Five Nights at Freddy's is the result of throwing Chuck E. Cheese, Night Trap, and the Weeping Angels into a blender. The end result is a bombshell of a horror game that manages to pull off suspense, terror, and multitasking all at the same time. For a while, you could not escape this game.

It also loves using jumpscares as a form of punis-

Debugging Material



To no one's surprise, "test" is a counter used for debugging. This was used to test the length of Foxy's "locked" state whenever he is viewed on the cameras, which always selects a random value between 50 and 1,050 every ten milliseconds. It should be noted that values that always decrease like these are not calculated in seconds but frames instead (unless it is tied to a timer event). Since Five Nights at Freddy's runs at a constant 60FPS, this would mean that Foxy's locked state can last anywhere from a minimum of 0.83 seconds to a maximum of 17.5 seconds if the cameras are not being watched.

Cheats and Debugging Codes

Key Effect
C + D + 0 (v1.0) Skips the player straight to 6AM while in any level.
C + D + Numpad+ (v1.1+) Skips the player straight to 6AM while in any level.
C + D + 1 Unlocks Night 6 and grants the first star if pressed on the main menu. This is reset upon dying or closing the game.
C + D + 2 Unlocks Custom Night and grants the second star if pressed on the main menu. This is reset upon dying or closing the game.


Cut-Off Sounds

Generic Jumpscare Scream

The infamous animatronic scream actually lasts for a full five seconds. It is actually a sound byte from an old audio library released in the 1990's. The sound itself was sampled from the 1981 horror movie Inseminoid (referred to as Horror Planet in the United States release). While the game does use the full sound, it will normally get cut off after the first second. However, pausing the game during a jumpscare by pressing CTRL and P allows you to hear the full sound in-game.

Golden Freddy Jumpscare Scream

Golden Freddy's scream (which is actually a slower, distorted version of the main animatronic scream) lasts for about 16 seconds, but is only played for a single second before the game closes itself. Pressing CTRL and P during this jumpscare allows you to once again hear the full sound.

Revision Differences

Early Access Builds


Built on an unknown date. Private early access beta. Seems to be identical to v1.0, however this version is currently lost.
