Sir, You Are Being Hunted (Preview)
Apparently, Will Smith’s fear of robots running amok was justified (watch your “I, Robot” kids). In this instance you play the role of a human who is being hunted by robots across a British landscape. The maps are procedurally-generated in this sandbox world, meaning that you’re experiences in one game may not mimic that of the next. Your goal? Survive, any way you can. You’ll need to stealthily move around the foliage to stay hidden, but also scavenge food and weapons to help you in your quest. “Sir, You Are Being Hunted” is currently under development, though you can pay to play early via Steam’s Early Access program.
For obvious reasons, it’s too early for me to make any sort of judgement as to whether or not the game is worth buying. I will say however that I’ve always loved sandbox-survival games. As far as “Sir, You Are Being Hunted” is concerned, there are still some bugs that need to be worked out. However, my experiences thus far have been overall positive. The AI is relentless in hunting you down and they only get harder as the game progresses. Running and gunning in this game just won’t work. It would have been neat to actually explore the houses rather than “auto-loot” them, but I imagine that this feature was left out so that players couldn’t camp out in houses and hide for long periods of time.
