Hello Neighbor (2017)

About This Game

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.


The game was released as an alpha build on Dynamic Pixels’ website in 2015. It was later approved for sale as an early access game by the Steam Greenlight program and a Kickstarter campaign was launched to fund further development. The studio then signed a deal with tinyBuild to publish the game. The game was released for Microsoft Windows and Xbox One on 8 December 2017 with mixed reviews. Critics admonished its gameplay, control scheme, and technical performance; however, some praised the story aspects and art style.

A timed Microsoft exclusive, Hello Neighbor was later ported to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and mobile devices.[8] The mobile versions of the game are only supported on a limited number of devices and come with a free trial that allows the player to play through Act 1, with the option to unlock the remaining two Acts with an in-game purchase of $14.99.


  • Suspenseful horror gameplay (not jump scares) that focuses on sneaking around your neighbor’s house
  • Constantly evolving experience where the Neighbor’s AI counters your moves, and learns from what you do
  • Sandbox-style gameplay with plenty of environmental interaction and physics
