You tie your shoes, put on your headphones, take your first steps outside. You’ve barely covered 100 yards when you hear them. They must be close. You can hear every guttural breath, every rattling groan – they’re everywhere. Zombies. There’s only one thing you can do: Run!
According to the app “Zombies, Run! is an ultra-immersive running game and audio adventure, co-created with award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman. We deliver the story straight to your headphones through orders and voice recordings – and when you get back home, you use the supplies you’ve collected while running to build and grow your base.”
BBC NEWS – “The only way to save yourself is to run for real.”
WIRED – “In the style of Runkeeper, with an exciting undead twist.”
LIFEHACKER – “A really cool way to get outside and exercise.”
CNN – “Turns exercise into a game – a terrifying, terrifying game.”
NPR – “It gets you moving!”
TIME.COM – “Takes all the fun of a zombie game and funnels it into a fitness app.”
