I was only saying last night how impressed I am with indie strategy title Death Inc.'s art design, so it's only fair tonight that I elaborate with this collection of works from Tim Holleyman, the art director at developers Ambient Studios.
Death Inc. is an upcoming strategy game where you play as Death. Not the badass one like you see in Darksiders. More like, the one who's running his business from the basement of his gran's house.
