Yes, there are still a lot more Friday Night Funkin’ mods out there to keep the Fridays funky. Here are some that caught TechRaptor’s eye since last time. The majority of new mods are on the game’s Gamebanana page. Feel free to suggest your own favorites in the comments, or reach out to us on social media. Don’t forget to check out our first collection of mods, since there’s some good quality stuff there.
Friday Night Funkin' - The Tricky Mod
The Tricky Mod introduces Tricky the Clown, a noseless, eyeless green clown being with noticeably sharp teeth from the Madness Combat animations. It currently features two different phases, though it remains in development. The first track, "Improbable Outset," introduces the harsh, gravelly “voice” of Tricky. Serving as his first phase, it’s nearly two minutes and is an indicator of things to come. The second track, "Madness," ramps up the intensity as the second phase begins. In his second phase, Tricky unleashes frantic barrages of notes for the Boyfriend to follow, the heavy distortion matching his erratic movements well. Kade Dev features an up-to-date playthrough on their YouTube channel, and you can find it on Gamebanana.
Friday Night Funkin' - Friday Night Funkin’ But Bad Mod
There’s something charming in the Friday Night Funkin’ soundtrack. There’s also something to be said about the appeal of trainwrecks. The Friday Night Funkin’ But Bad mod takes the visuals and audio of the original game and completely butchers them. The peaking low-quality audio and MS Paint spritework create something that is equal parts awful and incredible. You can check out its rendition of Week 6 on YouTube, and download it from Gamebanana. The Friday nights have indeed gotten all Funked up.
Friday Night Funkin' - Sarvente’s Mid-Fight Masses Mod
Another full-week mod, Sarvente’s Mid-Fight Masses features a whopping four new original songs. Designed for the Sarv Engine, the engine is intended to provide better inputs and more control schemes than the base game. It also lets you see your total accuracy and misses to get a better gauge on your performance than pass/fail. The Boyfriend and Girlfriend encounter Sarvente, a nun. Sarvente is incredibly polite and welcome, but there’s something beneath the surface. She’s very insistent on the two of them joining her Midnight Mass. Of course, the two Einsteins were just looking for the bathroom. In true Friday Night Funkin’ fashion, a musical duel ensues. The original tracks and charts include multiple double notes and plenty of other dense note clusters. You can watch a trailer for the mod on YouTube and pick it up on Gamebanana.
Friday Night Funkin' - V.S. Pompom Full Week
Pompom brings three new songs to the table with her week. With her sliced-apple pigtails and sweet attitude, Pompom is one of the cutest adversaries yet. The mod’s art direction is great, with a fun, almost Animal Crossing-like character design and all sorts of little nods to other mods carved into the tree. The progression of the soothing "Sugar Cookie" to the energetic "Key Lime" is really fun. The twangy, harmonica-like voice also works well. Her final song, Stomachache, is a blast when it gets going. Unlike many of the other weeks, the ending is undeniably wholesome. The Boyfriend, Girlfriend, and Pompom sit down and have a picnic the next day. The mod only dropped a couple of weeks ago, so it’s fresh like a warm apple pie. You can grab it on Gamebanana, but if you want to just watch and listen, there’s a full playthrough online, too. V.S. Pompom is a solo mod by ArtCarrot_ using the Kade Engine.
There’s still a lot of undiscovered gold in the Friday Night Funkin’ mod community, with more every day. Thanks to the game’s open-source nature, the mod community has exploded. Share your favorites, or check out the Friday Night Funkin' Kickstarter. Sure, it was funded in about two hours, but there's still plenty of time to meet those stretch goals! Friday Night Funkin' is free to play and can be downloaded from itch.io. Be sure to take care when directly modding game files.
