As you may remember Hello Neighbor first popped up on Kickstarter where it came up $88,000 short of its $100,000 goal. After the failed Kickstarter, the game then found its way to Steam Greenlight, where it was successful. Now, the game has been picked up by developer/publisher tinyBuild.
Here’s an overview of the game via its Steam page:
“Hello, Neighbor!” is a brand new first-person tactical puzzler with Artificial Intelligence as an opponent.
We think that modern games lack the deployment of Artificial Intelligence, therefore we decided to change the situation and create a truly smart opponent who will be able to:
- Learn by himself
- Study the player’s tactics
- Undertake counter-actions
- Remember the player’s decisions
- Make plans
The mysterious and unpredictable game plot will make it fun trying to unveil the secrets of the game.
Hello Neighbor is expected to release sometime in Summer 2017 for PC. You can sign up for the game’s alpha via its official website.
tinyBuild has been putting out some absolute gems recently, and so I was essentially sold before even watching the trailer. After watching the trailer, I can see this now ranks among my most anticipated games.
