I haven't played the game yet, but for those who are unfamliar with it, DayZ is a multiplayer horror survival game where your sole mission is to loot for items and survive against the zombie apocalypse. The game sounds utterly fascinating, especially considering how those you will meet will treat you. To document this, the hey are you cool Tumblr blog curated by Chris Livingston documents all the players met so far in the game. Both creepy and fascinating.
The first person I met in DayZ said "hey are you cool"
What he meant was "You're not going to try to kill me, right?"
This is a record of the other players I've encountered in DayZ (and a few other odds and ends).
