Dean Hall’s Stationeers spacewalks into early access

I want to be the type of person who plays and enjoys Stationeers, the Space Station 13-inspired construction and management game from Day Z creator Dean Hall's studio Rocketwerkz. Unfortunately, I am the type of person who initially gets excited at the prospect of managing complex interlocking systems, then finds it all too much and scampers back to Overwatch. That won't stop me trying mind,…

DayZ creator’s space game Ion has been cancelled

Ion, a simulation-heavy space game inspired by role-playing adventure Space Station 13 and announced by Dean Hall back at E3 in 2015 has been cancelled, reports Eurogamer. A sad day for fans of dying from a lack of oxygen in a floating metal cylinder, but perhaps not surprising given the ambition behind the game. “I want a game that is not a game," Hall had…

Dean Hall to unveil new RocketWerkz game at Rezzed

Dean Hall (him of DayZ creation fame, hence the header image) will be using EGX Rezzed to offer people the first chance to see and play the latest game from his studio, RocketWerkz. I've lost track of what Hall has been up to so having dug through the press release and the RPS archives the game in question is NOT Ion and it's NOT a…

Feature: VR tower defence + FPS

Impressions: DayZ Blokey Dean Hall’s Out Of Ammo

I suspect the 'I'd love to see X in VR' conversations have dried up already. No, we're not getting Dishonored: CorVRo's Birthday Surprise or Total WaVR: VRHammer, because the headsets' screens aren't really up to it, and few of us have PCs which can power it anyway. As that message sets in, thoughts turn from what VR gaming would ideally do and towards what can…

Ion: DayZ Creator’s Sandbox Space MMO Announced

DayZ creator Dean 'Rocket' Hall has announced his next game, Ion [official site], at E3. He calls it a "simulation MMO that explores mankind's expansion into space" and Space Station 13 is cited as an inspiration, which sounds like a fine mix for wacky emergent antics. It'll be simulation-heavy, and sounds great. Come have a look at the first trailer, and hear what he had…

Forever Undead: Dean Hall And Indie Stone Talk Zombies

Mid-way through Rezzed, I decided that somebody must have cloned Dean Hall. The DayZ creator was everywhere. One minute he was talking about the most frightening moment of his life - hanging off the side of Everest, I hear - and the next he was playing games on the showfloor. If he wasn't admiring Maia with an excited twinkle in his eye, he was telling…

Stand Alone: Dean Hall To Leave Bohemia And DayZ

In this episode of Tales of the Unexpected, we learn that DayZ creator and lead Dean Hall plans to leave Bohemia by the end of 2014, in order to set up a new studio in New Zealand. The early access version of the multiplayer survival sim passed 1.5 million players this weekend and I don't think it's dropped out of the top three sellers on…

DayZ Still Potentially Many Dayz Away

Did you play DayZ before it was cool? I did. I spent two hours getting it to work and a further six hours wandering around aimlessly before it clicked and I had fun, because that's the kind of trendsetting cool guy that I am. But I understand if you're waiting for the standalone release, that maybe makes it more functional and accessible. We can't all…
