Five Nights at Freddy's 3 is an indie survival horror game that is an installment in the Five Nights at Freddy's game series. It focuses on a place called Fazbear's Fright: The Horror Attraction, which is one week from opening.
In the year 2017, a security guard which is the player takes the night shift at a horror attraction. The player experiences hallucinations known as Phantom Animatronics, along with a new animatronic called Springtrap. The player must survive the phantom animatronics as well as Springtrap, as a person on the phone leads the player through the night, also playing training clips from a previous security guard.
- In the minigame at the end of the game, the player plays as a crying child who makes his way to where the Purple Man usually leads the animatronics to dismantle them. The Purple Man appears to be afraid of the child, as the player chases the Purple Man in a small room with four other children and an empty Springtrap costume. Eventually, the Purple Man flees into the costume. Due to a malfunctioning spring mechanism to make it easy for employees who wear the costumes to get in and out, the Purple Man dies while inside of the costume, and the five children fade away.
