That didn't take long. Shortly after the initial announcement of heading to Kickstarter, Big Robot's Sir, You Are Being Hunted has reached its goal of £40,000. The game is a procedurally generated open-world survival game where you attempt to scavenge and escape from an island filled with killer robots who have a taste for hunting humans.
The Kickstarter for Sir, You Are Being Hunted went into effect on November 2nd last week. It wasn't too long after the Kickstarter was announced that support came flooding in from many gamers who had been keeping their eye on the project ever since it was announced over at Rock, Paper, Shotgun.
The game sees players taking part in a human-hunting game in the British countryside where environments randomized each time you play. Trudging through the soggy, grassy hillsides and prairies provides for a slightly different approach to the first-person survival genre than other games that seem to focus on desert or urban survival arenas.
In addition to the game hitting its Kickstarter goal, there's some new pre-alpha footage available to give gamers an idea of what the gameplay will be like. Check it out below.
I like where the game is going. The direction seems clear, they just need to hammer out the A.I. to be a more crass and the player damage a bit more apparent. It's not like you're trading pebble shots in a BB gun...those are shotguns and they're the kind that puts a sunroof through your body when you lay down.
The DRM-free, indie survival game is expected to release sometime next year. That gives the developers plenty of time to iron out the kinks. You can learn more about Sir, You Are Being Hunted by visiting the Official Website.
