Sir, You Are Being Hunted alpha footage creeps into view

Sir, You Are Being Hunted, a "tweedpunk" open-world survival sim from upstart developer Big Robot, showed its hand this morning with the release of a three-minute gameplay trailer taken from an early alpha build of the game.

The video shows off the tense, stealth-centric flow of the title, which casts the player as human who's being hunted down by gentlemanly robots. The player will have to distract and sneakily incapacitate his pursuers in order to escape the affair, though the odds (and technological distribution) is weighed heavily in the robots' favor.

Sir, You Are Being Hunted is currently a few days into a Kickstarter drive to raise funds to finish development. Once it's done — hopefully by July 2013, according to the Kickstarter page — it will launch on PC, Mac and Linux.
