Sir, You Are Being Hunted hits Kickstarter funding target with 25 days remaining

Sir, You Are Being Hunted, the "tweedpunk" survival sim from U.K based developer Big Robot, has hit its Kickstarter funding goal of 40,000 English pounds (roughly $64,400), less than a week into its first crowdfunding effort.

The Kickstarter for the open-world title launched on Nov. 2 and users can continue to back the project until Dec. 2. Backers who pledge 10 pounds will receive a digital copy of the game, with additional pledge rewards available at higher price points, ranging from a Sir, You Are Being Hunter boardgame designed by the development team to the inclusion of the backer's name in the game's lore and fiction.

"Wow, we're stunned by how quickly we've hit target," reads a project update from the developer. "Thanks, everyone! This money is going to help us turn our prototype into a fully-fledged game of being hunted by robots. Animation and new art will be the priority, and we'll be revealing new NPCs and other details in the coming days."

Additional stretch goals for the project will be posted tonight.

Sir, You Are Being Hunted is scheduled to launch July 2013 on PC, Mac and Linux. Alpha footage of the game was revealed yesterday.
