GDC 2013: Dean "Rocket" Hall: The Mind Behind DayZ


DayZ has captured the imagination and instilled passion in many gamers with its tension and ability to create game sessions that you will never forget. I will always remember climbing a high tower near Cherno to provide support to a friend who was firmly ensconced in a sniper position.

“I’m coming up the steps now,” I said on several occasions and, of course, as I got to his position he turned around and shot me in the face. Attempting to refrain from expletives, I had to remember he wasn’t trolling, he had just responded in a way that many do playing DayZ.

He’d panicked.

Few games in recent years have ramped up tension so unbearably and with such immersion.

When I met Dean “Rocket” Hall in a hotel near GDC central, the Moscone center; like many fans I was full of anticipation when talking about DayZ and its evolution into standalone.

BFF Report Episode 110: ARMA 2: DayZ Mod

In this week's BFF Report #110, ZAM's Mike B. aka fony decided to get down and dirty with the mega popular zombie survival mod for ARMA 2: DayZ! DayZ is essentially a sandbox zombie survival game where players must scavenge food, supplies, and weaponry from the surrounding countryside (or other players), all the while evading roaming packs of zombies. The premise is fairly simple but, given the sandbox nature of the game, there are all sorts of opportunities for emergent game narrative, with players banding together (or betraying each other) for a better chance at survival.
