Run For Your Lives, a game of flag tag set in the world of a zombie apocalypse will be making its return to Malaysia this December 31st at Taman Botani Putrajaya. Drawing from its beginnings in the United States back in 2011, the game has attracted over 12,000 participants since its debut and has spread to other cities worldwide which include Bangkok, Singapore and Hong Kong.
The premise behind the game is that a zombie apocalypse has plagued the world, caused by an unknown virus. Participants may choose to run as a ‘Survivor’ (human) or a Zombie. Gameplay is generally simple – the humans will have to outrun the zombies, who have the goal of ‘capturing’ the humans.
As with all high risk areas, the journey to the safe zone will not be easy. Other than zombies, there will be various obstacles to be overcome on that long road to safety, and three story modes to enhance the zombie apocalypse experience. Using technology and gamification, Run For Your Lives works towards its goal of making exercise fun, helping participants encounter a new experience while reaping the joys and benefits of getting active.
Obstacles are as follows:
- The Blood Pit: Survivors need to make their way through a pit filled with blood
- The Ladder: Survivors need to climb over a ladder to ditch the zombies
- The Crawl Fence: Survivors need to crawl under a long fence
- The Smoke House: A dark place filled with smoke and without any lighting
- Finish Area: Survivors need to crawl in order to make it to the Survivor area
Story modes are as follows:
- The Living Room: A living room filled with zombies
- The Slaves Vault: A place where zombies are caged and tied up
- The Slaughter House: A place where the dead (Survivor) and undead comes together
