Most zombie games give you a gun, but *real* men don't use guns. Real men run marathons and use chainsaws! Zombie Run is a game about running away from your problems, scoring big and inevitably dying alone and unloved =P

Hey guys,

I've just released a multiplayer version of Zombie Run: it's now playable 1 or 2-player on the same keyboard. Unfortunately I'm living alone at the moment so there hasn't been much of an opportunity to test it with a friend. As such I really need some feedback on various things:

- do you capture enough inputs for two people on one keyboard?
- does the game run well with the large numbers of zombies?
- is the game balanced between single and multiplayer (score-wise)?
- should I keep the the penalty for killing your friend?
- should I keep the penalty for dying in multiplayer?
- should I change the resurrection mechanics? Dead player becomes a zombie?
- do you like the way the score is pooled at the end, or would you rather each have your own?

Thanks in advance, and have fun playing cooperatively - I know a lot of people have asked for it =)

I'm going to grab some multiplayer footage at a friend's house shortly - he's got a powerful rig so it's likely to be long and HD. Huzzah XD
