Zombies, Run! is a running game/app that I heard about today while listening to the Drunk Tank and is possibly the coolest thing that I’ve ever heard about.
You tie your shoes, put on your headphones, take your first few steps outside. You’ve barely covered a hundred yards when you hear them. They must be close.
You can hear every gutteral breath, every rattling groan - they’re everywhere. Zombies. There’s only one thing you can do: 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.
It doesn’t matter where you run.
It doesn’t matter how fast you run.
It doesn’t matter how far you run.
I plan on both donating and eventually buying this app. I really look forward to trying it out.
