What's this, I've been working for hours on only one cup of coffee? Brb, gotta do something about that ☕

Check out my interactive map with Chernarus accurately overlayed onto the real region it is based on! 🗺️

Chernarus from the Arma/DayZ games is based on a real place in Czechia 🇨🇿 Here's a few pics I took when I visited, with screenshots for comparison.

Monochrome dithering was also used more recently in the adventure game Return of the Obra Dinn (same guy who made Papers Please) giving it a unique atmosphere

Ever wondered how those old school monochrome images were made? This blog post is a very nice introduction to the subject with code examples and comparison of methods

It's a very pleasant area well worth a visit even if you don't care about the game. If you're staying overnight I can highly recommend the hotel-brewery Na Rychtě - A hotel which makes their own beer and has an amazing restaurant, what more could you ask for? 🍻

Of course you can also just go old-school with a paper map 🗺️
Here's the Green Mountain (Radešín)

Or the famous red barn in Stary Sobor (Lipová). It used to be filled with holes like the game variant, but seems to have been fixed today
