Death Inc. lives on as Ambient Studios releases paid alpha

Innovative title from Little Big Planet, Fable and Burnout creators plots new route to market.

Death Inc.

Death Inc., Ambient Studios’s new god-stroke-strategy-stroke-action game, has today risen from the grave and is now available to pre-purchase from $10.

The full game will be available in November 2013 for £14.99 ($19.99) but players who want to support the title’s development can pledge their support now. Those playing the alpha will gain a unique insight into the game’s development until launch, including access to special pre-purchase-only development builds, secret forums and other assorted goodies.

Boasting a wonderfully quirky art style, and genuine laugh-out-loud play mechanics, Death Inc. places players in the shoes of Grim T. Livingstone, freelance reaper, as he wanders through 1660’s England spreading fear, pestilence and most importantly, the bubonic plague.

Death Inc. is an arcade strategy game, a unique mix of real-time strategy, god game and business simulation. Paint your orders into the land and unleash your infected minions on serfs, wenches and noblemen. Use harvested souls to build your business empire and strive to become the greatest reaper the world has ever endured.

[quote by=”Jonny Hopper, Director, Ambient Studios”]We were overwhelmed by the support we received during our recent Kickstarter campaign. Despite the fact we didn’t reach our initial target, we did raise support of over £122,000 – that’s a tremendous amount of support which has given us the confidence to push on.

Doing it ourselves has also given us the freedom to give more back to the community. Players who pre-purchase the game now will be able to join us on this incredible journey as Death Inc. helping us shape it into the game we know will be enjoyed by the world over. The tiered nature of Kickstarter meant it made sense for us to limit alpha access to players who pledged $40 or more; now everyone who supports us will get immediate access to the game through until the final version later this year.[/quote]

Death Inc. can be pre-purchased now from Players who pre-purchase the game will gain immediate access to the alpha and all subsequent builds through to the final game. A full list of other benefits is available on the website.
