After much blood, sweat and tears, you can play this game on an iPad 2 now, with exclusive bonus content to boot. $2.99 in the <a href=" .com/us/app/rebuild/id478 523928?ls=1&mt=8m&partner Id=30&s=143455&siteID=YJr 1Q3EGDzk-HTD63wsG_VXnUfZW f0xYHg">iTunes App Store</a>.

The sequel to my first game Rebuild! There are new buildings, plotlines, characters, customizable survivors with skills and equipment, new & improved art and hidden endings to find.

I took a crapload of suggestions from Newgrounds and other sites to improve on every little part of the original game. It was a lot of work, but I feel like this game is the Rebuild that was meant to be. I hope you agree!

Great Game

First off, fantastic game. Really nails that feel of trying to rebuild society. If I had one criticism it would be that the music could become grating after a while, but you can turn it off so that's not really a problem.

Things you might want to tool around with or keep in mind when making the next one... which you should.

Introduce a new resource. I'm going to call it valuables. It basically encompasses things that retain their value after the collapse of society. Gold, jewelery, maybe mechanical stuff, gasoline, just pool it in a general category.

Why would you use this? Well, set up a trading post or two and you can buy and seel food or hire people with it. Just saying.

New buildings and research. You've got to add more. After a while it becomes hard to find new ways to spice up the buildings. Also, put caps on the amount of food and valuables you can have at one time. Just allow warehouses to be useful as they are.

Still, new buildings might include anything from libraries to post-apocalyptic houses of pleasure. Also add special structures. Kind of like wonders of the post-apocalyptic world. A new Colosseum where men and women fight zombies for sport or feedom.

Next point. Government. I see it in three distinct categories:

Government: Democracy, Despotism, Monarchy. Each could have benefits and drawbacks. Despotism, people eat only half as much food but can only be 50% happy. Monarchy you build the wonders faster and get more for your valuables but some survivors may refuse to work on grounds of being nobles.

The next thing would be kind of a Policy. These would give bonuses on certain things and drawbacks too.

Matriarchy, have to have a female ruler, plus one for everything for every female in your survivor pool, but men can only reach skill level five.

Patriarchy: Opposite of matriarchy

Theocracy: You get plus one for every resource for every church controlled, but people might leave because of strict religious oppression.

Hedonism: Plus one for every bar (or other luxury place if ever included) but work takes longer.

The third element would be Doctrine. This would be the kind of society you set out to build.


People could mix and match these elements to create fairly unique societies.
Also you might want eventually have your people find other cities (The don't have to be on the map) and you can go to war or trade with them for people and supplies.

Also, I could see having smaller factions take up square in the map and trying to hold out against you. You could diplomacy or fight them into joining.

I think it's time to step up Rebuild's game. It's not enough to survive anymore people have got to be able to thrive and forge new civilizations for themselves whatever that may be. Still, awesome game.

What a...

great game! The graphics are a lot better than the first and I like the fact that you give each character a personality. It would be cool if you could offer more things to do with the useless buildings. Maybe bigger farms, more activity based buildings so soldiers can gain different atributes or work on current strengths and maybe a bigger grid to play on. Just some ideas I'm throwing out there and you don't have to use them. Thanks for an awesome game, keep up the great work.

My first 5 star game!

I love the game - Rebuild 2 takes some concepts from Civ and some from RPG games, and combines them beautifully in one game :)
All ages can enjoy this game although the theme may deter some parents..

One of the 5 endings ("The One") reminds me of the following joke :
How many Microsoft programmers do you need to replace a lightbulb?
None, they just have to decide that the new standard is darkness.. (zombieness in this case).
