Secret Neighbor is an indie horror video game developed by Dynamic Pixels and published by TinyBuild. The game was released on August 23, 2017. In Secret Neighbor, the player finds themselves moving into a new house across the street from a mysterious neighbor who is behaving in a paranoid manner and seems to be keeping a secret in his basement. The player's task is to break into the neighbor's home and solve a series of puzzles in order to gather the items needed to unlock and access his basement. As the player explores the neighbor's house, they must not be spotted by the mysterious neighbor, or they will be chased down, and if the player is not quick enough to hide or escape, they will be captured. The player can stun the neighbor by throwing objects at him for an easier escape. If the player is caught (or suffers a serious injury), they will be sent back to their own house and will have to break in again. Upon starting again, the player must be more careful, as the neighbor will deduce movements from the last attempt to set up traps.

Gameplay

As the player, your task is to break into the neighbor's home and solve a series of puzzles in order to gather the items needed to unlock and access his basement. As the player explores the neighbor's house, they must not be spotted by the mysterious neighbor, or they will be chased down, and if the player is not quick enough to hide or escape, they will be captured. The player can stun the neighbor by throwing objects at him for an easier escape. If the player is caught (or suffers a serious injury), they will be sent back to their own house and will have to break in again. Upon starting again, the player must be more careful, as the neighbor will deduce movements from the last attempt to set up traps.

Graphics

The graphics of the game are simplistic and pixelated. The game is mostly dark in order to create a sense of creepiness.

Replayability

The game is very replayable due to the randomized nature of the game.

Conclusion

I feel as if the game is a great addition to video game history. "Secret Neighbor" is a game where you play as a young boy trying to sneak into your creepy neighbor's house. You break in, steal his shit, and find out what's in his basement.
