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.

This is it! No, we ain't speaking about the Michael Jackson post-mortem movie but about the Left 4 Dead 2 version of I Hate Mountains subtly dubbed I Hate Mountains 2! We are hereby releasing the 1.2 version of both Left 4 Dead 1 and Left 4 Dead 2 versions of the campaign.

It certainly took time, almost 8 months... At the beginning, we honestly thought this port would be a piece of cake, but we just couldn't figure how difficult it would be and how life would change for each of us following the release of the first version. Between missing content, broken features, crashes and unexplainable issues, we were really this close to give up during these last months.

I Hate Mountains 2 Poster

To be entirely honest, the 1.2 version for Left 4 Dead 1 was already finished for a few months (since august 2010 to be precise), but due to a huge lack of motivation (we're working on it for over 2 years now) and Nicolas' departure who decided to move and directly hate mountains in Canada, we had almost stopped the Left 4 Dead 2 port. But finally, we decided to keep going on when a Polycount manager asked for an interview and fresh news about it. We realized that some people were still waiting for the Left 4 Dead 2 version and we didn't want to disappoint them.

We worked hard on it and we managed to fix everything we could. But despite all our efforts, some minor issues remain unsolvable as of today. Those are actually listed on the I Hate Mountains forums and in the README.txt file included in the download. But you should still be able to play the Left 4 Dead 2 version in quite an optimal way compared to what we thought would be achievable. We really spent a lot of time to test the campaign with a fellow French gaming team which allowed us to fix plenty of unusual and rare exploits.

Finally, You should keep in mind that this new version of I Hate Mountains is really an exact port of the Left 4 Dead 1 version. We didn't spend much time tweaking the maps with the new available assets, but above all we didn't change our specific art direction (it's still dark). By the way, we thank Valve for the last DLC for both games that allowed us to use the old survivors in Left 4 Dead 2 and to preserve the true spirit of the campaign.

We hope you will enjoy I Hate Mountains again, be it with the updated Left 4 Dead 1 version or the new Left 4 Dead 2 one with all the features and improvements of the second game. You can enjoy it right know on this friendly French server: Left4dead2 'playersfactory'

Just played your campaign and I was really impressed. Its absolutely amazing. Easily on par with Valves maps.
We only had one glitch around the helicopter crash at the mansion where one of my friends got stuck in mid air. We just let him die though and continued on!

Hey buddies! This might be a little spoilish but I'm getting some weird errors. I'm on the second mission where you have to bunker up in the abandoned house and wait for a rescue aircraft. The aircraft leaves and so I end up in the front yard with endless waves of zombies rushing my team. I tried to move to a gate with barbed wire that's off to the right hand side if facing the house. Suddenly I can't move and all the zombies that run up to us stick their arms straight in the air and just kind of stand there. Would having texture mods mess this campaign up? Thank you.

I remember a moment, when it turned out that the best upcoming mod of MOTY2008 was Dead Before Down. I was waiting and waiting for it, hoping in vain, that it'll be first really good campaign for L4D... and when it was released, I was so disappointed - almost everything was wrong with it.

And now there's I hate mountains - the campaign has everything, I wanted to see in DBD. It's designed almost perfectly - even, there's a lot of routes leading to a target, there's so many hints, that it's hard to get lost. Some of the places are breathtaking, a Crescendo events are really awesome and some are spectacular. I even got scared in the 3rd level - THESE GUYS REALLY KNOW HOW TO CREATE A GREAT ATMOSPHERE!

After all - this map is almost perfect!
Must-play for anyone who has L4D!
10/10 for me.
