ZRun Sprints Endlessly (and Exclusively) on PlayStation Vita this Summer

ZRun

Two of gaming’s most unstoppable forces, the endless runner genre and the zombie apocalypse motif, collide head on in ZRun, the PlayStation Vita zombie survival game with a twist.

In ZRun, players will guide a survivor as he non-stop sprints through a zombie infested cityscape, using the touchscreen, buttons, motion sensors or any preferred combination of the three to leap over or slide under obstacles, swipe blood off the screen, evade infected attackers, or slay them with firearms and melee weapons. The game will feature a full campaign, an endless survival mode, multiple playable characters with unique attacks, unlockable character upgrades and customizations, online scoreboards and “near” support for exchanging game goods with friends.

Indie studio Beatshapers is hurtling towards a summertime launch for ZRun exclusively on the Vita via PSN digital download. The early prototype footage shown is a bit rough, but even so ZRun looks like it’s off to a solid conceptual start. And the music kicks ass, thanks to composer Vladimir “MoozE” Frey.

My sleeper hit detector is already beginning to beep…
