Just in time for the spookiest time of year is a new VR fan remake of Five Nights at Freddy’s (2014) that brings some of the horror of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza to room-scale VR. Although it only gives you two nights (and an “extra special” Halloween night), there’s no better price than ‘free’ for a quick pre-Halloween thrill.

Created by indie dev ‘Dielji’ for the HTC Vive with support for Oculus Rift + Touch, the demo places you in the back office of Freddy’s, the kid-friendly fun time pizza joint complete with animatronic sing-song robots.

Following the original Five Nights at Freddy’s, your job is to watch the security cameras from your monitor with only a small amount of electricity available each night, putting you in precarious situation of keeping the lights on, the security cameras working, and the security doors closed from the screaming wrath of the possessed animatronic beasts. If Freddybear or his pals aren’t where they should be, you’ll have to switch through each monitor feed to stop them in their tracks.

While there are several VR fan remakes available going as far back as the Oculus Rift DK1 days, the most famous of which is One Night at Freddy’sthis seems to be the first room-scale adaptation.

Deiji maintains the demo, which is rightly named Vive Nights at Freddy’s, will be expanded to a full 5+ nights, “and may include a few twists and turns of its own.” The demo even features a clever resizing tool so you can fit the game’s room-scale-sized back office to your individual playspace.

‘Vive Nights at Freddy’s’ for Vive and Rift

Here’s a quick how-to guide on what to expect:

Using the trigger of the Vive controller, remove the time card for the night you wish to play from the time card receptacle located to the right of the punch-clock. Insert your time card into the slot on the underside of the punch-clock, then firmly press the button on the top of the punch-clock to begin the night. Hold the power button down to keep the monitor on (gotta conserve power after all!) and press the buttons below the monitor to switch feeds. There are buttons next to the doorways on your right and left to control the doors and hallways lights. Good luck!

Note: Other people watching your gameplay will see a map showing the locations of the animatronics and other useful information. If you prefer to keep your viewers in suspense, you can toggle this display on and off by tapping the “M” key on your keyboard.
