ZombieLink under maintenance

Thusday 10am UK time: And we’re back online! Thanks for your patience, everyone.

ZombieLink is currently under maintenance, which means you won’t be able to log in. We know this is annoying, so we’re working on getting it back up and running as soon as possible. 

Don’t worry – all your user information and run logs haven’t disappeared, and there’s no need to reset your password! We’re working on a fix right now, and you’ll be able to get updates here.

ZombieLink Update

Update 3:30pm GMT: Service is now restored – you may sync and download missions to your zombie heart’s content!

Update 11:30am GMT: Content delivery is now fixed, so you can once again download missions. The rest of the functionality is incoming!

Unfortunately we’ve been informed that there’s a hardware issue with one of our critical servers at Linode, which means that it’s not currently not possible to log in to ZombieLink or download missions.

This is super annoying and we’re doing what we can to resolve it. We’ll post updates here as and when we have them. The good news is that we’re also in the process of rewriting ZombieLink for the release of ZR4 so it’ll be much more resilient in unexpected situations like this.

Welcome to ZombieLink 2.0

Zombies, Run! isn’t the only thing receiving a new look – we’ve also been working hard to improve and enhance our free ZombieLink service. Don’t worry, you won’t need to wait until the Spring to get your hands on ZombieLink 2.0 – it’s available right now!

ZombieLink 2.0 is a complete redesign and, we hope you agree, looks pretty stunning. We’ve laid out your run data in a much clearer format and the statisticians among you will be glad to see a dedicated stats page, which shows off your data in all sorts of varied graph forms.

Run maps are clearer, look prettier and have improved timeline views and the monthly run log lists on your profile page allow you to see how you’re improving month-on-month. Not only that but you can now also delete (not just hide) individual run logs – perfect for those accidental 3-minute long runs which wreak havoc with your stats.

We’re also happy to announce that we’re releasing another oft-requested feature for ZombieLink: You can now export your run data to your RunKeeper account, so users no longer need to have both apps running simultaneously! You can also export the data in GPX format, for plugging into other mapping software, like Google Earth. It’s your data, we want you to use it in whatever way you see fit!

ZombieLink 2.0 runs a lot faster in your browser and we’ve also made efforts to make it completely compatible with mobile browsers. It looks great and works perfectly on most tablet browsers. We’ve also made some important behind the scenes improvements that mean we can update and enhance the website far faster in the future.

This isn’t the end of our updates to ZombieLink. We have lots more planned as we approach the release of Zombies, Run! 2 in the Spring. In the meantime, be sure to let us know what you think of the new design!
