The final countdown

Posted by Sarah Northway (Creator)

Happy Halloween! There's only 6 hours to go and still a few chances left to BE A ZOMBIE or get your very-own face in Rebuild: Gangs of Deadsville.

Sorry about that... it's been a long month. Thank you so much each and every backer for all your support. Now the next time I'm deep in the Rebuild code, pulling my hair out and trying to chase down some bug or fix a super frustrating bit of code (today it was the fog that obscures unscouted buildings), I can just look at my backers list and remember why I'm doing this. :D

Hey... we just reached $40k! That means I'll add the second stretch goal: either Relationships & Kids, or Seasons. Both sound cool to me so I'll be happy with whatever you choose. Once the campaign ends I'll send out a survey to all backers where you'll be able to vote on it, and I'll get your name and address and other stuff for the rewards.

If we manage to make it to $45k before the clock strikes midnight (somewhere, anyway), there is one more stretch goal to go: voice acting! Once you see the story me & Stephen are cooking up for the Gangs of Deadsville campaign mode, you're going to wish we had a narrator to go with it. There's still time to make it this a Halloween miracle!

      If we're gonna be throwing in names for Youtuber's voices I'm gonna say Markiplier. He's shown he can act in collabs with Cyndago, has an interest in voice acting and has a pretty epic voice.

      Voice acting would be cool. I think Wil Wheaton might be available ;-)

      You Doubt TB? He Pulled off the American 40s Gangster (see Awesomenauts) he can do anything. also that was just who she wanted to hire. as a narrator it can be anyone, the only reason not to use TB is because too many other Post apocalyptic games use the gruff grizzled man voice

      I'm not sure how well Totalbiscuit could pull of "female Ron Perlman"...

      If we choose one option over the other, does that mean the other option will not be available in the future? I'm asking since it looked like you took down the extra stretch goal to facilitate the option polling, which kind of puts pressure. Personally speaking, I like both options and it's kind of hard to settle for one if it means the other will never be implemented.

      about the voice acting: Any youtuber (maybe even the famous ones) will narrate the game for you if you give them 1 free copy and mention their channel at some point (credits maybe?), because, who doesn't wants more views and a free game?

      try getting totalbiscuit to narrate, he did for space pirates and zombies, maybe you can get him to narrate for you :P

      I really think that we should be able to disable/enable seasons or relationships,because that would make everyone happy. (some people don't want these features)

      A tip for future video posts: the video cannot be viewed in Germany because it has background music "which GEMA has not granted the respective rights for."

      GEMA is nothing more than a sanctioned crime syndicate. They need to be represented by a "red-shirt" character in Rebuild :/.

      well if we don't reach the goal you could do domething like Space pirates and zombies or Dwarfs?! get some youtuber to do the voice acting for game key after launch (Psst I hear TotalBiscuit has experience narrating zombie games)
