Grim T. Livingstone is ready to harvest some souls. The alpha version of Ambient Studios’ latest game is playable now.
After a run with Kickstarter, Ambient Studios is releasing their real-time-strategy + god game + business simulation for the masses to take a run through. Players will take on the role of Grim T. Livingstone in his quest to be the world’s greatest reaper and the bubonic plague in a colourful version of 1660’s England. While the alpha version is currently available, the finished product will be released in November 2013. Paying $10 (or more) here will give you access to both the alpha and the finished game.
I could tell you about how fun the game looks or about how Ambient Studios was founded by developers who worked on LittleBigPlanet, Criterion and Fable, but lets be honest, all you ever wanted is to unleash the plague in colourful paint.
Death Inc. will be released in November for Windows PC
