Watch Dean "Rocket" Hall's huge Rezzed Q&A for DayZ

On the standalone game, dogs and much more.

There were a few developer sessions at this year's inaugural Rezzed show that were so full we had to turn people away. One was Peter Molyneux, obviously (who did not disappoint - he swore, he used the word "sperms", it was generally amazing), and another was Randy Pitchford, who did a long demo of Borderlands 2 and spent ages answering questions from the audience.

On Saturday though, the place to be was in Dean "Rocket" Hall's DayZ session. Which is pretty impressive considering that DayZ is a modification for a hardcore PC simulation shooter (ArmA 2), which most people who read this site probably don't own. Or at least didn't until DayZ hit - Dean Hall's mod has helped the game shift over 100,000 copies since he launched it.

In his lengthy Rezzed session, he talked a bit about the mod's origins, why it's endured a difficult period of growth, and his hopes for its future. But the majority of the time is given over to open Q&A with the huge audience, during which Hall touched upon how the game may go standalone, whether dogs are a possibility, and loads of other stuff. If you play DayZ, you'll want to watch this.

We'll be posting more Rezzed session videos as we go through the week, so watch out for more. And again, thanks if you came!
