L.G.C. |Reviews| — Sir, You Are Being Hunted (Alpha)

The Linux GameCast Weekly crew hunt filthy stink humans with our pre-alpha review chairs.

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.

Makes with the working


  • UBUNTU 12.04 LTS


  • Fedora 18?


  • Korora 19 in a 4 year old mid-range laptop.

  • It takes forever to load and I have to force my screen to refresh so I can actually see the progress.

  • Otherwise I’d be looking at a black screen for like 10 minutes.


Shiny / Sounds


  • For an alpha it looks like a bit of alright.

  • The atmosphere works and I think the sound is spot on.


  • Well, it is an early build, so this guy comes with an asterisk for the looks

  • The sounds add a nice touch of paranoia



  • Most textures flicker like christmas lights, the ones that don’t are blurry as fuck.

  • Sounds are great, you can tell exactly in how much shit you’re in by the sounds alone.




  • It’s a bit herky jerk but I like my gerbil sensitivity high.

  • Aiming is a bit of a PITA


  • Mouse sensitivity is all jacked, had to use the hardware switch on my mouse


  • Mouse sensitivity is way too damn high.

  • Lowering it makes it too damn slow.




  • I ..get where they’re going with this but it’s a long way from it.

  • A multiplayer option would be most welcome

  • The initial load is loooooooooooooooooooooooooong.


  • I noped out of this game fairly quickly….twice

  • I wanted to like it, I really did, but the game needs a lot of work

  • There isn’t much room for creativity, as pedro mentioned

  • You can’t attack your puruers much either


  • The 80’s called, they don’t want their technical limitations back. http://goo.gl/qiaVC

  • Also, this is a game about survival, right!? Think about it… You’re being hunted, what’s the best place to hide and wait for things to cool off? Out in the middle of the tundra or inside a building?

  • Say you’re trying to aim down the barrel of your gun to kill your pursuers, where would you rather be shooting? Inside a nice place where nothing moves and you can hear things clearly or out in the same tundra where the grass moves, bugs fly and enemy balloons can spot you?

  • This isn’t a game about survival, this is a game about running. You run from smoke pillars to the standing stone, rinse repeat.

  • The pieces of the machine you’re trying to build take ⅓ of your inventory. Means in a normal situation you can carry 1 maybe two at a time. Making it for what I foresee to be a very frustrating (read boring) game of There and Back Again™!


Final – *

  • Is it worth $20? In my opinion, no. But it is still an Alpha, so I may yet eat my words.

  • If this was priced at $9.00 wet stinky I would say pick it up but @ 20 it’s a wait.
