Hello Neighbor


Although not obvious during gameplay, one can assume what the plot of the story is. It is hinted that Mr. Peterson, the neighbor, and antagonist, had locked his son in his basement for killing his daughter, Mya Peterson. Nicky Roth, the playable protagonist, attempts to discover what the neighbor is hiding. In the second act, Nicky Roth gets locked in the neighbor's basement because he knows too much. Nicky Roth then escapes.

Hide & Seek

The story focuses on Theodore Peterson's children as they play games. One day, Theodore and Diane don't come home for dinner, causing Aaron and Mya to become confused and worried. When Theodore does eventually come home, the kids find out that their mother has died (possibly in a car crash with a pizza truck). Because of the loss, Aaron starts acting out and breaking things. Mya goes to comfort him and they play another game. While they are playing, Aaron trips Mya and repeatedly shoots her with the rifle. Theodore calls them to dinner and Aaron steals Mya's spoon and starts being mean to her. This causes Theodore to get mad and insist that Aaron leave the dinner table. Again in the bedroom, Aaron steals Mya's doll and carries it up to the roof. Mya retrieves the doll, but Aaron accidentally knocks her off the roof and she falls. The last scene in the game is Theodore digging a grave, presumably Mya's.

Hello Neighbor

Act 1

The game begins in Act 1, playing as a young Nicky Roth, who is playing with a ball by himself outdoors. While playing, the player will hear a child scream from across the street in the neighbor's home, which appears smaller than in earlier builds. Nicky, the playable protagonist, will then investigate the neighboring house. Once witnessing the neighbor appears in some kind of distress, he will spot the player and charge at them. After appearing in Nicky's home, the player will be able to explore the home and begin with the game. Without getting caught, the player must run to a closed-off room that can be opened with a near-by lever. In that same room, the player must turn on the electricity to that floor and place a bowling ball in front of a fan. Before turning on the fan, the player should grab any object (ex. a box). Once the fan is turned on, the player must run back outside without getting caught by the neighbor and to a platform that runs up and down the right side of the house before it shoots up without the player. If the player is not able to get on the platform before it goes up, they must redo all the steps until they are able to get through the window to the second floor. Once the player has gotten to the second floor through the window, the player can get the key to the basement. after getting through the door, the player will discover a seemingly simple basement, but when examining the washer/drier, the player will find out that it is an entryway to another site that lies beneath the house. A small section of the area underneath looks like a room of sorts with only a bed, a few candles, basketball, and cans of food. Using the basketball on one of the windows, the player can go through the open space and explore the available area, and attempt to solve a puzzle that unlocks the door. At a very last door, the player will go through and go through the final chase sequence of the first act. The door at the end will be locked, causing the player to be caught by the neighbor.

Act 2

In the following act, Nicky Roth, the protagonist, was caught by the neighbor and has been locked in a room, under the house. Someone will then unlock the door (that someone will be a cutout of a boy if the player decides to look through the keyhole) and accidentally knock one of the standing lights. The player will then have to make their way to a vent in order to escape the basement. Once they are out, the player will discover that the neighbor's house has grown in size, now with a tall fence to accompany it. The player will then have to solve numerous puzzles in order to go out of the tall gates. Every time the neighbor catches the player, short playable cut-scenes will occur and reveals portions of the neighbor's past, showing that he was a happy father and husband, which was gone when one cut-scene shows a car accident that killed a woman, possibly the neighbor's wife. When the player escapes, Mr. Peterson, the neighbor, will come out and show panic about the player escape. Nicky, the player character, will retreat to his him in the cut-scene while Mr. Peterson worries and goes back to his own home, possibly back to the previous child that he also possibly held.

Act 3

In the final act, the player controls a much older Nicky Roth. A cut-scene play, showing Nicky getting evicted from his apartment and returning to his childhood home. A playable sequence will start, where the player can choose to enter Nicky's home or check the now burnt home of Mr. Peterson. If the player chooses the latter, a shadow-like figure will appear briefly, affecting Nicky in some way. In another cut-scene, Nicky will retreat to his home and will look, soon finding a photo of his younger self on a coffee table. After receiving a phone call and spotting the figure across the street, Nicky will then fall asleep, officially beginning act 3. (more will be added...)

Hello Neighbor Pre Alpha

In Hello Neighbor Pre-Alpha, the Neighbor watches TV mainly, so you need to cause distractions such as throwing alarm clocks and radios or breaking windows. The key is on the tv stand and you hold left click to remove the lock. The key's position can change places depending on the layout of the house. If you get caught enough, the layout changes. When the nightmare sequence plays, the Neighbor becomes aggressive and goes into hunt mode the whole day. The lockpick is in the garage if the key layout moved. The hammer is usually in the boiler room in the back. The code for the door is 4785 which can be found by the blacklight (found in the bedroom or bathroom) and searching behind the painting in the side entrance. This is the earliest public version of the game.

Hello Neighbor Alpha 1

This is the second public version of the game. In this one, the player moves into his new house and after a nap, he decides to check out what is going on in his Neighbor's house. He has a nightmare that the Neighbor crashes a car inside the basement. The neighbor behaves more casually in this version, making food, using the bathroom, etc, which he rarely does in Pre-Alpha. He also does stretches like in Pre-Alpha. Alarm clocks and radios still work, along with breaking windows. This version of the game has a puzzle that involves getting a bell from the second floor. Doing this puzzle gives you the key to the basement. The other key is in the camera room, which is easier to get. The hammer has 2 locations, the bedroom, and the garage. It takes off the nails for the basement door's boards. The Crowbar is an alternate for the hammer and is found under the Neighbor's Bed. The second nightmare sequence is a carnival that you hide in, which sparked many theories that the neighbor was a clown. This alpha ends with the player getting buried alive. This may be the most iconic version of the game.

After Mya gathered everything, Aaron still did not understand that the game was over and began to shoot his sister with a toy gun.
