DayZ, created by Dean “Rocket” Hall, is a zombie, survival video game mod built on the existing ArmaII war game. Hall and his team of developers are working on a standalone version of DayZ which should be released sometime this year.
The guys over at Corridor Digital made this amazing short film based on the game DayZ.
Should DayZ be made into a feature length movie? Why or why not?
Some exciting news over on the DayZ development blog. Rocket, Lead Developer on the Standalone and Matt Lightfoot, Production Assistant, have released a video blog, seen after the jump, covering some of the new updates on the game.
The video blog puts the development team closer to the games fans by allowing everyone to actually see what’s been going on over at the DayZ standalone camp.
The video shows off some of the new menu system, user interface and clothing system. Later in the video they show off some tweaked areas of the map known as Chernarus, from the Arma II mod. They also explain some of the loot spawn system.
“It would be fair to say that inventory and crafting are the key development objective currently, second only to the client/server architecture (makes DayZ more like an MMO), and new zombie AI mechanics (an ongoing task).”
It’s interesting to watch someone running around in the actual game world. We get to see inside some of the houses and buildings that, up until now, we’ve only been able to see in photos.
