Ex-Infinity Ward and now Robotoki president, Robert Bowling, has announced today that they are the first studio to commit to building a game exclusively for the android based console, OUYA.
The game will take the form of an episodic prequel that will provide important backstory for the eventual release of Human Element in 2015. Robotoki will be working with the OUYA team to bring an exclusive episodic look at the in game world as it develops and collapses over the course of the event.
In a recent interview with Game Informer, Bowling says the core objective behind Human Element is survival. “Their greatest strength is the fear that zombies instill in us, the survivors, that unreasonable fear. Unreasonable fear that leads us to do unreasonable things to survive,” he said.
The game’s character creation system allows players to choose between three different character classes, Action, Intelligence, and Stealth, and three different identities, Survive Alone, Survive with a Partner, and Survive with a Young Child.
Bowling himself is a firm believer in the OUYA console and has personally donated $10,000 to the Kickstarter.
Human Element is set for release on next generation consoles, PC, mobile, and tablets in 2015.
