Valhalla is a surreal story-based mod for Portal 2 in which you experience the dying thoughts of Cave Johnson as he reflects upon his last wish to have Caroline's mind uploaded into a computer.

Post news RSS Valhalla Scope update

A mini-update to inform mod-watchers of Valhalla's approximate scope of maps and development.

Posted by on

Hello fellow gamers in these trying times pensive emoji,

I receive lots of questions about the size of this mod, which I would like to address. As of right now, it appears that in Valhalla, there will be:
A minimum of 23 total maps, with 16 story maps ( including bts / nonstandard puzzles ) and approximately 7 test chambers.

Story Maps started: 12
Story Maps fully completed: 0
Story Maps nearing completion: 2
Test Chambers Built: ~4

This may sound like a very small workload compared to some other mods, or even to the base games of Portal 1 or 2, but each map will be created with purpose and story; as well as involve numerous aspects unique to Valhalla that are not present in the base game or other mods. (eg: new visual styles, human npcs, unconventional gameplay, and a heavy focus on a player-centric story.) These new aspects of the game, along with my desire to deliver the highest quality possible, still make for a long development period.

I am currently NOT looking for playtesters at this time!

To conclude, here are a few new screenshots.

Sounds awesome, it's great that you know your scope and have everything planned out. Stats show that you're making great progress towards your goal, too! Those are some lovely screenshots, very immersive and meticulously detailed -- believable locations in a way which few other Portal mods accomplish. I'm definitely getting the sense that Valhalla is going to be a really unique and memorable experience :) Keep up the fantastic work!

Have to disaggre with "small workload" here. 23 maps is still a lot of maps.
