What The Left 4 Dead Box Art Almost Looked Like

Hardcore Christian Gamer writes: "Over at the Left 4 Dead Blog is a post talking about some of the different iterations of box art the company went through before finally settling on the iconic thumbless hand that now graces the covers of all our retail copies of the game."

The story is too old to be commented.

I am glad they went with what they have now. That looks a little cheesy.

I actually kinda like the second and third one, though. They might not be as well suited as box art as the final image, because they don't stand out enough from other titles, but I wouldn't mind having them as poster.

i love the Valve blogs. getting to see processes and what not behind the scenes interests me a lot.

That's the ugliest boxart I've seen in a long time.

Very generic.

The final art is clever, and almost iconic.

(Two thumbless hands for the inevitable sequel?)

I like the cover that they went for as well. I have a title for the sequel that they could use:

Left 4 Dead Again

Avenged Sevenfold3300d ago

Two thumbless fingers.

"They 8 Our Brains..."

@ Covenant
The final art is not clever.
Its a bit of a rip off really.

Check this out.

Thant doesn't mean I don't like the cover though.

L4D doesn't need a sequel. There's no story, no denoument, no plot.

It just needs more scenarios, maybe weapons, maybe characters. This will be done in a very Valve way.

I don't think there will be a sequel, only DLC.
