Hello Neighbor 2!
The low-key viral indie provincial town horror has landed in Hello Neighbor, and let’s face it, this neighbor doesn’t want to move to Chile. An investigative reporter comes to the town of Raven Brooks to find out why people are disappearing and who might be responsible. And one resident is especially suspicious, the super creepy Mr. Peterson. A portly man with a mustache is the subject of many rumors and only you have the courage to find out the truth. But the more you dig, the stranger this whole city seems. Enjoy exploring the open world and the story directly dependent on your actions, and then try to outsmart the AI, which constantly learns from the actions of the player. There goes the neighborhood.
