Welcome, children, to a wonderful, magical, yet grizzly story that old Nicholas never wanted you to know.

Frosty Nights is a Five Nights at Freddy's-style Survival Horror game by Barry McCabe, who is best known for his Boogeyman games.

A young child has spent a day building a snowman before being called in by their mother. That night, the mother tells him/her to get to bed early so they can be ready for school tomorrow, and warns him/her against listening to scary stories because they give him/her nightmares. Guess what (s)he decides (s)he's gonna do next.

So, yes, that night, the child finds they're being visited, and the unexpected company isn't friendly. Luckily, (s)he's got a flashlight and a hair dryer, so as long as (s)he keeps his/her eyes on all the entrances to his/her room, (s)he's set.

The game was released on December 8th, 2017.


Frosty Nights contains examples of:

  • Air-Vent Passageway: Yellow will attempt to enter your room via the vents.
  • Cassette Craze: The in-game story the boy listens to is on five cassette tapes.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: The snowmen are distinguished from eachother by the clothes they wear. There's Jolly Red, Fat Blue, Crazy Green, and Yellow.
  • Cranium Chase: One of the snowmen leaves his head on a windowsill, which rolls on the floor when his body enters to retrieve it before attacking the child.
  • Enter Stage Window: There's two windows through which Snowlems can enter.

  • Featureless Protagonist: You never really see what your character really looks like.
  • Gun Accessories: Early in the game, the boy tapes a flashlight to the hair dryer he uses to ward off the snowmen.
  • Immobile Player Character: Mostly. Like Boogeyman and Boogeyman 2 before them, you're immobile during the nights, but can move about the room during the day.
  • Kid Hero
  • The Noseless: Green has no nose.
  • Sickening "Crunch!": Whenever a snowman manages to catch you, you hear what sounds like a bone snapping.
  • Snowlems: Living, child-eating snowmen are constantly entering the child's room, and (s)he needs to keep them at bay with a blast of hot air from his/her blow dryer.
