Valnir Rok is an online sandbox survival roleplaying game inspired by Norse mythology. Players will awaken to find themselves on Valnir Island and must do whatever it takes to survive in a land of wild animals, mythical beasts, and violent men. As a hardened Viking warrior, butcher your enemies in bloody combat, build and improve village structures, and form a clan to expand your power and reputation. Battle against opposing clans, place bounties on hated enemies, and discover ruin artifacts to gain favor with the gods with great deeds and holy sacrifices. Might makes right in the Viking world of Valnir Rok.


It had always been a dream of the Valentin, Erik and Sebastian to develop a game. The brothers Sebastian Rahmel and Valentin Rahmel (Sarazar) started with a first concept of the game. Erik Range (Gronkh) joined immediately. Inspired by the Viking tv series, Game of Thrones and Survival titles like DayZ and Rust they created a first concept of a game with survival and roleplay elements. We put together a team of university students to devlop the game, who all finished their studies by now. Gavin Barnes, who had been working at Piranha Bytes (Gothic, Risen), joined the team as lead developer. He had been working at encurio a few years earlier. In January 2017 Sebastian started looking for a story writer. The aim was to create an epic story and have the best quests possible for the given budget. This is when Giles Kristian, the bestselling novelist, joined the team and started to write a storyline and quests. Film director Phil Stevens supported Giles. Also Nitrado is supporting Valnir Rok.
