Hello Neighbor is an upcoming stealth survival horror video game developed by independent Russian studio Dynamic Pixels and published by tinyBuild Games. The game’s artificial intelligence modifies the neighbor’s behavior based on the player’s past actions, such as setting traps along paths the player followed in a previous attempt.
The game, originally known as Hello, Neighbor!, was released as an alpha build on Dynamic Pixels’ website in 2015, before being approved for sale as an early access game by the Steam Greenlight program and launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund further development, after which the studio signed a deal with tinyBuild Games to publish the game.
In Hello Neighbor, the player finds themselves moving into a new house across the street of a mysterious neighbor, who seems to be keeping a secret in his basement. The player’s task is to break into the neighbor’s home and gather items needed to unlock and access his basement. As the player explores the neighbor’s house, he must not be spotted by the neighbor, or he will be chased down and caught. The neighbor will also attempt to stop, slow down or locate the player using various items such as bear traps and CCTV cameras. Once the player has been spotted, the neighbor will chase him down, while throwing glue at him to slow him down by calculating his run trajectory. The neighbor can also detect a flashlight’s beam, sounds and any positional changes of the objects in his house. If the player is caught, he will be placed in front of his own house and will have to break in again.
