Scott Cawthon, creator of Five Nights At Freddy’s, the survival horror game that has caught the world by storm last year and spawned three sequels (all in a year), has pulled his latest Freddy game, Five Nights at Freddy’s World (a turned based RPG) because he was not satisfied by it, and promised full refunds to everyone. He plans on rereleasing the game when it is up to his standards.
Hi everyone, I wanted to make a post about the fate of FNaF World. Even though the game had a “Very Positive” rating with 87%, I was not satisfied with the reviews and ratings it was getting.
For that reason, I’ve decided to remove the game from Steam. I’ve also asked Valve to make it so that the game can be refunded regardless of the amount of the time it has been owned, meaning that anyone can get a refund at any time. It may take them a while to set that up, but it will be in place soon.
I’m still going to work on FNaF World and polish it up. I’m busy creating a fully 3D overworld for the game. When I’m ready to update the game, I will replace the demo currently on GameJolt with the full game. From this point forward, the game will always be free.
I appreciate your support, and I encourage you all to refund your Steam game (even if you enjoyed the game), and download the new version when it becomes available on GameJolt. 🙂

Could this be the beginning of the end of the Five Nights franchise? Me, I never really got into it, but I can get why others really like it, the problem is he over saturated the market to quickly and for something like that, all it takes is one false step to spell your doom. So what do you think dear reader?
