Fitness app Zombies, Run gets board game treatment on Kickstarter

The popular fitness app Zombies, Run is lurching into the board game territory thanks to the launch of a new Kickstarter project.

Developed by Six to Start and Naomi Alderman, the game is inspired by the app that rose to fame by offering fitness freaks the chance to immerse themselves in a zombie escape adventure.

The running app challenges players to help save their community by pounding the pavement all the way into the zombie-infested wilds.

The stay-at-home tabletop version of the game has now been brought to the crowdfunding where it has already secured £39,543 of its £50,000 target with 28 days still remaining on the Kickstarter platform.

The Zombies, Run board game will challenge teams of two to four players with the same mission, while incorporating a real-time, audio-driven adventure as they rescue survivors, uncover secrets and find a cure.

The game will also use the Zombies, Run app to power the game with audio clips to up the ante throughout the gameplay.
