The independent media franchise Five Nights at Freddy’s (FNaF) was made by Scott Cawthon. The first game with the same name came out on August 8, 2014, and since then, the series has become popular all over the world.
The main series is made up of nine survival horror games that take place in locations related to a made-up pizza chain called “Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza,” named after its mascot, the animatronic bear Freddy Fazbear. In most games, the player takes on the role of a night worker who must use tools like security cameras, lights, doors, and vents to protect themselves from hostile animatronic characters that live in the locations. The story of the series is slowly told through voice recordings, minigames, and Easter eggs hidden in the games.
Spin-off games and other media, like a novel trilogy and an anthology series, are also part of the franchise. Together, they make up an entire fictional universe. The series has a strong fan base that is known for making fan art and fangames, and merchandise for the games is sold all over the world. fnaf
