Friday Night Funkin is a rhythm game made with HaxeFlixel. You control a character called Boyfriend, who must defeat a series of opponents in order to continue dating his significant other, Girlfriend. The player must pass multiple levels, referred to as “weeks”, each containing three songs. Each week, the player faces a different opponent, though some deviate in structure from this via the inclusion of multiple opponents.
During gameplay, the opponent will sing a pattern of notes (represented as arrows) which the player must then mirror by using the arrow keys or the W, A, S, and D keys. Some songs introduce more complicated patterns, with the player’s pattern sometimes varying from the opponent’s or both singers engaging in a duet.
The game is drawn and animated in a manner that nostalgically encapsulates Newgrounds’ Flash animations with an art style inspired by graffiti street art. The game features multiple weeks where the player is confronted with various opponents with multiple songs.
The game shares some gameplay features with Dance Dance Revolution and PaRappa the Rapper and borrows aesthetic influences from Flash games. The game has been credited with driving users back to Newgrounds, a site whose popularity peaked in the early 2000s.
This is free and open source software.
Friday Night Funkin is written in Haxe.
