SlingShot’s city-wide zombie chase game, 2.8 Hours Later, will be coming to Glasgow in March, the Bristol-based company has announced. It’s not a video game, but a physical game: players are given a map with locations and must find their way to each without running into any zombies. At each location, players meet a survivor who will tell them a story and point them to the next location.
The game lasts roughly 2.8 hours, and participants must purchase a ticket in order to attend. Tickets are now on sale for £28 per person and are available until 15th February from the game’s official website. The game concludes with a zombie disco, complete with bar, and participants are reminded that zombie gore may not be removable from clothing, so be advised if have little faith in your evasive skills.
“We’re really looking forward to Glasgow,” said SlingShot Director, Simon Johnson. “For a city of its size, it seems to have an extremely high number of zombie fans. It seemed like every other post on Facebook was someone crying out for us to take the game there! Glasgow also got a massive proportion of the votes in our poll – almost 6,000 in total.”
“That and the enthusiastic reception we received when we visited shows how passionate Glaswegian zombie fans are. Games like this just wouldn’t exist without the audience. The more excited the audience, the more exciting the game will be, so the Glasgow game will be awesome.”
The game will take place every night from 28th March to 31st March. You can find out more about the game, its other locations, and tickets on its official website here, or join the discussion on Facebook here.
