HELLO NEIGHBOR’s Halloween Trailer is Downright Terrifying

It feels like we’ve been talking about the stealth horror game Hello Neighbor—made by tinyBuildGAMES—for roughly 65 years, but it’s only ever been in Alpha testing. Even still, the game where your mustachioed neighbor who definitely looks like a circus strongman is up to something nefarious and you have to break-and-enter to see what it is, has captured the hearts, minds, and puckered rectums of tense players everywhere. The game is now in Beta testing and to commemorate that, plus your ability to pre-order the game on Steam, a Halloween trailer has been released, and it’s super weird.

People have already become obsessed with the complicated lore of Hello Neighbor and have whole sites devoted to figuring out what your neighbor is up to from clues in production material and within the game itself. He’s sold his soul to the devil, it seems like, and his home becomes and ever-unfolding, nigh-Lovecraftian nightmare full of moving dress forms, basements upon basements, and a neighbor who can inexplicably grow to the size of Gamera.

Though there’s not a ton of new information to be gleaned from the Halloween teaser–aside from the fact that your neighbor has a super cool roller coaster attached to his dang house!–we do get a gem at the end of the video showing the neighbor strutting it out to “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees. Maybe he’s not so monstrous after all. Also, evidently there’s a single frame at the very, very end that this YouTuber pointed out tying Hello Neighbor to another popular indie survival horror game, Bendy and the Ink Machine. So many layers to this game!

Hello Neighbor is officially available on Windows, macOS, and Xbox One on December 8, 2017. Are you girding yourself properly? Let us know in the comments below!
