Have you wished Rebuild 3 was harder? Easier? Wished children aged at a realistic rate or more new survivors were soldiers? Have you wished Rebuild 3 was written in your native language, or just want to rename Gustav to “Mr Mustachio”?
Well now you can have it all, with only a little work on your part (note: full language packs are actually a LOT of work, mail me if you want to get in on a team effort for one).
I’ve added proper Steam Workshop mod support in version 1.5, so you can create mods and share them with others. You can now change all the system, difficulty and game configuration settings (including ones like GOAT_YEAR, finally – I know how that one has been bugging you).

You’ll be able to get Rebuild 3 on your iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets this coming Thursday September 3rd. Even if I catch the PAX Pox this year, I’ll drag myself to my laptop and make sure this game gets released!
Yes I’m at PAX right now, for my 9th year in a row. We don’t have a booth this year, but I’m helping show my friend Tim’s game Antihero in the Minibooth. It’s a strategic multiplayer game where you fight for control of the crime underworld in quaint little Dickensian towns. I’m planning to do all my salesman patter in a Victorian accent. “Fancy a spot o’ larceny mate?”.
On Saturday I’ll be pitting my artistic skills against actual professionals including Mr Krahulik himself, in a cutthroat winner-takes all Virtual Reality Art-Off in Tiltbrush for the HTC Vive.
…actually they tell me it’ll be more of a fun demonstration of this neat 3-d painting tool. Anyway come watch me doodle at the nVidia booth at 2pm on Saturday!
Fantastic Contraption VR
And if you haven’t heard yet, Northway Games’ next game will be a bit of a departure. It’s Fantastic Contraption for the HTC Vive, a room-sized VR rig where you can walk around and build things with your own two hands. It’s truly spectacular future-tech and I’m incredibly lucky to be a part of it. I’ve got loads of other game ideas brewing, but VR is one wild ride I don’t want to miss. I’ve been waiting for this since I was 10 years old.
We’re showing Fantastic Contraption off at the HTC Vive PAX booth this weekend so come over to the Sheraton to try it out.
