Even though gamification has become a buzzwords of sorts, not always in the best ways, I always like a well executed idea to gamify something.
Which is why I like the Zombies, Run! app so much. It helps you run. Because, after all, you have a horde of zombies on your heels:
You tie your shoes, put on your headphones, take your first steps outside. You’ve barely covered 100 yards when you hear them. They must be close. You can hear every guttural breath, every rattling groan - they’re everywhere. Zombies. There’s only one thing you can do: Run!
Executed as an iOS or Android app and delivered over your headphones, it storifies your run, turning the experience of just running into an adventure, into something meaningful.
Something for my list of things to try out. [found thanks to ᔥHymnos]
