    Talking of Hunted I have no idea how it has managed to get up to Series 3! The celebrity one was for a good cause obviously but the final episode was the usual formulatic nonsense when it came to the climax of the winners JUST getting away (and the Hunters magically zoning in on the pickup point).

    There wasn’t even a bonus donation to SU2C for some of them managing to escape either which was a bit mean.

      I saw some of the finale after Bake Off, mixed feelings. I found the celebrities actually a decent ‘in’, as they seemed likeable and you’d root for them. And then about half way through it felt like the amount of bollocks was hitting a tipping point – I know they ‘replicated’ the police abilities so it’s all set up, but a bunch of their steps just felt like they didn’t happen. First was the ‘someone who follows X on Snapchat emailed it to us’, and then some of their other ones that I just gave up half way through when it became clear ‘oh they’ll get caught because X and they’ll get to the finish line just at the end of the episode’. When the finale doesn’t feel worth watching probably isn’t great.

    I see the logo for Firehazard games at the bottom of that page, which makes me think this will probably be based on one of their (genuinely excellent) street games. How close that will really be to a Hunted “Experience” is a mystery to me, though.

      I expect at some point you’ll be forced to call your mum and give away your location even though you know that’d be a stupid thing to do.

      This sounds like it has a bit of puzzling and code cracking which doesn’t sound very Hunted, and clearly you’re unlikely to pay fifty quid and then get eliminated after ten minutes, so I’m certainly intrigued to find out how it all works.

      It might be quite fun if you can play as a Hunter.

      As someone who has crewed for several of their games, let me tell you that this is going to be a bit of everything from what I have heard.

        Thanks.

        As a format this has been knocking around for years and years so goodness knows why it’s come now. I’m not expecting big things, we’ll see.

      I didn’t know that, thanks! I think 4 of the 5 stories in the first week are Dan P’s. Draw your own conclusions from that.
