Five Nights at Freddy’s (often abbreviated FNaF) is a media franchise based on an indie video game series created, designed, developed, and published by Scott Cawthon for Microsoft Windows, iOS, and Android. The series is centered on the fictional Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, a pastiche of pizza restaurants such as Chuck E. Cheese’s and ShowBiz Pizza Place. The player is a nighttime security guard in the first three games, who must use several tools (such as checking security cameras) and survive animatronic characters which become mobile and homicidal after hours. The fourth game, which has different gameplay mechanics than its predecessors, takes place in the house of a child who must defend against nightmarish versions of the animatronics by closing doors and fleeing on foot. The fifth game is set in a maintenance facility owned by a sister company of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. The player character is a technician (instead of a night guard), who must complete different tasks each night as directed by an AI voice. In the sixth game (with gameplay similar to previous games), the player owns the pizzeria and must decorate it with payable items and work the night shift.
