mine: zombies run

@zombiesrungame, @runnerthefifth

I don’t think I’ve ever posted this here, but here’s a fan art inspired by the app Zombies, Run! 


Part podcast, part running app (where yes, you get chased by zombies) it’s something that I really enjoy listening to. It’s at the same time scary, humorous and thrilling, with a really cool storyline and extremely likeable characters!


And yes Runner Five is carrying a sports bra.

collected a sports bra

i was thinking about this, and idk if anyone else talked about it, but i think that this is pretty significant. because like, if you have breasts, and you’ve exercised, well, you know what i mean. it sucks, its the worst, it makes exercise something that is not spontaneous at all. i mean, i can run on bad and old trainers, in jeans and dressed as a banana, but i can’t run without a sports bra. 

so the fact that the creators put this in, and that it has basically become a running gag (pun intended) in the fandom just makes me happy, because it’s just one thing that’s so essential but so often overlooked.

You got freckles on your shoulder, ammunition like a soldier
And visions, ambitions to be the best

Oh and Jenny why don’t we, Jenny why don’t we be getting together
I said Jenny shouldn’t we, Jenny shouldn’t we be getting together


I haven’t drawn ZR art in a very, very long time but I still love Janine very, very much

Zombies, Run! chronological mission order

Have you ever wondered where the side missions fit into the season two story line? Or where all the supply missions, race missions, airdrops, etc. fit in? @abelrunners and I did, so we looked into it and finally composed this list. Last updated after the Spring VR 2017. We haven’t included the Audible production, “The Way Of All Flesh” (but it would fit in between Spring VR 2016 and S1M1).

Hope this’ll be helpful! :)

  • Mass Effect Andromeda: Introduces "Simulated Adaptive Matrix" aka SAM, linked to you (sees what you see), supports you from the ark with situational awareness/problem solving, "There's a very specific relationship there. It's more of a partner than EDI was. You're way closer emotionally to SAM."
  • Internet: Speculation is SAM is a reanimation of your mother, or designed by your mother, which would make it like a sibling, so it's unlikely to be a romance option. Even outside of that, I don't imagine much interest for an AI that is not yet confirmed to eventually gain a body or-
  • Me: [grabs them by the shoulders, wild-eyed] Listen. I have been playing Zombies, Run! for four years. Please just let me have this.

please consider Runner Five with avoidant personality disorder:

  • one negative interaction at Mullins and it’s “well I’ve officially Ruined Everything here, time to move on” and the simplest way to do that is signing up for Project Greenshoot
  • it was never about the super secret spy mission, it was just a convenient way to Avoid
  • the rocket launcher hits, they crash land, and before Maxine even has a chance to say “we might not be able to let you in UNLESS,” they’re already thinking, okay, how can I Contribute
  • the doctor says her line and Five doesn’t even blink, like of course my welcome is conditional, I wouldn’t expect anything else
  • “hi, I’m inherently worthless, but here, I brought you every sports bra I found on the way here, please let me stay”
  • feeling like they don’t actually belong anywhere, they just remain with whoever Tolerates them the longest
  • until Abel Township
  • they’re not even through the gates and Sam Yao is already telling them to come home
  • for the first time, they’re running to someone instead of running away

You know, looking back on the first mission is kinda funny now, because at some point maxine says something like : “ if you dont bring us this thing, we probably wont let you in and you’ll get eaten alive”
And at the time thats a scary thougt but now its hilarious.
Sure. Maxine Meyers and Sam Yao are gonna watch someone die when they could help them, also fire is cold and the sun is blue
