Ambient Studios, developer of Death, Inc., a game about the bubonic plague that recently became part of Steam Greenlight after missing its Kickstarter funding goal, has closed, according to a post published today on the company's official website.
The cash-strapped developer, whose Death, Inc. missed its Kickstarter funding goal in early March, was unable to stay in business, the post reveals.
"It's time for a sad announcement: Ambient is shutting its doors," the post reads. "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."
Last week, Valve announced the sixth set of Steam Greenlight games, among them Death, Inc., which was currently in alpha. According to today's post, the developer will provide "full refunds" to the alpha backers "so you will not be in any way out of pocket."
