How to download Hello Neighbor: It is not easy to propose innovative titles in the field of horror video games, but tinyBuild with his Hello Neighbor seems to have succeeded in the venture. Hello Neighbor, in fact, is a stealth horror title in which the player, operating with a first-person view, has to sneak into his disturbing neighbor’s house to find out what secrets he hides in the basement.

The title is innovative for its cartoon-style graphic style, which is clearly in contrast with the horror-colored plot, and for the artificial intelligence of the enemy – the disturbing neighbor – who learns from every move of the player and implements counter-moves to always put him more distressed. For example, if the player tries to enter through a window, he can find a toothed trap waiting for him; if he tries to escape by following a certain path, he can expect the neighbor to take a shortcut to reach him faster and so on.

Hello Neighbor is available for Windows PC and Xbox One. It costs just under 30 euros (launch price, subject to future changes) but on PC it is also available in a free demo version that allows you to test the initial part at zero cost. What do you say? Would you like to try it too?
