The Anacrusis is a new co-op shooter set on a spaceship from the 1970s

So, that’s basically Left 4 Dead, right?

chetChet Faliszek won’t begrudge you for thinking his newest game sounds a lot like one of his old ones. The Anacrusis, coming this fall to Windows PC via Steam, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X on Xbox Game Pass, is a cooperative shooter in which four players must fight together against a relentless horde of mindless monsters.

“First, I love Left 4 Dead, so, any mention of that is fine,” said Faliszek, Valve’s project leader and lead writer for the 2008 game and its sequel a year later. The comparisons don’t bother him, because his new studio, Stray Bombay Company, is drawing on the lessons he learned in effectively establishing a new sub-genre more than a decade ago.

On Left 4 Dead, “I had a unique position of not only just learning about the gameplay, the story and everything else, but also the influence talking through a lot of these things with Gabe and other people at Valve,” Faliszek said. “And taking that and saying, ‘OK, what would you want to see out of that?”
