In this campaign you will visit the fictional city of Dawn, visit Anna's house, and of-course arrive at a carefully recreated Crossroads mall where an ever charming CJ will send you on a wild zombie hunt with custom created events and crescendo's optimized for a fast paced left 4 dead experience.

A short video trailer of the mall. With some ads we made for the shops in the mall.

Darth along with his sense of humour have whipped up a little teaser for Dead Before Dawn to brighten up your Thursday. Pay attention at the end, we think you'll be pleasantly surprised... would like to thank Valve for sending us this recording to use in our Campaign. To find out what the recording is, you better watch the video!

This is going to be super great! I love Dawn of the Dead (the original more than the remake)! If I had Left 4 Dead, I'd get this in a heartbeat.

I have l4d, but I dont play it anymore. Ever since they announced l4d 2, I just feel l4d is to buggy and incomplete to waste my time playing on.
So i uninstalled, a month ago.
If i could gift it to you I would, at this point I might as well have flushed 50$ down the toilet.

I played a few hundred hours of L4D. I do not feel ripped off. I payed 40$, Christmas deal, 10$ less, not that much. Any game that gives me over 40 hours worth of gameplay, I say = worth 50$.

Mass Effect: 17 hours, doing every quest and exploring = 50$, not worth it.

Crysis: 6-7 hours, maybe 8 if yer slow. Price: 50$, technical issues included, not worth it.

Fallout 3: 36 hours,50$: pretty much worth it with DLC included. Though the ending left something to be desired. :P

I'm just saying, alot worse you could have done than L4D for 50$. You could be like those poor Killing Floor suckers forced to buy Model replacements. :P The game was cheap, but it seems future content won't be.
