We funded the game on Kickstarter, and gained almost five times the funding we requested, which was our first sign we might have a hit on our hands. Since then we've regularly topped the rankings in iPhone Health and Fitness apps, we've been featured on NPR, in the New York Times, on Channel 4 News, and we've been shortlisted for five Develop awards.
I'm the co-creator and lead writer. In early April 2011, Adrian Hon the CEO of Six to Start (and all-round visionary, check out his History of the Future) and I sat down to talk about finally working on a project together. He's a keen runner, and had been thinking of making a running app to make running fun, and something where you wouldn't have to look at the screen while running - I brought up the idea of being chased by zombies and the concept was born.
Since we funded in October 2011, I've written 30 missions for Season 1 of the game, and various other exciting add-ons we still have in the works. It's been an amazing journey and I have a feeling the zombies will be taking up my time for a while yet.
