Dean "Rocket" Hall's acclaimed mod takes Bohemia Interactive's military sim Arma 2 and twists it into a tense, emergent, survival multiplayer experience, partly by adding zombies, but mainly by allowing players to be utter bastards to one another. While you can always be sure of a zombie's intentions, you never know whether a fellow human is going to lend you supplies, rob you blind or blow your head off - often they settle on all three.

Despite being out for months before, the Day Z mod recently hit Steam, allowing it to be installed with a minimum of fuss. Hall is currently working on a standalone release that unshackles the game from its Arma 2 requirement, while polishing and revamping it in the process.
