Zombies Run!

Fear based exercise motivation App that turns your mobile into a personal trainer

Sometimes motivation is the challenge with working out... with Zombies Run! you can harness all of your subconscious apocalyptic fears into one hell of a workout.

Currently available for Mac OS (and soon on Android) - Zombies Run! creates a virtual zombie-apocalypse to get your tail off the couch and onto the pavement. The story unfolds in front of you as you collect items along your way. Although "Zombie Chase" mode is set off by default (for safety reasons I'm sure), allowing the swarms sets another level to your workout. By using the GPS in your mobile phones, you're warned of the proximity of your attackers so you know when you need to dodge around a corner and speed up.

By collecting items as you progress you start to build up the supplies for your "homebase". By fortifying your fort, avoiding attacks, and outrunning pursuers the story unfolds in front of you. Assign a playlist for the background music (name the playlist - "zombie hits" for bonus cool points) - and strap your shoes on.

The Game

Just tie up your shoes, put on your headphones, take your first few steps outside. Within no time you'll start to hear the zombies closing in on you. They’re everywhere and the only way to create space is to start running ...Run!

The Premise

Using geolocation to track your distance, the story unfolds and it turns out your attempting to rebuild your homebase while fighting off zombie hordes. It's your responsibility to survive this zombie apocalypse.

Collect crucial items while on the run, notes, recordings, and more. Build your base and flea the zombies to advance your missions.

Zombies Run - VillageRunning Game / Adventure Zombies, Run! is an immersive running game for iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android. The story is delivered straight from your headphones.

Run Anywhere You Want Zombies, Run! works anywhere and at any speed. The geolocation is suited to the users speed. You can jog in a park, run along a beach, or even walk along a trail.

Keep the survivors alive You automatically collect items like medicine, batteries, and ammo while running - but when you're back home, who needs them more:? Which buildings need extra defenses? It’s up to you and the larger you make your base, the more missions you get to play.

Bring Your Own Music Choose your own custom playlists before you start running: the story unfolds in between your tracks through a series of dynamic radio messages. The radio even turns down for the messages (nice touch).

This app is another amazing concept courtesy of Kickstarter - check out the company Six to Start and if you have a sec give it a test ride - You won't regret it.
