4 comments by Rico21745 on Sep 5th, 2013

So it's been far too long since an update, but I promise there are good reasons.

Like for example did I mention that we have been GREENLIT by Steam? No? Oh sorry. 

Greenlit!

Much <3 to everyone who voted for us and believes in the project. We really are working hard to make Rebirth the game you all believe it will be, and since we're doing it all in our spare time, what really keeps us going every day is the motivation you give us through all your amazing support. Trust me, your feedback does not go unnoticed! We're extremely proud to be among the small group of games approved by Steam and we're super stoked to be able to release Rebirth when it's done to as many distribution platforms as possible!

The second little update I have for you today is actually the reason for this post. Our 2nd development diary is up. It details what I call "Procedural Level Generation 2.0" which is a huge improvement over what was shown in the first dev diary. This is the technology that will power some of the levels in the game, as well as allow us to create dynamic levels that change each time you play.

I want you to watch it. Watch it now! Think of it as a long overdue reward for your awesome support! 

Oh and maybe you guys will catch a glimpse of something... odd... in it?

From what I can tell, the game looks awesome. :D You wouldn't happened to have taken some inspiration from the STALKER series would you? I couldn't but have a mini joygasm when i first saw the pictures of this on greenlight (which i did vote for).

I loved the atmosphere and the STALKER universe, so you betcha.

Thanks for the support. Life is a bit crazy since I'm moving, but I'll try to produce some new media and a new post this week to put up here. I've done a lot, but when you work on things every day, you lose track of progress!

Hello Rico i want to start off saying that my english grammar may not be so good okay i want to suggest some stuff and hope you will add it. I'm not sure if this is already added okay here my list come

1: switch from third and first person
2: you should find cans of food or some water in houses and warehouses etc
3: i don't want to take stuff from arma 2 dayZ but maybe you could add tents so you could place a tent in the forest.
4: maybe add a lantern or some sort of torch
5: add weapons in houses, schools. Warehouses
6: add zombies in every city some in the forest. So you may not camp and take a break, keep moving.

Hey Moe, I think you'll be happy to hear:

1) Added based on community feedback

2) Food and water will be spawned based on the location, yup.

3) No tents, I'm going with a full blown building system, but its one of the features that will be added last to the alpha.

4) Done. I have a lamp you can atatch to any of your gear slots. It can be turned on or off. It will consume batteries (next on my list after I finish moving this weekend)

5) Weapons will also be scattered throughout the level. They will be somewhat rare, with melee weapons being more common.

6) Zombies will not be the only enemy type. Also, enemies will be around in all kinds of areas of the world, not just cities and such.
