Ambient Studios, an indie developer whose members have worked on projects like LittleBigPlanet, Fable and Burnout, have today announced their first project, Death Inc., a streamlined strategy game where you guide Grim T. Livingstone, a freelance reaper, through 1660’s England spreading fear, pestilence and most importantly, the bubonic plague.

Death Inc. is about infecting as many peasants, serfs, wenches and even noblemen as you can. And of course, it’s about leading your pestilential horde to defeat the forces of Good, build your business empire and strive to become the greatest reaper the world has ever endured.

To raise funds to complete the development of Death Inc., a Kickstarter project is being launched on 4th February.
