We last checked in with Sarah Northway back in January when she was just starting to lay the groundwork for a new game in her Rebuild series of.. whatever Rebuild is. Post-zombie-apocalypse city-building survival horror adventure? If you’ve got a shorter/catchier moniker, let me know.
Northway was in touch today to let us know that she reckons Rebuild: Gangs of Deadsville should be done by early 2014, and she’s using the results of a player survey to guide her efforts. Like the last Rebuild game, the new title will be available for every conceivable platform: iOS, Android, PC/Mac downloadable, web browser, Chumby, Dreamcast, Babbage engine, and Blackberry.
The sui generis Rebuild is one of my favourite mobile games and I broadly agree with the player survey’s insight that a new game would benefit from a touch more complexity and randomness.
A mockup of the in-development Gangs of Deadsville is after the jump.
