A Horror Game Where The AI Learns From Your Every Move

Ever been curious about a neighbor—so curious that you’ve considered snooping? Announced today, stealth horror PC game Hello Neighbor will take that spying, meddling impulse to the extreme. Also extreme is your enemy, just a friendly neighborhood AI who learns from your every move.

In Hello Neighbor, an advanced AI will come after you if your snooping catches his eye. Your mistakes will teach it how to best hunt you down, an excellent mechanic for a horror game. Developers Tinybuild and Dynamic Pixels call Hello Neighbor a “first-person tactical puzzler” with “sandbox style gameplay.”

From Steam:

“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.”

It’s worth noting that the art looks phenomenal.

Hello Neighbor is slated for release in September, 2017. You can sign up for the alpha here.

Ehhhhh... Cool concept but the art style is a bit too Pixar for my tastes. I don’t know how tense I can get in a horror game when the villain looks like an extra from Ratatouille.
