Update #3

Update #3 - Wow, Funded!

Wow, we're stunned by how quickly we've hit target. 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. 

Sir, You Are Being Hunted will be released, all that remains to be seen from here is how much additional awesomeness we can cram in.

We'll also post some stretch goals later today.

Again, thanks. You guys are amazing.

      Quote from my brother: "I'm going to fund them for the word 'tweed-punk' alone"

      Quote from friend: "They used the phrase 'a bit pants' in a gameplay trailer? Get my wallet."

      When I started my science degree I was an avid gamer (still am at heart), I picked up a copy of Jim's book This Gaming Life, and my now (then unknown) girlfriend noticed me on campus as she was also an RPS reader. So I guess, supporting Jim was the way of paying him back! That and it looks pretty freaking sweet.

      You really shouldn't be surprised, considering the weight of good feeling towards Mr. Rossignol in the PC gaming community. Still a splendid thing to happen though.
