The Internet is a weird place.
Sometimes, those oddities give birth to something that is nothing short of amazing.
I give you, Twitch Plays Pokemon.
Well, if your were worried about the popular Arma 2 mod “DayZ” flopping once it became a standalone game, you can put those fears aside. DayZ sold a staggering 88,000 copies on Steam in it’s first 12 hours on the market.
Even “Maruk” from Bohemia Interactive tweeted about the success saying “88.000 Survivors have joined DayZ Alpha in it’s first 12 hours. Thank you.” And even high profile people in the industry have been vocal about the success, with Gears of War creator tweeting about his experience with the game.
