Rebuild 3: Gangs of Deadsville is a strategy sim game with a good helping of narrative and dark humor. It's a thoughtful game that'll make you fond of your survivors before you send them to their deaths for the greater good. As you expand your fort to new buildings, you'll decide between farms or fortifications, housing or hospitals, and make tough decisions to fend off raiders, illness, starvation, and madness. And the dead are still out there wandering the streets, hungrier than ever.


Gangs of Deadsville is the third of my (Sarah Northway's) Rebuild series, and the first one available as a full PC downloadable. It's a totally new, much bigger game than the first two. In many ways Rebuild 1 (Flash) and 2 (Flash + mobile) were prototypes for this game. Rebuild 3 was written entirely while traveling. We are nomadic game developers and worked on Rebuild 3 in over a dozen countries!


  • 4X style strategy and city (re)building
