A downloadable game for Windows

Story: After getting fed up with Mr.Krabs' greedy nonsense, Squidward decides to quit his job and work at The Chum Bucket instead. At least he'll be paid better. But after arriving at The Chum Bucket, Squidward notices that things aren't quite right here, you must find a way out and Neptune forbid you get caught by Karen along the way...

The long awaited spin off to 3 AM at The Krusty Krab has finally been released! Only this time, the horrors that lurk within are much more dangerous than a man wielding a spatula for a hand. Complete your objectives and find a way out, but it won't be as easy as you may think. Things are much more trickier than the last game. I won't spoil it all, but trust me, there's more spooks to behold.

This parody game was loosely inspired by the episode, "Chum Fricassee" and "Can You Spare A Dime".

As stressful as it was, this game was SO MUCH fun! I love the variety of enemies and what they do kept me on my toes the whole time. I was happy it was over simply from the sheer amount of stress it gave me, in the best way lol. Great work!

I know its been out for a while, I have seen the game been played when it was hyped, but I didn't have a channel back then. So I decided to re-experience the horror. 

I played 3AM at the Krusty Krab a couple of weeks ago, and got convinced to try one of the sequels. It's a fun time!

I was very frustrated and a little confused at first, but it won me over by the end. Another fun way to kill some time, if you're into slightly meme-y horror games :)

I enjoyed this game! Didn’t take too long to figure out what to do and I enjoyed the run and hide aspect of Karen hunting you down. 

Really creepy game. I enjoyed it a lot.

I liked this game a lot. I played two games in one video so i start this one after the first few minutes but this was still really cool.

A fun horror game where you play as Squidward and try to complete tasks in order to escape while trying to avoid Karen and others 5 out of 5 definitely recommend a play.

cool i had a lot fun in these short scary game

Had lots of fun, definitely gonna play many other games made by dev. Keep up the good work!

Buen juego, me gusto mucho aqui dejo mi video probandolo:

After growing up I understand what Squidward meant about SpongeBob being annoying

Ive played almost every SpongeBob horror game there is. Karen kinda bad tho.

everytime i try to open the game its says theres a error couldint start but idk why 


I've unzipped the file, I opened "UE4GAME". I got a fatal error. Any tips on how to boot up the game?

I've seen other people play it and now I'm scared.

I managed to beat the game on second try but my heart was legit pounding the entire time. (Timestamp: 9:10)
