Midnight Games and developer Geekon announced Candyland: Sweet Survival, a survival horror adventure game coming to Steam PC on May 7. Watch the new cinematic trailer above, which weirdly seems to star a digital version of Rupert Grint circa early 2000s.

The setup is a dark twist of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, splashed with some Five Nights at Freddy’s. A young boy explores a creepy, not-so-abandoned chocolate factory that once belonged to his grandfather. “Candyland,” has no affiliation with the family board game, and is mostly filled with puzzles and gumdrop-monster creatures.

By exploring the factory, the player can collect special candy pieces, and use them to explore further into the factory. The goal is to ascend to the top floor and discover the secrets behind the factory.

Judging from a different trailer on Steam, the first-person gameplay looks a bit less horror and more puzzle-y than FNAF. Though the boy wields some sort of paintball gun to deal with those pesky pink monsters.

Even a decade after its original release, Five Nights at Freddy’s remains a hugely popular and influential game for young gamers. It’s often the first step in the survival-horror genre. It’s spawned numerous sequels and spin-offs, and even a full-length feature film that released last year.

Candyland: Sweet Survival will launch on May 7 on Steam.
