They've stalked you. They've scared you. They've haunted you. But now...They're CUTE.

Were you looking for the Halloween version of the game?

FNaF World (sometimes called Five Nights at Freddy's World) is an Indie RPG and a spin-off of the Five Nights at Freddy's series created by Scott Cawthon. On January 25, 2016, the game was taken off of Steam, but was later reuploaded to Gamejolt on February 8, 2016, with new updates. Then, on May 13, 2016, update 1.20 was released. On January 12, 2017, the Android port of the game has been released. There is no set iOS date.


Featuring the entire cast from the Five Nights at Freddy's series, this fantasy RPG will let players control their favorite animatronics in a an epic animated adventure!

With 48 playable characters, multiple endings, multiple difficulties, and a great soundtrack from artist Leon Riskin, FNaF World hits the ground running and doesn't stop. Take control of Freddy and the gang as they set out on a quest in the world beneath worlds, a world that reflects the actions and deeds of the "flipside", where things have started becoming distorted and broken. Lead your team deeper into this digital world to find the source of these glitches and monsters, and restore it to what it was designed to be- a safe haven.

But be careful, behind the curtain there may be something even more sinister pulling the strings...

Relation of Five Nights at Freddy's Canon

The events of FNaF World and the core series for Five Nights at Freddy's are officially considered to be separate canons. However, various events within FNaF World imply the two canons are still related in some sort of meta respect. This is particularly noticeable in various end game events further detailed in the spoiler below.

After defeating Security in Hard Mode, the player is faced with the true final boss, Animdude, a representation of the creator of the franchise Scott Cawthon, who bemoans his life of trying to appease the players by cranking out more games.

In a later update, the character known as Desk Man (who seems more than likely to be another stand-in for Cawthon) speaks of how everything is a mess, presumably in the world he has created.

In yet another update, access to a new area is granted, being a behind the scenes area for the Halloween Update for Five Nights at Freddy's 4. Here, characters such as Purpleguy, who references the Purple Guy from the core series games; Coffee; and Mr. Chipper, characters from other games created by Cawthon, as well as a playable version of Animdude, can be found. Various spin-off games can be found in this area as well, such as FNaF 57: Freddy in Space, which was first mentioned in an April Fool's Day teaser; Foxy Fighters, a parody of StarFox and other side-scrolling shooters; Chica's Magic Rainbow, a spin-off made as a rage game; and Foxy.EXE, a parody of creepypasta horror games all ending with the .EXE file type.

Of particular note, Cawthon appears again in FNaF 57 as the final boss with a form that is a personal wish fulfillment of his.

Finally, upon defeating the new final boss, players are introduced to Baby through Desk Man, who is said to be a creation of his. Days after this ending was seen by players, a new teaser was added to showcasing Baby, implying that her creation on FNaF World has brought her into the core series in Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location.


The soundtrack for FNaF World was composed by Leon Riskin of Ionics Music. Below is a list of currently released music for the game:

The game was first noticed when on September 9, 2015, when a giant "Thank you!" picture featuring nearly all of the animatronics of the Five Nights at Freddy's series, was starting turning into the characters of FNaF World. It started off with Endo-01, then Endo-02, Fredbear, and so on (with the only exception being the floating Golden Freddy head in the background, who was removed for unknown reasons). On September 22, 2015, all of the playable characters appeared on the image. The Phantoms, Shadows, Paperpals, Crying Child, Fredbear, and Spring Bonnie appeared during that time, while they weren't on the orginal picture. Scott made a new website,, to show FNaF World-related teasers.

Later, was edited, saying that a hacker had gotten the files to FNaF World, and that would release them sometime on October 28, 2015. It ended up being FNaF World: Halloween Edition, and appears to be a rip-off of one of Scott's older games. After it was released, Scott confirmed of the first trailer, and released it on October 30, 2015.

On (Insert date here), both and were completely stripped off of its color, leaving only the titles and warning notice remaining. The same day, if brightened, a picture of Mangle, who appears to be dangling by an unknown source, appears only on It was later removed the same day, since it was believed to mention suicide.

Scott Cawthon later went on a three week break without a warning, until releasing new pictures on IndieDB. On the same day, a picture of the enemy Ballboy's head appears. On Christmas eve, Scott later posted a "Merry Christmas!" photo of the characters before the Mangle teaser, featuring Bubba, Browboy, Mad Endo, and Porkpatch. It was later changed after Christmas.

On January 8, 2016, the second trailer was uploaded only on IndieDB. Scott Cawthon confirmed the release date to be February 19, 2016, but later changed to January 21, 2016. Due to the amount of hate, Scott removed it off Steam, and confirmed that he will update it to make it better for the community. On February 8, 2016, it was re-released on Gamejolt, with the first update.

On Febuary 18, 2016, was updated, featuring the Halloween animatronics (excluding Nightmare Mangle), Chipper from Chipper and Son's Lumber Co, Purple Guy (using his Five Nights at Freddy's 3 8-bit sprite), and Coffee from The Desolate Hope. An update to the IndieDB page also featured Scott himself (as his avatar) as a playable character.

On March 30, 2016, was updated again, having an easter egg at the top-right corner of the screen, showing Foxy, JJ, and Toy Chica riding planes, which debuted "Fox Fighter" minigame.

On April 1, 2016, a kitten from one of Scott's older games, Kitten In The Crowd, appeared as an April Fool's joke. It was removed the next day. The kitten can be found in the minigames Foxy.EXE, and FNaF 57.

On May 1, 2016, a rainbow with buckteeth, later known as Chica's Magic Rainbow, appeared.

Two days later, Update 2 was set to be released on May 13, 2016.

On May 13, 2016, Update 2 was officially released.

The game was expected to release on Android and IOS ports, but after hate and some controversy in the ports, Scott has stopped support on FNaF World ports and future updates to the game. The Android port was pulled out of stores and the IOS ports were never released. The PC version was still up on Gamejolt as it originated there.

The website went dark for a long time, that is until certain things relating to Five Nights at Freddy's were posted in the website's code. This happened on its sister website,

On June 11, 2017, Scott posted an image that seems to be Circus Baby, partially withered with glowing green eyes. This was related to the source codes, but could not be posted on, most likely due to the 2nd book of the game series, The Twisted Ones, being teased on the said website.

Though receiving an 87% on Steam, the FNaF World reviews were very negative. This was believed that the game was entirely rushed, due to the 3D overworld was changed into the 2D overworld, the sudden change when into battle, and the battle system. Some of the reviews that influenced these ratings were very troll-like, with those being voted Helpful while the opposite occurred for any positive ones.

On Gamejolt however, FNaF World received a total 5 star rating, with around 4,000 followers and 2,500 ratings. It became one of the first best "games tagged in FNaF" for very long, although its placing is often switched with fan games.

Strategies for Beginners (Hard Mode)

Those who are new to this game and are planning to play it, here a few very useful hints, tricks and tactics for the first 30 minutes of gameplay:

  1. When possible, it is recommended that the player gathers 275 faztokens, here's why:
    A. 25 for the 1st pink colored med-pod, that'll help keep the party members alive by constantly healing them when dealing with the 1st few challengers, such as BB, Phantom BB, JJ, etc.
    B. 250 for the 3 Wasps from Lolbit standing near DeeDee, after the player has successfully caught the pearl twice in DeeDee's fishing hole and found at least 5 silver small chests (Faztokens) lying around Fazbear Hills.
  2. Every time it is Freddy's turn to attack, the player should always choose "birthday", which means that defense, attack, and speed temporarily increase, making battles faster and easier.
  3. After the player has beaten one of the mentioned above challengers (BB for example), it is recommended that Chica is swapped for that character as the only actual attack she has is "Party Favors", that isn't very useful plus it deals very little to no damage.
  4. Lastly, if possible, it is recommended that the player catches the pearl "three" more times to add up to 5, the reason is that the pearl, once unlocked, will provide additional help in making sure party members don't die when fighting against the aforementioned above challengers.



Title Screen


GameJolt Screenshots

  • The party selection screen.
  • A battle with Dogfight.
  • The Bytes selection screen.
  • A battle with Browboy.
  • A battle with three Chillaxes.
  • The first Sub-Tunnel.
  • All the collectable chips.


  • This is the first time Scott has collaborated with anyone else to create a Five Nights at Freddy's game. The second being Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location, and the third being Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator.
  • FNaF World is the only game in the series that is not canon, and does not reveal any part of the original series' storyline.
    • However, it gives hints and references, like the loading screens, gameplay, and the lore.
  • FNaF World has the most teasers out of any game in the series, numbering at 50, with 22 on, nineteen on IndieDB, and nine on Gamejolt.
  • It is entirely possible to "pause" the game, by pressing both "CTRL" and "P". The same method also goes to other Clickteam Fusion-based games.
  • FNaF World is the only game in the series that has two trailers, while the other games from the core series have only one.
  • If the player resizes the game's icon, it will eventually turn into an icon of Freddy Fazbear's face covering the entire icon, but this happens on most computers.
  • FNaF World is the only game in the series that has been removed off of a website.
    • It is also the only game to get more than two important updates.
  • It is entirely possible to own two characters from the fifth row in the Character Selection without collecting four characters from the second row.
  • The 'Game Over' screen resembles the one from Five Nights at Freddy's 3. This may because the game over screen from Five Nights at Freddy's and Five Nights at Freddy's 2 shows the player stuck inside the Freddy Fazbear suit, which has nothing to do with FNaF World, and the game over screen from Five Nights at Freddy's 4 is too sinister.
  • If an Update 2 character is the first party member of the first party and talks with Fredbear or Animdude, Freddy Fazbear will appear instead. This is because the sprites for them was not added.
  • Mainly all of the playable characters have "cheery" costume head eyes. This is common for lots of Scott's video game character models.
    • This is presumably intended to make the characters more kid-friendly looking.
  • The only character to not have a 3D Model is Purple Guy, as he is a pixelated 2D character.
  • To remove the game's save files, press the "END" button for 5 seconds (Warning: this can't be undone once the save files have been deleted so be sure to make backup copies first beforehand).
  • Scott confirmed that he will work on the mobile version of the game after Update 2 is released.
  • Clicking on Freddy's nose on the Main Menu screen will cause a honk. This is a reference to the posters, or Freddy Plushie in Five Nights at Freddy's 4 case, doing the same thing in the core series.
  • Nightmare Mangle is the only character from the Five Nights at Freddy's 4 Halloween Update to not be added in Update 2.
    • Along with this, Withered Golden Freddy and the Sister Location animatronics, with the exception of Baby's eyes, are not in the game either.
  • Oddly, in the trailers, the core series Freddy head appears to be in 2 different parts, one side with Freddy, and the other with Golden Freddy.
    • This makes the core series Golden Freddy the first hallucination to ever appear in a trailer.
  • The first trailer of the game was removed off YouTube due to being a "crappy trailer", according to Scott.
  • FNaF World is the first FNaF game to have voice actors, following with FNaF: Sister Location being the second.
  • Despite known references, Scott Cawthon has deconfirmed an Update 3.
  • The Browboy Gamejolt image shows Browboy with 2/3 of his health, yet a Bomb Byte can be seen in the image, which is odd as these types of Bytes explode at the start of each battle.
  • The Steam Community page is still up and present with guides, videos, screenshots, discussions etc. It's possible to get the game on Steam, however the store page has been removed and it is impossible to leave a review or follow the game.
