Eric Ruth’s NES-style reworking of Valve’s zombie shooter Left 4 Dead I touched on several weeks back is officially finished and has been released into the wild as a freeware download.
The game includes the original survivors, weapons and campaigns from the original L4D. Keeping the retro authenticity, the game includes 2-player local co-op, as Ruth points out “Back in 1986, games were generally 2 player… not 4.”
The file weighs in at 21 MB and is available via FileShack. No word on whether or not Ruth is considering a Left 4 Dead 2 remake. From the notes:
A fan-made “retro de-make” of Left 4 Dead, featuring two-player co-op with the Francis, Zoe and all the original gang in 8-bit style.Tags: 8-Bit, Demake, Download, Freeware, L4D, Left 4 Dead, NES
