I only saw some gameplay on youtube. I seems pretty scary and intense. But it looks like shit.I know gameplay is suppose to be more important then graphics, but this is laughable bad. Like it's from the first fucking toy story
+Flavor of the month.
+Simple mechanics, tension and atmosphere are surprisingly fresh for the horror genre.
+Fans have put out neat plot theories, still waiting on Scott to drop the actually explain the plotholes and true story.
-Textures are only for 1280x720 resolutions
-Gets boring after your 9th or 10th try
Worth $5 though
Fine for what it was- a nifty concept for a little no budget indie horror game- but overhyped to unbelievable extremes which caused unnecessary buzz for the game, either from people praising it as the GOAT horror game or people shitting all over it for all the wrong reasons.
I'm hoping the developer doesn't let it go to his head and puts some nice love and care into FNAF2, but considering how these types of things usually go I get the feeling it'll be an uninspired cash grab.
Then again, his other games are pretty insane, so maybe he'll surprise everyone.
That's like 50% of where the creepiness is supposed to come in. All of his games use pre-rendered graphics, and the animatronics are supposed to look shitty, like the earliest days of CGI creepy.
Look at this fucking creepy ass baby. This was made by fucking Pixar.
A lot of fun. Good use of dark humor. Excited for the sequel but worried that the developer doesn't fully understand that the limited mechanics/movement is what made the game spooky.
people said the exact same thing when Cookie Clicker and Pooh Baseball were popular
Within 3 months no one will care about this, and will have likely moved onto some other bandwagon
I'm sure that there was an extremely small budget, but what I've always wondered is how and where the fuck the developer got all the scenery and animatronics. Or was it all painted?
1. Those games didn't really have widespread appeal.
2. Those games didn't receive any commentaries from any Youtube faggots (I do remember watching a video on Pooh baseball, but it definitely wasn't anybody popular.)
3. Those games weren't on Steam and mobile.
Just spent a few minutes testing some shit, and here's what I've found:
1 hour in game = 90 seconds IRL
1 item kept on for 1 hour = 20% of power
2 items on for 1 hour = 30% power
3 items on for ` hour = 37% power
Freddy's death animation = 20-30 seconds (seems to vary)
I really want the sequel to be
You assuming the role of a police officer trying to rope off/otherwise contain the town where the pizza shop was, but it's been burned down and the statues are running amok through the panicking town.
I wanted to like it, but then the toxic ass creepypasta/Jeff the killer fandom adopted it and the characters so now I hate it.
Also, why not turn off the damn fan if power is a concern?
Also, if the voicemails are pre-recorded why is the phone ringing? Who the hell is calling?
It makes for great porn. That's pretty much it, and that's good enough for me.
flavor of the month. it's a really fun game when you don't know much about it. the game thrives on the tension of not messing up. it's a shame though that once you figure out the patterns and mechanics of the game, that it becomes pretty boring.
also yes it has lots of jumpscares but that's really only used when you've messed up and the truly spooky aspect of the game is the balance of trying to conserve power and avoid the jumpscares.
also it lacks variety in how you approach the game once it gets past night 3. in order to continue progression it essentially boils down to 1 type of playstyle. because anything else isn't efficient enough.
Instead of making a sequel he should
use his money to buy an actual pizzeria with some animatronics, recreate the 5n@F scenario in real life and turn it into a fear factor TV episode
I liked the first game for what it is, but having a sequel to a game like this just seems like a cash grab and I really doubt it be any good. some projects you just need to let them be as is and move on to something new.
Cookie clicker even got a fucking mobile version you idiot. I coudnt go anywhere for a month without people talking about how pewdiepie was playing it or some shit.
Was alright, don't regret spending $2.50 on it. Not as hyped as everyone made it though, but the lore threads with /v/ were fun until the furfaggots and people jumping in and shitposting about viral marketing.
I like The Desolate Hope more, it's got way better gameplay.

Nigger I'm pretty sure any guard would rather risk being burned in a fire than have to play a game of freeze tag with those mechanical monstrosities. And don't even start with fire marshals checking the place when there are like 30 dead bodies scattered around the fucking place.
After the first fucking day if he did not quit he should have brought a blow torch and welded the fucking doors shut before his shift started. Or better yet why does he even have a limited amount of power. The place is presumably connected to the power grid and the grid is not so strapped for power that keeping a security cam and two doors running for six hours is beyond it capabilities. It's stupid.
I am aware though that they hired the security guard to keep them inside and busy and not to guard them.
To give a summary, some drawfag in the Five Nights at Freddie's general is making an image dedicated to all the people in the general, but mainly artists' interpretations of the animatronics are shown. It's basically another /vg/ circlejerk like usual.
Oh... I get it now. I thought it was a weird, unfinished follow up for that "Five Knights" joke image.
Pretty much this. It's a simple game with a neat concept that exploded in popularity due to the low bar of entry (gameplay is just navigating monitors and it can run on a toaster) and lots of Youtube coverage.
There's nothing sinister or cancerous about the game itself. It's just overrated.
Why do the doors open when there's no power left...if there's no power left?
If foxy was sad, what would you do to cheer him up?
The guard should really have recorded all this shit and sold it to the news and started filing lawsuits. Would be fucking rich. A pizza joint filled with evil animatronics powered by the ouls of dead children that literally come to life and try to murder you. Footage of Foxy alone would be worth a fortune in lawsuits.
I still question the whole FnF universe though if they had fully functioning robots in the 70s because thats what they are. They are fully autonomous with an AI capable of thinking and problem solving and a full range of motion comparable to that of a human being. Fucking assimo isn't as maneuverable as these fucking things.
And they have all of this tech at a fucking pizza joint where a guy in a costume would be a thousand times less expensive than self-aware robots who are possessed by dead children.
Despite what the white-guilt penis-envy indie gaming press would want you to believe, Gone Home is not the standard for all other indie games to be compared to. Being better than Gone Home is not an achievement.
That said, I have no idea why people are so butthurt by FNaF.
People tend to have their own indie horror favorites that are not as popular as FNaF and get mad that they are not getting attention that they believe their favorites should get.
It's like fat girl A getting mad that fat girl B is getting attention from the jock because of some dress she wore with dicks all over it. When Fat girl A has a dress with balls all over it that she thinks should be getting her attention.
It doesn't matter of course because they are both fat and the jock was only doing it because it made him more popular and got people to subscribe to his channel and his patreon.
Also probably because of the furries.
Nothing I've said was against it. I merely pointed out why people would dislike it. You see what you want to see and if you want to see butthurt you will find it wherever you look. I like to be an armchair psychologist on the internet. It's fun
Game is alright. Lots of tension built up by wondering where whatshisface and thatdamnrabbit are. People complain about jumpscares, but since they only happen when you lose
and that one time with bonnie in the back roomIt's just another reason to do better.
Fanbase is equal parts horrifying and pretty neat. On one hand you have all of the porn. On the other hand you have stuff like this.
which falls under neat or cringe depending.
Game needs more Golden Freddy-type of shit. It would make the existing game more interesting by adding more hallucinatory versions of the trio.
Imagine if the game changed your wallpaper under certain conditions, or just fucked with your desktop in various, subtle ways. I love that kind of shit in games.
How would you define indie horror games in the context of high school archetypes? If it was popular well-funded and mainstream it would be a hot girl. Indie games are fat girls until they hit mainstream and and no longer qualify and indie and become hot girls.
If you have a better comparison please tell me.
Comparing indie games to fat girls because they aren't popular is an awful comparison. A fat girl would be a bad game of any kind. The obvious, and more correct, comparison for an (unpopular) indie game would be an unpopular girl.
Games don't stop being indie when they become popular, by the way. It seems like no matter the subject, you have no idea what you're talking about.
I'm going to admit you are right that an unpopular girl is a better comparison because it is. However it is clear you are butthurt about any slight toward Indie games even if they are imagined. So you might want to put some ointment on that.
The game use it's limitations very well. The 90sesque pre-rendered graphics made things more unnerving for some reason and the fact that you couldn't do much about your situation really built up the tension.
It's short lived though and once people figured out all the events and how to survive them, it lost it's edge. There's no denying it did well anyway.
Eh, I prefer more Eternal Darkness tier stuff instead.
