Dean Hall is a soldier, a game developer, and now apparently an elite mountain climber. The creator of popular zombie apocalypse mod DayZ
recently made it to the highest summit on planet Earth.
We just thought you'd like to know, because it's pretty impressive, plus he makes video games (and hey, it's Friday). Also, this is probably a good (if extreme) example of getting away from your desk, experiencing life, then perhaps applying that experience toward something creative.
Purely coincidentally, we have a nice interview with Hall
up on Gamasutra today, about making DayZ
Hall had revealed he would be taking on the climb about a month ago in the DayZ blog
