Game Theory: FNAF, The New Breed

The original Five Nights at Freddy's spawned many sequels and sister games. Over the years I've played them all and through that stumbled upon the phenomena that is FNAF fan games. Games so loved by FNAF fans that those games have ALSO created their own universes - some linked to the original game and some all their own. These games have gotten so big that it's a wonder they haven't been struck down by the copyright powers that be - and there is a VERY specific reason they haven't. You see, Scott Cawthon has learned one thing that most game companies never have and likely never will - community.

    Scott when he sees a content creator of his game: Can I offer you *money* in this trying time? Disney when they see someone with a Mickey Mouse ®️ that hadn't been bought in an official Disney Store ®️: Omae wamu... Mou shindeiru... Also Disney when people critique their destructive behavior: WHY ARE YOU RUNNING?! WHY ARE YOU RUNNING?! *throws sue at fanartists*

    I hate how Nintendo squashes it’s biggest fans love letters to them. AM2R was a MASTERPIECE and Nintendo just stomped on his creation just because. It’s so sad, and Nintendo NEEDS to embrace their fans and ENCOURAGE creations like AM2R.

    Disney is also being scummy by shutting down companies like Vidangel. Vidangel lets people choose what they want to edit out of a movie and what to keep to make movies more family friendly. What does Disney do? Try to sue them out of business. Disney pretends to be a family friendly company, but attacking Vidangel is the opposite of family friendly. There are Disney owned movies that I can't edit crude jokes or swear words out of and so I won't watch with my son and I am less likely to watch myself.

    if Fnaf is boring to you just watch some Squimpus McGrimpus and MemeBear, Squimpus, though not as spoopy as MemeBear, has a complete, non-canon sub-lore surrounding their videos (Creator Gender not known) And MemeBear is full force. They both specialize in psychological horror and have revived the spoop in fnaf.

  • tolateFB

    I also feel like one of the reasons why Scott is okay with fan games and other big corporations are afraid of them is because big corporations see the individual characters as what makes their game unique. While Scott seems to have the idea that the story is what makes the game and what allows him to build his games and even help fan games flourish

  • Justin Montana
    Justin Montana21 dzień temu

    Never in my life did I expect to see Scott Cawthon and Sonic the Hedgehog, standing side by side as beacons of hope in the game industry, but I welcome it with open arms. Oh, also, if you want an example of an indie dev doing the exact opposite of what Scott is, I recommend looking into Yandere Dev, who, to abridge, has become a power hungry maniac who actively threatens and slanders people and groups trying to make fangames on account of the fact that he is literally never going to complete Yandere Simulator. THAT, is Extinguishing.

    mat bless you for donating to these fantastic game devs and for them to make their fun games easier to create :) edit: i feel ashamed that i didn't wish blessings to scott cawthon for giving these wonderful devs more accessibility so they can make their games almost as good as the fnaf games. also bless all the devs who made these good games too.

    Disney in a nutshell "-hey dude, lets take stories from the public domain and tweak some parts so that people think that our stories are the original ones." "-yes i agree. But we should also keep our own character, outside of the public domain. Anyway, we might gain millions of dollars from those story-based movies and use them to bribe the government."
