Hello Neighbor Gets Two New Trailers Showcasing Story and Gameplay; Alpha 2 Now Available

on November 22, 2016 8:00 AM

Developer Dynamic Pixels and publisher tinyBuild Games have released not one, but two new trailers for their intense action-horror game Hello Neighbor.

The two new trailers highlight the game’s story and gameplay, but also more specifically highlight what fans can expect in Alpha 2, which launches today for anyone who bought Early Alpha Access.

The first trailer — the story trailer — showcases the experience of the opening sequence of the game, which plays as an tutorial/introduction to the main game. The second trailer — the gameplay one — shows some of the items you can in the game to stun the Neighbor, such as fireworks.

Alpha 2 contains the following:

  • Small tutorial house

  • Opening sequence/tutorial

  • Final artstyle

  • Improved AI: The Neighbor notices things being different; lock your doors

  • You can peek through keyholes by holding E

  • Improved throwing & stacking physics

  • Closer-to-final Neighbor reaction speed: you can’t easily runaway from him

  • You can counter the Neighbor with fireworks

  • Short glimpse into the basement upon completion

Alpha 2 also lays out a final structure for the game’s art styles. Which means you will see loads of little touches, like depth of field, the colorful-yet-disturbing scenery, and styled props. Further, developer Dynamic Pixels has warned it will be difficult to predict how the final AI behavior will work in the “large-ass upcoming house,” so they have decided to to tweak him to be able to catch you really fast.

Hello Neighbor Early Alpha Access is currently available on PC for $29.99 USD.

It is expected to release sometime in Summer 2017 for PC. Check out the new trailers below:
