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 nine months, Blackened Interactive is here to bring you an alpha release (The first release was a beta, this one is an alpha, in other words, it's not 'complete' like the first release was) of Project Valkyrie. Many months have passed, but Valkyrie hasn't gotten our full attention, with other projects on the go and Valkyrie's first release as successful as it was, we haven't put nearly as much time into it as we did in the beginning. With that said, we're please to give you a peak..

After nine months, Blackened Interactive is here to bring you an alpha release (The first release was a beta, this one is an alpha, in other words, it's not 'complete' like the first release was) of Project Valkyrie.

Many months have passed, but Valkyrie hasn't gotten our full attention, with other projects on the go and Valkyrie's first release as successful as it was, we haven't put nearly as much time into it as we did in the beginning. With that said, we're please to give you a peak into what we have planned in store for the future!

I now present you an ALPHA of RC2 - Why release an alpha? Simply put, it's been nine months. Things didn't go as planned initially, certain key members of Blackened found themselves in new jobs and haven't been around. This release is purely the culmination of mine, Mike "CornetTheory" Hillard, and Stefan "Winston" Bermig's work. (Plus of course all previous work before-hand!)

First up is the windows full install - Project Valkyrie now runs off of 'Source SDK Base 2007' instead of Team Fortress 2, so now you do not need to own TF2 to play it. Within the next week or so (if time permits) I shall get a dedicated server for windows, and MAYBE a linux dedicated server functioning as well. For now, this shall do! The installer is located under our file page here on ModDB, and once I make a post on www.project-valkyrie.com mirrors will be available.

A brief list of the changes in this release as are follows:
- 4 new weapons - 2 of which are charge combos
- lots of values tweaked
- team modes are in, but only team deathmatch is featured on our maps
- a new map which is still in the works: 3mm_solar, by Mike is included purely in Alpha state. It is by no means complete, we have a lot of prop work to do on it, as well as details, and fine tuning, so please don't hold it up as a finished product, as it is not!
- new reserve energy tank - this may in the future become a pickup instead of always there
- delay between both boosting in ball form, and charge shots has been reduced

As always, report any bugs you find, unlike the first release, this may contain a lot more!!

Mappers: There is a lot to explain on the new entity and team mode systems, CTF does work, we just don't have models and whatnot created for it. We will need to make a new guide, but for now, po st in the forums and I'll help you!

Thanks for all your support, and hopefully I'll see some of you around!

Bah. Forgot to update the menu for the binds so that you can actually USE the new weapons.
1 2 and 3 should be bound to slot1/slot2/slot3 respectively.

looks awesome. much better than the updates i saw many months ago. vry good, gameplay seems good, although, it seems like the weapons are lacking, but its just out, makes sense. the tunnels n stuff are an awesome addition to DM. cant wait for it to get popular.

edit: it seems that apparently, theres more than one weapon, but theyre unusable. unfortunate.

They're not unusable, you just need to bind keys to switch.

Due to an oversight.. it happens with only 3 people working on something over the course of nine months.. the binds weren't added to the menu.

if you pull down the console and type the following 3 lines:
bind 1 slot1
bind 2 slot2
bind 3 slot3

you can now use 1-3 to switch weapons as usual.

I'll be testing the new version out here this weekend. However I have no doubt it will exceed my expectations.
