Thanks for feedback, am actually fairly patient for stuff like this and love games where your own mind is the atmosphere … not instant action I suppose?
So I fired it up again this morning but upon installing it on my second game PC … LO and behold it supports Steam Cloud saves, but this time I was still in same tower I’d left off last time in pitch black, but in daylight now and had a look around … had read this game did not support real time, real world daylight night time cycle, upon a few days later save test … awoke to find myself in broad daylight so maybe it does now?
Had found a good look around from the tower I’d found in night time, a sort of safe place to stay for a while, but am now thinking it might be a good strategy to do in this world … I’d been walking around in pitch black for ages before with just a flare, but upon finding the tower, thought I’d climb it for safety … had the headphones on in darkened room, was feeling quite spooked wandering around alone, the sounds in the woods are very well done, Owls hooting, moving shadows in the darkness … you get the feeling somethings going on and you don’t quite know what … it implores you to keep exploring and find somewhere safe until daylight at least … very atmospheric.
Anyone who has seen original Blair Witch Project movie will know what I mean.
Very cool, and Yep, was so surprised to see on next save I had been wandering about in pitch black but upon the dawn of light saw how close I was to a very big settlement and town, scanned around and the scenery looked amazing … could hear some distant explosions and realised this was probably from real players and if I wanted some action, then that’s where I should be headed in my adventure in DayZ land.
Not for instant gratification shoot players I guess (and thats fun too) but for exploring and occasionally finding real people, good fun too I guess.
Not encountered any Zombies or suchlike yet, but am scanning around for anything at all to help me survive in this adventure.
Love the Modern Zombie movies too
This 28 days later Loneliness and bewilderment Movie scene is exactly the same feeling I’ve found upon starting DayZ
Gamers looking for more traditional shooters should look elsewhere, its not that type of thing.
