This was what birthed Battle Royale where he took the difficulty of the game a notch higher by making the maps in the game larger and more difficult to commit to memory. His modification of ArmA 2 mod DayZ: Battle Royale is today known as PUBG which threw him into the spotlight and wealth, an event that Greene did not think would happen.
