DayZ Is “Two or Three Hours Away from Complete Disaster at Any Time”

Just like the life of a human survivor during a zombie apocalypse, Arma 2′s DayZ mod is only a couple of hours away from disaster at any time. Speaking with Edge, DayZ creator Dean “Rocket” Hall explained the pressures of designing the game and delivering DayZ updates to the community. Hall said:

“It’s scary and it’s also fun at the same time. In a way, the project is basically about two or three hours away from complete disaster at any time. Every time we do an update it’s just terrifying. And a lot of people get very frustrated when things go wrong.

“There are almost two sides [to the community]. There’s the side that will just support anything that happens in the project, and then there’s the side that’s very critical of things that happen but continues playing.

“And I think that’s very important, because otherwise it’ll lose direction and ego will come into it. For me, the importance is that the right community is involved in it, because if we don’t have that then we can’t push the experiment of having players create the world.”

DayZ has been downloaded half a million times and is the reason Arma 2 has risen to the top of the Steam charts in recent weeks. Have you gotten your zombie on with DayZ?
