Isn’t technology marvellous? Just when you thought Left 4 Dead 2 was strangely similar and yet incredibly different from Left 4 Dead here’s another version.
Yes; the 8-Bit Left 4 Dead version.
The genius we have to thank / beat with a frying pan for this is Eric Ruth. He’s spent weeks, even months, working on this game. Despite how quickly the game has come together it looks pretty cool! In a retro sort of way.
Stephen Totilo at Kotaku picked this up from Eric’s site to describe the program.
Pixel Force: Left 4 Dead is a retro de-make of Valve’s hit zombie killing masterpiece. Lovingly recreated in a fashion that would have been acceptable in 1986 for the Nintendo Entertainment System, this de-make stands as the flagship title of the upcoming Pixel Force series from Eric Ruth Games. Go alone, or invite a friend for 2 player co-op against the zombie apocalypse in all 4 of the original game campaigns. 2 difficulties and all 4 of the survivors make a glorious 8-bit appearence, complete with first and second tier weapons scattered along your path to escape. So, grab your controller of choice and kick back with an award-winning retro take on the end of the world with Pixel Force: Left 4 Dead.
