HELLO NEIGHBOR MAKES SENSE NOW! | Hello Neighbor Hide and Seek


Hello Neighbor Hide and seek is the latest
installment of the mysterious mystery fest that features this fine, mustachioed gentleman. Throughout our Hello Neighbor journey we have
taken in all sorts of terrifying things such as a basement meant to trap a child and fool
them into thinking they’re NOT in a cage of sorts. Hence the weird reality simulations that really
aren’t too convincing. Anyway since the very beginning we’ve asked
the question…why is our neighbor building this monstrosity of a Dr. Seuss house? Carpentry can be a cathartic hobby but this
is ridiculous! You may recall that several moons ago we here
at Treesicle brought you a two part SYNK on the FINISHED GAME that was Hello Neighbor. We concluded and pondered all sorts of spooky
things that tied together a rather convincing narrative if I do say so myself. I’d recommend checking those videos out
if you haven’t seen them yet or if you need a refresher. I’ll be going over some info from them but
definitely not going too deep. I’ll just be summarizing a bit. Speaking of which, we pieced together the
neighbor’s family’s backstory…including but not limited to…the wife died in a car
crash, the son killed the daughter in some kind of horrible, pushy accident that involved
gravity, and the shadowman is our protagonist’s fear of the neighbor and his house manifested
into a misty, ethereal entity. There were some Zak Bagans references too. Duh. But how much of this was actually true? Well gentle viewer the answer to these questions
and ones not yet asked lie within the dream-like and slightly poopy splendor of Hello Neighbor
Hide and Seek the…the demo. Fetch quests were never so revealing probably. HIT IT! Like any story, let’s start at the beginning. The opening of Hide and Seek shows this is
clearly a prequel. The Neighbor’s family is happy, healthy
and not-at-all dead. The mother is cooking breakfast, the children
are playing and the neighbor-husband himself is…on the phone. Hmmmm. Tiny Build knows this update would be picked
apart by groundbreaking YouTube channels like ourselves so surely the neighbors actions
during this scene are not to be glossed over. While the rest of his family is engaging in
loving togetherness, our neighbor is taking a call. Presumably a business call. Such a scene paints the picture of a father
who wasn’t quite there. Likely he showed his love by providing but
being with the family is just as important. Also he’s wearing his black gloves and that’s
pretty weird. Anyway, while the mother cares for her kids
and the dad is talking business the children retreat into their imagination during a rousing
game of hide and seek. A likely mundane room is transformed into
an African oasis type deal and naturally what follows is sixteen fetch quests. One after the other. Whoop whoop! You’ll notice the sign with nine animal
plushies and an arrow pointing to a big ol’ basket. The logical implication of this is that one
must obtain nine plushies and place them in said basket. But then you may say…” Grant if there’s nine plushies on the sign
then why did you say there’s sixteen fetch quests?” The answer is…I…I don’t know. There’s seven additional duplicate animals
you’ve gotta find and throw into the basket because reasons. Maybe that doesn’t make any sense but don’t
worry! This here clock on the wall keeps track of
how many you’ve collected and how many more you need! Nine plushies on the sign, sixteen to collect,
and all this is kept track with a clock that goes up to twelve. As clocks do. BECAUSE SCREW NUMBERS. THE NUMERIC CHAOS OF HELLO NEIGHBOR HIDE AND
SEEK ONLY DEEPENS THE MYSTERY. Numbers are just an abstraction of the human
mind used to quantify the universe anyway so only losers take them seriously why should
they be consistent? Moving on, the daughters thumb is super weird
and gross which isn’t that important but it’s kinda funny. Also if you get glitched between a rock and
hard place don’t hesitate to hit the “I am stuck” button. And further still, I forgot to mention that
during all this hunting and fetching the brother is trying to catch you…a la Hide and Seek…and
if he succeeds he’ll take an animal or two or five out of the basket and place them randomly
around the map…wasting sand in the hour-glass that is a metaphor for you life. We’re getting DEEP people! But we ain’t stopping here. Oh no. While the lovely oasis doesn’t have much
in terms of plot development, we do get a cutscene of a raven picking up the daughter
cuz birds are strong AF. Alright! So far we’ve got a father who isn’t there,
a two children, nine different plushies, sixteen in total, a 12 hour clock and…a raven. GASP! WAIT A MINUTE. Zero plus two minus 9 plus 16 divided by 12
plus 1 is…1.75. WHICH IS ABOUT HOW MANY POUNDS THE AVERAGE
RAVEN WEIGHS. Hnnnnnnng. THIS CAN’T BE. This raven means something. Something…diabolical. We KNOW the daughter was killed sometime after
Hide and Seek Took place. Clearly this raven…is an omen. A SIGN OF TERRIBLE THINGS TO COME. Like death. And dark witchcraft. Just ask Edgar Allan Poe. About the death part. And behold! After putting all 16 animals in the basket
it’s eatin’ time. Time to eat bread with some spoons and…wait
a minute…SOMEONE IS WATCHING US. And then they fly away. I KNOW IT’S YOU RAVEN YOU CAN’T HIDE FROM
ME. DOER OF DARK WITCHCRAFT. And wouldn’t you know it! YouTuber and l33t h4x0r Ertyez verified that
a black flying demon is indeed watching us. Check out his video in the link down below…there’s
all kinds of weird, hilarious stuff he finds. Anywho what’s odd is ravens have been referenced
before in hello neighbor. For instance, after our protagonist gets evicted
and is driving back to the neighborhood from his effed up childhood, there is a bunch ‘em
perched on a sign. Probably cawing. AND in the start menu to this game we see
a doll hanging onto a shelf for dear, inanimate life as a raven stares at it. We know from previous games this doll is representative
of the daughter…we go over it in the stories you never knew. This further confirms the daughter falls to
her death at some point…which is sad stuff. Not to mention we also see in the trailer
for the full release of Hide and Seek the father and daughter looking super sad which
leads me to believe someone died before the daughter did. I’m guessing the sadness on these two faces
is caused by the wife’s death because in the roller coaster dream-sequence from the
original game we see the brother at the controls of the coaster which has little pushy hands
that ultimately push the daughter to her death…symbolically. Which is representative of reality! So the brother kills the daughter which means
he can’t be dead yet. It’s hard to kill when you’re dead. I would know. It’s odd the brother isn’t in this trailer
at all but maybe he’s just playing guitar in his room or something. Recall in our Story You Never Knews we believe
the brother to be the last family member alive besides the neighbor. He isn’t associated with raven in this new
game so I think it’s safe to say it’s confirmed he ain’t dead. He just felt super guilty for killing his
sister and ran away. So to sum this all up, the daughter is confirmed
to get killed because ravens are symbolic of death, the wife is confirmed to be dead
because of all the sadness from the trailer and the brother is likely still alive. Also the neighbor is probably a father who
works too much and wears creepy black gloves for no reason and his family was once indeed
happy and not dead. Honestly not too many answers in Hide and
Seek but remember this is a demo and there will be a reveal on August 30th. In spite of some bizarre numeric choices and
unfortunate thumb something rather I can’t wait for this game! I’ll be at PAX West when it does come out
but you better believe Ryan and I will be playing this bad boy either during the convention
or after we get back. I feel I’ve summed up everything from this
installment but let me know if I missed anything. I guess there are the chin swirls that seem…genetic…the
neighbor and his kids all go in the same direction. Not protagonist’s chin swirl tho. He’s got his own stuff going on. Weird stuff but I dig the attention to detail. Anywho, let me know if I missed anything and
while you’re at it check out our playthrough of this demo. I assure you there was no salt. I’m Grant…and I’ll see you next time. Bye!

  1. I think the neighbor is a carpenter… *A failed one*… dunno what tells me that..

    the shapes of the wonky furnitures, the overuse of wood in his house, some of his tools, AND HIS GLOVES

  2. I've got two questions. What was the neighbors job and what happened to his friends and the people he worked for?

  3. Collect 9 plushies, but there are 16… 9 of them are the girl's, the other 7, her brother's – 9 and 7 perhaps believable ages of the two children?

  4. but what about the floating mannequins in the hallway and the mannequin that attacked the neighbor and the child screaming in alpha 2 and what about all the theme park stuff? and the basement that once had a satanic ritual i think the previous alphas arent just alphas theyre the neighbors old homes and if the alpha two giant hole and boarded off ladder matter to the story then this alpha 2 stuff probably does to and what do golden apples even matter to the story are they just a running gag? and what about the scene with the tuba and what about the door we could never see what was inside in alpha 2/3 in the basement and what about the teddy bears and the drawings in alpha 2/3 Ugh there are so many plotholes i cant even count none the less this is awesome your awesome i rlly hope to get answers to my questions soon probably not though and thank you tressicle for making these awesome vids and thank you…yes you person reading this…for reading this comment all the way through

  5. What if the protagonist wasn’t talen as a child Becuase he saw too
    Much…

    But Becuase he’s the son after running away and being adopted?

    But at the same time I guess this doesn’t make sense in some places but still..

  6. I feel like the neighbor put the son in the basement to think everything was ok or something but then he noticed everything was fake then ran away (also cause he killed his sister) then the neighbor felt guilty so he locked the basement for no one to see what he done. Ps. Just an idea

  7. At 6:45 could the brother not have killed the daughter via his own death. As in she gets depressed as in she attempts to commit suicde by jumping off a building? Probably doesn’t fit but just saying it’s a possibility

  8. ive just beat hello neighbour on my xbox account and the last achievement is called like farther and son after facing of with the shadow im saying the shadow is (lets call the main character bob to make it quick) is bobs dad and he was very mean to bob as a kid hitting him destroying the house over him and in act 1 and 2 i think they are and dream or a memory of bobs childhood thats why there is no people or bob has no mum or dad in the house that is why in act 3 we see bob wake up goes back to his old house then he sleeps and has a nightmare again over exaggerating the act 2 house and with shadow been in all the fear rooms that could make it the dad trapped bob in a shop or in a room unable to reach the light or bob got bullied at school because he told someone what happened with the neighbour and i think i can also explain where the neighbour is in act 3 hes in jail because in act 3s shadow boss fight at the end the neighbour is trapped in a house a cell and that shadow is the boy the neighbours son locked in a room a basement and the neighbour is now in jail for kidnapping or the shadow could be bob but that would not make sence like this if you agree i just wrote this because i had to tell someone this is a theory not talking about the neighbour but about the kid or man i nicknamed him bob for this comment

  9. you know for a second there I thought the person that we were playing with you know the guy that gets in the house you're scared run away and the guy that's sleeping and have a dream and see the black figure all I'm saying is that I thought the person that where you're playing with the Son

  10. The son did not run away the neighbor locked him up, he was the guy who broke something after you escape act 2
    The neighbor used the “simming” signs to hide the murder and the racked that he locked up his son

  11. I just have 1 question:
    Why would the brother have a reason to kill his sister in the 1st place
    Also, I think I know why the brother wasn't in the trailer with the neighbor and the sister…
    He was creating his plan to kill the sister

  12. Hold up one diddly-darn minute….
    I used the same track for a video project just recently
    What’s with this small world

  13. The crow was also with the shadow man,so it the crow was seen watching the kids the shadow man and the crow have been stalking the kids and family.

  14. Wait what if the brother is dead but like…. He's still here. As that shadowy thing the neighbor keeps trying to lock up?

  15. I've seen so many theories about this game. The closest one in my opinion to the truth was that the wife was killed in a car wreck, the son later became supper depressed and angry, causing him to later push his sister off of some high place. I heard it was the roof but I could be wrong. The Neighbor knew he killed her and burried her outside his house hence, the dug up spot in his yard. After that he locked his son up in basement which is who the main character hears/sees, that's when the Neigh. catches him and locks him down there too. Until, the main character boy faces his fear of the Neigh. and attempts to escape which he does. The Neighbor put up the Simming posters to make it seem like his kids were missing but they weren't. Also, the shadows were suppose to represent fear. For the main character it was the Neighbor and the Neighbors fear was of losing the only family he had left. The whole game is just amazingly thought out.👍😁

  16. So like it really jumped out at me that the girl has a very small spoon and the boy seems fairly proud of the fact his spoon is bigger.

  17. In the first hello neighbour you play as the boy who killed his sister. This explains why he recognises the place and will also explain the neighbour chasing you and trying to keep you out of the house. Because he is afraid you will kill him too. The shadow figure is the bad things about the character you play as. The boy has just decided to face his evil and rid himself of it. By going back to the place it formed.

  18. Makes me think of the new Winchester mantion where Mrs Winchester built the mantion until she died. It is so full of illogical structures and she built even a seance room. She did all of this because Mr. Winchester made the guns and she was talking to a Medium who said that she can make her family and the people who were killed by the guns if she built a mantion until the day she dies.

    The neighbors house is illogical but he keeps building. They are almost parallel stories

  19. When he references Edger Allan Poe, I think I might be the only one who gets it, because I read his story, "The Tale Tell Heart" in school. It talks about this man who seems crazy, and ends up murdering an old man. The reason? He was driven mad from what he calls, The Evil Eye, which is just the eye of the, presumably blind, old man. He also refers to it as a raven eye, hence the reference.

  20. I think the brother is the protagonist because
    A) they look fairly similar to each other
    B) we know the main character had some kind of messed up childhood so maybe it’s cuz he lived in this hell house where he killed his sister and ran away

  21. 5:05 I'm personally offended also the pentagram is not a bad symbol only the upside down version the right side up actully means protection

  22. I've been waiting for the next hello neighbor theory, I heccin cried when watching the hide and seek trailer(don't judge m8) I heccin love this game :∆

  23. There's a book it that reveals the neighbors last name is Peterson and his son and daughter's names are Arron and Mya and the main characters name is nick Roth and him and Arron were friends and the neighbour was revealed to have been a former civil engineer for theme parks but the last one he made killed a friend of his daughter (also the theme park was for the golden Apple factory which is the factory from the factory minigame (also Arron and Nick visited the factory to make a fart synthesizer) ok that's to much for my fingers sorry!)

  24. There is one thing. While this has probably been seen already, but in the PS4 release gameplay trailer, you can see the entirety of the neighbor's wife

    Also you need to look at the game again since it's finally fully released

  25. at 3:20 he said "because REASONS!" that's what my friend says like all the time .-. why do people just say because reasons now?

  26. Hmm… The protagonist (adult) in Hello Neighbor looks very similar.. Very similar! To the son of the Neighbor. What do you guys think?

  27. u think you know the game butt you don't how do you explane when the boy wants to play as a fire u play as a fire fighter she pots her hat on wait watch it slowey to see

  28. In Edgar Allen Poe’s raven it didn’t mean death it stood for sorrow of the lose of a loved one and having to grieve with that lose

  29. Sonic 3🚹💣💣💣💣💎🎉💎🚹🚹🚹🚹🚹🚹🚹🚹🚹🚹🚹🚹🚹🚹🚹🚹🚹🚹🚹🚹💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💤⚾⚽⚾⚾⚾⚾⚾⚾⚾😈⚾😴😴😴😨👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻👻🎉⚾😃😄😍😍

  30. Mom:what the heck are you watching?

    Me: it’s not inappropriate it’s awesome!

    Mom:yeah I know…I wanted to watch

    Me: WELL jOiN IN

  31. Those aren’t ravens, those are crows. Ravens are bigger than that and have scruffy feathers on the back of the head and neck

  32. Wait wait wait so if the daughter died from falling and the brother fell too does that mean that the brother committed suicide from guilt?

  33. He didn't run away. The neighbour just wants to keep his last family member safe. So he kept him in the basement and put missing posters of his children.
