MiniDayZ

dayz.com/minidayz Cre­ated by Mike Azovskikh,

MiniDayZ re­casts Bo­hemia’s sur­vival sim into a top-down 2D browser game. It re­ceived Bo­hemia’s bless­ing when DayZ cre­ator Dean Hall spot­ted an early ver­sion of the game and put Azovskikh in touch with the stu­dio. Now the cur­rent build is avail­able to play via Bo­hemia’s web­site for free. Each game starts out much like DayZ, with the player ap­pear­ing some­where on the shore of a large is­land with noth­ing but a T-shirt, a pair of trousers and their fists. You’ll have to keep an eye on your thirst and hunger lev­els, as well as your tem­per­a­ture as you scav­enge for sup­plies in zom­bie-in­fested towns. It’s suit­ably tough, even on the eas­i­est of the three dif­fi­cul­ties, and ba­sic craft­ing, inventory man­age­ment and com­bat have made it in. All told, it’s a con­vinc­ing dis­til­la­tion.
