DayZ creator interview

Some pretty cool stuff. I'll copy a few paragraphs but head over for the full thing.


Quote:
It's proved so popular that it has fired Bohemia's three-year-old game to the top of the Steam charts, and now constitutes around 20 per cent of its total lifetime sales. Considering it's only been live for a few weeks, that's a remarkable achievement.

Quote:
Although Day Z has already racked up around 170,000 unique users and provided Bohemia with roughly 100,000 new ArmA 2 sales, Hall is yet to make a penny from his efforts.

"No, I haven't but obviously if I was negotiating something [for a full game release] there'd be something there for me to be looked after," he reveals.

"But I'm still pretty young. For me the big benefit out of it is hopefully being able to make a little imprint on the industry and maybe carve out a new niche. That's good for me personally. There's time to cash in on it later."

And yet, I'm the only one here playing it. All you other PC gamers here are just awful people.
