About a month ago we covered Sarah Northway’s brand new Kickstarter Project by the name of Rebuild: Gangs of Deadsville. Last night it wrapped up its campaign, and we’re pleased to report it was a smashing success.
Rebuild: Gangs of Deadsville had a goal of $25,000 to bring the game to survival strategists around the world. Sarah and the gang managed to raise $41,440 (CAD) which means we’re getting the game along with some cool stretch goals. First up we have extra factions that came in when the campaign hit $35k. Gangs of Deadsville is getting not one, but three new factions with the 1337cREw, The Suf-fragettes, and the Pharmacists.
The $40,000 dollar stretch goal is up to the backers to decide on, and it comes down to having seasons in the game or relationships and children. Seasons & Weather will drastically change things as you won’t be able to farm in the winter, and things can get hairy when food runs low in a town full of hungry folks. Relationships & Children bring a different element to the game as your survivors will have a chance to fall in love and spawn new little survivors. If you’re thinking there’s no time for love in a Zombie Apocalypse, I’ll say just take a look at Glenn and Maggie from The Walking Dead… ‘Nuff said. Either way, a poll will be conducted soon, and it’s up to the backers which goal gets into the game.
The Rebuild: Gangs of Deadville campaign may be over, but you can still pre-order the game from the Official Rebuild Site for $10 if you missed the games funding run. Everything is still on track, and the game is expected to hit Windows, Macs, iOS, and Android in March of 2014.
