50 gamechangers: Sir, You Are Being Hunted
Sir, You Are Being Hunted
Developer: Big Robot
It’s hard to not get curious when the first image you see represents a robot in a tweed jacket och top hat with a rifle in its hands. It doesn’t get easier when it’s developed by Jim Rossignol (whom you may know as a critic for Rock, Paper, Shotgun) claims that Sir, You Are Being Hunted can be compared to a British indie version of Stalker.

From what we understand the title pretty much says it all. You are stuck in what looks like the British countryside with nothing but the clothes you’re wearing and your direct mission is to survive. Oh, and Sir, You Are Being Hunted by robots with rifles. From what we’ve seen your ability to defend yourself is limited to whatever you can scavenge and build. So treat it like a survival horror title, not a robot shooter. And as the website says: “Choose how you escape from the islands: using violence, or using trickery and stealth.”.
If you can’t wait to try out this experience and see how well you’d fair against your pursuers the game is available in alpha and Steam Early Access. How long until we see a full release is not yet clear, but we can’t wait to get our hands on the final product.
