Twilight Valkyrie

This is probably the most ambitious project I have ever taken on single-handedly. I have no clue how much time I put into this, but I will tell you, it will equate to an unGodly number of weeks if calculated. Okay, maybe not that bad.

Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it. Erm. Actually. I hope you guys enjoy it substantially more than I did making it.


Big ups to "Ride of the Valkyries" by Richard Wagner! Thank you long-dead music man whose copyrights have probably expired post mortem! Oh, and opening track from Los Angeles Philaharmonic, as sampled from Yes' "Magnification" album.

I did the voice acting in the intro. My microphone sucks. But so do the guys in the intro. So justice is served.

Pretty good game, I completed it on the first try, but it took all my lives. Last boss was just about the right difficulty.

Well done!

the game is visual porn but gets way too difficult during the boss fight.

I was pretty pulled into this at first. I will say that I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. I seemed to run out of ammo. I don't know, that's just something I don't want in a video game. I admit that the graphics are fairly well done.

I just could not destroy those green spaceships. I'm thinking they might be invincible. I really like the background with the blimps and all the firing going on. It doesn't affect the game much, but it sure is nice to look at. All the details are important.

Not my cup of tea but...

Graphics are not too bad. Opening video is entertaining and fairly well done. You're voice over at the beginning is not bad. Overall it was pretty easy to play even for a no "skillz" person like me. Love your choice of "Ride of the Valkyries" for the soundtrack. I didn't play much as I really am no good at shooting/flying games but it did keep me entertained. A well done effort from you.

As for the name "Twilight Valkyrie" (in light of "Valkyriesride's" comment) it's quite appropriate.

Valkyries are from Norse mythology. They were flying female warrior angels of death who snatched fallen men from the battlefield and took them to Valhalla. So the word valkyrie has always had a connection to "flying warriors." Doofus.

The U.S. Air Force worked on the XB-70 (experimental bomber)Valkyrie in the late '50's through the mid-'60's. It never came to fruition but the one surviving prototype is on display at Wright-Patterson.

There have been several USAF/ROTC squadrons with valkyrie in their name. The Turkish Air Force had a Valkyrie squadron at one point.

Perhaps valkyriesride misunderstood "ship" and took it to mean a ship on the water. Although, how he came to conclusion I'm not sure. It's quite apparent in the game that you're piloting an air ship.


do you know what a valkryie is and if u do then why did u call it "TWILIGHT VALKRYIE" it has nothin gto do with a ship killing people, but it was a pretty good game.
