No, it’s not a joke, and no, we don’t really hate mountains. “I Hate Mountains” is the name of a Left 4 Dead 1 & 2 campaign made by three French friends. Be aware that this campaign is built the Valve way, we are not trying to revolutionize anything, we just want to provide more content to this awesome game. The campaign is divided into five different maps, just like Valve did with their own campaigns in Left 4 Dead 1. The difference is that ours is entirely nature-oriented, there’s only a few building and most of the action takes place in outdoor environments, which is a challenge to build in itself. We also focused our development on offering a better re-playability by providing several long alternate paths in the levels that can totally change the way you play it.

We really think that it's time to give you some fresh news about what's going on and what's planned for the Left 4 Dead 2 version of I Hate Mountains.

Hi folks,

We really think that it's time to give you some fresh news about what's going on and what's planned for the Left 4 Dead 2 version of I Hate Mountains.

  • First of all, if you didn't check our Twitter recently, you have to know that Nicolas moved in Montréal (Canada) a few weeks ago. So Geoffroy and me assumed the end of the conversion and we are currently working on it. Nicolas actually helps us as much as he can with the help of MSN and Skype.
  • Then, you have to know that we took a long break since September. However, just after the 1.1 release, we listened to all of your critics and built the 1.2 version of I Hate Mountains.This version is already finished and will be simultaneously released with the L4D2 version.

About this last one, we are currently working hard on it and it shouldn't be too long for a release ! As we said on Twitter last week, we fixed a deadline but we prefer not to reveal it for the moment.

Apart from this, we are trying to adapt our original poster into a L4D2 layout style. But we actually hesitate between two instances. Tell us what is your preference, and we will choose according to your votes! (choose screen 1 or 2 in your commentary)

Please keep in mind that these propositions are still work in progress.


Finally, we received a postcard from Francis and his folks. They currently spend some VERY good time in the Canadian forests, and expect to see you again as soon as as possible!


Also, if you liked I Hate Mountains and wish to vote for us, please do so by clicking the vote button above (or on the front page), it’s free and you don’t have to register ! Feel free to share it on Facebook or Twitter too.

And a last word : Thanks to Valve and their last DLC which has greatly simplified our work! It took time, but it's finally good!

Hmm... for the poster, I'm leaning towards #1 more. I really like the leaves and branches you threw in there. :P Great to hear the map conversion is coming out well!

hmm, its a hard decision, cuz poster 1 looks more classic like the other L4D posters, and too looks nice and new.

Screen 1 is easier to read and fits in with all of the other posters better.

I think my buddies managed to get the L4D1 characters in the L4D2 version. But it's up to them to confirm that.

I pick #1. It's more in keeping with the official posters, and the leaves and whatnot are kinda creepy.
