F2P Browser Game ‘MiniDayZ’ Adds Multiplayer

Have you heard of MiniDayZ? It’s a 2D browser-based version of Bohemia Interactive’s Zombie Survival MMO. It appears to be a side project, but for fans of retro games or gamers not sold on the brutal realities of post-apocalyptic survival, it’s a nice little sampler of what the full-on ‘Day Z’ would be like. – especially since it just added multiplayer, which means you can experience the true horror of how dastardly humans can be to one another behind the mask of telecommunications.

MiniDayZ (and its big brother) load you on the shore of an abandoned, eastern European landmass, and simply tasks you to survive against zombies, the elements, starvation, famine, and your fellow humans. All of which is easier said than done. While MiniDayZ has yet to add crafting, there are all sorts of upgrades, weapons, items, nooks, and crannies to explore…if you can survive longer than five minutes.

It’s quite a bit of fun, though some features are missing, and you can expect quite a bit of trial and error before making *any* progress. At the least it’s certainly more accessible than other titles from the developer.

If you’re the sort of gamer who doesn’t invest a heck of a lot of time on their computer, but likes a bit of multiplayer psychological warfare from time-to-time, this a neat little title that appears to have a great future ahead of it. Depending on where development goes, it’d be perfectly suited for phones, tablets, or consoles as a sort of ‘casual’ companion to the full-on ‘Day Z’ experience.

There’s also something for aesthetics. This game, along with ‘Dead Ahead‘ on mobile, and ‘Project Zomboid‘ on PC are expanding the world of zombies visually. Dead Ahead is anime inspired, Project Zomboid has a strong XCom vibe, and ‘MiniDayZ’ seems to harken back to the days of AOL multiplayer games and SNES-era pixel art.

Be sure to check this one out if you like in-depth browser games, zombie games, or a taste of the delicious braincake that is ‘DayZ’, with far less calories.

Helldivers 2 has seen a rapid rise in popularity, presenting both opportunities and challenges for Arrowhead Game Studio. Although one could argue that the studio has produced a modern masterpiece, Helldivers 2 is still prone to persistent connection issues. Players who have shown great patience with the ongoing server issues in the game are now starting to clash, focusing on personal gain instead of uniting for the success of Super Earth.

IGN reported that players are pleading with Arrowhead to include an AFK auto-kick feature on the Helldivers subreddit. This request comes after some players confessed to remaining logged in to continue playing and bypass the unpredictable server connection process. This issue requires an urgent resolution.

The leader of Arrowhead, Johan Pilestedt, was informed about the problem and assured that the developers were investigating the situation. “I have already communicated this to the team,” Pilestedt confirmed. Regarding Helldivers updates, Xbox players are now petitioning Arrowhead to release the game on their platform after comments from Xbox boss Phil Spencer about the game’s exclusivity.

Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi series has garnered significant acclaim from players, with Cal Kestis’ gripping journey of survival serving as a focal point. Actor Cameron Monaghan, renowned for his portrayal of Kestis in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Survivor, has expressed his openness to bringing the character to life in a live-action adaptation. However, Monaghan emphasizes that certain conditions must be met for him to consider reprising the role.

During a panel at FanExpo Vancouver 2024, Monaghan, known for his roles in Shameless and Gotham, provided insight into his perspective. While many actors would eagerly seize any opportunity to join the Star Wars universe, Monaghan’s willingness to portray Kestis in live-action hinges on the narrative significance and continuation of the character’s story. Merely appearing as a superficial presence would not align with his vision; there must be substantial meaning and relevance for Kestis within the context of the story.

As anticipation builds for a potential third installment in the Star Wars Jedi series, Respawn Entertainment’s reported development of a first-person Mandalorian game raises intriguing possibilities. Could Kestis find himself embarking on new adventures within this immersive gaming experience?

Fans are speculating and curious about the possibility of a live-action Star Wars movie starring Dominic Monaghan. Would such a project capture your interest? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
