I wrote this game while travelling in Europe and Central America, and created everything but the music myself. It's not your usual point and shoot zombie game; Rebuild is a thoughtful, wordy game that takes real strategy to win. You need to balance acquiring food, expanding your base, killing zombies and keeping your people happy. Gamers should start on Hard difficulty and expect to lose their first game (it's more fun that way).


Finally beaten it!

Finally beaten it, man, took a while, still a great game, really fun, but it's a bit glitchy with the amount of food and people because sometimes when I lose a person or something it stays as the number of people I had before. I'm just pointing that out, it's still an awesome game. My town that I have shut the zombie portal down on is called "The world of Z". Lol. But yeah, great game, you should make a sequel maybe.

good game

however, why is it not a playable shoot-out during a horde attack/raids/etc...?

Truly entertaining

Now this is game! Even though the graphics weren't the best, but that didn't ruin the fun to play it. Not too much and not too less people to hire for tasks and it's well observable even at the end. Also liked that there was more than one way of winning the game, I still kept playing until everything was cleared! Defenitly one of my favourites now.
Just one thing, after I started
researching the Cure-Zombieism-Gene
the recruiting-menu started behaving weird. Other than before, I didn't even needed to select a person to reclaim areas or for other tasks. Also the busy people were listed on top and in between the whole list of avaiable people, making it more difficult to select the ones you want. Maybe you could fix just that. Overall a 10/10.

Pretty Cool Game

The game was pretty cool I gotta say. Never was really dull and the fact I got to day 137 and was still trying to fight for survival shows that it's a good game.


That was 2 hours of epicness

Hard was a pretty mean bitch at first, but it gets easier.
Still beating Harder, that is one motherf***er.

Oh right, I need to post something constructive.
GAMEPLAY: 9/10. Thoroughly enjoyed all 2 hours of the first playthrough. The best turn-based I've played in a while. You could have made it longer though, by allowing us to rid of the Zed in other towns. The other endings added replayability to the game.

MUSIC: 9/10. Authentically creepy and eerie. Very fitting for this genre. It does get very repetitive though...

ART: 9/10. I thought it was pretty interesting art style. Then I realised all the buildings were the same looking when it came to one type. A varied palette of colours would have been very interesting indeed. The buildings look very bland once you are done reclaiming the town.

OVERALL: 9/10. A very fantastic game, to say the least. Well done! Hope you will make similar games, or other improvements.
