How To Play

Getting Started with That’s Not My Neighbor

That’s Not My Neighbor is a game that thrusts players into the role of a vigilant doorman tasked with distinguishing between regular tenants and their doppelgangers. The game tests your observation skills, memory, and decision-making abilities as you strive to keep the building safe from these unwelcome impostors. Here’s how to navigate this game:

The Basics

  • Understand Your Role: You are the last line of defense against the doppelgangers. Your job is to verify each visitor’s identity before allowing them entry.
  • Start the Game: Launch That’s Not My Neighbor and select ‘New Game’ to begin your shift as the building’s doorman.

Gameplay Mechanics

  • Observe: Pay close attention to each visitor that comes to the door. Note their appearance, what they say, and any items they might be carrying.
  • Check Documents: Use the provided documents to verify the identity of each visitor. This includes comparing photos, checking names against the resident list, and looking for any discrepancies.
  • Make Decisions: Decide whether to allow each visitor entry based on your observations and document checks. Be cautious—wrong decisions can have consequences.

Key Strategies

  • Memorize Resident Details: Familiarize yourself with the residents and their quirks. Knowing who is who makes it easier to spot a doppelganger.
  • Look for Inconsistencies: Doppelgangers may slip up in their disguise. Keep an eye out for anything that doesn’t match up with what you know about the resident.
  • Manage the Mystery Items: Occasionally, you’ll encounter items that don’t belong. Use these as clues to question the visitors further.

Advanced Tips

  • Use the Pause Feature: If you need more time to make a decision, don’t hesitate to pause the game. This allows you to review your notes or take a closer look at the documents.
  • Keep an Eye on Patterns: Over time, you might notice patterns in the way doppelgangers attempt to deceive you. Use this knowledge to your advantage.

Encountering Doppelgangers

When you suspect someone is a doppelganger:

  • Question Them: Use any discrepancies you’ve noticed to question their identity. Their responses might give them away.
  • Deny Entry If Unsure: It’s better to turn someone away than to risk letting a doppelganger into the building.

Winning the Game

  • Survive Your Shift: Successfully identify and deny entry to all doppelgangers until your shift ends to win the game.
  • Explore Multiple Endings: The game may have different outcomes based on your performance. Try different strategies in subsequent playthroughs to discover all possible endings.
