That Left 4 Dead demake is coming along nicely

By now you would have likely seen the Left 4 Dead demake video that was picked up practically everywhere. If you're one of the few who hasn't seen the footage, don't go back and watch it now. Since then, a new video -- noticed by 1UP -- has gone up, showing just how far this translation to 8-bit has come.

Two players huntin' the infected at once, zombies that aren't riddled with laughably poor depth perception, and a rather adorable-looking Hunter that glides across the screen magnificently. See, this really was a serious step up.

With a little over a month left until this game is going to be released as a free download, there's surely a lot left we haven't been exposed to. And, who knows -- maybe the next time we check in the game will be in even better condition yet.
