History of the game

The first Five Nights at Freddy game was released on August 8, 2014 by Scott Cawthon. He got the idea of the game from the feedback received from his previous family friend Chipper & Sons Lumber Co. The reviewers defined the game "involuntarily terrifying" and described the young beaver as "a frightening night animal". This inspired Scott Cawthon to create an intentionally scary game, Five Nights at Freddy's.

The first three games involve the player working as a nighttime security guard checking security cameras to survive against animatronic characters.

The fourth game uses different gameplay mechanics and is not located in a pizzeria. Instead, it takes place in the house of a child who must defend itself against nightmarish versions of the animatronics.

The fifth game is located in a maintenance facility owned by a sister company of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. However, the player character this time is a technician instead of a nightguard.
