They get you while you’re sleeping

I don’t play Left 4 Dead for a week or so, and what happens?  My subconscious decides that I obviously haven’t been killing enough zombies, so I should live out this desire to play L4D by making me dream about Zombies.

In my dream, some guy had a white Pit Bull that seemed very handy at killing zombies for a while.

Which reminds me:
Have you played The Outbreak?

It’s an interactive, choose-your-own-adventure style web film.

But I want to know… why does it always seem to be night time when zombies are around?

One thought on “They get you while you’re sleeping

  1. The Outbreak was pretty good! I liked the colour-coded Chapter Selection feature, it definitely made the whole thing much easier to play and enjoyable.

    I’m not entirely sure I agree with their modus for the results of the player’s choices, this may tie in to your theories on PC Protagonism – as I player I wanted my choices, which I considered to be somewhat informed beyond arbitrary clicking, to have more effect than what turned out to be a narrative based on (possibly more realistic) pure luck.

    I still liked it though! Besides, zombies too have a sense of frugality when it comes to production budgets – day scenes are too much of a burden on their (un)make-up department.
