Five Nights at Freddy’s: Ultimate Custom Night takes robo-horror to anarchic extremes

Scott Cawthon is an odd fellow. He started out making offbeat genre-blending RPGs before stumbling into wealth and fame with the Five Nights At Freddy's series. Several indie horror hits about surviving the night watch at a haunted animatronic pizza parlor, a line of official toys and a film in production later and what does he do? He goes back to making stuff for free.…

Five Nights at Freddy’s movie coming from Home Alone director Chris Columbus

Horror is one of my great obsessions. Comics, movies, literature, I don’t care what form it comes in as long as it has a chance of scaring me half to death. But what about films based on games? At this point, those of us who occupy the obscure section of the Venn diagram of life that includes fans of horror game-to-movie conversions are so artistically…

Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria Simulator is free and not what it seems

Oh, Scott Cawthon, you sneaky, sneaky man. Yesterday, we reported that the Five Nights at Freddy’s designer was working on a spin-off -- a pizzeria tycoon game. The announcement was accompanied by a single screenshot of a FNaF 8-bit arcade game. It’s out now on Steam, and it’s free to boot. It’s also not what it seems. Read on to have the surprise ruined for…

Five Nights at Freddy’s creator teases spin-off

When Earth has become an empty wasteland waiting to be consumed by the sun, Scott Cawthon will still be making Five Nights at Freddy’s games. Since 2014, Cawthon has released six games in the series, and while he shelved the latest installment back in July, he’s already returned with a new one. Details are slim at the moment, but it looks like a… pizzeria simulator.

Five Nights at Freddy’s creator jumps back from series

Several years ago, I went through a list of over 1,000 fan-made games inspired by Five Nights at Freddy's. And that was before the jumpscare 'em up series really took off. Several games (and one troubled spin-off) later, creator Scott Cawthon has confirmed that he was working on a Five Nights 6 of sorts - but confirmed this by announcing its cancellation. The pressure of…

Five Nights At Freddy’s: Sister Location Lurches Out

BOO! You thought you were safe for a good few weeks but no, the spookening has begun. The spooky-spoos are out and they've come a-spooking. By which I mean Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location [official site] launched over the weekend. The latest in Scott Cawthon's smash hit jumpscare 'em up ventures to a new children's restaurant overrun with new animatronic monsters, and it also…

The RPS Summer Games: Five Nights At Freddy’s

Third on the RPS Summer Games agenda is Five Nights At Freddy's [official site]. The cult favourite horror game challenges you to spend five nights in the security room of a building populated by animatronic horrors. Some people find it dull/daft and some people find it unbearably tense. For the Summer Games we're just trying to last as many nights as we can (or, if…

Five Nights At Freddy’s World Re-Released For Free

FNaF World [official site], the RPG spin-off from animatronic scare 'em up Five Nights at Freddy's, has returned and is now free. Creator Scott Cawthon released it in January, a month earlier than he'd previously planned, and some responses to the game made him rethink that. Really rethink that. He pulled the game from sale, decided to refund the $10 of everyone who bought it,…

FNaF World Pulled From Sale, Will Return Free

Five Nights at Freddy's creator Scott Cawthon has pulled his newly-released RPG spin-off FNaF World [official site] from sale and plans to refund all buyers, then re-release the game later for free. He's unhappy with its reception, he says, and wants to do better. He had released it a month earlier than planned and, apparently, that hasn't quite worked out.

Boo! Five Nights At Freddy’s World Jumps Out Early

Five Nights at Freddy's World [official site] may be taking the animatronic cast of the smash-hit jumpscare 'em up into a retro-style JRPG, but creator Scott Cawthon still likes to throw a surprise a two out. For example, BOO! It's out right now! FNaF World was due on February 19th but it's out a month early, right here right now right up in your face…

Spooky Teddy JRPG Spin-Off FNaF World Out Soon

I have never played a Five Nights at Freddy's [official site] game. This is nothing to do with loathing the art style or having no patience for jump-scares, and everything to do with an ancient prophecy that states the entire population of the world will spontaneously sprout weeping facial sores should a 5'6", quarter-Jewish man born in Upton Snodsbury, Worcestershire ever play a game about…

Five Nights At Freddy’s World Is An RPG, Is Real

Five Nights at Freddy's [official site] creator Scott Cawthon has confirmed that while there won't be a fifth game in the main series - "the story is complete" - there will be another FNAF game soon. It's an RPG: "The new game that I'm working on will be called FNAF World. It will not be a horror game, but a role playing game where you…

Honey, It’s Home: Five Nights At Freddy’s 4 Out Now

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a game in possession of a release date, must be in want of a delay. When Mr Ubi or Miss 2K (no known connection to Mis-Teeq) tell us that their next sequel will be coming out on May 12th, we're inclined to make like Kyle Reese and ask "WHAT YEAR?" Delays are common but when did a game…

It’s Coming Home: Five Nights At Freddy’s 4 In August

Over eleven months and three games, Five Nights at Freddy's [official site] has terrified more children than I could hope to in a lifetime. Imagine their snotty little faces peeking out from beneath blankets at night, bottom lips quivering. The fools. Five Nights at Freddy's 4 will despoil this final sanctum, bringing animatronic jumpscare horrors into a normal home and a child's bedroom. Let's see…

Fastbear: Five Nights At Freddy’s 4 In Works, Due October

Horror fans: you can stop mourning the cancellation of Silent Hills now. Developer Scott Cawthon has teased "The Final Chapter" of his Five Nights At Freddy's series, which suggests that Five Nights At Freddy's 4 [official site] is on the way. And if the teaser image is to be believed, it'll arrive on October 31st, 2015.

Jack In The Box: Five Nights At Freddy’s 3

Will I never learn? RPS Towers, two days ago Pip: Oh look, a new Five Nights At Freddy's game [official site]*. Adam: There are so many. I can't play them all. There isn't enough liquor in the world. Pip: This isn't one for Alice's Encyclopædia Animatronica. It's Five Nights At Freddy's 3. Adam: OK. I'm going in. I shouldn't have gone in.

Behind The Mask: Five Nights At Freddy’s

I hadn't played Five Nights At Freddy's until Saturday night and when I finally got around to it, the game made me angry. I stomped around my flat, complained loudly about how much I hate jump scares and screamers, and told anyone who would listen that the whole thing is terribly designed. Stress can make liars of us all.

When Did This Get Here? Five Nights At Freddy’s 2

The last time we looked at Five Nights At Freddy's 2 on our security camera feeds, the animatronic horror was standing quietly still on Steam Greenlight. And now it's here. It's here on Steam, before us, released properly for real, and we didn't even notice it leave Greenlight. It's all very convenient for me, writing this now, as that's the basic setup of the game:…

Animatronic Terrors: Five Nights At Freddy’s 2

Let's all be quite clear about one thing: I am still young and cool and vibrant. Good. Obviously I know about all the cool things young people like myself are up to, and those small jumpscare horror games we all enjoy with our cool friends. Slender Man is so 2012, SCP games are over, and creepypasta hacks were too goofy to ever catch on. No,…

Five Nights At Freddy’s Looks Creepier Than Knotweed

I almost don't want to know what Five Nights At Freddy's really is. I feel like it can never live up to the bemusing insanity of its in-game trailer. A trailer that made an actual l come ol from my mouth at the end. Freddy Fazbear's Pizza is some sort of grotesque cut-price Chuck E Cheese, where the kids are entertained by animatronic life-size puppets…
