First of all, great looking map. You've come a long way considering L4D isn't that old yet. The parts that are recognizable from the movie are the best parts. The little paths between those places though seem to generic and undetailed but I'm confident you can fix that. I'll be watching this thing.

The commentary is great. Very funny. Especially your mom interrupting :D. Keep up the good work and make some more vids.

Enjoyed watching your video.. and yes, funny when you mum dropped in, but lets hope you didn't lie to her about what you were playing? lol... And the last part where you were running saying, "Don't look back, don't look back..." lol.. but that aside, you have done a lot of work and even though it is on a fake SDK with a few texture errors, all up it looks pretty good. I am sure you will polish things up and we can see the mall before you get run down by a stinker or two... lol..

I laughed quite a few times at the vid. good vid, good commentary, and so far things are looknig good.

I take it, this campaign is taking place after the events of Dawn of the Dead, or are they taking place eg, 10mins after the movie (IE, Anna just crashd her car, and 10mins later you stumble upon the wreck).

Unfortunately I can't watch this video - too large and is taking too long to load for my liking. Any chance someone could upload it to Youtube?

That looked great, the commentary put it over the top amazing :P I like how at the end you said if I can make it to the Mall you can see it and after a while of zombie screaming it just ended so I'm assuming that you didn't quite make it. Really wanted to see the mall from the screenshots it looks crazy. Keep up the great work I'm sure everyone is looking foward to this campaign.

bahahah "don't look back don't look back don't look bad, ah the birds are flying" :D

I dunno why everyone is whinging about the german accent, I found darth brush easy to understand, was kindof a boring video because everything was super dark, but ohwell, you get that :P

What I've discovered is that people greatly vary in their ability to understand accents. Some can understand his accent very clearly, whereas others just hear noises, as if he isn't speaking English. Unfortunately, I'm closer to the latter group, so I couldn't understand most of what he said. And what I could understand, I had to mentally process for several seconds. But the gameplay looked fun.

I thought the whole thing about L4D from listenning to the in game commentary, was that the zombies were procedural and were not scripted. So I don't know if the L4D sdk will let you do that.
