Friday Night Funkin’ is a music-themed game where you play as the BoyFriend trying to get the Girlfriend. While Ninjamuffin99 originally developed the game for Ludum Dare 47 on Itch.io, it has since spread to other platforms. It has similar themes to Scott Pilgrim vs The World whereby you face opponents to get the girl.
What is Friday Night Funkin’?
In this action game, you’ll sing to your heart’s content as the 19-year-old character only known as Boyfriend. The primary reason to spread your vocal capacity is to impress the Dad, who isn’t fond of anyone trying to date his daughter. Of course, there will also be other enemies along the way trying to stop you from achieving your goal.
Gameplay and features
Each sing-off has notes passing over the screen. You’ll need to tap the WASD buttons in the correct order to master the sings and beat your opponents. There’s a meter to show your progress, where shifting to the left means you’re winning while the right indicates you’re losing. If your meter is higher than your enemy’s, you’ll win the round.
