“The game has a huge, loyal audience and making an animated series was the next logical step after books and games,” says tinyBuild CEO Alex Nichiporchik who co-produced the pilot. “We wanted to do a proof of concept pilot first to see exactly how many fans would become interested, and how well we can make the transition to 2D animation”.
“The pilot was initially drafted by the creator of the best selling Hello Neighbor book series, Carly Anne West. Then we took that draft and worked with an animation studio and internal writers to make the pilot. Our ideal situation is for the TV show to tie into other game projects, building to the next game in the series.”
About Hello Neighbor
Hello Neighbor is a stealth horror game developed by Dynamic Pixels and published by tinyBuild. The goal of the game is to sneak into your neighbor’s house, successfully get to the basement and uncover a secret. Another feature behind Hello Neighbor’s gameplay is procedural AI: a kid playing a game competes against the Neighbor (operated by an AI algorithm). The AI remembers the paths which the player used in previous attempts and modifies the Neighbor’s actions accordingly.
