Hello Neighbor: Hide and Seek is a prequel that explains the tragic story behind the neighbor (from the original title ‘Hello Neighbor’).
The game is designed to become harder each time you play, as the AI learns from how you play, and it adapts to this, thus making it more difficult.
While the games story focuses on telling the tragic back story of the neighbor, the game play is based on his children, Mya and Aaron who are engaged in an epic game of hide and seek.
While the game is interesting to learn some of the lore behind the original game, it is however sad to see the game loose some of the tension that made the original so great. Sadly the antagonist of hide and seek just doesn’t have the same fear factor from the first game. And believe me, he was a seriously freaky man!
Hello Neighbor had us jumping out of our seats as the neighbor lurked at the window and suddenly jumped out at us, but Hide and seek sadly feels much more predictable. Although that being said, it’s still a decent game, if you liked the first game, it’s well worth a try when you can pick it up on sale next. Although, at £30 normal price, personally I wouldn’t recommend it.
Hello Neighbor co-op:
Hello Neighbor also have Secret Neighbor coming out very soon which allows up to 6 players to play simultaneously.
The game revolves around a group of children attempting to free their friend from the neighbors basement, however if his traps and other surprises weren’t enough, one of the group is actually the neighbor in disguise.
You can sign up for access to the Alpha here and if accepted, jump into the action early and make all of us without access to Secret Neighbor very jealous.
