Fans of horror games can now look forward to the release of the new indie game My Friendly Neighborhood, developed by the renowned indie horror publisher DreadXP.
The company announced the game’s release date during the PC Gaming Show, revealing that the spooky game will be available on Windows PC on July 18, 2023. Additionally, it will be released on PlayStation 4|5 and Xbox One and Series S|X at a later date.
The game offers players a unique experience as they step into the boots of Gordon, a repairman tasked with shutting down the sudden broadcast of a canceled children’s TV show named The Friendly Neighborhood.
An educational program featuring a colorful cast of kooky puppets, The Friendly Neighborhood was once hugely popular among children.
However, its popularity waned, and the studio ultimately shut down.
But now, the show’s characters are back on the air, behaving in an unusual way, and it is up to Gordon to put a stop to it.
My Friendly Neighborhood offers a mix of action and adventure, perfect for horror fans looking for solid and surprising scares rather than gore.
There may not be any dead bodies or dismemberment, but the game guarantees an intense and painful experience as players engage in battles with their new puppet pals who demand hugs.
The game features non-linear survival horror gameplay where players must explore a variety of diverse environments while solving puzzles and using unique weapons like the Rolodexer.
Players will have to navigate through Cardboard Crayon Halls and BTS Ray’s Workshop maze-like areas while following directions and checking their maps.
My Friendly Neighborhood demo is already available for download on Steam before the full version hits PC in July 2023.
Developed by brothers John and Evan Szymanski and published by DreadXP, this game promises to be one of the more unique and intriguing horror games on the market.
