Sir, You Are Being Hunted is an FPS currently in development from indie developer Big Robot in which British robots hunt humans in a fairly dystopian future.
From Big Robot’s site: “Hunted is set in a recognisably British landscape. Its inhabitants are a mockery of the aristocratic country gent and his ecosystem. Robots that ape tea-drinking, poachers that lurk in reed-beds, and red-eyed hounds that patrol the moor: these are the things you will be dealing with as you fight for survival. The game gathers up elements of my favourite things: exploration, AI interaction, survival, robots, hot drinks, and blends them into a rich pixelly pulp. (A “British indie S.T.A.L.K.E.R.” might have been something we said in the design meetings…)”
Yes, please. More like this. The idea alone has me buzzing with excitement, and with the current generation being awash in a sea of drab, uninspired shooters, Sir, You Are Being Hunted looks to deliver something combining the sense of humor of the Portal series with the intensity of Left 4 Dead. If only they could somehow nab Matt Berry or perhaps Richard Ayoade for a role as a ‘bot. Hey, it could happen.
