Big Robot (Jim Rossignol’s development foray) have revealed a brand new project, the fourth to be exact, it’s called Sir, You Are Being Hunted and it looks jolly marvellous.
Big Robot made it clear that Sir, Your Are Being Hunted is actually more of a side project from Project Lodestone. It’s an experiment, sprouting from the ideas they had when thinking about what to do with a procedurally generated world. A tangent, but not one that should be taken lightly, we feel.
So basically, the game is set in a quaint British landscape – hunting, gentlemen, tea drinking and all of those other stereotypes exist, but are blown out of proportion in a sci-fi imagniarium. The gentlemen may have their manners, but they are actually aristocratic robots out on the hunt for you, or as Big Robot put it: “Robots that ape tea-drinking, poachers that lurk in reed-beds, and red-eyed hounds that patrol the moors”. They’re all out to get you and you have to survive – how is something we don’t know yet but there will be more details in the near future.
A term that was used to describe the game is a “British indie S.T.A.L.K.E.R.”, so we’re certainly going to be rooting for that as an idea. Oh and it’s Big Robot so who isn’t going to assume it’s going to be interesting.
