Sir, You Are Being Hunted – Generative English Landscape and Tea-Drinking Robots

Latest game in development from Big Robot is this english landscape inspired robot featured - Sir, You Are Being Hunted – game. It’s creator Jim Rossignol describes it as a “a mixture of rich seam of tweed-loving British science fiction to conjure a sinister reality where artificial gentlemen hunt humans for sport”. 

Hunted includes procedurally generated world where robots hunt each other – and you:

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 game is currently in development but you can find latest information on the development blog. There are also a number of very interesting articles from the team related to game development using Unity, for example On Structuring Things In Unity.
