Damien McFerran: ''Death Inc. is a strategy title with a difference - instead of fighting for the forces of good, you take on the role of the Grim Reaper as he seeks to spread the bubonic plague in 1660's England and enhance his own grisly reputation.
The game is up on Kickstarter and has — at the time of writing — secured £21,924 of its £300,000 goal. It has 29 days left to earn the entire amount.
It's being developed by Ambient Studios, a UK-based team made up of former Media Molecule, Lionhead and Criterion staffers. Those of you in the know will be aware that Media Molecule is the company behind Sony's popular LittleBigPlanet series, while Lionhead created Fable and Criterion is famous for its Burnout franchise. That's quite a pedigree.''
