Welcome to Show 113 and 3/8!
This time out we welcome two of the developers of DayZ, Matt Lightfoot and Dean "Rocket" Hall. The number of players they have acquired in the space of a few short months is simply astounding (more than EA still has for Star Wars the Old Republic). DayZ, as our listeners probably know, is the mod for Arma II that has had a runaway success. DayZ has been described by Kotaku as "probably one of the best zombie games ever made!" Some of the subjects we discuss with the game’s developers are listed below.
