Death Inc: Ambient’s Jonny Hopper on bringing colour to the plague

PC Gamer - Ambient Studios are something of a Guildford development supergroup. Founded in 2011, the team is comprised of former members of Media Molecule, Lionhead and Criterion. Their first game, Death Inc. – currently seeking Kickstarter funding – is a part strategy and part management sim about spreading plague in 17th century England. It’s main character is Grim T. Livingstone, formerly an Assistant Underreaper at the Ministry of Mortality. Fed up with with the Ministry’s soulless methods of collecting souls, he breaks out and starts the eponymous Death Inc. In a sense, he’s also gone indie. (Ambient Studios, Death Inc., Jonny Hopper, PC)
