Here at playerattack, we are quite fond of Eric Ruth Games. We first saw his work with demake of Left 4 Dead, then Capcom vs. Eric Ruth Games, the troubled retro version of DJ Hero, and the lovely rendition of Halo.
Now, Ruth is back, and his magic touch has alighted upon Valve‘s cartoon shooter Team Fortress 2, answering the unspoken question about how the game would look if it were a retro side-scrolling arcade release.

Ruth explains to PikiGeek:
One of my favorite genres of the by-gone arcade era is the side-scrolling beat-‘em-up that used to inhabit the retro arcade scene. I’m a BIG fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles, Final Fight, Streets Of Rage, X-Men Arcade and the mostly forgotten DJ Boy. So, naturally, I tried combining two things I love together (this is how they invented peanut butter and jelly sandwiches) and in the end, came up with the concept that you can now play on your computer for free.
