It’s a first-person, survival horror game set in Freddy Fazbear’s Mega Pizzaplex. Players will take on the role of Gregory, a little boy who is trapped inside overnight. The goal is to survive while you search for a way out.
As you search for a way out, the animatronics Roxy, Chica, and Monty are on the hunt. Players will also have to be on the lookout for S.T.A.F.F. bots that will sound the alarm and call the animatronics if they spot you. Running will be limited as stamina plays a factor. The animatronics will also evolve as the night progresses so you’ll have to pay attention and adapt to how things change. Freddy Fazbear will support you with shortcuts, insider tips, and warnings. Freddy’s oversized birthday cake hatch also serves as a good hiding spot. Players can access the different security cameras to use, knock down objects to get the enemy’s attention and use some weapons to stun enemies.

The new gameplay revealed for Little Devil Inside shares a first look at how travel in the game works. As you travel, players will come across and encounter various events. Many of these are simple interactions that has the player remain in the world map view. Others allow players to zoom into an actual real-time gameplay level where real-time actions can be preformed. Players can travel through the world on foot, a horse, in vehicles, and by train.
The devs said that “The game is not about leveling up the character as quickly as you can and speed running through all the content. As such, the pace of the game is designed to try and touch the player’s emotions by giving enough time and space and allow them to “take-in” the various atmosphere. Hence, no fast travel.”
