Six to Start's latest app is another pedometer for people who need more motivation to get off the couch. Similar to the team's previous game, Zombies, Run!, The Walk is an immersive experience that pits players in the midst of a suspenseful storyline - but rather than tap and swipe at the screen to make progress, you must get on your feet and move. It hopes to change your next walk around town into an adventure you will never forget.

The game begins with a bomb exploding in Inverness station and you being handed a package that could save the world. What follows is a story containing over 800 minutes of audio spread across 51 episodes and hundreds of miles. The Walk will have you travel the length of the UK before it's over, evading the police and secret agents. Depending on where in the world you live, that might sound like a far less escapist experience than fleeing from zombies, but hey, some of us are just plain tired of the undead.

If you loved Zombies, Run! and want a more updated experience and new environment, The Walk may just be worth a look. It's available below for $3.99, a 20% discount to celebrate its launch. So what are you waiting for? Get moving!

    Thanks, picked up both this and the zombies, run! app (it is currently on sale for 50% off). I need to get more active and maybe this will help out.

    I had trouble reading the article title.

    Maybe you could use apostrophe? Or Something next time?

    • xnadax

      Or stop capitalizing every word so it's easier to spot the actual app titles and company names.

        great idea! AP listen to us :)

      Out of curiosity: Where do you think an apostrophe should go that would avoid confusion?

        For example:

          That's a quotation mark, not an apostrophe.
          Quotation mark: "
          Apostrophe: '

    Winter seems like a rough time to release something like this. I do far less walking Dec - March than I do at any other time of the year.

      Well, unless you're one of the lucky ones that live in Florida or SoCal.
