The folks behind the best narrative fitness game are producing an audio-driven board game set in the Zombies, Run! universe, Zombies, Run! The Board Game. Board games and running are two of my most vital hobbies, and I’m excited to see a running experience move into the board game space.
The game presents a real-time narrative on a phone or tablet that compliments a fairly simple card game mechanic and uses a dry-erase map. It promises to be immersive and incredibly fun if it carries on even some small bit of the magic of the Zombies, Run! app.
Prepare your 2-4 player team for a frantic, real-time sprint across a zombie-infested landscape! Rescue survivors, uncover secrets, and (hopefully!) find a cure.
With our app, you’ll hear zombies approaching as you work together to escape them. You’ll hear the voices of survivors and make snap decisions about who to trust – and who to stab in the back for a few first aid kits. But beware: they’ll remember this!
You can start playing in seconds – and embark on a journey that’s as quick as 30 minutes, or as epic as 30 hours.
Living, Persistent World: Your decisions really matter, because the app remembers your choices. Whether you befriend or betray someone, it’ll have consequences. The world changes even without your input, as zombie hordes roam across the map, settlements rise and fall, and the end of humanity moves ever closer.
Environmental Puzzles: While searching for vital supplies, your radio picks up a garbled transmission. A voice cries out for help, lost in the wilderness. The only landmarks are smoke to the north and the sound of water to the south-east. Can you triangulate their position and find them before it’s too late?
Audio Adventure: Board games are about having fun with your friends, not staring at screens! That’s why we keep your eyes off the app, and instead we fill your room with fantastic award-winning audio.
Expandable: Our game can sustain multiple playthroughs, thanks to its branching storyline and massive open world. As with Zombies, Run!, our app gives us the ability to to add new stories, new characters, new zombies, and new maps in the future!
