in all, Rawcliffe slammed his head on this rock enough times that the rock broke. He became the king of vegetarian Vikings.
What is impressive is that Robin Eyre of Iron Gate Studios suddenly said in a comment, “This is a very interesting and eye-opening challenge, very useful! Good job!”
Valheim is one of the breakthrough hotspots in 2021, and it is very successful, guaranteeing support for the next few years. The developers have already announced the new biome that will be launched in 2022, and it may also get a new difficulty mode. However, as the vegetarian challenge shows, you can always make yourself difficult.
