It's finally happened... the zombie outbreak is HERE and the zombies are on the move. Your only hope for survival is to get active and outrun them!
THE OUTBREAK is a team-based activity game where your real-world steps and exercise allow you to stay ahead of a hungry horde of zombies that's chasing you through the remnants of your city.
Each week of the 6-week challenge, you and your team will race to a new safe house, trying to stay ahead of other teams and the zombie horde. But stay on your toes, the zombies who are chasing you aren't the only zombies you'll run into.
Obstacles and pockets of zombies line your path to each safe house, and you'll have to be strategic about spending your steps (earned by walking/running in real-life) and Power (earned by exercising in real-life) or saving them for an opportune moment.
You'll start the challenge as a human, but if you fail to stay ahead of the zombie horde you risk turning into a zombie yourself... at which point your steps and exercise help the zombies move faster and do more damage. Will you survive, or will you make sure no one else does?

Ratings and Reviews
A decent idea but has a long way to go. You have weekly events with the goal of getting to a safe house. Unfortunately, it is not difficult for your team to reach the safe house in only 2 or 3 days and then you just sit and wait until the following Sunday to be able to leave the safe house. You still upload your steps but it is nothing more than a simple Fitbit type tracker at that point. Also, the website says a minimum of a 3 person team, but they allow 2 person teams. When asked about this, they stated that 2 person teams get a penalty; however, this does not actually occur (you can see all team individual steps). I imagine they will fix this simple programming glitch in the future.
BEWARE!!! This is garbage!!!
Teams aren’t equal, people cheat and this game is not accurate. The app needs serious work!! It’s “funny” to see coworker who supposedly walk 50,000 steps before lunch on Monday, their team reaches the safe house and then they walk less than 10k steps the rest of the week?!?!? It’s a JOKE!!! You’re not helping companies promote wellness... you’re leaving too much room for cheaters, which makes all the honest humans give up. We had someone in our organization put in 50,000 steps before 7 am on Monday morning... ummmm... not possible!!!! FYI - 50k steps is 25 miles!! Nobody runs or walks 25 miles between 12 and 7 am on Monday mornings!!! Unless they are marathon trained... PERIOD!!! Beware of this shady challenge... it’s not based on wellness or team building!! It’s just an easy way for losers to cheat, and build their own self esteem!!!
Coolest thing my company has done for employees
My company has done the outbreak twice. Wasn’t sure about the zombies at first but they’re cute and our whole floor got really into it. Lots of trash talk lol My team formed a morning walking group before work and we’re still doing it even though the challenge ended. Hope we do another one!
