The flagship title of the PixelForce NES de-makes is Valve’s Left 4 Dead.
This game play footage gives you an idea of what the project looks like in action and how it plays. As you can see, it’s a standard top-down 4 directional action/shooter. Remade in the NES retro style, the resolution is at 256 x 240 and features 16 colors and a 4 sound channel soundtrack.
Now, let’s just get this out of the way….
Q: Is this just an animation or an actual game?
A: An actual game. It will be available for free download on PC around January 4th, 2010.
Q: I only see one “special infected.” Will there be more?
A: Yes. All 5 special infected appear in this game regularly.
Q: How far along are you currently?
A: As of November 15th, I am completed with the first “mission: No Mercy” as well as most of the core game play mechanics.
Q: Does Valve know about this? And would they approve?
A: No, Valve doesn’t know about it yet, but I’m sure (with their love of community creations) that they will find this mildly amusing at worst, and hilarious at best.
Q: Will this version have all of the campaigns from the original game?
A: Yes. All 5 maps of all 4 campaigns will be present in the final product.
Q: Like your other games, did you make this one all by yourself?
A: With the exception of a few friends backing me up in the QA area, yes, the coding, debugging, sound effects, music and pixel art are all original work of Eric Ruth.
Q: Will there be more videos that show off more of the game?
A: Maybe 1 or 2, but that’s about it. If you want to see every campaign and fight every zombie, then you will have to download and play it.
This should just about wrap it up. When more information becomes available, I will display it somewhere here. Thanks a lot guys, and keep watching!
