Project Valkyrie is a multiplayer first person shooter developed for the Source Engine. Players suit up in the Valkyrie suit, equipped with a powerful arm cannon integrated into the suit and the ability to morph into a sphere for faster mobility and different attack capabilities. Previously titled Three Month Mod, it was thus named for the amount of time it had taken us on the project. Three months from conception to release. Everything was done simultaneously, from pre-production concepts, to code, to mapping. Unfortunately, due to a delay with the public release of the Orange Box SDK (we couldn't release without it, even though we were already Orange Box!) our initial release had been delayed.
After an incredible first release, we'd like to thank everyone and announce a contest!

Project Valkyrie's First Release
We'd like to say thank you to everyone who downloaded our first release of Project Valkyrie, with over 3000 downloads on Fileplanet alone!
We've gotten some great feedback on the forums and are working on tuning the game and fixing issues for RC2, which will include many fixes and enhancements, including Team Deathmatch.
For those worried about the lack of diversity in the mod, we're planning a 1.5 Month Content Patch, including new weapons, maps, player models and tweaks. As always, we'll be keeping the community up-to-date on our progress.
Project Valkyrie Mapping Contest
We'd also like to announce our first Mapping Contest for Project Valkyrie. Within a couple of hours of release, we saw custom maps on servers, so we know some of you out there in the community are itching to produce custom content.
The rules, signups, and other information are all available on our forums.
We should have a full prize list within the next couple of days, as well.
