A fail-safe probably. Only locks when supplied with power. If there were a fire and power went out, people would have a chance to escape without being trapped behind a metal door.
>no idea where they are
>can't outrun red sanic
>all doors are locked
>all lights are out
>fiddling with locks and keys in the dark with killer animatronics rapidly approaching you
>not just turning off that damn fan and locking both doors
>doors are stuck open
>you have to spend power to keep them closed
>closing them burns through power like its cool
Seriously shitty power management simulator minigame. The doors have no reason to work that way.
flick between freddy fazdogg and foxy asspirate every like 5 seconds, don't even need to see the screen, just flick between em then put the camera down for a sec.
forget the rabbit and the chicken, just hit the lights occasionally and close the door if they're out there
I would say that makes sense but then why would the player sign up for this job.
Even then, the guy acts like he doesn't even give a shit that there are killer robot furries running about.
>People constantly making comics about Foxy.
>Whenever one of the characters speaks in a comic, it's always Foxy.
Foxy is a shit, Freddy is the boss.
That's actually how emergency doors work, they're held down by an electromagnet and pulled open by a weighted mechanism. They open up to prevent people from getting trapped in rooms in case of fires or other shit in a disaster. Still no idea why they'd be in a crappy pizza joint though.
They're obviously weighted to stay up in case of power failure.
So that if there is a power failure the guard doesn't get trapped in a tiny room until someone comes in the next morning to rescue him. Or if there was a fire, come in the next morning to find his charred remains.
They burn power because they' have to fight against the weights that usually keep the doors up.
Also it doesn't matter if you do close both doors, freddy and golden freddy can still get you.
maybe he's a scooby doo and wants to solve the mystery but he can't go to the haunted mansion down the street because of all those meddling stairs
Would this game work better if they actually let you walk around in the rooms?
Like lets say you can hang in the security room and actually play with all of the shit in there, and if you walk out of the doors it's pretty much a death wish.
I feel like that would at least feel more immersive.
Oh good, a Freddy thread. I'm going to post something spooky that happened to me hat I've looked up everywhere online, including official and non-official wikis, youtube, and google, and found no one sharing experiences of.
First, a little setup.
You guys know about "Golden Freddy" right? The rusted suit of teleporting HOLY SHIT GET AWAY that can instantly gib you if you're too paralyzed by fear at his gruesome visage?
He appears rarely on days 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and Extra, but rather commonly on day 1 in the room directly left of the Security room. The picture there is most commonly (about 99% of the time) a regular picture of Freddy. Though sometimes the picture is distorted and static, and sometimes it's a picture of a lifeless yellow freddy head.
If you see the empty eyed face and exit the camera, an empty suit spawns in your chamber and you have about 2 or 3 seconds to bring up your camera or else he kills you with the most horrifying scream I've ever heard, along with the topper of completely crashing your game. No Game Over screen, nothing.
Now, me and a friend were fucking around, trying to find him. We restarted day 1 over and over again and just couldn't get the picture to change. So we play the game normally after a time and make it to Night 5. We fail a few times and we're about to change places, we were taking turns playing the game.
Then OUT OF FUCKING NOWHERE on the FUCKING GAME OVER SCREEN, THE GOLDEN FUCKER SPAWNS,
IN THE GAME OVER SCREEN. I'M FUCKING SERIOUS. The game over screen lasts about 10 seconds normally, showing that you fucking suck and you have to look at your eyeballs popping out of a suit. But no, this game over screen only lasted about 5 seconds, and after that, Golden Freddy fucking pops up, screams at us, and crashes the game.
We were COMPLETELY off guard, because we had already died. What the fucking fuck.
I've yet to see anyone else testify about this incident.
>try it out
>survive till night 3
>look at pirate cove
>see someone peeking through
>ill keep an eye out on you m8
>do the usuall stuff, check light cams etc except pirate cove
>instinct tells me to check pirate cove
>check all cameras
>see him run towards me
>mfw i saw him run
>mfw i still managed to close the door
fucking foxy man he scares the shit out of me
It's counterweighted. The doors are passively open due to counterweights either above them or to the sides of them in the walls.
It's in case of emergencies, in case buildings run out of power, or a fire breaks out, heavy blast doors like those will NOT trap people inside to be left to die.
Most heavy doors like that in buildings use counterweights, and use electricity to magnetically seal them.
It's quite obvious. The reason you're even hired is to be killed and stuffed into a suit.
In fact, the night 5 recording is just the Night 1 recording backwards, which lends to us the possibility that the entirety of the phonecalls are prerecorded, and the guy is already dead.
Holy shit this game is actually good, unlike outlast and amnesia
Penumbra was lame.
In the first, the monsters were slow, dumb and could be killed with a few swipes from a broom.
In the second, simple small objects that you could jump on and poor pathfinding bested the pursuing creatures.
And then the third was just a boring fucking environmental puzzle game.
>In fact, the night 5 recording is just the Night 1 recording backwards
That's just wrong
If you listen to it backwards you can clearly hear it mention a factory and the joy of creation, neither of which are in the first call.
A lot of the questions people ask about the game when they start playing are answered in the lore you get from reading the posters and news clippings on the walls, you can read them all through the cameras.
The game takes place at some point in the span of 1988 through 1990. You may notice that robotics weren't so great back then, and these are just animatronic dolls besides. It's pretty blatant that the robots gain their power and sapience via the children that were stuffed inside of them, all of the things the previous guard says are just his own justifications to keep his sanity. The robots were purposefully created in this way by the Fazbear company (night 5 scrambled recording). With the restaurant itself shut down and due to close entirely, the guards are intended sacrifices to either keep the existing robots contained in the building or simply to produce more robots.
That's basic lore stuff, a bigger spoiler ahead I won't reveal entirely though since the game is worth playing and exploring for yourself:
There's a serious reason why the player's character is working there. Look the posters/drawings and especially read the news clippings carefully. Then go and listen well to the recordings of the previous guard, there's two particularly key things he says that tie in with the other info spread around the restaurant. Realize who you are then.
>1988 through 1990
Bullshit. The creator of the game said you access the security camera through a tablet device, a kind of creation made popular in 2011 onward.
Stop talking out of your ass.
>tablets have only existed in the past 3 years
Also I'm pretty sure a downtrodden place like Freddy's would have access to state of the art tech for free use of its 4 dollar an hour employees unless it was mass produced or gifted to them.
But I digress, post a source or shut up.
So whats the deal with the past security guard?
The phone calls are obviously prerecordings, but for what purpose I don't know.
The main character must have a reason to stay here past night one, where the obvious threats are made clear, and the pay certainly isn't worth getting literally murdered.
Yet stay he does, so long in fact that he gets fired, presumably for NOT dying, when they wanted him to die.
Freddy Fozbear is now voiced by John Goodman.
How cool would that be?
There's zero bait in my post.
My description of each of the three Penumbras are perfectly accurate.
The monsters in the first two are a joke and the third has no threats except shit like fall damage and pain fields while you complete elementary physics puzzles.
>you are the guard in the warehouse collecting all the defunct Freddy's Pizza shit to store before eventual auction/liquidation so there's a lot more animatronics and a larger variety
>the building is a lot larger than Freddy's, and you gain the ability to roam room-by-room at the cost of not being in a safe-room
>if you roam into a room occupied by an active animatronic, or they roam into the room you are in, you're done
>goal is to last to the end of your temporary employment contract (2 weeks)
>after that you can take a new contract: the boss decided to destroy the animatronics as nobody wanted them. guard for 2 more weeks
>the animatronics, knowing their death is coming, get batshit insane AI
>you can either outlast your contract or create a way to lure the animatronics to their deaths inside the warehouse
>obviously the death route is super risky to set up and will take several nights of work before it is ready
Somehow managed to survive the robots long enough for him to understand how they worked, and rationalised the whole MAN-EATING ROBOTS thing as "They think you're an animatron without a suit", left a serie of recorded messages to help you survive (debatable if he recorded them all on the same day, or if he simply checked out before you arrive). Eventually Freddy got him and he's prrrrobably inside Chica
Well the Night 5 Recording, when slowed down and played backwards, has many parts of the Night 5 Recording, which is to mean that during Night 5, all four of the recordings are rewound for the next victim to work at the restaurant.
You're obviously here to be KILLED, but why do you stay? That's what I want to know. Maybe you know someone who died here?
Looks like stealth marketed "indie" fotm shit. I skimmed the trailers and I feel like I've seen everything, including the (crappy) jump scares. Looks like and is probably trash just like Papers Please, The Stanley Parable, Journey, Binding of Isaac, DayZ etc. But hey enjoy falling for viral. I'll be sure to viral on /v/ too whenever I make a crappy "indie" game.
I'm convinced half the threads aren't even viral anymore. People just want to spam furry pics and ERP, and the animatronic-focused game acts as a good cover.
The game itself may be the focus for now, but give it a little time.
> guard now controls all the doors and lights of the building, stay in his room, same gameplay
> janitor needs to clean around and flip switch to grant the guard electric power
> both rely on each other to survive
>stealth marked indie game
There's no way some no name indie dev is going to pay someone to viral on /v/, quit shitposting
I remember when I was a teenager and I would rule 63 characters because I didn't want to be gay. It's cute that people do that well into adulthood.
For all you guys that are going 'Why would he stay?' when he is obviously in danger. His sir name is SCHMIDT. Does that not ring with your inner /pol/?
The security guy is a jew and the promise of shekels was too much to keep him out of trouble.
Seems like in every freddy thread anyone who disagrees with your favorite game you spout
This must be the epic new meme. Can't wait to see it along side, fedora and autistic
Do any of you know any GOOD videos of people playing through this game? I'm too much of a complete wussy baby to play it myself, but I'd be down to watch somebody else do it.
Unfortunately every video I've found is of some obnoxious as fuck screaming youtube celebrity asshole. I made it one minute into Markiplier's before I had enough of him making a stupid OOOOGGGHH sound after every spoken line of game dialogue. Didn't even dare start the Game Grumps one.
I just want to watch someone be scared and have fun playing this game, fuck.
I suspect he's the kid whose frontal lobe got bitten off years ago, but survived. But because of the brain damage he literally has no capability to judge that working in a hellhole with killer robots is a bad idea, that's what the frontal lobe does
>get game before viral
>no understandment of the controls at all
>just check the cameras all the time
>power doesnt go out
>game is still too spooky and I close it before night 2 starts
>watch youtube vids of it
more like because of fear of furries
Because it's too good for /v/.
So is this game worth trying out and perhaps buying later? Been seeing a couple threads about it lately but it looks like little more than jumpscares based on the trailer.
It's JUMPSCARE: THE GAME pretty much.
/v/ likes to have lore threads because the game doesn't make any sense if you start to pick at any one portion of it.
The human mind likes patterns. It has to parse data and make sense of it, so people make things.
Gee I sure do like it when people talk over the story exposition of a game to completely destroy immersion. And even more than that, I just love when people actively yell and curse at the characters in a video game. It's good. Great. Makes for very enjoyable content.
I cannot find a single good video of this game on YouTube. Fuck LPers.
I was just thinking the same thing, watching some bullshit LP'er who wouldn't stop with the "omg :O :D I'm so scared lolll"
>Also the yellow bear suit, what is it?
No one knows, although some asume it's the suit used by the guy who lured and murdered those five kids, which explains it's missing teeth and eyes-there was no animatronic inside.
>when you run out of power and freddy is at the office, if you don't move, he will kill you later than he usually does so you can hold out to 6
>the phone guy's advice about playing dead is actually legit
Does Freddy actually move around and is able to scare you before the power goes out? When I'm watching people play it, it literally is always Bonnie, Foxy, and Chica that are up and about
Are some of you guys interested in seeing a documentary about those animatronics from Showbiz Pizza Place ?
I actually watched a small documentary on it last night. The guy who made them was so goddamn excited for the future of animatronic entertainment that it almost made me feel bad.
The playing dead advice was for when you lose track of Freddy on the cameras and suspect that he is in your room. If you play dead (don't move the mouse) you have a chance of him ignoring you and moving out of the office.
Much better. Maybe not too obvious, but slightly clearer. Let obvious happen after you die like five times on the same spot. Then you'll find a big hint specific to your situation
So, it starts with the Bite, right? Chomping off a kids brain gives one of them sapience and then, wearing the suit, it brings in some kids for the other animatronics? By then, the place gets shut down for sanitary reasons.
Well ok then.
Stream in 10 minutes.
They could do some sort of multiplayer mode. I know they did a really good job of keeping the horror elements in that luigi wiiland(or whatever it's called) game. You could legit scare the fuck out of your friends which was a new experience for multiplayer
>you will never be a chubby bear that just wants a hug
I hear him as a demented Peter Renaday (87 Splinter, Billy and Mandy's Abe Lincoln) what with Freddy looking like a teddier version of the Country Bear he voiced.
Its a point and click that follows the same routine every time and isn't scary after seeing the animatronics 4 times. The game is only ideal to youtube commentators who can milk it for views like slender. Whats to like about it?
It's a small indie game that has a neat premise. Because of it's current popularity, people bring it up to discuss it because they have likely just played it for the first time themselves.
Are you new here? Do you think that the same people make these threads over and over? Do you realise how big our userbase is?
>The game is only ideal to youtube commentators who can milk it for views
I.E Every game ever.
>you will never make a mad dash from the cove to Mike's welcoming open arms.
okay, then go away and stay away
you have something seriously wrong in your head if you think being eaten is hot
you can go "but it's just a fetish" all you want but your brain shouldn't be telling you "WOW I WANNA BE EATEN THAT SOUNDS HOT"
vore is a shit fetish
>there will never be a pizzacade for grownups with foul-mouthed animatronics, high quality oven-baked pizza and a bar
Hahahahahaha great epic forcing a reddit/tumblr issue nobody on /v/ actually cares about into irrelevant things! Your parents must be so proud you stay on the computer spamming that for days non-stop!
Not him but the problem i have if why there is limited power for the doors, or at all really. you'd think they'd have a generator with doors like that, or maybe even have it running off mains
do they just charge up a giant ass battery with solar power during the day or something
pirate cove coyote running down the halls is pretty nuts, the faces of the animatronic are pretty scary initially
the sequel should have more of the animatronics moving quick through the cameras
Saw this once.
I wasn't ready for the
More animatronics, wouldn't be to bad, but he'll have to be careful with balancing. I'd say the more you add the bigger the place should be to avoid constant animatronics at the door. More random events and hidden secrets would be neat as well.
What's it like to be on the same level as horsefuckers?
I swear autism knows no bounds.
>You have a main room and 2 generator rooms
>Each one has one door which can also be closed with the screen
>Freddy and his gang will sometimes try to enter the rooms and break the generators
>A broken generator reduces your current amount of power by 50% (Two broken generators = blackout)
>You can choose to leave the office to fix the generators (only if they are broken)
>You can't walk by yourself, the game will transition from one room to another if you leave a room (maintaining the style of gameplay - the transitions will be room -> black screen -> room)
>When in a generator room, you switch between looking at the generator only (fixing it) or looking at the door only
>You don't carry the screen with you, but you can close the door from inside the room
Also the animatronics have a chance to jump in your face during the transition from room to room, depending on if they are in your path between the generator rooms.
fucking golden freddy man
mfw markiplier is the one of the first people to have been filmed surviving golden freddy and probably the only who did so without knowing about him beforehand
Most of the first bunch of posts are identical to the last thread.
Are you samefagging OP?
>putting this much thought into fucking Five Nights at Freddy;s
are you all fucking stupid? the game is a series of still images with shitty 3D models that pose in the still frames. It has a total of 4 different jumpscares, and uses fucking scare chords without shame. It has less animation in it than a fucking VN, this game took it's creators about 3 days of work, and just like Slender people are gonna jump onto this fucking train and copy it for a year until everyone finally gets sick of it. This game is mildly entertaining for about 30 minutes, how has /v/ not gotten sick of it yet?
>how discussion of vidya works in real life
"Hey bruh, you heard of this game? I've been playing it for a bit now and it's pretty cool, you should check it out."
"Alright sure I'll give it a shot." or "Nah, not my kind of game. Looks cool, though."
>how discussion of vidya works in /v/
"Hey bruh, you heard of this ga--"
"VIRAL VIRAL VIRAL VIRAL VIRAL VIRAL VIRAL VIRAL VIRAL VIRAL" or "WHO /VORE/ HERE?????"
bro, this exact thread with this exact picture in the OP has been posted nonstop for the past fucking week, nobody could actually be that excited about a game this bad without getting paid to be.
The main reason is because it has a really nice
That wouldn't be too surprising. The dev also added another way to get the jumpscare by
changing the difficulty on day 7 to spell 1-9-8-7. Apparently it also comes up if you cheat, but I haven't seen that
I thought the same way that you did with Shovel Knight. These will die down within a couple more weeks, but really, I'm still in it for the new content being created and enjoy seeing it.
This game is retarded. Resource management games usually are. You know what woul make more sense? Regular doors, with regular locks oon them that don't open automatically when the power goes out.
>implying all these furfaggots aren't already horsefuckers
Don't even expect anyone on the internet to properly react to a game like this, the internet is now full of kids that like this kind of screaming celebrity.
My friends are pussies like you so I stream the game for them and they enjoy it. Ask you friend to stream it for you.
So you mean wooden doors? Like the doors to your house? Freddy and his friends would punch through that shit like paper mache.
Yeah I guess they decided it would be a good idea to run the whole place on batteries or generators with gasoline to save money or something. Seems legit too me. Being plugged into the grid is over rated. Everyone knows the pros run their place of diesel generators and batteries I could probably write in a scenario that explains the limited power available but it doesn't change the fact its really fuckking stupid.
You're not a real security guard. You really are an animatronic endoskeleton that's tricked itself into believing it's a real person and the others are just trying to get you to understand this. That's why you black out every day at 6am.
Freddy tries to end the charade by giving you a paycheck, but you just go back to sitting in the office anyways.
>quality has gone way down recently
You'll have to reference some of his older stuff by me, I have a small folder of one of his most recent packs and I thought it was pretty good
Do you prefer to eat or be eaten? Endosoma is still the best
So I watched couple let's plays of it and as far as I can figure out points where you need to close the doors
>Left light reveals Bonnie - close left door
>Right light reveals Chika - close right door
>Nearby right camera shows Freddie - close right door
>Foxy isn't in pirate cove - close left door
Is that all? Because people for some reason keep checking pointless places like supply closet or main hall or other corridor cameras and it seems you only lose time you could use to check lights and only two cameras that show you immediate danger.
Fuck Chuck E Cheese.
Showbiz actually served decent pizza.
Fun fact: CEC actually added extra grease to their cheese blend so it would slide around more easily. You could just throw it in a ring around the outside of the pizza and it would flow in.
You have some pretty neat taste buddy.
the bulging is always great. gotta stretch that tummy out
Nah, some people just appreciate things others don't, also, if you don't have some experience in it you can't really see some of the shortcomings. I'd say it's just messier and less refined than his older stuff, and that may be because he's working out of his comfort zone.
>no chubby bear will gobble you up as you curl up in his tummy.
Yeah, there's literally no reason to check any of the cameras other than the right hallway and pirate's cove.
There's also golden freddie IIRC, you're supposed to stare at him until he goes away because if you check the camera you gon git spooked
What do you think is the best kind of pred anon?
Also good if not better, nothing but another layer of fat on the greedy pred. I prefer that but it's nice to remember just who and how many go into that gut.
Drawfag here, anyone want anything?
Same-size vore is dumb.
Size-difference vore is the best.
>fags talking about their shit fetish and ruining everything
Keep it up and I guess Moot will make a /vo/ board for you colourful cartoon tiny horse lovers level autists.
takes one to know one
samesize is great fuk u.
But then there won't be room for /mor/!
I have no fetishes at all.
He likes Krystal and Morrigan, so he like his life energy sucked out of him by a furry tribal covered with bats.
Like all of us, really.
>Implying same-size vore allows for situations like that time I roleplayed a tauren mystic who shrunk a bunch of Venture Co. workers down to size, plopped them in a bowl and shovelled them into my awaiting maw.
Enjoy your nonsensical vore, charlatans.
Greedy and eats his food with sloppy licks. Also needs to enjoy having a full belly
how about yourself anon?
>implying I dont wanna be a big meal that goes down slowly and is savoured up.
its like you dont enjoy tasting your food.
Alright, getting to autistic there son. I don't mind you fetish fags talking it up but let's try to keep it away from deviant art tier shit.
Hey, you can still savour small food. I mean, would you like a hundred little skittles or one big one?
Because it uses electromagnetism, electromagnetism works by running a current through ferrous metals and generating a magnetic field.
Now if power goes out, current stops flowing, electromagnetic field disappears and doors go open.
But you can gulp it down so quickly.
some of the fun is with the throat ya know.
teasing is great, just laying on his tummy and squishing you down for his own amusement.
golly you got some real good taste.
You CAN but, you don't have to! Just depends how big they are.
It's a good thing you asked me to stop if you think shrinking and vore are strange.
that must be the cutest fanart i've seen of the game so far :3
I guess I just find it fun being hard to eat up.
its fun to struggle.
I know a pred buddy if you wanna give me your steam or skype anon.
also we could play videogames, maybe.
I thought it was gonna be a weird funny doc. I didn't expect to fight back tears in the end.
I love it anon.
I dont mind what species you make or what kind of preds, just keep drawing~
Played this for the first time at a friends last night, the very first time looking at the poster I got the golden freddy event, luckily I'd heard about it on /v/ but jesus if the children laughing and the text that flashed up didn't half spook me.
The audio was bugged for me and the game was muted.
I watched a video and it's basically just a screamer.
I don't get why people think this game is scary, and it seems way too huge to be some sort of coordinated shitposting.
what the fuck are you talking about evidence? You talk like this game has a lore that any kind of intelligent conversation can stem from.
After night 7 you can alter the game's AI, I don't know why there needs to be a story reason for it, it's a shitty indie horror game on steam fucking greenlight
also after you complete night 7 you get fired for "tampering with animatronics"
night 3 onward there's a poster you can find, and if you drop the tablet after seeing it then a yellowish looking Freddy shows up in the room, it doesn't appear sentient like the other Animatronics, but if you look away from it then it does the laziest screamer ever and closes the game
no, it takes you to a screen with a picture of each of them with their names (which is where people get the official names from), and you can change the difficulty from 1 (inactive) to 20 (insane)
>role playing and acting out fantasies is a bit out there.
this is an image board, why do you need to use shitty 8th grade tier emoticons?
I worked it out, 5 nights at 6 hours each, 5*6=30,
30 hours, $120 is your pay
you get $4 bucks an hour for working at freddies.
Well... it's better than wal-mart.
Why do you need to get angry over it?
And sometimes emoticons just work better than images. Very rarely, sure, but sometimes. Give me one that would have worked better than the emoticon
before he screams at you, there is a split second he still has the eyepatch on.
also, while he's in pirate's cove or at the hallway running towards you, he also still has the eyepatch on.
the eyepatch flies upwards when he screams
I thought it was pretty good, I mean you can buy 2 fucking hamburgers for 5 dollars
>not drawing Foxy or chica
It's like you're trying to fuck up.
>not buying two superior chickfila sandwiches for less than the cost of one five goys burger
Being pred is most likely the better option.
you get so much more action compared to prey folks.
by weird you mean incredibly greedy, a hungry pred is always desired.
