As you explore the neighbour's house from the first-person perspective, you have to avoid being spotted or be chased down and be captured. Creeping around like this leads to high suspense and jump scares. You can stun them and throw objects. Each time you are caught you go back to your house and try again.

In the Secret Neighbor version of the game, one plays as the neighbour and six as the intruder. The neighbour chooses from several classes and uses everything in your power to prevent intruders from succeeding. The neighbour is initially in disguise and tries to lure other players away from the group. As the game page states, "It feels like that scene from The Thing where characters test each other for who's the traitor. Practice your roleplay skills."
Hello Neighbor 2 introduces a new story. You play as Quentin, a local reporter investigating why people have started to mysteriously disappear in Raven Brooks. It offers the same open world gameplay as you explore abandoned houses and the open world of Raven Brooks. The computer opponents are more dynamic and offer a greater challenge.
