Murder Drones is an Australian-American computer-animated science fiction comedy-horror web series created by Liam Vickers, produced by Glitch Productions and funded by Screen Australia for GLITCH. It is set to be the fourth animated series (third if not counting Ultra Jump Mania, which has only received a pilot) by Glitch Productions, after Meta Runner, Ultra Jump Mania and Sunset Paradise.

The series was teased on June 26th, 2021, and announced on October 8th, along with the release of a trailer. The pilot premiered on October 29th.

Synopsis

After humanity caused its own extinction by blowing up Copper 9's exoplanet core, causing a winter apocalypse, robots known as Worker Drones start to roam around until a group of Murder Drones start to murder them for... reasons.

Production

Liam Vickers had previously achieved notoriety for the 2D animated series CliffSide and Internecion Cube, both of which are unfinished. When he was picked up by Glitch Productions to be a showrunner, he had no experience in 3D animation, so the company would train him. The series would be created in Unreal Engine.

On August 6th, Liam released the full version of "Disassembly Required", the song that plays in the teaser. The video description reveals the character seen in the teaser to be "V", one of the titular Murder Drones.

By the time the series was announced, it had been worked on for one year.

Trivia

  • Unlike Meta Runner and Sunset Paradise, the show will last 8 episodes, including the pilot, and pushes into darker territory.[7]
  • AJ DiSpiritio has confirmed he will also do the soundtrack with Liam Vickers.[8]
  • This is the first GLITCH series to not be created by Luke or Kevin Lerdwichagul or any other Australian showrunner, instead being created by an American showrunner.
  • This is the first GLITCH series to not be headlined by an Australian voice actor or actress.
  • That humans are extinct or rare in the universe of Murder Drones has a similarity to the universe of Splatoon franchise by Nintendo. In Splatoon universe; there are no more humans, only the marine animal hybrids such as Inklings, Octolings, and other unnamed species.
  • This series was inspired from 20th Century Studios film franchise, Alien created by Dan O'Bannon and Ronald Shusett.
  • According to LiamVickersAnimation: "I like to imagine the drones stole their hair (and any unique clothing items) from the countless dead humans lying around after the mining disaster. Fashion, babeeyyyyyy!!". [9]
  • N was originally going to be the only drone with any clothes - stealing them from dead humans just cuz they looked neat. However, it became clear clothing could help differentiate all the drones while playing up their eerily human qualities. . . not that they get cold. [10][1]
