I hear it works fairly well for a game in alpha stage so I might pick it up soon too. It will probably receive a proper release in a few months seeing how fast they update and how long they work on the game.

"The game also sold 88,000 units in the first 12 hours." So it sold another 85k in the 2nd 12 hours?

Isn't this the company that tried to rip ppl off ?

No, that was WarZ, which was a rip-off of DayZ. They just quickly released their game, so that they would have it before the stand-alone version of DayZ.
