It's July. It's Hot. It's The Perfect Time For The Sir, You Are Being Hunted Multiplayer Test!

The multiplayer test is now up on the betas branch for Sir, You Are Being Hunted. Details of how to get at that and how to run your own servers are over here.

We've got a few of our own servers up, but they might be a little slow, so if you can run your own and let us know how you get on, that'd be appreciated.

We did a video to explain a bit about what we're up to, over here: https://youtu.be/zDxvUqyktoo

Please do let us know how you get on. We'll be updating again early next week.

Cheers!

Coming This July: The Sir, You Are Being Hunted Multiplayer Test

Hello there. Long time! How've you been?

This is a quick update to say that the Sir, You Are Being Hunted multiplayer test will start on July 1st. It's been a long and difficult road to get to this point, but thanks to the hard work of Dan and James we're now able to open up a test client to everyone who owns the game at the start of next month. We'll collecting feedback bug reports as usual for this work-in-progress aspect of the game.

We'll provide information on how to get hold of the client - as well as some other details about what we're up to - on the day.

Hope to see some of you online in July.


Choo!-Choo!

Cheers,

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.

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.

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!

I ate mushrooms that "seemed legit", tripped balls, and ran 30 minutes through the British country side while robots shot at me. When I got home I played this game and it was alright.

This game provides a good challenge to those that enjoy a methodical and patient approach to solving a problem. The problem in this case is gathering 15 parts of a device that will allow you to escape the archipelago of death you're currently stranded on.

It all starts swimmingly well with the first piece right next to you but the closer you get to victory, the more persistent and diabolical the automate that besets you becomes. For you are not just being hunted, it seems like the whole of the species is in season and you're the only one left in the vicinity so other than the supplies you can scavenge, you are very much alone against what at first seem insurmountable odds.

It's not so bad after some practice but it takes the patient and persistent sort. If that's you then you are in for a treat. Enjoy.

ADDENDUM: MULTIPLAYER IS HERE... taste old british steel up your ♥♥♥♥ in fine co-op style! Don't forget the Scones!

Pre-Release Review
Mechanics are great, graphics are okay. I love the game. It's lots of fun. It would be more fun with co-op experience, I hope they make a multiplayer mode as they promised. 10/10

Pre-Release Review
A beautiful game with a lovingly built procedural engine. Unfortunately there's not much more to it. The game is designed to be replayed, but each game is too long, and there's simply not a lot of depth to it. You must collect all the shards, but each shard is gathered in pretty much the same way. While the lands vary in looks, they all play the same, and while the variety of NPCs seems exciting at first it all comes down to not being seen. In the end the problem becomes that there's just not a lot of game there.

Have Some Tea And Biscuits My Good Chap!

Hello all lets sit down and have some Tea and Biscuits and talk about Sir,You are Being Hunted.I really like this game! The mix of FPS ,Stealth and Survival mechanics come together pretty nice in this game.The controls are your standard FPS set up,so its cake if you play any fps games. I think what grabs you the most and draws you in is the look and the atmosphere of this game. This is what a good team does with the Unity Engine (Incomeing Unity Haters in 5...4...3...2...1.. :P ).

The only draw back i think this game is missing is 2 things Co-Op and Steam Workshop !! I think these two things would have brought me over the top with this title!But all in all a killer single player game!

So if you havent by now put down your Tea and Biscuits and go Pick this game up !!! CHEERS!!! PIP PIP CHEERIO!!!
