Starts in the Show Stage with Ms. Pac-man. He walks at a normal pace. His locations are Show Stage==>Lunch Area==>Entrance==>Janitor's Closet==>West Hallway==>West Corner==>Left Blind Spot.

If you flash the lights on him he will deactive the door for a few seconds and drain some of your power. If you hear a stomping noise, It indicates he is in one of the blind spots. Close one of the doors on him or he will jumpscare you, regardless if your monitor is up or not.

Phone Call

Hello? Hello! This is a recorded message to help you with your job. I will serve as your guide here and tell what to do. Before you get all relaxed, there's something you need to watch out for, the animatronics! Since we are only opened from 12AM to 11PM and our animatronics suffer some problems if they aren't active for more than 7 hours, we let them wander around at night and to check that they don't do any mess we need someone to distract them overtime. They will detect your noises and try to reach you. It may sound fun and all, but if they happen to come in contact with you, they will glitch out and rip you apart in the process because of their super-strength. However, we installed electric doors to protect you from them if they happen to appear in one of the office's blind spots, you can active them by pressing the red buttons in each of the entrances. Since it's dark here and the only source of light is the light in the office, we also installed light buttons so you can see if one of them is in the blind spots. Whoever, watch out for the power meter, it drains everytime you close a door, use the lights and check the monitor. If the power meter reaches zero, the location's electric energy will automatically shut down. It serves as a power saver so you don't waste too much power in your shift. Now one more thing, every once in a while, check the Game Area camera feed. That's where the Space Invader animatronic is. He works like a flying claw in a claw machine and can be controlled by kids at the day by a few buttons there. He also tends to fly around the location at night and will go into the ventillation system to get into the office. Luckily, when you go in his camera feed you can press a rewind button, it makes so he stays in his place instead of flying around the location, also so he doesn't get you. I think that's all, also, watch out for Donkey Kong, I heard he has a problem with sudden flashing lights.



After you finish the main game, an extras option will appear in the main menu. When you click it, the game will give you three new options. Animatronics, Custom Night, Cheats, Challenges and Jumpscares. Clicking in the Animatronics option will give you the option to look at full body renders of animatronics. Clicking on Jumpscares will let you see the jumpscares in the game. Clicking on the Custom Night option will let you adjust the AI level of the animatronics from 1 to 20. The bigger the AI level, the more dangerous the animatronics. Clicking on the Challenges option will give you three options, Longer Night, Glitchy Cameras and Faster Timer. Longer Night makes the game's nights last longer. Glitchy Cameras make the camera feeds glitch out at random when you use the monitor for too long. Faster Timer makes the timer in Game Area run out faster. Finally, clicking on the Cheats option lets you click on three more options, Radar, Infinite Power and Tazer. Radar will make symbols of the characters appear in the camera map, telling where all of them are. Infinite Power, like the name says, will make so you will never run out of power. Tazer gives you a new button when you check the monitor. Clicking it when an animatronic is in one of the cameras will stun it for a while. Also drains power though.


You get those when doing certain actions in the game, they appear in the main menu. Your first one is when you beat the main game. The second one is when you beat the Custom Night with all the animatronics at maximum AI level. The third and final star is when you beat the Custom Night again at maximum AI level with all the Challenges options activated. You will not get a star if you beat a Custom Night with Cheats.


New Arcade Closes Down!

The newly opened arcade in the city closes down due to malfunctioning animatronics, bad sanitation, rotten food etc. When investigating the place, cops also found a dead body in the backstage of the facility. The owner of the place aswell as various employees are now being interrogated and will be brought to court if anything else is discovered.

Animatronics Bought!

An anonymous wealth person who happened to appear around the place bought the animatronics and other objects from it. They said they knew about engineering and are going to fix the robots and use them for their own benefits.


  • I was once going to make a game called Three Nights at Tetris, but later, when out of ideas, decided to make a game that takes place in an arcade.
