DayZ by PatrickBrown DayZ by PatrickBrown

This was my first experience of the game.. True story!

I was just checking out how sweet the graphics looked through the forest until a damn Zombie spooked me, and since I was fresh to the game the closest thing I had to a weapon was a pack of band-aids and a bottle of water.. So I sprinted, and this one zombie was just as quick as me.. I spotted a small town and headed toward it thinking there might be another player there who could pick him of for me with a rifle.. Nope, instead I was greeted by a swarm of Zombies looking for some num nums.

So this picture explains my next 20+ kilometers of running.. Haha I loved it though, strangely! Great game, it'll be even better when it's made into a legit title that's easy to set up.

I also made the main character myself haha, this will be my new ID.. Enjoy!

Just saw this being used in advertising for a mobile game, 'Last Empire: War Z' on twitter. Just wanted to give you a heads up in case they ripped it off!

I saw that too, when I was playing shadow fight. I think they ripped him off

May I use this in a Twitch overlay, if I give you credit for it in my info?
P4lkinn Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2016
Yeah, what Fingolfin said:

Is it legit use of the pic for the Last Empire War Z game? Or just ripped outta DA?

I'm afraid the game developers stole this. Did you see it, Patrick?
IvanRostoff Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2016

It's going to be tough to shake all of the zombies off without a gun.Especially if it's Dayz.Those zombies are relentless.

This artwork is amazing. I love the cartoony look, and the expression on the survivor's face is priceless.
