Friday Night Funkin' Overview

What is it?

FNF is a rhythm game that combines music and dating sim elements. You play as the boyfriend, battling your girlfriend's dad through musical showdowns to win her approval.

Your goal is to outscore your opponent by hitting the notes in time with the music. The better you perform, the more your meter fills up. Once it's full, you win the round.
