Developer using Kickstarter to fund a stealth survival game for the British gentleman

Sir, you are being hunted. Well, not really, but you could be in the new procedurally generated survival stealth game from Big Robot Games called … Sir, You Are Being Hunted.

The developer is Kickstarting its new “tweedpunk” sci-fi game. In Sir, You Are Being Hunted robots hunt humans for sport across the british countryside. Big Robot created The British Countryside Generator which creates unique terrain for each player. Sir, You Are Being Hunted runs on the Unity Engine and the studio will release it on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Sir, You Are Being Hunted is a first-person game. It has a lot of combat and shooting, but it’s primarily about survival. The game uses a visibility meter and a foilage-based stealth mechanic which allows players to easily hide in the thick English woods.

To survive, gamers will have to evade the hunting robots, loot abandoned buildings, and collect pieces of a machine that could help the protagonist escape.

Fans of the recent DayZ mod for Arma II or the Ukranian-developed Stalker games should have a good grasp of what Sir, You Are Being Hunted is attempting. Big Robot distinguishes its game with a pinch of dark British humor. For example, the developer promises a disembodied sinister butler, strange lore, pipe-smoking moustache-wearing robotic citizens, and pubs.

Big Robot has worked on the game for the past six months and is now asking for help through Kickstarter. The studio is looking for 40,000 quid, which is around $64,000. Backers have already pledged over $20,000.
