Comms Shack

Based off the game Zombies, Run! by Six to Start and Naomi Alderman

Zombies, Run! Story Background:

Fitness audio story app created by Six to Start and Naomi Alderman. 

I've been a long time fan of the series, about a group of various characters from a settlement called Abel Township after the zombie outbreak.  The Communication Shack environment is home to the radio operator and most heard voice in the player's (Runner 5) earphones, Sam Yao. He's an energetic, loyal, nerdy and disorganized type of character and I wanted to make sure I portrayed his personality within the space.


The app story line gives you lots of little insights into the characters likes, dislikes and personality so it wasn't a matter of "what do I put in" for the piece, but more "what do I have time to create". I also had the help of the fans to make sure I had a nice list of objects to put in, and sneaking in as many Easter eggs as possible for my fellow Runner 5's, which was a big hit when I showed the finished environment to

the developers and fans.
