Valhalla Hills is a building strategy game in the tradition of The Settlers or “Cultures”. The player has to lead his outcast Viking heroes to the top of a mountain, where a magical portal is leading to Valhalla. But to do so the Vikings need to do one thing first: Survive! 

The player faces challenges and dangers in the inhospitable mountain region and find a way to the peak. Since the Vikings wouldn’t survive long in this territory the player has to take good care of them, protect them, clothe them and feed them as well as help them to fend off ghostly residents and wild beasts. The Vikings with a mind of their own and a thirst for mead tend to have a relaxed view on things, making it harder for the player to achieve his goal. And then the next threat is nearing over the high seas.

Valhalla Hills features an indirect control. You do not control single characters but give general commands. These should be well-thought, the protagonists have their own mind and their own needs they want to follow. Even if that means work is left undone. 

Constantly newly generated maps, varying mountain terrains, day and night cycles and a well-balanced economy-system ensure endless challenges and variety.

Technically Valhalla Hills is powered by the Unreal 4 Engine making its optical performance gleam. The mastermind and lead developer of “Valhalla Hills” is no lesser than Thomas Häuser, who was head of „The Settlers 2“ 20 years ago, which is the number one classical build-up game. Thomas also was one of creatives and main programmer of the popular “Cultures”-series.
