Five Nights at Freddy’s is a game centered around a job opportunity at a children’s pizzeria, akin to establishments like Chuck E. Cheese’s. However, the twist is that the pizzeria is inhabited by murderous animatronic animal singers, and your task is to monitor them through a network of surveillance cameras placed throughout the building. Additionally, you must be vigilant about managing your power level, as it depletes as time elapses, adding an extra layer of challenge and tension to the gameplay.” Don’t forget to watch The Burial movie.
