It’d be terrible to live in a world in which I couldn’t sneak my way through some England-inspired areas, and occasionally run and hide from robotic huntsmen. Fortunately, if I hang on for one more month, I – and everyone else who plonked down a pre-order for Big Robot’s spiffing-looking Sir, You Are Being Hunted – will be able to do just that.
The news comes via the latest update video, which is primarily focused on showing off the Fens biome but also contains a date for when everyone who has pre-ordered (or backed the Kickstarter) will get access to the game’s alpha. That date, ladies and gentlemen, is 19 August.
Said alpha will include three of the biomes from the full game – Fens, Rural, and Mountain – each offering different terrain and challenges. Once the alpha’s racing through wild, Big Robot will turn their attention to finishing up the final biomes, adding in the rest of the NPCs, and so on and so forth.
Have a look at the video below, and see why this steampunk survive-’em-up has intrigued me so. Splendid!
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
