Oh man, Zombies, Run! is SUCH a good workout app. It had figured out that I won’t run for my health, I won’t run for my weight, but I will run for the next episode.
It has singlehandedly turned me from someone who doesn’t work out to someone who runs 6 days a week.
I’m sure there will be more fanart on the way…
I just wish the authors could keep the political pandering out of the app. Why in the middle of a zombie apocalypse are none of the townspeople armed? Less quotes from and influenced by Karl Marx might be nice too. Not many characters I can identify with at all, probably the only independent survivalist is Jamie. The only relationships that attempt any form of real emotional attachment before Archie and Jamie were all homosexual. Does not detract from the brilliance of the games design otherwise it would not be worth playing to the 50 percent of the world that does not seem to be the script writers audience.
From a review of Zombies, Run!
[All those passive-aggressive ‘too bad about the gays, though’ emails the WTNV writers post got me wondering about what the ZR corollary might be. Pretty sure my search terms were just “zombies run gay.”
Related note — I’m not sure I’ve ever felt better about having worked with Six to Start.]
wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh too many non-token gays in my game wehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh i can’t relate to anyone as a heterosexual man wahhhhh weh weh weh wehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
This makes me so sad… I really thought no one disliked zombies run… But it was stupid of me. Of course some people hate gays hard enough to ruin the experience for them. Too bad for them!!!
Wow. I have to say, as your boring run-of-the-mill straight white woman in a straight white marriage, I was literally playing this game for MONTHS, we’re talking all of season one, part of season two, and back to season one again for a re-play, before I realized that all the canon characters in actual, established, ongoing relationships were gay. (Not that there are many - just Jack & Eugene and Maxine and Paula, right? I mean, we had Sam/Alice, but since she died before Episode 1 does it really count? And Simon/everyone, but I think that’s mostly fanon, and Lem/Nadia, but we didn’t really get much of them.) And I think I was mostly amused that it took me that long to notice.
That’s just… an odd thing to criticize. And the random slam on the one Karl Marx quote… okay, pal.
[damn I can’t remember who i reblogged this from, but the paragraph above isn’t mine. bloody xkit shortcut reblog mini window strikes again)
And what about Five and Sam? If that’s not emotional attachment, I don’t know what is.
But no, six same-sex attracted characters in a town of 600-odd is too many apparently.
So yesterday I was running through the bush listening to that Zombies Run app that feeds you the sound of moaning zombies closing in to make you run faster, and the terrain was wet and rocky so I had to watch the path really carefully. Which of course meant that I didn’t see the five foot kangaroo on the path until I damn near ploughed into the fucking thing. I finally looked up and there’s about thirty of them watching me like a weirdly adorable street gang.
Just so you know, kangaroos may not be aggressive, BUT THEY CAN FUCKING FIGHT BACK. WIth all the disembowelment and shit. Especially if you, I dunno, run straight into one like a wrecking ball.
And yes. I draw the weird shit in my life. What you gonna do??
Ahh, I can’t wait until the Zombies, Run! fan competition winners are announced so I can PLASTER MY WALLS with Z,R! art. For now though, I’ll have to be content entertaining myself with dorky stuff like this.
OMG this is so adorable! Can we get these made into stickers or badges or something? Seriously. :D

Jack and Eugene are ready for this shit.
Imagine your OTP building a pillow fort and cuddling together and falling asleep and they wake up to find the zombie apocalypse has happened and they are quickly devoured by the zombies staggering into their living room.
I’m pretty sure Trobed could build a zombie-proof blanket fort.
There wasn’t any other answer. Really.

Zombies, Run! updated!
(And maybe now zombie chases work on devices without a GPS, but it’s experimental. Anyway, yay!)
