End of an era

ZKW-Reborn will be removed from the Play Store on June 5th.

Google has been looking for apps that use older development tools within them, that may cause the app to have some sort of an security issue, since 2016.

Until now, Google has only blocked these apps from being updated (if they haven't updated the development tools that had the security issue in the first place) but now, Google is actually starting to remove any apps from it's Play Store that still have the outdated development tools in use. Including ZKW-Reborn.

And you're saying you're too lazy to click that "update" button?
Unfortunately, there is basically nothing I can do to stop this from happening. The only thing that would prevent this, is to update ZKW in the Play Store, but that is quite simply too late for that. Since the game was made with a really old version of GameMaker Studio 1, bringing the game up to Studio 1.4, and then Studio 2 would be a-LOT of hassle in itself, but it'd also require a ton of other development tools to be updated, as well as (obviously) making sure everything worked as they should.
Even if I did this, I would also need to update every other platform the game is on (iOS, Windows, Mac) since it is a cross-platform multiplayer afterall, and updating only one version would cause serious issues within the game.
And, that's not even all there is. The server is also made in GameMaker, meaning that I'd need to update that as well.
All in all, all this would take me something like 6 months to make, which at this point is too late, since the removal will be happening in less than a month.

So, what happens next?
As far as I know, anyone who has previously installed ZKW-Reborn on their Android device, will still be able to re-download it, activate any in-app-purchases (such as Full Version) and play the game to it's fullest. With the exception of not being able to purchase any more ZKW-Points or anything else with real money within the game.

With that said, I will still keep the multiplayer servers up and running. Android version is still bringing in more money, than Steam and iOS combined, so I'm not too sure how long I'm going to be able to keep the servers up. But I'll try my best to keep them running as long as there are players around.

Me is anger !!1!
I'm sure I'm going to piss a-lot of you guys off, but trust me. I'm pissed as well. ZKW-Reborn was the first game I ever released with Still Running, and Android was the first platform I ever released a game to. ZKW-Reborn kept me alive for the longest time, and the community of the game has been super passionate, and I appreciate that.
ZKW-Reborn wouldn't exist without you guys.
Still Running wouldn't exist without you guys.

Thank you.
Hail ZKW-Reborn. Have fun while it still last's. Let's make this final month of ZKW-Reborn the biggest in years!

Morbid - Teaser


"When the world was young they emerged from the depths of our minds.
The Deep Ones—as we now know them—were born alongside our own consciousness.
When we first heard them whisper inside our heads, offering us great power and wisdom, we couldn’t resist."

is an R/T-rated isotopic soulslike, where you battle against the darkest parts of human psyche,
manifested as horrendous nightmarish monsters. The game will have dark stygian steampunk aestethics,
Lovecraftian horrors, and plenty of Cronenbergian gore.

You are a Striver of the Order of Dibrom, the last beacon of hope for humanity.
You have been purposely trained since your birth, to be sent out to the world, to take down the Deep Ones,
horrendous physical manifestations of the dark side of human psyche.
All fighters chosen before you have failed in their mission to destroy the Deep Ones.
One by one, they have fallen for their Highlords, whom have turned them into their foul servants

Want to see the game come true? Want to help us?
It's still the early days of the game, and we're not 100% sure yet if we'll be able to make the game.
It all depends on whether we get a funding for the project or not.

Help us make this game into reality, share the video to your friends, and let them know about the game!

About This Game

Zombie Kill of the Week - Reborn is a challenging, fast paced, 2D survival shooter! And when we say fast, we mean breakneck, flat-out, adrenaline fuelled fast! What’s different from the other shooters is your goal isn’t to run through levels and finish the game, but to survive for as long as possible under increasingly frantic conditions (we say as long as possible because ultimately you will die!).

Seems simple enough, but where Zombie Kill of the Week - Reborn really takes off is in the added layers of depth and huge variety of features and customisation available. Players earn money for slaughtering the zombies (money might not bring you happiness, but it does buy you guns!). We live in a consumer society after all, which is useful, as you can spend big on over 25 different weapons (including chainsaw, katana, mini-gun, RPG, D.O.M. and many others!). You also need cash to open doors, activate jumps, buy new weapons, or hunt for the magic fridge and see what loot drops are inside! In short… the longer you survive, the more weapons and prizes you get.

Surviving longer also gains you ZKW-Points which you can cash in to totally customize your character, customize your weapons, buy new weapons, buy different perks, open new maps, and a lot lot more! Players also earn XP as they play, allowing them to level-up their character and develop them to fit their chosen gameplay skills. Survival is all about the margins, and every little extra helps!

The Steam release also features an exclusive level editor for the Zombie Kill of the Week - Reborn community, which allows the community to create their own custom and bespoke maps, then share them with friends (and enemies) for everyone to enjoy. Endless permutations and maps means endless challenges.

With a compelling single player survival mode, as well as cooperative multiplayer for up-to four players, this is one zombie firefight you are not going to want to miss! If that wasn't enough you can even play cross-platform play with Android owners too!
