      Gina: We're certainly designing it to work on treadmills with the accelerometer!

      FYI everyone - you won't actually be running around this base or anything - as we've mentioned, the game basically works wherever, whenever, and in whichever direction you run, so it's not really location-based (even though it does track your location for stats). We might add stuff like that in the future, but not at the moment!

      Hospital or 'Training Area': Winter's coming and I'll be stuck on the treadmill. I'm very excited about this app/program and would like to have the option of using it on a treadmill you see that as a possibility? Maybe, some kind of rehab for hurt survivers or training area for recon crews...?

      Quarantine - Can't just let the new arrivals into general population right off

      JeEtude3: Well, the extra locations are just spaces for future buildings and content (more to be revealed in time...). But you will be able to customise your music on different runs, if that's what you mean?

      I'm a huge music fan. Is there a way for music to customizable in the Extra Room? Like, to have a swanky Jukebox inside for specific runs and what not. And i can't wait to donate my zombie noise, my friends practice things like this every now and again. :) Can't wait for this!

      Ringmaster: Good question. We were actually thinking that most people would want to just do a groan or a moan but if you have a better idea, you should definitely do it! We will be opening up the phone lines/recordings for the zombies soon, but it's actually relatively easy for us to mix this stuff in later (the Season 1 audio we mentioned is basically the story stuff).

      VondeVon: Yep, plenty more room for later!

      When will backers at the ZOMBIE level be able to record their audio for the game, and what will this consist of if you've "almost finished recording our first big chunk of the Season 1 audio"? Hopefully not just boring grunts and moans -- that would be pretty disappointing.

      I like the extra rooms - allows later updates to include interesting things!
      A trophy room for the runner who has everything they *need* but nothing they *want*. :D
      Water source? Does the quad include a growing area for food?

      I'm a huge fan of customisation - it may seem silly in a Zombie apocalypse, but the option to pimp my home base out would be nice.

      Hi Oliver,

      At the moment we don't have running training goals in Zombies, Run! Right now we're just focused on getting the core game produced and then we can think about what additional features people would like (and we may introduce these on the mobile app, on the web interface, or both).

      Cheers, Six to Start

      I was just wondering if there is a description of what the gameplay will look like in terms of integrating the running component. I would like to see how the gameplay incorporates running training goals like interval training, hills, fartlek, speed work, etc, so that in addition to playing a fun game you're also achieving your training goals. For example if you're training in for a particular distance you have you're weekly running schedule and it would be nice if something like that could be accommodated in the game play.
