This DayZ live-action short is spot on with its tone

Day Z live action fan film 1

The game's creator, Dean Hall, thinks it's "Awesome".

DayZ, the gruelling post-apocalyptic zombie survival game from creator Dean Hall, has been given the live-action treatment.

Dean Hall, who departed Day Z developer Bohemia Interactive last year, described the movie as "Awesome" on Twitter.

Etnerum Pictures created the three and a half minute video, which is a montage of events you would expect to experience when playing the game, but in a much more cinematic fashion.

You can watch the video below - it's really well-made, and is quite sad, so get the tissues at the ready.

Thanks, Eurogamer.
