Run For Your Lives! – will Malaysia survive the zombie apocalypse?

Zombie Run for your lives

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.

“We’re truly excited about bringing back Run For Your Lives to Malaysia. This unique experience promises participants a thrilling journey filled with different obstacles that will certainly get their adrenaline pumped up,” said Mr. Leong Delon, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Monkey Theory Sdn. Bhd.
