Learning To Survive The Zombie Apocolypse
I don’t know if you know this about me, but I am a little obsessed with Zombies.
And the Zombie Apocalypse.
Which I will be fully prepared for thanks to the lovely Vera Sweeney.
I do not… I can not… watch horror movies. Its a thing with me. When I was small, my Dad let me watch Carrie, Firestarter, Christine… to this day those cheesy old movies terrify me and I can not watch them – or anything newer and gorier.
Lets talk about The Walking Dead for a moment. Who saw that whole thing with Shane coming? Oh.my.god! I did not. And I have not been able to stop thinking about it since… just what would you do with all those zombies coming after you, like we left Rick and Carl.
What would you do?
Thanks to Zombies, Run!, a new app for your smartphone, you will have to wonder no more.
Zombies, Run! is an ultra-immersive running game for the iPhone, iPod Touch (and coming this spring, the Android), with a story delivered straight to your earbuds. You choose your own custom playlists before you start running, and the story unfolds in between your tracks …through a series of radio messages and voice recordings. (I’m getting scared already.)
Just who are you? You are: Runner 5. Hundreds of lives are counting on you. You’ve got to help your base rebuild from the ruins of civilization by collecting critical supplies while avoiding roving zombie hordes. Can you save them and learn the truth about the zombie apocalypse?
I am addicted already. As someone who has trouble getting motivated to keep working out and trying to get in shape, I just have this feeling that Zombies, Run! will be just the thing I need. A feature coming soon to Zombies, Run! will record the distance, time, pace and calories burned on your runs. What’s more awesome than that? Instant feedback as to what you accomplished.
And if (who am I kidding) when – the Zombie Apocalypse hits your neighborhood, you will have had enough practice that you should know just where you can go – and where you should avoid.
Zombies, Run! is currently available for $7.99 from the iTunes App Store.
I for one can’t wait for it to hit the Android! I’ll be the girl on the run.
