We met our goal! New stretch goals!
Not even halfway through the month and already we've done it, we made our goal! Thank you all so much, not just for your contributions but for your support and enthusiasm. Rebuild: Gangs of Deadsville is going to be so much greater because of it!
We're already on our way to the first stretch goal: three extra NPC factions to play against. I just added two more after that: Voice Acting for the major plot cutscenes, and Seasons for the added challenge of surviving the long winter.
Zombies slow down in the winter as their limbs freeze so they aren't as big a danger, though they'll be able to cross frozen rivers that used to protect you. Food will get scarce as the farms stop producing, so if you've been busy ants collecting food all year to last through winter, you might find some lazy grasshoppers come knocking on your door. Actually... grasshoppers aren't the best metaphor for some of these factions... they might be more like ravenous anteaters.
