Praise for the Spring 2017 Virtual Race

“Was extremely funny. Was extremely spooky, actually JUMPED while running at some point. Was VERY good.”

“Story writing and voice acting were phenomenal. The race package really helps to immerse in the story.”

“Loved the story – the training missions were great and the actual race was fabulous.”

“It was my first race & I loved it!! Great story and the sound effects were on point! No matter how many times I did it, I still jumped at that one part!!”

“Even after using ZR for more than a year, I am still impressed with the voice acting and audio quality. I especially enjoyed ‘the scare’ halfway through the race. The story is always engaging and there are days I stick to my fitness plan because Abel needs me, and I need to know what’s up with them. You guys rock!”

3 Days of Zombies, Starting Tomorrow!

Last week, we were thrilled to announce a special gift for our players: three new missions for Halloween! We won’t be charging for these missions, and – like The Simpsons ‘Treehouse of Horror’ they take place completely outside our usual timeline.

Horseplay is written by ZR-fan-turned-ZR-writer Andrea Klassen.

Wai chu xiao xin is written by ZR lead writer and co-creator Naomi Alderman.

And we’re especially delighted that Living Dead Girl has been guest-written by Hugo, Nebula and World Fantasy Award-nominated author Emma Bull. Emma’s been a fan of the game for a while and we’re huge fans of her work so it’s an honour to have her on the ZR team for some Halloween fun.

We hope you enjoy these missions – and remember, stay safe out there.

Free Halloween missions coming soon to Zombies, Run!


We wanted to do something a little bit special to celebrate Halloween this year, so we’ve created 3 free Halloween missions for Zombies, Run!

Because Zombies, Run! already contains a lot of zombies and other scary things, we had to think outside the box in order to come up with these new Halloween missions. As a result, they’re super daft and very fun.

You’ll notice that these missions are separate from the canon and, as a result, can be played by anyone regardless of where you are in the story. Think of them as the Treehouse of Horror of Zombies, Run! The… Sports Bra of Terror? Don’t worry, we’ll think up something catchier than that…

There are 3 Halloween missions in total and we will be releasing them, one a day, in the run-up Halloweek (see what we did there?). We’ll have more spooky info on these as we approach that ominous day, so keep scarily checking the blog. With fear.
