15 Of The Best Five Nights At Freddy’s Fan Games (2022)

Five Nights at Freddy's is a series of horror games that follows a franchise of "child-friendly" restaurants that take a terrifying turn when their animatronic mascots become haunted. Although the games started out as comparatively simple jump scare-filled fun, the lore of the game has expanded into a knotted mess of insane story beats that the community loves to pick apart.

Naturally, fans have been inspired to create their own games based on the series. There are literally thousands of Five Nights at Freddy's fan games. Some of them are simple, following the expected progression of the story or the mechanics, but others dive into territory no one ever anticipated, and it's absolutely wonderful.

Updated September 22, 2021 by Cameron Roy Hall: The landscape of FNAF has changed drastically in the last several months. Scott Cawthon is out, and Five Nights at Freddy's Security Breach still hasn't been released, but it's allegedly coming later this year. Also, Cawthon decided to bankroll a select few creators who needed an extra nudge to get their FNAF fan games up and running. And who could blame him? A staggering number of the fan games based on his IP are incredibly well polished. We're talking games that, if it weren't for those pesky little copyright laws, would easily make bank on Steam. In honor of all this, we've fleshed out this article a bit to showcase even more of the titles that brought new life into the Five Nights at Freddy's fan game community.

15 The Freddy Files

15 Of The Best Five Nights At Freddy’s Fan Games (1)

From creator Awfy (formerly AwXthority), comes The Freddy Files... not to be confused with the canon guidebook of the same title. It's a charmingly pixelated experience, where the 16-bit player puzzles their way through the pizzeria, in a manner reminiscent of Kings Quest, by finding items and clues while avoiding the dangerous animatronics.

Perhaps the most impressive part of it is the jumpscares, where the pixelation detail is drastically amped up to really show off what Awfy is capable of. There are also segments of the game which are more akin to the mechanics found in the official titles, just to balance it out.

14 Sinister Turmoil Sewers

15 Of The Best Five Nights At Freddy’s Fan Games (2)

From the production team ANGUs-GAMEs, Sinister Turmoil Sewers is an incredible snippet of what could have been, as only a demo was ever released before they canceled the project. The demo alone, however, is enough to feel just how compelling the entire experience was planned to be. The player explores a vast sewer system to perform generator maintenance while avoiding a rabid Mangle and his tattling pal Cupcake. It might only be two animatronics to deal with, but Mangle stampedes through the tunnels at heart-stopping speeds, making him a force to be reckoned with. Trust us, Mangle is enough.

13 Dayshift At Freddy's: Remastered

15 Of The Best Five Nights At Freddy’s Fan Games (3)
(Video) The Best FNAF Fan Games Ever Made & here's why... (Five Nights at Freddy's Top 10)

From creator DirectDoggo, Dayshift at Freddy's: Remastered is less of a horror game and more of a parody visual novel. There's plenty to do and even more to mock in this game that clearly is exhausted by the somber tones of its official counterpart. Visually, the game is a number of stock images and memes spliced together to make something both comical and (hopefully) ironically terrible. There are eleven unique endings to explore, along with an entire cast of familiar faces to taunt and tease. Go ahead; see what happens, see who lives!

12 Super FNAF

15 Of The Best Five Nights At Freddy’s Fan Games (4)

From creator LSFDevelopment, Super Five Night's at Freddy's is a beautifully polished pixelated sidescrolling adventure title that has the player controlling the animatronics from FNAF 1 instead of the "helpless" security guard. The object of the game is to investigate the missing children cases... as the missing children. Super FNAF is lovingly crafted and boasts everything from sidequests to mini-games to even a free-play mode, and handily carries the weight of nostalgia for a vanishing game style with more elegance than a story about dead children piloting furry mechs has any right to.

11 Tyke & Sons Lumber Co

15 Of The Best Five Nights At Freddy’s Fan Games (5)

From creator Mixlas, Tyke & Sons Lumber Co is the perfect kind of meta nonsense that keeps a fan community thriving long after its founder is gone. The game is modeled after Scott Cawthon's pre-FNAF work, specifically a Christian video game called Chipper & Sons Lumber Co, but it quickly derails into a full horror experience as the player fends off the very monsters that Cawthon's reviewers claimed that his original games were full of. Once the penny drops and day fades into night, T&SLC plays exactly like a standard FNAF title. As the game progresses, the atrocities that plague the nighttime gameplay begin to wander into the day...

10 Baby's Nightmare Circus

15 Of The Best Five Nights At Freddy’s Fan Games (6)

From creator Peeblo, Baby's Nightmare Circus is a fan game that is primarily based on Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location and features the characters that were introduced therein, namely Circus Baby. Instead of being set in a pizzeria like the original games, this game is set in a circus.

FNAF: How To Unlock All The Mini-Games In Every Game

(Video) The Best FNAF Fan Games Ever Made - Part 2 (Top 10 Five Nights at Freddy's)

Baby's Nightmare Circus is fairly similar to the original games in that the main objective is to keep the nightmarish animatronics away from you. But in this one, the player is free to explore the different circus tents and it's the flashlight that keeps the creatures at bay.

9 The Joy Of Creation: Story Mode

15 Of The Best Five Nights At Freddy’s Fan Games (7)

From creator Nikson, The Joy of Creation: Story Mode is a fan game that is based on the original Five Nights at Freddy's games, but with a really unique twist. Instead of being set in a fictional world like the original games, this one is set in the real world and stars the creator of the franchise: Scott Cawthon. Players control Cawthon as he tries to find the horrors that have invaded his home and survive through the night before it's too late.

8 Jolly 3

15 Of The Best Five Nights At Freddy’s Fan Games (8)

From creator IvanG, Jolly 3 is the third game in a series of fan games based on the Filipino restaurant chain Jollibee's. It breaks FNAF tradition by existing chronologically after the former titles in the fan franchise. It's also considered to be the favorite of most in the community. Jolly 3 is divided up into chapters, similarly to how the original games are divided into nights.

The game is set 30 years after the events at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. A horror attraction called Fazbear's Fright has opened, and it seems to have awoken an evil spirit that is now descending on the abandoned Jolly Entertainment Factory...

7 Fredbear's Fright

15 Of The Best Five Nights At Freddy’s Fan Games (9)

From creator Garrett McKay, Fredbear's Fright is a fan game that takes on the rumors and legends about what happened at the restaurants in the original series and puts a unique twist on them. In this game, a series of horror attractions have opened that are based on Freddy's Fazzbear's Pizzeria's dark, "fictional" history. Fredbear's Fright features the same locations and characters from FNAF, but that's where the similarities stop. In this game, the player is able to explore the area freely.

6 Five Nights At Freddy's Reborn

15 Of The Best Five Nights At Freddy’s Fan Games (10)

From creator Goldguy0710, Five Nights at Freddy's Reborn is unique in that it's not actually a brand new game or story. Instead, it's basically a remake of the original FNAF, but with some major gameplay tweaks and changes that make it a lot more engaging, fun, and totally more terrifying.

Goldguy0710 added new jump scares, camera glitches, and sound effects to the game. It also gives the animatronics new abilities like being able to move the cameras and peeking at the player in a way that isn't as obvious. All the while, it keeps the same terrifying plot and gameplay.

5 POPGOES

15 Of The Best Five Nights At Freddy’s Fan Games (11)

From a group of creators that started as a subreddit called r/2124, POPGOES is a game set in a new animatronic-based restaurant called The Popgoes Pizzeria. A mystery figure named Fritz took over the animatronics and opened his own restaurant. The player controls the night security guard who learns pretty quickly after starting that Fritz wasn't just trying to entertain families and sell pizza when he opened shop. POPGOES mixes the traditional FNAF mechanics with brand new point-and-click concepts, so there are a lot of creative ways that the players can stop the animatronics from attacking them.

4 Those Nights At Rachel's

15 Of The Best Five Nights At Freddy’s Fan Games (12)

From creator Nickson, Those Nights at Rachel's is a FNAF fan game that is set in a new rival location called DnR that has been competing with Freddy Fazbear's Pizza for a long time. In the story, DnR has been able to thrive since the closing of Freddy Fazzbear's Pizzeria.

In Those Nights at Rachel's, the player controls a night security guard who was hired by DnR to make sure that all the animatronics at the restaurant stay in their place at night instead of trying to come out to perform after the restaurant has closed. Unfortunately, the restaurant has a very dark secret.

3 Five Nights At Candy's

15 Of The Best Five Nights At Freddy’s Fan Games (13)

From creator Emilmacko, Five Nights at Candy's is a fan game set in a new location that competed with Freddy Fazbear's Pizza until it ultimately shut down. Unfortunately, the animatronics at this competing restaurant are no less haunted and terrifying than Freddy, Chica, and the other animatronics that called Freddy Fazbear's Pizza home. Five Nights at Candy's is the first in a series of two fan games that feature some original and terrifying animatronics.

2 Jollibee's

15 Of The Best Five Nights At Freddy’s Fan Games (14)

From creator IvanG, Jollibee's was the fourth game in the Jolly fan game franchise. While it was an incredibly popular title, Jollibee's has since been taken down for copyright infringement. Apparently, not all fast food chains enjoy name association with evil animatronic murderers. When it was playable, however, it was essentially a reskinned version of the original Five Nights at Freddy's game with Jollibee-themed animatronics instead of more evil versions of the Chuck E. Cheese mascots.

1 One Night At Flumpty's 2

15 Of The Best Five Nights At Freddy’s Fan Games (15)

While a lot of the Five Nights at Freddy's games are on the more somber and intense side, Jonochrome and Clickteam's One Night at Flumpty's is slightly more of a quirky, funny game. Now, it's definitely still creepy and full of jump scares, but it's a lot less serious and lore-driven than most titles. In this game, the player has been kidnapped by a cartoon character named Flumpty Bumpty, a comically horrific egg monster, who wants to play a deadly game of hide-and-seek. It's up to the player to try to stop Flumpty and his friends from coming into the room... or else.
