The Last Post

Posted by Ambient Studios (Creator)

Dear friends, backers, supporters and well-wishers,

There are a handful of hours left on the clock but I think we can all see the outcome. What a ride it has been. But it's OK! Together we've taken an exciting, gruelling, and enlightening journey over the last month. We've created and released a tonne of content (including a demo and a house!) and received loads of useful feedback. We wouldn't change that for the world.

Importantly, we would like to assure you all that you haven't seen the last of Death Inc! We are working extremely hard to make this beautiful, bonkers, original game a reality for you all.

So finally, please keep in touch! There are so many ways: 

We'd love to hear from you and take the next steps of our journey together.

 All the best, 

- the Ambient team

      Good luck to you, I really wish you'll find a way to make this project (or any other) come true. :)

      Such a shame, no idea how this fantastic concept, with a team that could obviously deliver, could not get backed. If you're going to make the game anyway you could go for the 'minecraft' model? I'd be more than happy to pre-buy it.

    3. Rik Spruitenburg on

      What a great positive way to look at things. Good luck to you.

      I am very sad. The game idea is just great. And even playing the demo makes a lot of fun. The look is awesome. You've convinced me.

      I hope you manages to release the game ... i want to have it.
      I wait for news...

    5. Amir on

      This is really sad but thanks for your mail letting us know that you will still make this game! I can't wait to see the final game and I am 100 % that you guys will succeed! Keep your heads up and make this game!

    6. Jack Devereaux on

      Ah bugger. This sucks! You guys did everything right here, demos, great art and really fun, easy to pick up gameplay. If you guys ever try again, I'll be back!!!

    7. KevinP on

      Sorry about the kickstarter not funding. I do wish you all the best. I am more than happy to find you via a paypal pledge. Best wishes.

      I am sorry. But hey, you guys got a great amount there. I would still love to back Death Inc regardless of the outcome of this campaign. If you guys have a Paypal account or do an IndieGoGo, I would love to pledge to you again, 100 times more if necessary, as I am sure my friends down there would too.
      You guys brought an incredible idea to light, and please, continue with it, and let us help you along that way!

      My £45 are yours forever <3

    10. bagheadinc on

      Quick, somebody pledge £180,000!

    11. Jonny Paylor on

      Wow, such a shame, I can't believe it! Seriously, you did everything right! Great looking game, original concept, fantastic artwork, self-publishing, plenty of detail/updates, reasonably priced, a playable demo! I really don't understand it... perhaps it is just a matter of bad timing? Maybe the Kickstarter bubble is starting to burst! Whatever happens, let it be known that you still have our support and we really want to see this game through. Wish you all the best and look forward to hopefully hearing more on the project in future.

    12. Erik Edstam on

      This is a sad moment indeed; I'm looking forward to seeing the game somewhere again in the future. Keep at it!

      Maybe games like dreamfall and torment just had a large base to begin with, I spose it's hard getting the word out about games like this.

      This game seemed like it would be a lot of fun in the gameplay and in the way the world looks.

      I'll do my best to keep up with the status of this game. I know I'll be buying it.

      I hope we will have news soon !

    15. Andrew Gautron on

      Even though it wasnt backed, I wish you guys luck in fulfilling this game! I will look out for news! :D

      Can I still have the t-shirt with the crazy knife-wielding mustachioed gentleman with a pot on his head?

      It is indeed a shame that the 300,000 goal won't be met, I was very much looking forward to playing the alpha and discussing it on the forums. Either way I'm glad you're still going to continue development. =]

    18. Shane Schrupp on

      Glad to hear that you'll keep working on this one!

    19. Kiawi on

      I'm really sorry that it didn't work out for you guys. I hope you'll give it another shot once in a while. Would have been really interesting to see the end result. :)

    20. Paul Downs on

      I'll echo what Clare Wright said, you could see from the updates how much passion you had for this project. Oh I do hope that beautiful house finds a loving home! :D Looking forward to what the future brings for you guys and Death Inc. I'm sure we haven't heard the last of Grim T. Livingstone.

    21. Christian Meyer on

      I'm so disappointed! I so badly wanted a customized deck of cards and a boxed copy of the game. I hope this will still end up being an option down the road.

    22. Clare Wright on

      So sorry for you guys. It was a beautiful, imaginative, funny campaign and its easy to see how much you'd put in to it. I'm gutted that the goal wasn't met and I'll definitely be watching out for the reincarnation :) keep us informed please!

    23. Blake on

      It's a shame, but good luck to you folks. Here's hoping you make this game a reality in the future.

    24. Adrian Bonet on

      Please keep us updated of the progress... somehow.

    25. David on

      I wish you luck in all future endeavours! I really hope this game will end up on the market anyhow, and I'm excited by all the features you've displayed of the game! I've liked your page on Facebook so I'll hear if things get rolling again for our favourite Grim Reaper.

      Thanks for a great Kickstarter, keep on being great!

    26. Yourtime on

      to be honest, i am really sad about that end.. after finally playing the demo on the browser it was much fun.. hope the game comes still up and maybe with another try..

      Sad times! Well I really hope to see the game made in the future because I'll definitely buy it then!

    28. treehouseartist | Dream Traveller on

      This is sad. The concept seemed interesting, and I thought the art style was really fresh (no trace of rigor mortis there). I hope you'll keep us updated on the future of Death Inc.

      We're all going to die. I'm surprised not more people on Kickstarter were willing to come to terms with the realities of life.

      RIP until you Reap!

    29. Benjamin Fox on

      I only discovered Death Inc. through an obscure comment on Reddit. If you have another bash at crowdfunding it might be worth using Reddit more?

      Gutted :-( You guys deserved better.

    31. Frogsbane on

      Sad that a great idea which was well pitched and presented and really didn't ask for a comparatively huge amount of money had to fail. I thought at first that Kickstarter was just going through a bit of a dry period, what with this and Project Awakened failing to get funded on the same day but then Torment: Tides of Numenera goes and makes more than either project needed in just a few hours. I'm disappointed and a little confused as to why such a promising project didn't get funded. Good luck in the future guys, I hope your vision can be realised one day.

    32. Eoghann MacLeod on

      It's always disappointing to see such a promising Kickstarter end without getting the funding it needs, especially when it's clear how much passion and effort has gone into the drive. I'll be keeping a close eye on the game and I'll be contributing in whatever way I can.

    33. Aaron Scott Kroh on

      So close... If we all bumped our pledges by £46 we could make it!

    34. Richard Moss on

      Disappointing! Hopefully you'll either try again or find another route, I shall keep an eye on your twitter feed with fingers crossed!

      And so the peasants live on yet another borrowed day.

    36. Kirk Chen on

      i want to keep up with what you guys do in the future. i will miss your updates, and i hope we get to see this game developed eventually. good luck!

    37. Brooks P. Weaver on

      I'll just say it...this stinks. But hey, whatever doesn't fund your Kickstarter makes you stronger. :)

      This game and team are too awesome to just go away!!

      So wherever and whenever Death, Inc. resurfaces, I will 'definitely' be a supporter.

    38. andrew cook on

      Such a shame. I hope you guys manage to get this off the ground even if not on Kickstarter.

    39. Westy on

      I even tried to get in touch with Sir Terry to get him to back the project, but alas, he didn't get back to me :(

    40. Westy on


      Chin up boys, I'm sure you'll get there in the end, by hook or by crook!
      Looking forward to playing, so keep on coding!

    41. William C Crawford on

      Really sad that you guys didn't make it. This is clearly one of the more innovative game ideas I've seen lately.

    42. Jon Shafer on

      Thanks guys, and good luck moving forward. Really excited by the concept, and I can't wait to see it fully realized one day!

      - Jon

    43. Ed Lago on

      It´s a bit sad to see interesting projects like this don´t get founded in kickstarter but I wish all the best things for you guys and I really hope this is not the last time we are going to heard about Death Inc. I played the demo and enjoyed a lot all the road about this game. Good luck with the future guys. Cheers

    44. Onery on

      It's been a bit of a rollarcoaster ride following Death Inc on Kickstarter. While it is sad that you guys didn't get funded, take heart that you've many supporters regardless and it's great to hear that you've not given up on Death Inc. It's quite an interesting and unique take on the genre and it's also fun to boot! Maybe you drop by Kickstarter again to try for funding in the future? :) whatever the case, good luck! Will be keeping up ish :)

    45. Mark Hogben on

      I'm bitterly disappointed ;;__;; But if you provide other means of funding, I'll support you guys :-)

    46. bagheadinc on

      Tis a shame things didn't work on on KickStarter. Any plans to relaunch the campaign here or over on IndieGoGo?
