What are FNF games?
- FNF or ‘Friday Night Funkin’ is an open-source rhythm game that the developers released for the first time in 2020 in a game jam. Four Newgrounds users are touted as the masterminds for the game. The four developers are Cameron “Ninjamuffin99” Taylor, David “PhantomArcade” Brown, Isaac “Kawai Sprite” Garcia, and evilsk8r. When you start playing the game, you will see that some of the game’s features match those of Dance Dance Revolution and PaRappa the Rapper.
- When the developers submitted the game first as part of a game jam, they included very few musical tracks and menus. Even then, the game was met with huge success. On November 1, 2020, with many additional menus and options, the updated version of the initial demo came into effect. Its popularity soared, especially on Newgrounds and social media platforms like YouTube and Twitter.
- So far we have seen the demo versions of the game. Now, the game developers are all set to release the complete version of the game in the name of Friday Night Funkin’: The Full Ass Game sometime in 2022. As of now the game is in the development stage and has successfully received funding through an official Kickstarter campaign.
- The game allows modding or modifications by its fans and players and as a result, there are various versions of FNF. Modding has been made possible because of the open-source nature of the game. Therefore, the full version will also have mod support with the help of the Polymod Framework.
All about FNF Games
- The game, as of now, is available only on PC. It is compatible with Windows, macOS, and Linux. However, we are sure if the full version of the game also garners as much support as the demo has garnered, the developers will release the game on other platforms later on, if not now.
- There are two playing modes in FNF and they are the story mode and the free play mode. The style in both the modes is the same. The difference is in the fact that a sequence is not required in the free play mode and players can choose any song of their choice.
- The plot of the game is extremely simple and the game is easy to play. FNF revolves around the protagonist who faces many obstacles while dating his beloved. You, as a player, have to overcome those obstacles for your main character. The main character is “Boyfriend” who is tasked with convincing his “Girlfriend’s” parents that he is going to date her. Girlfriend’s father, who doesn’t want this to happen, hires many characters to prevent Boyfriend from approaching Girlfriend.
- The game has a limited runtime and you can increase the runtime only with the help of repetition.
- The main challenge is responding to the opponent’s songs through songs, such as in a rap battle. If you hit the right notes, the songs pack in a lot of fun.
Game Levels and Soundtrack
- The FNF Game levels are known as “weeks” and there are seven of them. The complexity of the level increases as you progress further and deeper. You will have a decent number of songs within a week. Don’t worry about the relevance of the songs to the story as that is on-point.
- Kawai Sprite has exclusively created the FNF soundtrack and the songs have struck the right chord with each and every player. Bandcamp and Spotify are the platforms where the songs can be streamed.
Upgrades expected in the Full FNF Version
- Some of the upgrades that are supposed to be seen in the full FNF version are a two-player mode, cutscenes to give better ideas of the characters, and a leaderboard. Developers are also going to add 20 extra “weeks” and 60 additional songs.
- Developers are also said to add additional game mechanics to guarantee a superior rhythm-gaming experience for players. Some of the additional mechanics that may be added with mod support are swap notes and dodging, among others.
- The demo versions of FNF have been so popular that the expectations from the full FNF version have gone through the roof. Let’s see if the developers consider all these expectations. Only time will tell.
