The Most Dangerous Cheerio

May 26th, 2013 by Crusader

Big Robot, an independent developer founded by Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s Jim Rossignol, is currently working on Sir, You Are Being Hunted, a first-person survival game with a unique premise:

Yes, Big Robot is going to make a game featuring robots. It’s called Sir, You Are Being Hunted, and it taps into a rich seam of tweed-loving British science fiction to conjure a sinister reality where artificial gentlemen hunt humans for sport.

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…)

The developers recently posted a gameplay preview set in a mountain biome:
