Dear Rico and the development team for Rebirth,


Seriously, at this point with ZERO announcements since 2014 and nothing in the comments for the past 2 years, the future of this game is looking very bleak. Myself along with everyone who has shown interest in your product since it started years ago are assuming this game is dead. I honestly believe you guys have just stopped working on the game and have left everyone here in the dark. If you guys gave up on making the game, or whatever the case may be, you need to tell us. We deserve to know whats going on in the development proccess, even if there is no longer development happening.

wtf can you give us a hint??
Tiffany Aug 27, 2016 @ 7:20pm 
Remember when this game was still going to come out? Me neither.
DAG Aug 23, 2016 @ 7:01am 
So I take it this game is dead in the water? :-(

Things have been quiet for a while Rico - Any juicy updates for us? Cos i'm still looking forward to this potentially coming out
A Suicidal Banana Jun 16, 2016 @ 5:39pm 
seems like everythings been quiet for a while, I'm hoping that everything is going alright in terms of development??
Fr4mbo Jun 12, 2016 @ 5:23am

Thank you for the reply Rico.
Tiffany Jul 16, 2015 @ 9:55pm 
Will you give keys to major supporters. Because I have been commenting on this and watching it even though its been like a year since the last update
Rico  [author] Jul 16, 2015 @ 9:48pm 
@Hammy: We're looking to support Mac Win and Linux eventually. So yup!
Tall Smodger Jul 16, 2015 @ 8:07am 
@Rico: Will this be supported for Mac users?
Tiffany Jun 16, 2015 @ 5:40pm 
major supporters, because i could do a video of it
Tiffany Jun 16, 2015 @ 5:39pm 
No problem. Are you going to give beta keys to supporters?
Rico  [author] Jun 16, 2015 @ 1:59pm 
Oh? Sorry, I thought I'd gotten it. Thanks for pointing it out!
Tiffany Jun 16, 2015 @ 7:41am 
Right under the release date for the 2015 it says. estimated launch date 2014
Rico  [author] Jun 15, 2015 @ 10:49pm 
Zombie Kitteh: It's been fixed since people mentioned it in comments earlier.
Tiffany Jun 15, 2015 @ 12:44pm 
Estimated launch date: Spring 2014
Maybe you should fix that...

Awesome! Can't wait.

Scooter: If you thought that machete action was sweet, then you're in for a treat. I've gone all out on melee combat to make it engaging and interesting. This is not your average FPS melee. This is one of the things I want to show you guys soooooo badly. Soon!
Rhodesians never die May 17, 2015 @ 5:53pm 
Good to know. Could you show off some of that sweet machete action in a video soon? I want to see how that works.
Rico  [author] May 17, 2015 @ 5:52pm 
We'll have a roadmap up once we hit our internal dev milestone. On Trello, public to all, and likely so you guys will be able to vote on any new features we put up for dev (so you get to pick what we prioritize) . Don't hold me to that yet though, but that's what I'd like to do!
Rhodesians never die May 17, 2015 @ 5:41pm 
Nevermind Rico.
Rhodesians never die May 17, 2015 @ 5:40pm 
I'm very excited about this. Is there a roadmap anywhere?
Rico  [author] May 17, 2015 @ 5:37pm 
Scooter: Nah not at all, just wanted to clarify. A lot can get lost in text communication on the internet. My feeling is that I love all of our fans and I really don't want to disappoint any of you. We're trying our hardest to make a cool experience and also working very hard to make it worth every penny.

Also congrats on your first job! They can be time consuming, but at least when you're off, you get to focus on things you enjoy without too much worry. Family, friends, games, gamedev, whatever you want! :summersun:
Rhodesians never die May 17, 2015 @ 5:32pm 
If that was directed at me at all. I was not sarcastic when I said "Well said Rico." You explained it very well. Happened to get my first job a couple weeks ago. Finally saw what all the fuss is about.
Rico  [author] May 17, 2015 @ 5:24pm 
I do understand where you folks are coming from though, trust me. Nobody wants this game out more than we do. I'd recommend going ahead and subscribing to the mailing list on our site, which we only intent to use for big news, such as when we "reboot" our PR and media campaigns. We're sort of hoarding the info and media until we can show you just what the game has turned into in the time it's been in development. I think you will all like it though.

We've taken feedback from users and your ideas, and ran with it, along with our own concepts and ideas. There's a lot of "survival" games out there now, we started this long before the fad, and our game now will clearly stand above the crowd on its own. Have a little bit more faith folks, we really want to make you happy with the game!
Rhodesians never die May 17, 2015 @ 5:04pm 
Well said Rico.
Rico  [author] May 17, 2015 @ 4:48pm 

We're not a full time, we're adults with families and full time jobs to pay the bills. Sadly, that means that deadlines are hard to set since keeping the lights on tends to be top priority. Games take a long time to make, specially games of this kind. The initial deadline was set based on a requirement after being greenlit.

We did think it all through. The thought is: I don't want to release the game until I feel its ready. That goes for whether we do Early Access, or a full release. We want players to enjoy the game the minute it's released, not the "hope" that the game will be good.

My hope is that the community appreciates the fact that we're not after a cash grab. This is the game we want to make, and we're making it.
Nostalgic Dodo May 17, 2015 @ 3:56am 
Well you guys should remove the "Release date: Early 2015" because we have already passed early. And I have to ask since you guys have been working on the project for SO LONG. Is this going to be released as early access or full game? I know you are saying life issues and school takes a lot of your time, but you must have thought this through when you decided to make a game. And specially a game like this. Also making a deadline for yourselves. Something must have been thought through since you were able to set it to "Early 2015".
Rhodesians never die Apr 16, 2015 @ 2:39pm 
@Rico Glad to see your that type of developer. *stares at rockstar games shamefully* Hope to see this thing out soon. Looks rough on the videos as well as promising. Happy Coding! :cortex: :wrench: :cortex:
Rico  [author] Apr 15, 2015 @ 8:34pm 

Sadly, jobs and real life issues. Since we don't work on the game full time, it's a lot harder to nail down deadlines. Plus, we've changed a lot of core gameplay systems to make for a more interesting experience, so that also takes some time.

Trust me, there's nobody here that wants to see this out there than me. I gain nothing by holding it back from you all, but it would surely break my heart to release something I felt wasn't fun or worth people's money.

Sadly, all that stuff takes time and money, which are both limited for the team :-/ But we keep on going!
Rhodesians never die Apr 13, 2015 @ 4:48pm 
I support you in this game development. After all I have been in it since 2013 but what happened to "spring 2014"?
Dyrr Apr 4, 2015 @ 12:14pm 
@Rico, thanks for the update! Great to hear that the game wasn't shelved or abandoned like many other projects. I'm looking forward to see what the new updates were. :)
Rico  [author] Mar 27, 2015 @ 3:58pm 
Hey folks,

Sorry, I know updates have been non-existent for a long while now.

Mainly it's been a lot of work going on in the background. I added a ton of new features and did some gameplay iteration and changes to improve things I felt were already done in other games. As a result, I think Rebirth will be an interesting genre in the FPS genre but is has meant being quiet for a while since a lot of the work has been backend systems work that's not pretty or fun to show.

Media & PR efforts will be resuming soon. Hang tight please! Sorry for the wait!
🐻 Machines Within 🐻 Mar 14, 2015 @ 3:59am 
Is any thing moving with this game?
Nostalgic Dodo Mar 11, 2015 @ 9:41am 
How can itt be that there haven't been an update since 6. August 2014?
Tiffany Feb 16, 2015 @ 12:41pm 
If I had a free copy or something i could showcase it.
Right now my total monies is $3.37 sooo.....
Rico  [author] Feb 16, 2015 @ 12:05pm 

Since this is a labor of love project and self funded as well as developed by a very small team in our spare time, it takes time to develop the game to fit our vision.

I could have easily released some shoddy garbage to further fill up the Steam storefront and get some quick cash but instead, we're trying to build a game that we feel is worth people's money from the minute you support it, not years later (if it gets finished).

Just keep in mind if things are quiet, it doesn't mean work isn't being done. It usually means the opposite, I think people will be quite happy with how much the game has progressed since the last update, but I really want to hit some of our milestones before I start putting out new media and trying to draw attention again :-)

I do appreciate you keeping an eye on the game, trust me, I want this finished as much as you all do, since I want to play the finished product just as badly!
Tiffany Feb 14, 2015 @ 4:51pm 
Is this ever going to be released?
Nostalgic Dodo Jan 19, 2015 @ 6:00am 
These survivors you are helping / who have found your shelter. What can they do? I mean is it possible to play as them? Would it be possible to send them out on missions. Can we tell one of them to come with us and help us? Or are they just inside the shelter?
Kabe❗❗ Dec 6, 2014 @ 5:09pm 
Tiene muy buena pinta, buen trabajo ;)
Rico  [author] Nov 6, 2014 @ 8:51pm 
@Da Knight:

Thanks! Trying my best to make it great. I won't be happy with the game until I feel that I as a gamer, would love it too. I did start making it because I wanted to play such a game, after all :-D

I'm really looking forward to the time I can see you all playing it. Seriously, you have no idea!
Da Knight Nov 5, 2014 @ 4:29pm 

I Am A Horror/Survival Game Fanatic And I Will Definitly Enjoy This Game :demoticon:
Tall Smodger Sep 28, 2014 @ 12:16pm 
@Rico fantastic job i still cant keep my eyes off this game. Bravo.
