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.
Project Valkyrie (originally known as Three Month Mod) started as a team-building exercise wherein we quickly ground out a deliverable within a three month time frame. From there we would move along to more complex and original projects. Somewhere along the way though, we became very attached to our little mod, and diverted all of our efforts from our large-scale, big concept project to complete Three Month Mod not only with quantity, but also quality.
Our team started small, ballooned towards the middle of development, and now, as we approach release, we have sloughed off the excess to hone our team down to a dedicated group of talented individuals filling each of the roles necessary to produce the mod.
Whereas originally we planned on releasing Three Month Mod and moving on to other projects, we now plan on supporting it continually with new content and updates in the future, depending on community reaction to our first release.
If you want to see more from the mod, the best way is to get active in our forums and let us know. Suggestions, ideas, we'll take it all into consideration.

-EDIT- January 05 2009, The server is down now. I'm in Korea and not ready to get another server. I just thought I'd tack this into this news post, not ready to make another one yet ;) -Tony
I bought a dedicated server tonight for PV 1.2
You can find it at 188.8.131.52:27015 or in the server browser _INSIDE_ the game, I repeat, Inside the game. This server is hosted by gameservers.com and is located in New York USA.
The server browser isn't distinguishing between Ep1 and Ep2 on the dedicated server, and it thinks it's running the ep1 engine, and it makes servers not show up outside of the game, consequently you also cannot join them even if you add them as favorites unless you load up Project Valkyrie first!
A few of us just had a great game on the new server, and I expect to keep it up-to date all the time!
Hope you get some games going on it!
