So in this post, I will talk about one interesting AI I know. I invite you to test the free demo (Pre-Alpha) at http://www.helloneighborgame.com/ or watch some YouTube videos to realize how amazing the AI is.
Hello neighbor is a first-person game where you have to sneak into your neighbor’s house to find out what kind of mystery is hiding behind a strange protected door.
In this game, there is only one AI, the neighbor which has several strengths :
- Learn by himself
- Study the player’s tactics
- Undertake counter-actions
- Remember the player’s decisions
- Make plans
In order to see what’s behind the door, you will have to explore the house and find items you need to open the door. There are many objects that can be used to open passages in the house or to bait your neighbor , but so does he.
For example, you can use sleeping pills , hide in wardrobes, throw things to break windows…
This AI is interesting in term of complexity, it will remember what you did, study your tactics but he can still be baited.
He’ll try to secure his territory protecting the most vulnerable spots, for example if you use to pass through the main door, he will put cameras and traps on the ground in front of the main door.
The longer you play – the smarter and more experienced the Neighbor becomes. And the more difficult it is to win…
Since the game is still in development, the AI has several behaviour states and the house keeps looking different. At each release, the AI is smarter and looks more human.
From the Alpha 2, The Neighbor will roam around his home, performing standard household tasks, such as sleeping, eating, and bathing.
Even though, the AI is really smart, there is still some glitches like the character can be stuck in walls.
