We have got some sad news. It seems like Ambient Studios is shutting down.
Ambient Studios was responsible for the game; Monster Meltdown. Furthermore, they were currently working on Death Inc., a death simulation strategy game. Firstly, they had hoped to fund their game through Kickstarter. However, that failed last month when they failed to reach the funding target of $300,000. They only managed to secure around $120,000.
After that, they tried to fund development by offering a $10 paid alpha of the game on their website. Evidently, that wasn’t enough either. If you were one of the alpha backers for Death Inc. fear not you will be getting a full refund soon by Ambient Studios.
They made the sad announcement over on their official website:
It’s time for a sad announcement: Ambient is shutting its doors. It’s been an amazing ride and we’ve produced some amazing products like Monster Meltdown and Death Inc. We’re super proud of what we achieved, but ultimately we didn’t manage to make enough money to keep the wolves from the door. And so we had to make the difficult decision that it is no longer feasible for Ambient to continue operating.
It was a genuine shock to see Ambient Studios shutting down. They posted regular updates regarding Death Inc. on their website.
