I had a good time watching illustrator Sara Gross bring Rebuild: Gangs of Deadsville characters to life last week. I know they're just concept art but I'm so thrilled, I want to use them as loading screens or something in the game.

People have been asking how I manage to write games while travelling. The key is we aren't really "travelling" in the sense of running around doing tourist stuff all day. We just move to another country every 2-3 months and live there like the locals do. We really are in a remote island in Panama right now, which is beautiful and wild and, well, kind of boring, so I'm working long hours and getting a lot done. Colin filmed a little walk around tour of the property we're staying on:

I've been gearing up for the Alpha test which starts next month. This first build will only be available to backers at the $15 level and above, so you've only got a few days left to secure your spot if you haven't already. I've finally got some of Adam's new buildings into the game and they're looking great!

      ruffio looks effing awesome. But nipple fist doesn't look like a cracked out biker like i thought the riffs would look like. Not that im complaining. I think its more interesting this way.

      I didn't expect the Riffs to look so... flambuoyant.

      @sgbeal I'm looking into a solution that would let you sync savegames between Android, iOS and Win/Mac. I'm using Adobe AIR so including native code for four different systems is kind of a pain in the butt when I could do it all with one codebase... but I might have to write it myself if nobody else has yet. :)

      i have a small feature request for R3, inspired by me having to do a factory reset on my tablet today (which will lose my Rebuild progress): the ability to export/import game state to/from cloud storage (Dropbox, GDrive, and friends). This doesn't require any cloud infrastructure on your end, and gives us the flexibility to move between devices. Note that i'm only thinking about Android here - i neither know nor care whether such an option is feasible on other OSes. Exporting on Android is trivial to do via Intents, but i have not yet coded any import support, so i'm not sure if fetching the remote copy is as easy. Anwyay... Happy Hacking!

      Glad we finally get to meet the faces behind the Gangs; something that always irked me in rebuild 2. look forward to the alpha next month, keep up the good work Sarah!
