Death Inc. maker Ambient Studios to close


UK studio folds after Kickstarter failure

Death Inc. was an offbeat and charming-looking strategy game that was announced as being one of the recent titles to graduate from Steam's Greenlight service. When the Kickstarter campaign to fund the title only raised just under half its goal, Ambient launched a paid-alpha program but it appears that wasn't enough to save the studio.
