Do you remember Rule #1 of Zombieland? That’s right; Cardio: “Zombies lead a very active lifestyle. So should you.” And to help you get up off your couch and actually start preparing for the inevitable zombie apocalypse, allow me to present Zombies, Run!
Zombies, Run! is an ultra-immersive game for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android where you help rebuild civilisation after a zombie apocalypse. By going out and running in the real world, you can collect medicine, ammo, batteries, and spare parts that you can use to build up and expand your base – all while getting orders, clues, and story through your headphones.
Originally presented as an idea on the fundraising website Kickstarter, the game has surpassed its goal by more than $60,000! Needless to say that creators Six To Start have finally launched an official website and blog to track progress of the game as it nears completion.
But don’t worry, you can still support the development by visiting their online store to purchase posters, t-shirts and even pre-order the game. Meanwhile, i’m gonna’ go sit on the couch and drink a beer. What can i say? I’m resigned to the fact that i’ll be one of the first to die. And i’m okay with that.
