I know. It's yet another Kickstarter Project looking for funding for a game that is only operational on the mobile platform. Nonetheless, ZOMBIES, RUN! has a better excuse than most. As it stands, most desktop computers and laptops are incapable of charting your progress when you're out for a jog - never mind how difficult it would be to maintain a decent pace while clinging onto a ginormous CPU!
Jokes aside, ZOMBIES, RUN! is a pretty intriguing concept. You're Runner 5; one of the many people within a zombie-infested world that has been tasked to salvage food and supplies. In order to do so, you'll have to do what the game has been engineered to encourage: run. As you navigate through a variety of missions, you'll slowly unlock a larger story, one delivered through voice recordings and radio messages. On top of that, it looks like there's also a pseudo-resource management game in ZOMBIES, RUN! where you can choose how you might want the supplies you collect distributed.
