It’s been said before, but needs to be said again: zombies have become vastly over used in games in the past few years. It’s easy to see why, they’re the perfect enemies. Everyone knows what they are and nobody will be offended at the idea of killing them. As handy as they are for developers, zombies can get monotonous for the players. Thankfully, there are games like Rebuild that try something new with those brain hungry shamblers. Created by Sarah Northway (wife to Colin Northway).
Rebuild is best described as a survival sim with sprinklings of defense and strategy themes. You won’t be put in the thick of battle… instead you’ll be managing the town, using your mouse to send survivors to do the dirty work. It’s after the Zombipocalypse and you’re in control of a small group of survivors trying to stay alive. At the beginning, you’ll get to name your town, your character and pick their gender. From there, it’s time to start surviving.
