Bugs will be squashed, even if it loses some personality in the process.

Sometimes bugs in a game can be fun. Personally, I love silly bugs, and I love it when I can’t tell if a glitch is a bug or a feature. Talking to Gamereactor, Day Z creator Dean Hall muses as to whether the standalone game will lose some of its personality as it increases it’s polish.
“That is a definite danger you know. There’s almost a humour that has developed around some of the bugs in it,” he said. “I saw a really funny Youtube video of the graphical glitches set to dubstep. And I couldn’t help but laugh as much as it pains me, because the graphical glitches just drive me completely crazy. But I had to laugh cause it was kind of funny. So you know there’s sort of something about that, but I think we need to tidy it up. It’s totally at the point now where people are just getting sick of a lot of the problems. I’m sick of the problems. So we have to fix those.”
