Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted is a collection of mini-games, set in a universe known from the popular horror series Five Nights at Freddy's. The production was prepared for virtual reality goggles HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR. Steel Wool Studios developers (known from Bounce, The Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth and Mars Odyssey) are responsible for its creation. The publisher is ScottGames.
Five Nights at Freddy's tells the story of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza restaurant chain. Its premises are haunted by animated mascots who come to life at night, hunting for people who have the misfortune of being indoors at the time.
Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted is a collection of several different mini-games, so the mechanics of the game here is dependent on the activity that we are currently undertaking. The game involves, among others, repairing ventilation systems and damaged toys, or working as a night watchman in a dark office.
During the game we encounter (and are threatened by) animated mascots known from the series Five Nights at Freddy's, such as the title Freddy, but also Bonnie, Foxy, Funtime Foxy, Chica, The Mangle, Springtrap or Circus Baby. The title also plays in virtual reality a number of classic scenes from previous games in the series.
While playing, we come across various types of finders, such as stuffed toys and figurines. We also collect the Phase tokens, thanks to which we unlock additional prizes.
Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted can only be played alone. The creators have not prepared any multiplayer mode.
Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted offers a decent, three-dimensional graphic design in an unusual style, characteristic for the cycle Five Nights at Freddy's. Thanks to the use of virtual reality technology it has become possible to reach the level of immersion unattainable for traditional games.
Production requires Oculus Rift, HTC Vive (PC version) or PlayStation VR (PS4 dedicated version) to run the goggles of virtual reality.
