This may be a fan-made project, but it's a must-play if you are looking for a reason to revisit Left 4 Dead. —Ben Kuchera (

    I never thought that I would say this, but a portation to L4D2 isnt necessary at all. This is just perfect and better than anything else.

    (A portation would only make sense if the random-way-director would be used to block passages and make the player search for a way)

    Thx very much

    Loved the campaign, really generated a sense of atmosphere and immersion. It wasn’t perfect, but it was excellent.

    What’s with the site coming off as a bunch of snarky comments directed at Valve, though? Definitely a sense-of-entitlement vibe going on here, especially with the things Valve has apparently done FOR the project.

      “especially with the things Valve has apparently done FOR the project.”
      Which means, nothing.

        I guess gratitude is an alien concept to some people.

        • K says:

          Wait, I lied! I realize I phrased that poorly. The fact that Valve contributed to the process when they were in no way obligated to makes the snarkiness even more uncalled for, and that pushes the entitlement vibe. I didn’t mean that Valve is contributing to the sense of entitlement by helping.

          • Nicolas says:

            Valve didn’t help us when we had issues, they didn’t fix the game, they didn’t supported it and they left us in the dark more than once when we asked them questions about things that were going wrong for no reason. Worse of all, they broke some features after the release and delayed our project by months. It’s probably out of their reach and they probably have better things to do, it’s just that I don’t think they deserve any praise. Now I agree we got a bit too sarcastic and acid at some point, but that’s the polite way of expressing 16 months of frustration and disillusions.

    For what it worth, I stopped playing L4D months ago.
    Thanks to you and IHT, it does sound like a rebirth

    congrat dudes, except “bioazard” area where we can be stuck, it is awesome.

    I tried this out online a few times. I think the level design was superb. Very detailed.
    Its just sad though my experience playing it was ruined a 3 out of the 4 times I played this online. By the crap servers. Usually custom maps are on local server of the lobby leader, which usually ends up in a Disconnected from server error before the map is finished, or the servers that have custom campaigns have ridiculous mods.

    I have only complaint about the map is general. I think it was too dim. If you ever release a update maby turn up the hdr to like .6 or .7 in the light_environment and fog controller. This way it will give the illusion of being dark while being fully lit up. Like the official campaigns.

    La carte a son petit succès dans le jeu!!! =)

    Bravo en tout cas, je trouve cette campagne limite mieux que les officielles xD

    Bonne route pour le portage sur L4D2, si vous le faites… =D

    A suggestion for missing material/ models in l4d2
    >>Combined Extra Assets Beta01
    It may help with the missing stuff.

  17. Johnny says:

    Hey guys.
    Heard from your campaign. Been told that it would be worth a try. Somebody showed me a video of it. Impressive.
    But now, I am playing it. The chapter with the helicopter-scene has a fat bug. Everytime you get in contact with any tiny part of the exploded helicopter, you get stuck. Then you have to die. No other choice.
    That’s bad and sad. Because this campaign really looks nice.
