Special new Zombies, Run! T-shirt available for a limited time

We’ve have a very special new limited edition tee design for you in time for Christmas! This special tee is the first that we’ve made that features character artwork*, and it’s by awesome fan artist Kascha Sweeney.

On the front you’ll find Kascha’s designs of fan favourite characters including Radio Abel DJs Jack and Eugene being chased by zombies, while the back of the t-shirt depicts some of Abel Township’s most important residents. Can you guess who’s who?

This will make a perfect Christmas present for your friends, family, enemies, and all current and future Runner 5s out there!

Check out the Teespring page for more details, including sizing and colour info.  Be quick, though: this design will only be available until Sunday December 8th. After that, there’s no guarantee we will be offering this shirt again!

Merchandise clearance sale ongoing, new Christmas tee coming soon

We’re closing the old Zombies, Run! merchandise shop very soon – as soon as you guys buy all our stock from us, that is. There’s a very limited amount of t-shirts and posters still available with 70% off, so head on over and find yourselves a bargain.

Medium and large sizes are all gone, but there are some XL and XXL available in all colours in both men and women’s fits.

If you’re looking for new t-shirt designs, however, you won’t have long to wait because we’ll be releasing a special Christmas Zombies, Run! t-shirt soon – soon enough that you’ll have yours in hand to give to your favourite Runner 5 for Christmas. Or to keep for yourself! That’s also a perfectly valid option.

But don’t forget our main store which is still around and fully stocked with all sorts of goodies. And there’s still plenty of time to ship things all over the world before Christmas, so check it out!

Zombies, Run! 5k Training updated with iOS 7 support

Just a quick note to let you guys know that we’ve updated Zombies, Run! 5k Training on iPhone and iPod Touch. The update is available now and improves the look of the app. Much like the iOS 7 update we gave to Zombies, Run!

The update also squashes a bunch of bugs, including a crash which would occur if the screen was locked during gameplay. So if you’ve been having any trouble with Zombies, Run! 5k Training then hopefully this should put a stop to that. Just head on over to the App Store and check your updates tab to grab the new version.

Zombies, Write! community fan fiction challenge now complete


The second annual Zombies, Write! challenge is now over and has resulted in a huge amount of great new Zombies, Run! fan fiction. So if you’re itching for new stories set in the Zombies, Run! universe now that Season 2 has come to a close, you’ve a collection of wonderful short stories to sink your teeth into.

In case you’re unaware, Zombies, Write! is a community-run writing challenge where members of the fandom set story prompts for other writers. They then have to produce at least 1000 words of brand spanking new Zombies, Run! story based on that prompt. Such as “Runner 5 eats a poison berry and falls over a log, lol” or “Jack and Eugene kiss again”. Though, the actual prompts are much better than those…

It’s been run by Zombies, Run! fan writer (but also actual game writer) ThisCharmingAnd, and she has collected every new piece of fan fiction produced during the challenge together over at her blog. Be sure to check it out!

As ever, we’re astounded by the community’s creativity. Thank you for putting so much hard work into this challenge for a second year in a row. We’re humbled.
