Left 4 Dead co-dev Turtle Rock Studios reanimated

You might remember Turtle Rock Studios for its series of excellent Counter-Strike mods or for its work on Left 4 Dead -- a project the studio started in 2005 and only finished after being acquired and eventually absorbed by Valve. Though a majority of its staff now works for the PC gaming juggernaut, Turtle Rock's original CEO Michael Booth has revived the outfit and has begun to rebuild its team of developers.

Though we're as yet unsure what projects Turtle Rock is planning, we wish the team the best of luck. Not just because we've loved its games so far, but because we feel an immediate fondness for game developers named after dungeons from A Link to the Past.
