    Death Inc. Bullfrog/ambient games kickstarter. + demo

    Hey people just found this game on kickstarter.

    The game is a dungeon keeper style game based around the 17th century black death period. You play as the grim reaper, and your mission is to kill local populations by spreading the plague in order to meet your death quota.

    And boy does it look fun, and pretty!

    After reading the full page and the FAQ's there is also some good news for Mac/Linux people. The game will have a mac client from the start, and a linux unity client as well :D:D

    I put a link to it on my desktop. If it gets closer to the end and doesn't get funded, I'll probably put some money on it.

    I see very little of Dungeon Keeper in it but it still looks fun.

    I think the dungeon keeper in it will be mainly the dry humour. Once the high priority good guys start arriving at the scene and the narrator kicks in I think the DK element will shine.


    There is also the element of total perversion. After watching there own play through of one of the levels where they admit to having to have tried new things several times, I think that will give players the chance to use the most perverse mechanics to make the game even more fun. Those pigeon bombs, and norovirus food options look like an endless source of amusement for me.

    I pledged 10 GBP. There isn't much time left on it and only 1/3 backed. :(

    There's only 6 hours left and it isn't even half way to the goal. It looks certain to fail. :(

    You can now buy into the alpha for as low as $10 and get the final game when it officially launches for free.
