Some games seem tailor-made for the Youtube generation. They have enough emergent gameplay and jump scares that they're great to show off online. One such game is Hello Neighbor, a game that was primed for streaming long before it was actually released.
The finished product, though, is even better than many players had expected.
The basic concept behind Hello Neighbor is a little odd, to say the least, but certainly adds to the uniqueness of the game. You take on the role of a child who has a creepy neighbor. Because of strange goings-on, your goal is to infiltrate the neighbor's house without getting caught.
In many ways, it's a fairly basic childhood fantasy - albeit one that takes a fairly dark turn as you get into the game. More practically, it's a very unique stealth game that tasks players with not only trying to accomplish a few basic objectives, but that makes it nearly impossible to use the same strategies twice in a row.
It's tough to pin down exactly where Hello Neighbor falls in terms of graphics. It isn't photorealism, and its particular style gets away from more traditional graphics. Overall, it looks great. Perhaps a little unpolished, but that is almost certainly part of the game's aesthetic, though, and it's also very difficult to judge the game negatively for accomplishing one of its own goals.
The audio, however, is even better. Most of the environmental noise is excellent, as you'd hope from a game like this. While the music really isn't much to write home about, the game still does a very good job of building up a tense atmosphere with what it brings to the table. The audio design absolutely accomplishes all of its goals, and that's what matters.
In terms of gameplay, you experience a fairly tense stealth game that makes use of some truly unique mechanics in order to keep players on their toes. With the graphics and audio combining to keep you engaged and on the edge of your seat.
One of the real draws of Hello Neighbor is the idea that you're always operating at a deficit. You're a little kid and you're somewhere that you should not be. It's your intellect versus an AI that continues to adapt.
Hello Neighbor is a smart stealth game that will keep you on your toes. It is a fun game that's worth a try whenever you feel like a bit of sneaky fun.
Hello Neighbor is a unique stealth game that will keep you in suspense and wanting to play more!
What follows is the official description of Hello Neighbor, from the developers.
Hello Neighbor is a stealth horror game about sneaking into your neighbor's house to figure out what horrible secrets he's hiding in the basement. You play against an advanced AI that learns from your every move. Really enjoying climbing through that backyard window? Expect a bear trap there. Sneaking through the front door? There'll be cameras there soon. Trying to escape? The Neighbor will find a shortcut and catch you.
