Five Nights at Freddy's
Discuss the game
Currently an indie title on Greenlight.
Spooky horror robbits, it's pretty good.
Internet was acting a little fucky for a few minutes there, but the uploading is back on course.
>Phone rings during the regular days, friendly man says "Hello, it's me" and gives you tips and hints through the time you play.
>Seems helpful and gives good advice, acting as a tutorial
During gameplay a sign will appear saying "It's me", at the pirates cove / when Freddy is about to get you. We are watching.
>tfw the phone guy taught you how to deal with everybody besides the peaceful Freddy
>tfw it gave you the false feeling of safety because you simply have to react to stuff in advance
FREDDY SUDDENLY GOES FULL AGGRO ON YOUR SORRY ASS
FREDDY WAS PHONE AND DIDN'T TELL YOU WHAT HIS OBSCURE CUES ARE
FREDDY PURPOSELY LEFT A HOLE IN YOUR TECHNIQUE SO HE CAN SAVOR THE TASTE OF YOUR SALTY, SWEATY BOIPUSSY FOR MANY TIMES TO COME
>tfw anal prolapse
second part for markiplier is up
>rabbit asshole right outside the door
>keep doors closed hoping it'll last until day time
>post in wrong thread
Had to restart the upload since it was frozen on 58% for a while, but now it's past that hurdle.
I don't understand Pirate's Cove. He hates being watched, so you need to watch him? For the longest time I thought that meant DON'T watch him, or you piss him off.
Has anyone figured out how Freddy himself works?
Third, I don't think this game is optimized. The rabbit literally showed up a minute into the game and stayed at the door for four hours, never moving. I never even touched the cameras and I still ran out of power. Seems unfair?

Your hard work is appreciated. That doesn't mean you're trusted. If someone with sandboxie or something similar could get the file scanned and supply the MD5 that'd be really cool for a lot of people.
His horror videos are the only tolerable ones, and even then they're a noticeable drop in quality from his older work. I wish he never got popular so he wouldn't have started making all these awful collaboration videos filled with funny hawhaws and cool jokes for kids.
It's more like I subscribed to his channel for horror videos, and now the personality he's developed from the collaboration videos has spilled over into them. He used to provide much more commentary and analysis on the games as opposed to making overdone jokes. If he would stop putting so much effort into trying to make his jokes work, the quality of his work would significantly increase.
On day five their behavior no longer matters, the game teaches you to play in a way that makes you look for certain actions and triggers so you can be prepared for them but on day 5 they act randomly and exploit your flawed way of playing.
I'm a little sad that the stream is game audio only. I don't think I could watch a stream of a game like this without some kind of commentary. I'd get bored pretty quick, and I enjoy hearing the player's thoughts on what's going on. Anyone know of any other decent streams of this?
So far HarshlyCritical and CoryxKenshin are the only real niggas I've seen play this, because they're giving genuine reactions.
I wish people would realize there's not a fucking quota on banshee wails per-minute when recording a horror game. Are you legitimately spooked by the game? Good, give your real reactions and record it. Are you completely nonplussed by it? Good, that is also funny to watch, record it. Being the 10000000th person to ape fucking PDP isn't entertaining.
>both decent streamers are using hitbox
>hitbox almost instantly disconnects me from the net for some reason
At least I can hear about anything of note here...
Posting for the sake of people nothing watching the stream. From Vlad's stream.
>So folks, after almost 15 hours of scares, suffering and tears, We have finally finished Five nights at freddy's. I want to thank all of you, the viewers, that were here supporting the run, I really appreciate it. Now, I'm sorry but I must say that I'm officially done with the game, If you missed any of the nights, Please go watch the recordings in this channel, below the stream. If you feel like staying now, Let me know which game you would like to see, and I'll play it for you all. Again Thanks for watching.
Other than the game file supposedly increasing in size according to Vlad (he hasn't posted ANY proof, and the game is just an executable) it doesen't seem that freddy actually learns.
He seems very unpredictable to me and just randomly attacks after day 5.
What are you doing outside of your suit friend. You know that's against the rules
Can confirm that it works
Thank you anon. now I don't have to for it to get greenlight on steam or download that desura shit (will be buying it when it does since the dev deserves the money)
>sentient robots that roam around at night
what is stopping them from leaving the joint and causing devastation
The animatronics you defend yourself from are just robots, who think you're a robot skeleton without a suit on and are trying to force you into one, which would kill you because of the parts already inside them. It's possible for them to be humans because the previous guard managed to leave a message after he was stuffed into a suit and killed. He probably isn't one of the animatronics you see because this picture is what it looks like when a human gets put in a suit.
Okay, i'll definitely keep an eye on this and maybe download the demo. Thanks for not being a dick.
no dicks here friend
unless you use your imagination
This game is gonna blow the fuck up once it hit steam
>Only known survivors are yourself and another security guard who are both locked in well protected security chambers overlooking Keter class creatures, you keep contact by radio, with the other security guard reassuring you and guiding you through the steps to hopefully contain or at least hinder the escaped SCPs so that you can meet up and ride this shit out.
>In between points where you need to lock yourself in the office, there are points where the other security guard guides you through the facility to get safe SCPs that greatly increase your stamina and durability so that you can eventually make the break to the other guard's impenetrable security station, which overlooks one of the most dangerous Keters of all, and maybe have a chance at containing it.
>You finally make a break for it, by this point being nearly indestructible thanks to all of the SCP's you're using, the office slowly opens, and you see the guard slumped over the chair, and reveals that on his face was SCP-35 the whole time, and it was the one using his body to communicate with you.
>The whole breach was orchestrated by the mask and it was grooming you to make a vessel durable enough not to decay when it wears the mask.
>You are become death, destroyer of worlds
This should be a part of the next OP, whenever that is.
NO, YOU CAN'T JUST WEAR A FUCKING SUIT BECAUSE THEY'LL JUST SHOVE THE ENDOSKELETON INSIDE
NO, THE SUIT THAT SHOWS UP IN THE ROOM WHEN FREDDY FUCKS WITH YOU IS NOT A TIGER OR LION OR SOME OTHER SHIT, IT'S THE EMPTY FREDDY SUIT THAT YOU GET SHOVED INTO WHEN YOU DIE
YOU TAKE THE $4/HOUR JOB BECAUSE IT'S A FUCKING VIDEO GAME
THE DOORS USE ELECTRICITY TO CLOSE TO KEEP THEM FROM BEING A FIRE HAZARD
THE ONLY SLIGHTLY LEGIBLE THING IN DAY 5's AUDIO RECORDING IS "THE JOY OF CREATION", AND EVEN THEN WE'RE STILL NOT SURE IF THAT'S IT
THERE IS CURRENTLY NO SPECIAL CODE (THAT WE'RE AWARE OF) TO INPUT ON DAY 7
>THE ONLY SLIGHTLY LEGIBLE THING IN DAY 5's AUDIO RECORDING IS "THE JOY OF CREATION", AND EVEN THEN WE'RE STILL NOT SURE IF THAT'S IT
Is it not agreed that it's "reap the joy of creation"
this is night 6.
it's reversed on that night because things get CUHRAZEE
Version 1.1 installer, now on a different site.
The guard who teaches you about everything lulls you into a false sense of safety by basically explaining to you that the only thing you have to do is to react in advance to the basics - blind spots and robot movement. He also tells you about the game mechanics, and since everything he told you is true you have no reason not to believe him.
The thing is, there is no word about Freddy who goes fucking aggro on day 5 and seems to haywire routines of other robots - they start shaking and act more erratic, unpredictable. Instead of adapting and looking for new cues, the player clings to what he knows - an obsolete, flawed technique that will only get you killed.
Basically, if you look at Pirate Cove even ONCE during the 6th night you are already dead, because Freddy changed Foxy's behavior. You have to stalk Freddy instead (who was peaceful during first 4 days, excluding the time when you run out of power), because he can vibrate through the sealed door if he gets close. He also baits you with Chica.
During the last two days there is also another game mechanic introduced - Bonnie and Chica can permanently jam your doors if you don't pay attention to them. It's nowhere mentioned but is a total pain in the ass because it's basically game over - you die if you check the camera, and if you don't Foxy (day 5) or Freddy (day 6) will fuck you up.
HOW THE FUCK DO YOU GET THE 3RD STAR
HOW THE FUCK DO YOU ACCESS THE KITCHEN
I don't understand the fags that assert the game takes place in the future just because "The Bite of 87" is ambiguous in that it could potentially mean 2087 rather than 1987. What other reason is there to believe it takes place over 70 fucking years in the future? Why would they still be using garbage animatronics almost a century from now? In fact, why would they even still have stupid arcade pizza places for little kids' birthday parties when those were really only a popular thing in the late 80s and 90s and no one goes to fucking Chuck E. Cheese anymore?
How's that backdoor RAT screamer coming along? Updated and fresh for the 1.1.exe?
No, I won't,
even if it kills me.
No problem. I'm in awe of the developer for fucking with people on this level, that's some triple-reverse-psychology stuff. Also all those little secrets and lore bits, you can clearly tell there was a lot of love put into the game.
I still think there is a secret code somewhere that enables the video feed in the kitchen. I would cum buckets if pic related would become reality.
All the bullshit the dude on the phone tells you is a fucking lie. The animatronics don't have an A.I. protocol that allows them to free-roam at night and repair naked mechanical endoskeletons/unmechanized animal suits. That barely makes any sense for a reason. Isn't it obvious from all the shaky reassurances that the robots aren't dangerous and aren't trying to hurt you that he's full of shit? He's lying to you so he can leave the job, because you're his replacement and he doesn't want to keep working at a fucking haunted pizza place where the mascots try to kill you.
/v/ had plenty of people pushing the cyberpunk dystopia theory last night, but I assumed they just really enjoyed how absurd it is. Same reason why people kept saying you must be playing as an illegal immigrant if you're willing to die for 120 bucks.
The guy on the phone uses a tactic very obviously meant to lead the player to believe the eyes and teeth are human when he says the only thing that would see the light day if you were stuffed inside the suit would be SPECIFICALLY, "Your eyes and your teeth"
aw shit guys, the guy who posted the 2 E.hall posters has more stuff to tell:
Some other things I noticed but wasn't quick enough to grab:
- When the "missing children" article replaces the "Rules of Safety" poster, the posters of the characters in the other part of the east hall are replaced with posters of simple cartoon faces that appear to be screaming in horror and crying profusely.
-When the "Pizzeria closing" article is there, the character posters are gone and IT'S ME is scrawled on the walls.
-The picture of Freddy in the west hall corner may change to show him taking apart and removing his head.
And a couple things that are normal, but still interesting:
-There are no Foxy heads in the back room.
-When Chica is on stage, they're holding the eyeball cupcake that you have a model of in the guardroom.
This. They also start having violent strokes during later days and you experience those fucking screen-flickers. This place is clearly haunted.
My theory is that the place has been rundown and closed down for years. The job advertisement was printed because
Freddy is a fucking evil possessed unholy mix of flesh and machine that wants to murder random desperate poorfags. OR you are that one kid that survived "the tragedy" and after many years the puppets invited you to reunite and join their club.
So wait, are the animatrons being animated by the malignant spirit of the man who murdered those kids after he was executed?
And how long ago did that incident happenand why did the BIte of 87' seem o have no effect on business?
The kids aren't in the suits, the kids were killed by the robots and then it was covered up by the manager, just like how the previous sec guard tells you that if you die they will clean the premises and file a missing persons report 90 days after.
You may be onto something, the place is clearly run down and doesn't looklike it has ever been clean, your chracter would only ever show up at 12am anyway, he has no idea how the place is during its supposed hours of operation.
I say he was tricked into becoming the next victim.
If they were able to press charges against someone then there was clearly an actual human being involved in this mess at one point. Someone besides the owner, at the very least. Maybe the previous security guard.
There's basically two options - either the machines killed people and somebody was caught covering it up and blamed for it, or somebody killed people to make the machines and was caught after that.
Your job isn't to contain the horror.
You're a victim and they've successfully lured you in to kill.
Thats why you get fired at the end. Because they're butthurt that they haven't managed to get you.
So, hypothetically, and I know this question gets thrown around a lot, but couldn't you still hide inside of an animal costume?
I mean, how would they know there's no anamatronics inside?
"It’s amazing that the human body can live without the frontal lobe."
Now we know who you really are, and why you can't move out of the chair to flee the horrors closing in on you.
The power of logic.
You see, when they remove their own costume in order to put it on me, I can then exclaim that they are in violation of their own protocol. They will then correct their mistake by redressing themselves and leaving to find a spare suit from storage, giving me ample time to play with the light switches some more.
Deep in the night you think everythings right, tell it to yourself, say it's just a nightmare, something is telling you nothing can change where you are.
It's Freddy. Speaking of SH I'd love for a sequel where you're able to leave your station and explore the building finding the secrets of the lore, but here's the catch. if a animatronic finds you, you're dead the only way to ward them off is to run back to your station while they give chase and slam the door in their face. alternatively you can just sit at your station all night..but you won't find any lore the pussy way will you?
Basically ya gotta have balls if you want that lore.

Holy shit this is an entirely new level of fucked up.
I love it.
Fuck slender man. Fuck people who play this game on streams only to hoard more viewers while they overreact in front of their webcams. Those neat little details that 99% of people won't ever notice is way scarier than the gameplay itself, and that's something since the tension and atmosphere are goat.
it's probably that there's no space inside to begin with because it has all the wiring and shit inside
If the nightmare crew can't stuff you into one without turning you into blood slurry you ain't fucking getting in one willingly m8
>Yfw the fox runs at the speed of sound.
>If he sees you running is not an option.
Can someone explain why this thread was moved to /vg/ again?
Does vodka in the form of a computer shaped nineteen eighty-four republican convention collector's flask do anything to electronics? If not I'm fucked to the wall.
OH MY FUCKING GOD
SUDDENLY EVERYTHING MAKES SENSE
>The frontal lobes also play an important part in retaining longer term memories which are not task-based. These are often memories associated with emotions derived from input from the brain's limbic system. The frontal lobe modifies those emotions to generally fit socially acceptable norms.
what >>76912276 said.
Plus people were posting literal bestiality and shitty fapfics in addition to furfaggotry abounds on /v/.
The threads here on /vg/ have been okay so far, but I doubt that will last long. Enjoy while you can.
The game seems to be trending rather well so a more expansive and more expensive sequel could happen, I personally want it to be either a job guarding the factory these things are made in with some free roam elements or a job guarding a theme park populated with these things. with some free roam elements.
You could do so much, the robots eyes light up when they spot you and different robots react differently, some will scream and call others nearby, or some will run after you, doors that once locked can only be opened in the control room forcing players to plan their routes when exploring, the main power station will sometimes go out so occasionally you will have to make a run to turn it back on. Heaps of new Animal "buddies". Really there is a mountain of potential for this game.
They just shove you into one.
There are other suits to shove you in.
They probably drag it with them just so they can snag you and start shoving you in right after grabbing you.
That's why they move so slow or end up fucking about, to make sure they have a suit just for you when they grab a hold of you and freak you the fuck out with that scream.
The live show costumes look different than the animatronics shells. They'd pick up on the difference right away and note how strange it is that one of the 'others' is up and about at this hour, instead of during the day. Not to mention why it isn't communicating with them. And then once they pull the big goofy head off and see your skeleton-looking ass staring back they'd flip their shit and ruin yours.
Story so far
>Freddies is a pizza place like chuck e cheese
>5 kids disappear one day
>Bite of 87 happens
>freddies closes down
>kids start haunting the suits
>Freddy calls you and is like "yo wanna job"
>its all a ruse to get people to die
except that there was
when we first started streaming we noticed two sets of teeth in the ducks mouth, human eyeballs on the loading screen bear head and broken teeth inside the mouth
the phone call talks about your eyes and teeth popping out when stuffed into the costumes by the robots
then the creator of the game says "you can actually find out why the characters are haunted if you're really observant"
so we did
now we know 5 children died in the place and another kid got his skull bitten in half
Time for a long-ass theory.
The robots are not sentient,
they are haunted by four of the children. This may explain why the robots scream at you once they find you. The child who took over Foxy probably died first. He was scared SHITLESS by the man who killed him and the other children, and ran like hell to get away from him, but he ultimately met his demise. This is why Foxy sprints towards your ass unlike the other robots. The child who took over Chica was probably fat, since the character he possessed is apparently some sort of chicken (which is a popular edible meat) with the apron saying "Let's eat!" The child who took over Freddy was older and braver than the other children, and accepted his fate. This may explain how Freddy only really attacks on the last few nights, because he's smarter and more haunted than the other robots. Foxy, because of his cowardice, was more fucked up than the others. It's assumed that Foxy is the one who bit off someone's lobe in 1987, because of his run-down state. This incident lead to the closure of Pirate Cove. The staff-only room? It's the Kitchen. The camera that shows the kitchen is blocked because they don't want you to find out a horrible secret.
That's all I can think of so far.
No. That's not the "story so far". It's just speculation by people on /v/.
The game take a few hours at most to complete and now everyone doesn't have anything else to talk about. We've ended up with wild speculation and over analysis of the game's "story".
They don't want to hurt you, for that wouldn't help them.
They must disable you to place you into the suit.
Therefore, their paralyzing scream and incredible robot strength will keep you in place as they force you into the suit.
Don't close the doors unless absolutely necessary.
Flick the lights to see if there is nobody in the blindspot waiting to get inside.
Frequently check on Foxy in the Pirate Cove.
That's it, first 4 days are easy.
Then the rules change.
>Actually quite enjoy grumps
really though, god damn, why is pewdiepie so ass. I've been watching him ever since he was some random fuckoff in front of a camera shitting his pants at horror games. Maybe 06, 07'. Really liked him back then. Now we're both the same age and he acts like he's 12, but you still see old glimpses of the man who once had fun making videos. Just go look at his Journey videos - he nearly starts crying at it, for god's sake.
you are now aware that the freddie-like abominations of youtube are of our own making
I thoroughly believe that "the animatronics think you're an endoskeleton without a suit so they want to put you inside one." it's just a excuse from the guy trying to rationalize why they act the way they do.
Just by the fact of they know when you are watching the cameras and they will stare at you through the cameras and so hellbent on trying to catch you off guard.
ITs a logical conclusion based on the fact that the goddamn place is closed down but you get offered a job anyway
Who the fuck else would call you in for work
use your goddamn brain
That's why I left out Bonnie, because he's kinda generic compared to the others. There's nothing really unique about him that I can dissect.
the kitchen is where the man killed the five children, not backstage.
Thank you, I think I'm starting to get it however I have one problem with what you're saying about flickering the lights in the blindspots.
During Night 2, the Bunny was standing in the room next to me so I closed the door, checked the other feeds for a short time then checked the room with the Bunny and he disappeared, I opened the door (big mistake, I know) to flicker the light, I saw him standing there and a loud music cue was played, I tried to close the door but to no avail. Then I died. I thought the Bunny went away after I closed the door but nope. Is there anything you can do when that happens? Maybe I didn't wait enough.
I was thinking more, you can shoot it, and it'll "damage" it, knocking parts of the costume off, all except the inner frame. It wont slow them down or do anything, but it'll give you some hope that maybe you can do something (but can't in reality)
>Watchguard #0 tried this after the first night
>They just become more wildly with no one to watch them
>Freddy suspicious his new friend might not be following the rules
>Locks him up during the days, and assaulted by the crazy machines at night
>Slowly goes insane/Gets his shit together to entertain the kids during the day
>Now Freddies' new friend 'Bonnie' can smell out fake suits from dummies who are trying to skate the rules
>Because all of the other suits have the rotting child victims inside/Just robots and don't smell like flesh at all
We're talking about expansion, because we want them to be able to do more of the same thing. The only person who suggested weaponry in the first place directly said the idea was it would only be a fake mechanic that does nothing.
>Mark was on night 1
>Nothing was happening
>Go to this stream instead
>Hes on night 6
>Talks about staying in the room so the fox can't kill him
>Can't bear to even watch this game in full screen
>Still scares the shit out of me.
I Don't think I have the balls to unpause
How about this:
>new game introduces power shortage and a "helper"
>night starts you with less than 100% energy
>but you get a small remote-controlled robot who can bring back fuel for the panel
>thing is the fuel is located in different parts of the place
>and if the animatronics spot it, they tip it over, rendering it "dead" for the night
>and even then, you still have to keep the doors open for an amount of time to let the robot in so you can grab the fuel from him
If there was to be an expansion to this game, I'd want it to be allowing a short period before and after your shift to explore the abandoned place and see what's going on, with it specifically being too short to see everything each night.
all these idiots want to turn this into a generic hide and fight the bad guys and lose all spooky tension
The robots would stop being scary not of this world beings and become just robots.
go play "sir, you are being hunted." fags
I'm helping others because I'm too scared to play it myself but at this point I'm obsessed with the game and I NEED to discover more secrets. Also I'm afraid to go to bed because of nightmares.
You think there might be significance to the typical paths each character takes?
Here's my take on it:
Bonnie always takes the left side through the dressing room. She was killed in the dressing room.
Chica always takes the right side, through the bathroom and the kitchen. She was either killed in the bathroom or the kitchen, though the "LET'S EAT" bib and the general mystery of the kitchen leads me to believe it was probably the kitchen.
Foxy was obviously killed in Pirate Cove.
Freddy could have possibly been killed backstage.
>Decide to see what the fuss is about
>Installed the game, currently open in background on main menu
help the bear is scary
For fuck's sake, tons of other popular youtubers like Markiplier were playing this goddamn game before I saw even one fucking thread on /v/ about it.
Get your heads out of your asses. We're all riding the same fucking bandwagon as the kids who are going to inevitably find out about it when PDP plays it.
>americans getting a-scurred over da bad deemns in the broken dancing skeleton toy
i genuinely thought this was going to be a spooky scary skeletons video
>place is out of business and management is lone gone
>schedules for demolition some time in the future since no one wants to touch the place with a 10 foot pole
>guy gets offered a security job there
>but how did he get in without a key?
>keep watching vids and streams because I like to watch the players squirm
>still keep my tongue physically in the back of my mouth out of fear of being caught off guard and biting it
That's possible too. I just figure there might be something to the fact that they take semi-fixed paths through the building, although from a gameplay perspective that's obviously to make the player keep track of both sides of the building at all times and so they'll never feel safe from either side, and also so there can't ever be two robots in the same room at the same time.
What if Foxy was the owner of the building? There are no other aspects of that suit in the backroom and there's also the fact that he's the only one to hide from you on the first night, as if he wants to hide his shame. Once he realizes that you're watching him, judging him, is when he goes nuts.
>derping around on day 1 of demo to try for screenshots of posters & stuff changing, without having to really worry about robutts
>occasionally Foxy's curtain will be open
>"Huh, guess he randomly gets shown off early sometimes"
>keep switching cameras
>come back, Foxy's standing fully outside of the curtain
NO, FUCK YOU, I'M STILL ON NIGHT 1, I DIDN'T SIGN UP FOR THIS SHIT
oh man, I can't stop laughing
my stomach hurts and I'm literally crying right now
