Welcome to Hello Neighbor 2: Alternative Reality!

We are ecstatic to announce our new game in the works. Hello Neighbor 2: Alternative Reality is a reimagined and remastered version of the infamous Alpha 2. Our goal with this game is to provide a unique experience, unlike any other fan game out there. Usually, every fan game only goes off the original concepts and doesn’t try to do anything new. But this game takes the original HN2’s concept and flips it on its head, and we’re excited to eventually share with you what we have in store.

I think you’ve noticed I’ve said “we” a lot as well, and that’s because we’re building up a team for this game! Unlike the original HNAR, which I made almost entirely myself, we have three other people here. We have Jacket (The Crowinator) who’s the lead level and game designer and is the brains behind the entire project. We have Jay (jaythefrog71) and Forrt (FORRT9513) who are mainly the brains behind the AI. We are all working together to ensure that the game will be of the utmost quality, and we’re planning to expand pretty soon as well.

I know that you have a lot of questions about this game, so I’ve written out some frequently asked questions + answers in the words of the developers for you to understand a bit better.

Q: Is HN2AR a remake of Alpha 2?
A: No, the game is not a remake but rather a reimagining. That means the game is based off Alpha 2, but it’s not a recreation at all.

Q: When is HN2AR releasing?
A: The game will release when we deem it ready. The game is currently very early in development so don’t expect anything right now.

Q: What locations & characters will be in the game?
A: All of the characters and locations from HN2 will be in this game including some new and exclusive areas.

Q: Is the game releasing in alpha and beta builds?
A: No. Instead, the game will be divided up into chapters and then be released chapter by chapter.

Q: Is the game a sequel to the original HNAR?
A: No, the game is not connected to HNAR at all. It’s rather going with the same theme with it being kind of an alternate universe, so it’s borrowing the same name.

Q: Are you still gonna update the original HNAR?
A: Most likely not. I consider HNAR to be finished and I don’t currently have any plans to do any major update to the game. All focus will instead be put towards this game and any future projects.

Q: When should we expect a demo?
A: We are expecting to get a demo out in the coming months, so keep in touch with the devlog.

      I don’t currently have any plans to continue updating HNAR with new content since I have considered it finished. All focus will instead be put towards newer projects.

      Most of the characters from the original will feature in some way. I can’t say more than that right now though.
