Sir, You Are Being Hunted has been flushed out of hiding; here’s our Sir, You Are Being Hunted review.
I’ve already conceived Sir’s sequel, a human-on-android revenge tale that basically plays out like Team Fortress 2’s Mann vs. Machine mode. It’s called Siri, You Are Being Hunted, and I’ll get around to pitching Big Robot with it one of these days. Until then, you’ll have to make do with another round of screenshots from the original game’s alpha version, which will roll out to early access tier Kickstarter backers this week. Sigh.
The seven screens mostly paint vignettes designed to make you go, “Shiiiiiiiit”, under your breath, like that.
Driving back from a well-known British theme park under a swollen evening sun recently, I was struck by how much the Staffordshire countryside resembled Sir, or indeed the other way around. Though I didn’t take any screenshots, I took great glee in pointing out copses whenever I saw them, which was often.
This is a game about English attitudes, accents and clothes, but it’s also about England: surviving in it. And I can’t bloody wait for that. Can you?
