Five Nights at Pikachu's is an indie point-and-click survival horror video game developed by Go2Rutledge. The goal for the player is to survive Five Nights at a Pokémon Theme Park while avoiding getting caught and killed by the animatronic characters and tracking their movements via the park's security cameras.
Welcome to your new summer job at Pokémon Theme Park, where kids and parents alike come for entertainment and Poké Balls as far as the eye can see!
The main attraction is Pikachu, of course, and his friends. They are ghosts, made to haunt the park!
The ghosts' behavior has become somewhat unpredictable at night, however, and it was much cheaper to hire you as a security guard than to find a repairman. From your small office you must watch the security cameras carefully. You have a very limited amount of electricity that you're allowed to use per night (corporate budget cuts, you know). That means when you run out of power for the night — no more security doors and no more lights! If something isn't right — namely, if Pikachu or his friends aren't in their proper places, you must find them on the monitors and protect yourself if needed!
Can you survive Five Nights at Pikachu's?
The player sits in an office and monitors security cameras positioned throughout the theme park to observe the paranormal activity. The player has a limited amount of power to view camera feeds, light hallways, and close the doors on either side of them.
The player must use the camera feed locations in the park and hold the ghosts off using the doors. If the player fails to do this, they will be jumpscared and receive a Game Over. To advance to the next night, the player must survive from 12:00 AM to 6:00 AM (6 minutes and 27 seconds in real-time, 3 minutes 47 seconds on the mobile edition).
The eight animatronics that the player must avoid are the titular Pikachu and his seven friends: Ash, Misty, Brock, Brock's Onix, Jessie, James, and Meowth. There is an additional animatronic known as Golden Pikachu who only appears when the player experiences a hallucination.
