Hello Neighbor comes a-knocking in this intense trailer

Hello Neighbor

I consider myself lucky to have the normal, not-terrifying sort of neighbours. I’ve never had to entertain thoughts of what that almost-but-not-quite screaming noise was at night, or wonder what they needed an industrial pressure-washer for. And I’m sure the local rumors are exaggerated. They have to be, right?

Fortunately for me, then, that I can vicariously enjoy those unsettling thoughts through videogames. Upcoming stealth-horror game Hello Neighbor is ready for one more round in the limelight thanks to a spooky new trailer after the jump, and a few announcements from creators Dynamic Pixels.

Hello Neighbor [official site] casts you into the role of home invader, as you go breaking and entering into the house of the man who lives across the street.

Home Invasion Inverted: Hello Neighbor

You can play Hello Neighbor [official site] right now, for free, and I strongly suggest that you do. Not because of any great qualities in the design, but rather because some of my favourite things about it might get ‘fixed’. I’m thinking of the time the chase music began while I was in my own home and the neighbour’s face pressed against the window suddenly as he tried to run through it to murderise me. Or the time when I hid in a wardrobe and tried to lean so that I could peek through a crack in the door only to find myself leaking slowly through that crack and directly into the neighbour’s line of sight.

Good times.
