Can You Get Home In Time For Tea?
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.
Sir, You Are Being Hunted is set on a mysterious archipelago generated by you, and unique for each game. 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. Your job is simply to survive. Search the islands for a means to get home, or die trying. You're not entirely alone, though: The disembodied voice of Walters, your butler, will help you and offer advice.

SyabH is a fantastic game, as long as you accept the fact that you are not supposed to run around shooting everything in sight. It is a game rewarding a slow, thoughtful approach to problems,(hopefully not followed by a panicked run to the next forest whilst hounds close in and you are getting shot at by viciously posh robots.)
You CAN lower the difficulty by selecting "better"read more equipment at the start, and depending on what kind of resources you find the game might range from insane to walk in a dark and frightening park, but it is never going to be really easy
The graphics are stylised but work very well to convey the atmosphere of an idealized british landscape. The soundscape fits the mood perfectly too.
The robots are both funny in their behaviour and scary in their relentlessness and the general mood of the game is akin to being in an episode of The Avengers (Emma Peel/John Steed, NOT Thor/Loki) or Twillight Zone (nothing to do with sparkly vampires:P
The main point of criticism I can offer is that you can not enter buildings, but, to be honest, it doesn't detract from the great gameplay.
(disclaimer : I bought it while it was in beta, and not here)

I admit, it's a very clever and original premise: You are victim of a unfortunate experiment and get stranded (or teleported) on a big island-complex full of aristocratic robots who like sports - especially hunting humans. As funny and original as this sounds, the gameplay itself is rather boring for me: I don't feel a real threat and no single shiver of despair haunts me - theread more robots are just not menacing or frightening at all and so the whole "hunt" lacks in atmosphere. All I have to do is running around in extremely extensive, relatively boring and unspectacular landscapes and finding parts to get the teleporter device running again. I have to eat all the time to stay alive and I'm only able to save at specific places in the gameworld. For me the game is boring and can't understand the high ratings. Technically it's also far away from being a beauty. I should have saved my dollars on this one.

This is essentially a survival steath game and although it was released today there is still a lot more to come. I have been with this game since mid Alpha the developers are constantly on the forum in contact with the players and much of the game has been player driven. Basically you have to find and collect parts of a machine without being killed or starving whilst you are beingread more hunted by various robotic adversaries. I have a very detailed review but limitations on size here prevent me posting it I will do so as soon as there is a community slot open for SYABH all I can say is it won't suit some but, for myself it is 70 hours and still playing. highly recommended
