Are you kidding me? Unless you intend to license/sell your language for
money after you develop it, and providing that Valhalla fits your needs,
you'd be crazy to develop your own. The time you would put into it is
worth way more than $900. Heck, if the four of you just went and got jobs
at McDonalds for a week, at $6/hour, you'd have $960 before taxes. A week
and a half of that and you are sorted. And, I'd imagine that if you are
considering writing your own codebase, you have skills that will get you
paid a lot more than some burger-flipping job. 

Buy the license, spend your time developing the game. (Again, provided
Valhalla fits your needs. I know nothing about it.)
