NotesAccessibility Notes


There aren't difficulty settings, and some parts of the game are very difficult. You can only save at certain areas, and you need to hold down the button for about 3 seconds to successfully save. Later on in the game, you can choose to exit the Pizzaplex for one ending, or stay in and try and get the rest. At this point, you can no longer save or recharge Freddy, meaning the game is both harder and you can lose hours of progress if you are caught.

There are many functions that require you to hold down buttons, sometimes for several seconds, that are essential to the gameplay. however, sprinting and sneaking, two very important actions, are toggle-only, which means that you don't need to hold down the button at all for them.

There are very frequent visual effects that can be distracting or disorienting, such as the loud jump scares, intense chromatic aberration when certain characters are nearby, and bright white flashes. In addition, the camera system has an effect that makes it look like an old-fashioned recording, which can make it hard to see.
