Five Nights at Freddy’s is a series of horror games that follow a chain of “child-friendly” restaurants that become terrifying when their animatronic mascots become haunted. The games are called “Five Nights at Freddy’s.” As time went on, the game’s lore got more complicated, and now it’s a knotted mess of crazy story lines that the community loves to look at.
Obviously, fans have been inspired to make their own games based on the show. There are a lot of fan games for Five Nights at Freddy’s. Some of them are simple and follow the expected path of the story or the game’s mechanics. Others go into new territory that no one had ever thought of, and it’s wonderful.
1. The Freddy Files
Awfy, who used to be called AwXthority, has made a new book called The Freddy Files. It’s not to be confused with the canon guidebook of the same name. It’s a charmingly pixelated game in which the 16-bit player makes their way through the pizzeria in a way that’s similar to Kings Quest. They find items and clues while avoiding the dangerous animatronics.
Perhaps the most impressive thing about it is the jumpscares, where the pixelation detail is sped up to show off what Awfy can do. There are also parts of the game that use the same mechanics as the official games, just to make sure it’s not all bad.
2. Sinister Turmoil Sewers
Sinister Turmoil Sewers was made by the production team ANGUs-GAMEs. Only a demo was released before they cancelled the project. This is a small taste of what the game could have been. The demo, on the other hand, is enough to show how interesting the whole thing was planned to be. The player goes through a huge sewer system to do generator maintenance while avoiding a rabid Mangle and his friend Cupcake. In spite of the fact that there are only two animatronics to deal with, Mangle runs through the tunnels at heart-stopping speeds, making him a force to be reckoned with. You can trust us. Mangle will be enough.
3. Dayshift At Freddy’s: Remastered
DirectDogo, the person who made Dayshift at Freddy’s: Remastered is not as scary as it used to be. It’s more like a parody visual novel. Many things to do and mock can be found in this game, which is clearly tired of the sombre tones in its official game. The game looks like a bunch of stock images and memes mixed together to make something both funny and (hopefully) bad. There are eleven different endings to look at, as well as a whole group of people you know and love to taunt and tease. What will happen? Who will live?
4. Super FNAF
To make the game, LSFDevelopment made Super Five Night’s at Freddy’s. It’s an adventure game that lets you control the animatronics from FNAF 1 instead of a “helpless” security guard. The goal of the game is to look into the cases of missing children… as the missing children. Super FNAF is made with a lot of care and includes everything from side quests to mini-games to even a free-play mode. It manages to carry the weight of nostalgia for a game style that’s gone away with more grace than a story about dead children piloting furry mechs has any right to.
5. Tyke & Sons Lumber Co
In Tyke & Sons Lumber Co, the creator Mixlas comes up with the perfect type of jokes that keep a fan group going long after the creator is gone. Before FNAF, Scott Cawthon made a Christian video game called Chipper & Sons Lumber Co. The game is based on that game but quickly turns into a horror game as the player fights off the same monsters that Cawthon’s reviewers said his games were full of. At night, T&SLC is just like any other FNAF game. As the game goes on, the things that happen at night start to happen during the day.
6. Baby’s Nightmare Circus
From the game’s creator, Peeblo, Baby’s Nightmare Circus is a fan game that is mostly based on Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location and features Circus Baby. A circus instead of a pizzeria is where this game is set instead.
Baby’s Nightmare Circus is a lot like the original games in that the main goal is to keep the scary animatronics away from you. However, in this game, the player is free to go into the different circus tents, and the flashlight is what keeps the creepy crawlies away from them.
7. The Joy Of Creation: Story Mode
It comes from Nikson. One of the games called The Joy of Creation: Story Mode was made by fans. It is based on the original five nights at freddy’s games, but with a lot of new ideas. If you want to play this game, you don’t have to live in a world that doesn’t exist. It’s set in the real world and stars the man who made the games: Scott Cawthon. As Cawthon tries to find the horrors that have invaded his home and make it through the night before it’s too late, players take control of him and help him.
8. Jolly 3
Jollibee’s fan games made by IvanG are called “Jollibee’s Jolly 3.” This game is the third in a series of fan games made by IvanG. It breaks FNAF tradition by being released after the previous games in the fan franchise. It’s also thought to be the favourite of the majority of people in the neighbourhood. There are chapters in Jolly 3. The original games were broken up into nights, just like in Jolly 3.
Thirty years after the events at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, the game is set in. If you want to be scared, you can go to a horror attraction called Fazbear’s Fright. It seems to have awakened an evil spirit that is now coming down on the abandoned Jolly Entertainment Factory.
9. One Night At Flumpty’s
There was a new game called One Night at Flumpty’s that came out in 2015, less than a year after the first Five Nights at Freddy’s game came out. To make fun of the original game, Flumpty Bumpty is the main character in this game. He is an egg. The game was made by Jonochrome.
The goal of the game is similar to that of FNAF, where the player must open and close security doors with limited power. ONAF grew in popularity due to its satirical commentary, and several more in the series have been developed since. It has also joined the Fazbear Fanverse, which is a group of fan-made FNAF games that the game’s developer, Scott Cawthon, is going to fund and put out.
Another member of the Fazbear Fanverse is POPGOES. Scott Cawthon is behind this one. The first game in the POPGOES series was released in 2016. Kane Carter was the first person to make it. POPGOES Arcade and POPGOES Evergreen are also part of this spin-off series.
As it stands, there is no canon in POPGOES. The story only takes into account the first three Five Nights at Freddy’s games. A point-and-click game called Strings is also part of the game. The player is an AI robot named Strings. Often, the game refers to characters from the original games. Fritz, for example, was a night-time security guard in Custom Night of FNAF 2, where he worked.
11. The Joy Of Creation: Reborn
Another popular game for FNAF fans is The Joy of Creation: Reborn, which lets you make things again. This game is based on its predecessor, The Joy of Creation, which was made by Nikson and released in 2016. Also, the popularity of this title led to more sequels in the series, as well as a spot in the Fazbear Fanverse.
Created: Reborn allowed for new features that were not in the original. This is called “the joy of making.” Fans were excited about the fact that the player and the animatronics could roam freely around the game. Players were filled with terror by the idea of being chased by characters such as Ignited Freddy and Ignited Chica, new versions of familiar animatronics found in the original series.
