What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Rekindling has been in the works for over three years now, and for us it is a whole lot of fun. However we want to be able to craft this game with the community in mind. All feedback and suggestions will be carefully considered and if we like them, added to the game!

Before Steam Rekindling has just been worked on and looked at by mostly a single person. That gives us a good core to build from but the only way to make it to the next step is to get community feedback.

We plan to be constantly updating Rekindling with your feedback and helping it to make a great game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Rekindling will stay in early access until we feel the game is more feature complete. We want to get the full game out to you guys as soon as possible in a fully enjoyable form. Expect some time in early 2020 for a more complete game and possible transition from early access.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of Rekindling will have more depth in survivor interaction and new ways to play the game, such as allowing you to control individual survivors and living out their lives in the colony that you have built. We also want to add a scenario mode where you have to manage an existing colony and fix whatever problems it may of had.

Planed features

Here are some features that we would like to add to the game before the full release
  • Full research tree for unlocking new items for your survivors
  • More dynamic survivor interactions. Such as dealing with outsiders and distrust/love between existing survivors
  • Tons of more items and objects
  • A mission driven scenario mode where you have a colony already and have to solve its problems
  • Steam Workshop custom items&buildings
  • Control mode where you can become a survivor and do actions directly controlling them as them
  • More sandbox and free build options such as picking the starting world settings
  • More Biomes and environmental differences such as Tundras, swamps and grand forests
  • More ZIM variants EX: a large slow ZIM that destroys buildings.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All content visible on this page is currently in the game and will be updated as new content is added. There will be some bugs and hiccups with the current version but as it currently stands it is pretty stable. Please refer to the planed features section below to see some of what we have planned for the future.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price as new content becomes available until the full release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We want the community involved as much as possible, for those who know us, know that we take community suggestions very seriously. We Absolutely love community involvement and feedback and will try our hardest to read and respond to everything posted! That ranges from feature suggestions such as "having mechs for my survivors would be super cool because..." to bugs and minor annoyances.

Bring all your ideas to the Steam forums here and on our official discord server. We are extremely excited to hear from you guys and realize the full potential of Rekindling.”

About This Game

The ZTD virus has taken over and turned the majority of the population in Zims. Zims are mindless creatures that will stop at nothing to find and devour human flesh. You find yourself in charge of a colony of survivors trying to rebuild society.

Rekindling is a survivor management game where you must task your survivors with building up a sustainable settlement. Command your survivors to build, farm, mine and fight.

Harvest the land

Randomly generated worlds each time you play across multiple different biomes. You must collect nearby scraps, rocks and trees to prepare for the Zim attacks that happen each night!

Build your settlement

Over 50 unique items to build and create in order to enhance your settlement.

infinite possibilities

The Survivors are all randomly generated with goals, likes, skills and bad habits.

Avoid death

The Zims like the dark and will come out to attack each night! Make sure you are ready to fight back the hordes.
