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.

Excellent solid base, I hope to see this mod developed further. Ball mode is awseome and the tubes and canyon jumps are a blast to go through.

Just so you know, we didn't 'sell out'. Nobody on our team made money out of Fileplanet. The aim was simply to reach the maximum number of people. Like it or not a front page add on Fileplanet can do that better than pretty much anything else short of Steam News.

We want people to play the mod so that it's more fun for everyone :)

If you really hate Fileplanet THAT much you can wait a few more hours and there will be other places to download it. I guess what I'm saying is...

Chill out and enjoy, no need for all this stress :D

So... Had to wait in line for 10 mins, but now that it's downloading it's actually quite fast (> 700 Kb/s), so no need to complain I guess... ;)

I'm wondering, though: I don't own the Orange Box, but I do have HL2 and Episode 1, so don't feel like buying the OB either. I may be interested in buying Ep. 2, or perhaps Portal, or TF 2, seperately - would any of those be enough for me to play this game? Or, do I need any of them at all?

If anything you might need TF2, but I only see the TF2 requirement in the Server download description so the client might just need any Source game in which case it'll run.

Right now it *does* require TF2. We're actually running on TF2's AppID, because we wanted to release on time. As soon as Valve releases the patch, anyone who can run mods will be able to run PV.
