The game is now called Valhalla, and Build 53 constitutes a rewrite from scratch---VERY apparent as per the latest screenshots for the version.   8)

Why are some devs so uninventive and not checking things when it comes to names? There was already a roguelike named Valhalla, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ragnarok_%28video_game%29

Yes, I was excited when I saw this topic because I thought someone was actually updating Valhalla. But no. Different Valhalla.

This is why generic titles are a bad idea. It's not that hard to choose a title that's unlikely to be shared by another game, or at least another roguelike!
