 The game is set in the future, with the following description:

Thirty years after Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza closed it’s doors, the events that took place there have become nothing more than a rumor and a childhood memory, but the owners of “Fazbear’s Fright: The Horror Attraction” are determined to revive the legend and make the experience as authentic as possible for patrons, going to great lengths to find anything that might have survived decades of neglect and ruin.

At first there were only empty shells, a hand, a hook, an old paper-plate doll, but then a remarkable discovery was made…

The attraction now has one animatronic.

It’s only been out for a few hours, but there’s already a LP with some video footage of it via Markiplier. From watching it, it looks like it will be more of the same terrifying gameplay that we’ve come to know and love. Are you game enough to play it?

Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 is now available for $7.99 on Steam.
