DayZ Developer Diary Shows Game Creator Doing Motion Capture

    February 22, 2013

The last month or so has been a bonanza for gamers following the DayZ standalone game project. The zombie survival game has received regular progress updates including a video presentation of several in-game systems.

Today’s update isn’t a huge info-dump, but fans of the game will be pleased to see that DayZ creator Dean “Rocket” Hall is putting himself into the game. Literally.

A video was posted today to the DayZ development Tumblr blog that shows Rocket himself participating and creating animations in the Bohemia motion capture studio. He suits up and helps make some zombie animations for the game.

The video also shows exactly what ideas the DayZ team has for zombies, which includes a “rage” state similar to the infected seen in 28 Days Later.
