Made for a school project, I dedicate this to Valve (And everyone previously involved in the L4D project). Up until the announcement of L4D2, they have always proven themselves to look out for their players, which is why I have no problem dishing out 50+ dollars to play their games... But Valve, please, the expectations of L4D1's DLCs have not yet been met.. if you release L4D2 with L4D1 in it's current state... Prepare for unforeseen consequences.

Enjoy this short little clip!


Getting too many comments about Louis' apparent color. Lemme explain...

Each Character in L4D has a contrasting color associated with them. Louis' is white, Zoey's is red, Bill's Green, and Francis' black. The color is based on CLOTHING, not SKIN COLOR.



Rated 2 / 5 stars


louis isnt white he's black this is preposterous

StealthBeast responds:

Nor is Zoey red.

Niice! Pretty strange that steam got done downloading a random patch for l4d after i saw it. Like, right at the ending! ;3 But anyways, zhe short was awesome. Great animated.. ;3

StealthBeast responds:

Little did HatCat know that when he completed watching that movie, he was not simply writing a review to an excellent flash short, but he was in fact, in the Twilight Zone. *Music plays*

Lol, Glad you liked it!

Coolio Say Wha?

Great clip, nice use of stick figure animation. Not something I expected. Almost makes me wish you had of done a whole scene. It was smooth and the POV was cool and just like the game when you went from looking at Louis to seeing what he sees. Great work, keep it up!

I do have to disagree with what Coolio said though. "the first is nowhere near as good as anyone thought it would be..."? It was one of the top games and got awards. Come on now, make sure you know what you're talking about. Overall the game is great, the problem is that nothing changes, same bad guys, same levels. Getting more DLC won't help because it's not a game where you can just implement things to make it better. Hence the reason for a 2nd one, new atmosphere, new characters ;)

Oh yeah, L4D1 was definatly as good as was expected... But then again, so was TF2... So why is TF2 half the price, with 5 times the downloadable support as L4D at twice the price? Even if Valve flat out said, "We are no longer supporting L4D1, no campaigns, not even future bug fixes", I definatly got more than 50 dollars out of it.. But that doesn't stop the fact that L4D2's release, combined with the lack of DLC for L4D1 is going to revamp the way we think of Valve (IE, maybe not so dedicated to the community after all...). I was kind of getting the impression that they started to... devalue their community when they didn't release the SDK WITH the game... That they weren't fixing bugs and blatantly obvious balance issues in a timely manner (They shouldn't have been there in the first place. Seriously Valve, your playtesters suck if they could'nt spot the melee-swap, hunter-through-saferoom-door, or infinate molotov glitch.. The fact that they weren't fixed in a timely manner tells me you don't read your bug reports often, because these glitches turned into common knowledge and if you bothered to play your own game, you would have known that.).

Oh right, I'm talking to a random reviewer, not valve... sorry lol

At any rate, I'm glad you liked it.
