The Elusive Story of Five Night’s At Freddy’s
In august 2014, Scott Cawthon released Five nights at Freddy’s. In the game, you play as a security guard hired to work at night in a pizzeria.

At first glance, the games just seem to avoid killer animatronics. However, there is a deep rabbit hole one can fall into in terms of the game’s lore. Five nights at Freddy’s is convoluted to say the least. Only the most discerning players have found the hidden story.
Newspaper clippings, cryptic notes and the coach’s voicemail reveal the pizzeria’s dark past. Missing children, traumatic brain damage, and rotting bodies are sort of the least of your worries, as the animatronics are there to unequivocally catch you.
One thing that put Five nights at Freddy’s apart was the format. Instead of having a weapon to defend themselves with, or even the ability to run away from, players are stuck in one place. The only action that can be taken is to watch the security camera and close the door. If an animatronic gets too close, those are the only options. Truly, the lack of player agency in the game made it a unique and terrifying experience.
This is only the beginning of the story, as the series progresses the true story of what happened at the pizzeria expands and also becomes convoluted.
