Announcing Hello Neighbor Modding Competition - HelloMods! With $5k in cash prizes
You've clamored for it, you've drowned our Twitter DMs about it, and stalked us all the way to our real-life homes for it. No, really - imagine going out of your house to work, and 4 kids are standing there holding hands singing a Hello Neighbor song. This happened.
It's finally here! We're announcing the Hello Neighbor Modding Competition HelloMods.com We've partnered up with ModDB to giveaway cash prizes and games for the best mods created based on the newly released Hello Neighbor Mod Kit.
$5k in cash prizes
Fully moddable version of Beta 3 of Hello Neighbor
Available via he Unreal Engine Installer
Any coverage regarding the modding event is greatly appreciated. I personally can't wait until someone makes a sewer level with a clown chasing the player. The way the Mod Kit is setup allows modders to create whole new levels, puzzles, and use the self-learning AI. To give a simple example, I made a level that has a lot of doors. Built like a labyrinth puzzle. I made he Neighbor spawn in the map via a trigger set to one of he doors. Since he AI is programmed to notice and investigatte map changes, he quickly picked up my trail and followed my footsteps. From that point onwards the level plays like an anxiety inducing chase. Note that as of today, mods can be played via the Unreal Editor. Some time next week we will release an updated Beta 3 build that allows mods to be played in the standalone game. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
