The one-time Arma II mod turned standalone game DayZ continues to steamroll the world of PC gaming. Developer Dean “Rocket” Hall just announced 1 million sales in 4 weeks – at $29.99 a copy, that gives Dean “Rocket Hall” and his team $29,990,000 (minus Valve’s cut) to play with. Not bad for a game that isn’t even close to finished.
“We’re just blown away with the success of it,” Hall told Polygon in an email. “We obviously knew that there was strong interest in the concept, but weren’t sure whether that interest was just ‘hype’ or whether it would actually translate into real sales. I remember when we finally pushed the button, I had this moment of panic when I wondered if many people would really buy it.”
