About This Game

Sir, You Are Being Hunted is a procedurally-generated British horror in which tweed-wearing robots hunt you for sport. Roam the landscape, scavenge for food, hide breathlessly in the undergrowth, flee in terror, and even fight back with stolen weapons.

Sir is a stealth and survival game unlike any other.

And it now has multiplayer!

Key Features


  • First-person stealth and survival.
  • Procedurally-generated British landscape.
  • Five biomes to explore: castle, industrial, rural, mountainous, and fenland.
  • Infinite replayability in a sandbox world.
  • Powerful, brutal AI that becomes tougher as you play.
  • Tea and biscuits.
  • Foliage-based stealth system.
  • Scavenge to survive.
  • Play as Sir or Madam.
  • Relentless Britishness.
  • NEW! Be hunted with other terrified ladies & gentlemen.

Every Game Unique!

Sir, You Are Being Hunted is set on a mysterious archipelago generated procedurally by you, and therefore unique to each game you play. You can define your own islands, each one created in moments by our rather clever British Countryside Generator. These islands are then populated by a raving aristocracy of murderous robots, their robot hounds, and worse. You job is simply to survive, and get home.

You're not entirely alone, though: The disembodied voice of Walters, your butler, will help you and offer advice.

Ultimate AI Threat


Sir's AI is one of the toughest in stealth, and as an open-world game, it's unique in its field. The robots are some of the most aggressive and intelligent game enemies you will ever experience, and will pursue you even after losing sight of you. Expect to be hunted!

The Most British Of Games


Sir, You Are Being Hunted is set in a parallel Britain, complete with bleak villages, rocky highlands, bramble-filled woodland, decrepit farms, and crumbling post-industrial landscapes. Made with the remarkable power of our British Landscape Generator, these landscapes are enormously evocative and teeming with detail. Take time to explore, and find that vital hidden flask of tea!

Its actually a very unique game with a different sense of humour and a good british feel. You basically get hunted by robots, have to loot houses and try to find food to survive. There is multiple biomes you can choose from however if you choose the castle biome there is no where to find loot which is a really big ♥♥♥♥ing problem. However I got rather fed up as the game quickly becomes incrediably hard and almost impossible so on these grounds I cannot recommend it. You can also not enter the houses which ♥♥♥♥ing sucks.

I bought this game while it was on the summer sale, and since I had been wanting this game for a bit, I was happy to buy it. When I first played it I realized it was a mistake for buying it because although it can be funny at times, the robot's AI is annoying. I experienced bugs where even if the game says I'm undetecable and I'm still and crouching, I would still be found. The enemies got hard way too quickly, and within the almost two hours I played I died numerous times from the stun blocking horsemen. Overall 4.99 for it is a decent price, but anymore is a rip-off.

I had really high hopes for this game, I really did but the controller support is broken. Using a 360 pad the buttons either arent labled correctly or dont work at all. You can take the tired old excuse "its better with mouse and keyboard anyway!!" and shove it. Furthermore when the first thing you see is a tutoral area with procedurally generated enemies that spawn 20 feet away who spot you and kill you while the narrator is still instructing you, you know right away that a game like that is a prefessional product.

Pros - Looks and runs great. If you intend to only use M/KB then grab it.

Dear Sir and/or Madam, you are currently being hunted

Sir, You Are Being Hunted is a stealth and survival game where you end up in a randomly generated world full of robot men with guns, robot dogs with big teeth and big hot air ballons all tracking you down whilst you have to find pieces to what looks like a extra terrestrial shard thingy

The game is scary as you are constantly on the lookout for any of the enemies and the electronic conversations and shooting in the distance really makes you on your toes. The game is challenging, you can only carry a certain amount. Your view can change depending on where you are hiding and the level of crouch and when you're hit, you start to bleed out

Overall, the game is fun and interesting to play but sadly after 4 hours of playing the game, I felt like I covered all my tracks and I was just doing the same things over and over again. Find shards in different areas of the world whilst trying to avoid the robot men with giant guns

The game also offers multiplayer, it's mostly the same thing only with other people and you can be spotted by the robots easier because of the amount of trolls in the game

Sir, You Are Being Hunted is an interesting and scary game to play, but after a while, it just gets repetitive. This game is best played in bursts rather than in one whole sitting

It's stealth and survival with tea and biscuits, lovely

RECOMMENDED :)

I bought this game because I like Stealth. I love the Thief series. Deus Ex. Metal Gear. If I can sneak and outsmart my enemies, I'm all in.

This game makes that rather difficult. Each of my untimely demises brought about a story, and made me shout. Each time I was able to crouch behind a bush, tree, fence, and watch the search lights of the enemy sweep past my hiding spot, I got a terrified little thrill. There's a lot of sneaking, and searching, and standing out in the open trying to find the next waypoint, but it all leads to moments like that.

I ran into a small copse of trees to hide from several pipe-smoking robots out looking for me. As I slipped further into the trees and into a low swampy area, I heard this sound. It was errie, something new, and difficult to locate. I peeped around the large tree I was hiding behind, and saw this big, round, shadowy figure slowly plodding through the swamp with the help of a cane. I had no idea what he could do. What his attacks were. How well he could see. I only knew he was taller than I was, with round, white eyes, and that huge cane. I hid from him, not because I knew what kind of threat he posed, but because I DIDN'T know, and that was much more frightening.

That's what Sir, You are being Hunted does best. It leaves things up to your imagination. It is very much in the ilk of Brittish Movies like, "Cold Comfort Farm," were one of the characters constantly says, "I saw something nasty in the wood shed," but all they show you is her peering into the shed, and her screaming in terror. Well, I saw something nasty in the water, and I'll never go for a swim there again.

I recommend this. It's a slow, creeping, cornered by wolves sort of game, and I've greatly enjoyed playing so far. Give it a shot!

This is one of my favorite games. Like black licorice, it's not for everyone, but some people will find they really enjoy it. The replayabillity isn't the best, but I enjoy picking it up every other month when my library feels dry and I don't want to try anything new. I just started to play in multiplayer with my brother, and that is where I've had the most fun so far. I generally pick a flat cap and a red coat, pretending I'm a russian scientist-- slav squating and complaining about the lack of vodka. If you have a bit of an imagination and know how to play a rusty trombone it's hard to beat this game. On a seperate note it runs quite nicely on my laptop, the music and atmosphere really capture depressing English weather and I haven't encountered any bugs since the ghost dogs clinging to people after they've been killed (which has been fixed). Overall it's a great game and I'd love to see more from this development company, whether they continue with this or move on to something else.

I haven't played this game for very long yet (only 19 mins so far), but I already love it. The music is great, the story is confusing, and the enemies can actually make you jump. The whole idea of you being hunted is nerve wracking along with the fact that you have no allies. You must search for food and safe places to hide as more and more robots join in on the hunt.
Yes, I haven't played for very long and yes, I'll probably edit this review later on in life, but it's still a great game! You are always looking for places to hide, and you are always on your guard.
You can tell this game is doing it's job when you are frightened by a little bunny running across the screen.
There is so much I can say about this game, but I won't. All I shall say is that the graphic style is nice, the robot diversity is great, the music is edgy and strange, and the game play isn't that bad. Besides, the robots have top hats and monocles, how awesome can you get with this game?
8/10 it's my first horror related game and I love it. I'll be telling all of my friends about this game in the future.

First off, I have had this game for a while and I really like it. I has a creepy and ominous feeling to it and it really adds to the atmosphere. The inventory system is kind of weird to get used it but it teaches you to keep what is absolutely neceassary from junk. Overall, I'd say it's a good buy. BUT, and I say this because it should be fixed, after you complete the centre island, the robot spawning on the other islands is crazy. You could do one thing and then be surrounded by 20 robots (I say 20 because this happened to me twice.) You can change the spawing rate which I suggest you do because if you don't it makes the game extremely difficult. Other than that, it's great.

This is a game about charging down shotgun weilding robots with a hatchet while screaming like a madman/woman. Or you can pretend you have a cardboard box and sneak around everywhere, but where's the fun in that? With that said, at full price perhaps a bit expensive for what's offered.

Down, down down! Ok, keep your head down. There, through the trees? See the town? I think there's some food and stuff left there... What? yes, I know it's dangerous.. Ok, come on... keep low... go go go!, stay in the grass, as much as you can... Look, a wall, head for it! KEEP DOWN! shh! ok... stay by the wall.... just a bit further... quick, look around the phone box.. what can you see? SH*T! head down.. I think it saw me... breathe.. breathe.. Ok, I think it's lost interest... quick, peek again... good... it's headed down that side street.. ok, quick dash, around that barrel, and the remains of the shopping cart, and the house will shield you.. GO!.. quickquickquick...DOWN! God, not a moment too soon.. there's three of them! I didn't see the other two. OK, check inside.. what is there? is that IT? no, we can't eat that.. a rock may be useful.. It gives me an idea....

OK, let's try that house... I know, they're in the way... here! Nnng! Haha, they heard the rock hit that phone box.. ok, count to 3.. 1, 2.. 3, go! keep low... careful! now!..ok, made it, what's in this house? rags, good... some marmalade, excellent.. Pickled eggs, oh thank god! Here, pass me a few.. mm.. oh that's good. I was so hungry.. Right.. we're going to have to get out of here, it's too dangerous. One more egg, though... ahh.. I think I saw a boat a mile or so that way, off to the south... it means a quick dash over the grass, and into that field of wheat, then through those woods.

I think the robots are gone.. ok, GO!.. RUN!.. UH OH, I think they.... SH*T! That missed me by.. OW! AAGH, they got me in the arm.. KEEP RUNNING! FENCE! JUMP IT! THEY'RE COMING!.. Jesus. the fence stopped that one! OK, the fence'll hitch 'em up.. cross the field, RUN.. We're losing them... Wait, what's that? Looks like a scarecrow, haha.. wh? It's... looking at me! What? Come on, leave it, it's just... AAGH! HOW DID IT GET BEHIND ME? Oh god, RUN! It's SHOUTING FOR HELP! RUN!!! AGH, IT'S THERE AGAIN!! No, it moves when you stop looking at it.. keep looking at it.. back off... slowly... Uh oh, the others are coming in from the other way.. they're going to cut us off... We just have to get out of this field... keep backing away... I know they're coming, but keep looking at it.. back up, slowly... keep going... Wha! Oh, it's the fence on the other side! That thing is still looking at us, and it's told the others where we are.. they're coming... just keep backing along the fence... feel it with your hands, don't stop looking...

We're losing sight of it now.. Oh! It's turned away! I think it lost sight of us first! .. ok, get down... crawl in the wheat, keep your head down... go go .... The others went to where the scarecrow was last looking.. I think.. oh thank god, there's a break in the fence... through! Go!.. keep down.. there's the edge of the woods and small depression in the ground.. Keep low, head down, let the terrain shield you... look! A small hut ibehind those trees. it might have some food. I think I might be bleeding from that nick in the arm.. quick, commando crawl into the woods... three meters.. two.. one... through that bush... ok, we're surrounded by trees, head for the cabin.... ow! nettles.. keep going.. just around this pond... ok look inside.. Yes! A pistol.. and a few bullets.. That'll help.. Let me.. bandage my arm.. ok, done. I.. just.. need to sit.. down... Ahh... *time passes*..

Wh? what's that sound? Wha?.. Oh no.. look! Some kind of hot air balloon with a searchlight! and it's coming our way! I think there are robots on it with binoculars.. Look, the boat's not far.. let's head off... it takes us slightly away from the path of the balloon... OK, come on... there's nobody about, let's run! Go!... Mind that fencepost! And a postbox.. weird.. what's that doing here? Hmm, ok, Over this rise... there! Through the reeds, down on the water! It's the boat, come ON! What do you mean you saw something? What? where? There? some smoke? Leave it! Yes, it might be important, but that balloon might see us if it comes this way! OK, OK let's check it out, quickly..

It looks like it's coming from beyond that ruined barn... keep quiet... let's head for the barn and use it as cover... Shame the grass is so short here.... Nngg.. let's quietly check the place out... good.. nothing here.. just a barrel.. with... mmm.. HAHA! whiskey! Ohhh yeaahhh.. I am gonna party like it's 1999! *glug*.. ahhhhhhhh.. ♥♥♥♥, shure hit she shpot... mmmm... hey, why you all blurry? mmm.. oh! bottle might come in handy.. Right, I*uhic*, I shay, I'm ready to check that shmoke out... letsh move-out!... But. keep low anyway.... follow that dry shtone wall... Aahh, the whiskey's wearing off.. There, I can see the smoke.. looks like a few robots guarding it.. Why? Let's get closer.. Oop! Down! he saw me, shh!. *whisper* there's a big rock.. let's head for that when he turns away... ok, go!....

That whatever-it-is, is right on the other side of this rock, you can hear it humming! . Let's see what they make of this bottle! MMMmff! haha, boy that was a long throw... ha! a pleasing sound.. Oh, that got their attention! There they go, quick, go grab it! Yes! Get it! What is it? I don't care, take it!, come ON! They're coming back! Ow! Watch it! OK, what was it? some kind of cog thing. Looks like the shape on that stone in the stone circle.. bizarre. ok, let's head for the boat, you've satisfied your curiosity.. Keep the rocks between them and us! Let's go.......

SYABH is a brilliant stealth game. The programmers who made the random scenery and terrain are geniuses. It may also be the most british game of all time, as well! The end-music is well worth playing through for, as well...

If I had to describe this game, it changes it feel according to what you're doing. Sometimes it feels like Thief, sometimes "S.T.A.L.K.E.R"... The whole atmosphere is excellent, and despite dieing repeatedly, I just couldn't stop, because I knew I could beat it with patience. Oh, yes, that's what this game needs, patience, and LOTS of it. You are very vulnerable, so being quiet, taking your time, and planning your move will help you immensely. The graphics aren't as polished as a AAA game, and the music is ambient and atmospheric, sounding like some of the stock sounds from a synth app. The UI is minimal and does look a little amateurish.. However, none of that really detracts from the game. The locations are superb, the path-finding is excellent, and the constant pressure to keep moving is superb. you really do feel like you're public enemy #1.

Well recommended, but not for people who only like SHMUPS and FPSes... Quake, this ain't. If you liked Thief, though, this is more your style. Make sure you have a thermos of tea and some biscuits when you play as well. It's what us brits would do :)

I was hungry

With 75% of my inventory occupied by bottles and empty guns, but no food or rags, I need to find a source of food. a house to loot, perhaps. I scurry into a forest after the sound of a squadron falls upon my ears; I am in no condition to fight. I wander the forest for a little bit, helplessly watching my vitality droop into the low thirties. I need food, drink, anything.

And fast.

After crawling through the forest for a few minutes, I hear humming. There is a lone robot here. I scope out the immediate area, hoping to set course away from certain doom. Upon laying eyes on the beast, however, I sit in place, carefully calculating where it was traveling.

For it was passing an unlooted shack.

I watch the shack and robot from above, for I was stationed on a hill just out of sight. My vitality is hitting the low teens. This shack was is last shot at life, for any village would be too far to not starve. This is my last chance, and I need to spend it wisely. I note the robot's steady patrol around the shack, and sprint when he rounds the corner away from the door. I do not care if I am seen; I could run after I retrieved any food in the shack, and any other course of action would leave me dead.

A meter or so away, I note that I can no longer hear the robot humming. This was either my lucky day, or my last. I got within a few decimeters of the door, so close to life once more.

Snap

That is all I hear, and all I need to hear. I am dead. The abrupt and loud snap and accompanying crunch can only mean one thing.

I quickly look down to inpect my injured shin, shattered by a perfectly placed bear trap. I quickly try to undo the traps mechanisms, to free myself and run. I am interupted by a loud click above my head, to which I stand up to identify. I am greeted by the barrel of a large gun, and then by a bright light and darkness. I can feel the ground as I land, I feel it welcome me to a long, peaceful slumber. As I fall into eternal sleep, I am greeted with a lullaby, a familiar song that I am unable to name. It was unsettling, however in the way it was sung, or rather, hummed.

And it sounded oddly robotic.
