Zombies Run! Kickstarter-funded mobile game about running

Adrian from Six to Start sez, "We just launched a Kickstarter project for a new running game called 'Zombies, Run!' we're developing for iOS and Android. In the game, you help rebuild civilisation after a zombie apocalypse by going out and running in the real world. As you run, you can collect medicine, ammo, batteries, and spare parts that you can use to build up and expand your base - all while getting orders, clues, and story through your headphones. We've already raised over 60% of the funds from over 200 backers, so we're pretty sure it's going to happen now, but we have some super-neat rewards like people being able to contribute their best zombie-groan to the game, and also becoming one of the RUNNERS."

No Escape: Portal fan-film

"No Escape" is an addition to the growing canon of high-production-value short fanfilms inspired by Portal/Portal II. Though simpler in plot than "Beyond Aperture," it's nevertheless a pretty pulse-pounding bit of entertainment, and unmistakably affectionate toward the original source.
