You can now play DayZ for free using a web browser … kind of. Mini DayZ, a fan-made tribute to Bohemia Interactive’s zombie apocalypse survival game, has been posted to the publisher’s website and is now free to play via Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Opera. It’s missing a few features – namely 3D graphics and multiplayer – but if you ever wondered to yourself, ‘What if we gave DayZ a top-down camera and retro graphics,” now is your chance to find out.

Mini DayZ is the work of CannedBits, a Russian player of Dean “Rocket” Hall’s DayZ (which, in case you need a history primer, is a standalone game that began life as a mod for Arma 2 and arguably boosted the multiplayer survival genre into prominence). In posting the news about the game’s availability via Bohemia to Reddit, CannedBits even caught the attention of Hall himself:

“I have to say, I absolutely love Mini DayZ,” Hall wrote. “I think it’s awesome, amazing, addictive, and brings something really new to the experience. I’m so glad you’ve been able to make it even better! Ignore the haters, the vast majority of people think it’s fantastic and I am one of those people.”
