Five Nights at Freddy’s (FNaF) is an indie survival horror video game. It was made by Scott Cawthon and is powered by Clickteam Fusion. The first game was released August 8, 2014. The game takes place in the fictional pizza restaurant, Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. The player acts as a night security guard with the aim of keeping safe from the animatronic animal characters that are stated to be "malfunctioning" (though later games imply a more supernatural reason). To complete the levels of the game called Nights - the player must keep the antagonists away from the guard's office, using mechanical doors, lights, and a CCTV camera panel. The animatronic characters in the first game of the series are named Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie, Chica, Foxy and Golden Freddy.

In November 2014, a prequel, Five Nights at Freddy's 2 was released. In 2015, Five Nights at Freddy's 3 and Five Nights at Freddy's 4 were released. A Five Nights at Freddy's RPG called FNAF World was released on 2016. A fifth game, Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location was released the same year. A feature-changing game called Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator was made in 2017. In 2018, yet another game was released called Ultimate Custom Night featuring almost every character from the series, including some fan characters. In 2019, Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted was released with it’s own DLC 'Five Nights at Freddy's: Curse of Dreadbear' which included scenarios with animatronics. In 2021, the massive project Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach was made with the help from Steel Wool Studios being an Open world game.
