It took us nearly over 3 Years to create this campaign. We found many friends on the digital "crossroads, and we would like to thank the whole community (including our home turf community of l4dmods.Com for thier help and support. would like to especially thank Stephan Botha for his great help during the last 2 years. Without him "Dead before Dawn" wouldn't be so great. Also Chet from Valve helped us out. The Source engine is one of the best engines out there for modders. But the most important help, or lets call it "critics" we got form all the guys who didn't like the halloween 2009 beta version. All comments helped us to do "Dead before Dawn" better!
