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 4.5 / 5 stars

Any flash on L4D ends up being gold

This game is ace, and so is this flash, i'd like to see one featuring each of the four of them, maybe with a different special infected threatening each different character. keep up the good work anyway

StealthBeast responds:

After seeing my Sounds of CS animation be Plagurised miserably on youtube (Over 2 million views and I didn't get the credit... wtf) I've actually been looking into it. But because this animation utilises the V-Cam, I can't find a method of exporting it to a format youtube will take without breaking the animation.

Glad you liked it. If you know of an efficient way to get my SWF to a video format feel free to e-mail, AIM, or PM me.

Stick animation.....

Not a fan of stick animation but it was a pretty decent stick animation so I'll let that slide.

I think it would've been easier if you made his skin color his actual skin color since only him and Zoey are being portrayed, but whatever.

The sounds and voices are probably the best part of this, its always cool to hear the characters say lines.

And as for L4D2 Im glad its coming out, Its another game so be happy + Its not like thier abondoning L4D, they're still gonna make DLC for it alongside its sequel so dont make a fuss about it.

StealthBeast responds:

If I made Louis brown (his actual skin color), he wouldn't have enough contrast with the dark backrounds. If I made Zoey Light tan (her skin color) it would look like she's naked lol.

White helps Louis stand out, as does red help Zoey. Additionally, it helped give a feminine tone to Zoey.

Yeah, the character lines took about 2 dedicated days by themselves. Alot of that time was just finding them lol. Valve just dumps all the lines into single directories like "Thank01.mp3, Thank02.mp3, Thank03.mp3"

I hope your right about L4D2.. but I don't think so. They haven't really added any DLC to L4D1 BEFORE L4D2, so how are they gonna manage to do it AFTER?

Oh that silly little 50 yard map and that game mode that you can make with 3 server commands? I don't count that as real DLC.

I think the sound effects and the animation go together great.
The faces and other features of the stick really match with the game characters.
But, For some There is only one thing that bugged me.
While the video was playing, The stickmen had the cursor look like they were clickable.
But hey, its a great movie. :3

StealthBeast responds:

ahaha Yeah, I accidentally made those limbs buttons early in production. There's no way to correct it unfortunatly.

I should make one of the limbs go to some secret screen or something... hmmm lol

At any rate, glad you liked the movie, thanks for the 10.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


It's a nice flash.
The graphs are kinda sucky but the sound is awesome

StealthBeast responds:

PSH. Fine lol. 7/10 aint so bad I guess. Glad you liked it.
