Ambient Studios[]

Ambient Studios are a British based video game developer in Guildford that are made up of ex Media Molecule staff. They started a kickstarter for a strategy game Death Inc where you play as the grimm reaper and spread plague around medieval England but sadly the game did not reach the goal of money that they expected and Ambient Studios had to shut down. The art style for Death Inc looked very similar to concept art for the first LittleBigPlanet. Just before shutting down they did manage to release a moblile game on tablets named Monster Meltdown. Death Inc is still avalible on greenlight on steam but can not be bought anymore those that had paid before could of played the early alpha of Death Inc.
