Running from zombies

The Run for Your Lives 5k is fun, letting you run a 5k through an obstacle course full of zombies, but what happens if you want to run away every day from zombies? It turns out there’s an app in development called Zombies, run! that will let you do just that:

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.

The game won’t be ready until May of next year, but this has the potential to be really, really cool. Now I’ll have an excuse for always looking over my shoulder for the undead.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
