If you enjoyed Zombies, Run!, you’re going to love this one. And if you wanted to play Zombies, Run! but said to yourself “it’s not for me, I don’t run!”, you’ll love The Walk even more. Once again, we’ve mixed fitness tracking together with a gripping, immersive story and game in an unprecedented collaboration with the UK’s Department of Health and the NHS.
The Walk will track how much walking you do per day, like a pedometer, and we’ll set you daily goals to help you walk more every day and stay healthy. As you walk, you’ll unlock new parts of the story, which is told via fully voiced audio clips, much like Zombies, Run! The app runs in the background using our special battery saving tracking system and measures the number of steps and the distance travelled on any given day.
There’s a massive amount of content in The Walk — over three month’s worth! It’s an epic techno-thriller that puts you in the shoes of Walker, a mysterious hero tasked with delivering a mysterious package after an explosion at Inverness station disables the entire country’s electronics and transport infrastructure. You’ll need to walk the length of the UK in order to find out what’s going on and who you can trust. If you make it, maybe you can save the world…
We’ve previously announced that Zombies, Run! players will recognise many of the voices in The Walk. We’ve brought back a bunch of actors to play all new characters in this story, including Philip Nightingale (Sam Yao), Olga Leon (Archie), Jen Tan (Runner 4 and Nadia) and Victoria Grove (Paula).
The Walk is perfect for anyone wanting to keep healthy by being more active. You don’t have to be a fitness fanatic, the game adapts its goals to your fitness history. As reported by the BBC, just 150 minutes of weekly moderate physical activity could significantly improve your health. This could be the most important New Year’s Resolution you’ve ever made.
You can grab The Walk right now from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Usually the game will cost $4.99 (£2.99 / €4.49) but we’ve cut the price by 20% for launch to just $3.99! (£2.59 / €3.59). Be quick, though, this special price will only last for a week!
