Today Ambient Studios, best known for their action strategy game Death Inc. has announced via Facebook that as a result of a lack of funding they will be closing their doors.

Unfortunately, what this means for Death Inc. is development has now ceased and it’s now a very real possibility the game has received the axe for good. Fortunately, for alpha backers Ambient Studios has also announced that backers will be receiving their money back.

This news comes just over a week after the game had been Green-lit via the Steam Greenlight program, and just under two weeks prior to the alpha being made available.

For those unfamiliar with the project, Death Inc. was a real-time strategy game where the player steps into Death’s shoes to spread death across the world. Once the basics are completed players, were to eventually move up in scale eventually causing entire cities to come crumbling down.
