Unofficial 8-bit Left 4 Dead available

Indie PC freebie offers original campaigns.

Indie game developer Eric Ruth has released an 8-bit inspired take on Valve's Left 4 Dead, and it's available to download for PC on his website.

Ruth's remake, called Pixel Force: Left 4 Dead, offers top-down takes on the original four campaigns with reworked graphics, music and controls, and has a two-player mode and everything.

It's worth checking out on YouTube for the cutesy takes on Bill, Zoey, Francis and Louis if nothing else.

Ruth describes himself as an aspiring developer who makes free games while he is seeking employment at a respectable studio.
