The first ever footage for the tweedpunk, gentlemen hunting game, Sir, You Are Being Hunted has surfaced. The horror-style trailer and B-movie presentation fits the game perfectly and it's already being hailed as a tweedpunk rendition of GSC Game World's infamous S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise.
When we originally reported on Sir, You Are Being Hunted I'm sure it was met with many a furrowed brow and squiggled glances. However, the gameplay trailer puts into perspective exactly what kind of game Sir, You Are Being Hunted will be. It takes place in a procedurally generated open-world environment, has vicious, unrelenting enemy AI robots on your trail, and lots of horror and tension to boot. Oh yeah and it has tea. Check it out below.
The game is being worked on by four chaps at Big Robot Entertainment and headed up by one of the residents at Rock, Paper, Shotgun. The game looks fantastic and seems to be part of the new-wave of video games that break all the traditional genre molds and just goes for broke on a unique and thrilling concept.
According to Jim Rossignol, the game may or may not have a beta but pre-orders will get underway within the next couple of weeks. The game is still in rough territory as an alpha, and if DayZ is anything to go by with alpha builds (and it is something to go by) then you'll probably want to wait until a solid beta build gets put into production before you clamor for some actual hands-on time.
Sir, You Are Being Hunted is being built on the Unity engine, which has sort of become the indie-engine savior for small design teams. The graphics look fitting and the gameplay could use an extra teaser or two before it receives any critical responses on my behalf. Nevertheless, if you're up for drinking tea, roaming British countrysides and trying desperately to escape gentlemen, tweedpunk robots, Sir, You Are Being Hunted is probably your dream game come true.
