GAMING: Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 – It’s Still… well actually it’s here now

FNAF3 release 01

Scott Cawthon has announced that Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 is finally out! Once again, Scott pulls through with a surprise release, dumbfounding those who had tried to come up with date predictions.

Out of consideration for those who haven’t played the game (it literally came out today), we will not be posting any more details about the gameplay, plot, and its twists.

Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 can be purchased for $7.99 on Steam.

GAMING: Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 – Trailer

Get ready for… whoever this guy is!

Scott Cawthon has released the trailer for Five Nights at Freddy’s 3. It features what appears to be a new character, contrary to popular assumption that it would star the Golden Freddy seen in the first and second game.

Not pictured: the fan has also made a reappearance.

The story takes place thirty years after the closing of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. A haunted house-style attraction based off of the pizzeria’s gruesome history has opened up, determined to recreate the experience for patrons.
The new building that the game takes place in is a linear haunted house, with a single entrance and exit. The interior is full of the Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza animatronics, both the decrepit originals and their scrapped redesigns. Although the original animatronics are only hollow shells of their original states, the owners of the attraction have made a shocking discovery: they’ve found a working animatronic.

Even killer animatronics remember to floss!

Currently, there is no confirmation on if the old animatronics will actually reappear as more than just background cameos. All current evidence states that the animatronic featured in the trailer and screenshots is the only functioning one.

Finally tackling the “foul odor” claims.

The Steam Greenlight page is full of screenshots revealing new gameplay elements, such as a monitor that displays a “system restart menu” that appears to control audio, camera, and ventilation systems.
The graphics and animation look to have once again been vastly improved from the previous games.

Scott Cawthon has confirmed that the game still has a ways to go before it’s finished. It’s best not to assume that any rumored dates are true.

GAMING: Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 – It’s Still (Almost) Here

It’s still me!

Scott Cawthon seems to have held true to his teasing: hot on the tail of the New Year, he’s updated his website again.

Oh boy, here we go…

With an image of what appears to be Golden Freddy, the text “I am still here”, a small 3 in the corner that only appears if you brighten the image, the filename “fnaf3.jpg”, and meta tags stating “I remain” (presumably a reference to the previous tags, which stated “only one remains”), it’s not hard to see where this is going.

This is great news, but it’s important to remember to not harass Scott Cawthon himself over the new game. He’s a busy man with a family, and just because he made Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 in such a short amount of time doesn’t mean he can do it again. If he does, it’ll be a great surprise, but it’s not something we’re entitled to.

GAMING: Five Nights At Freddy’s 3 – It’s Still A Mystery

In yet another surprising and somewhat baffling move from Scott Cawthon, ScottGames.com has been updating over the last few days in ways that aren’t immediately visible or apparent.

November 16 update (brightened)

On November 16, Scott had shut down his website, displaying only the header image and – in the center of the page – an image with the word “offline” printed on it. Brightening the image in an image-editing program revealed small text in the corner bearing the words “until next time”. (Many have noted that the alt-text on the image is “soon”, but every image on his site has had that alt-text attached for years now.)
There was a long lull in updates, wherein the fandom exploded with speculation: would this be another Five Nights at Freddy’s, or a new sequel to one of his older and less successful games? Would it be something new entirely? Was it even anything of note, or was it legitimately just Scott taking a break?

December 6 update (brightened)

On December 6, the site finally got updated again. The offline image had been changed to display a large “3” in a corner, which was once again only visible if you brightened the image. In the page source, the meta tags had been changed to the words “five, nights, at, freddys, 30 years later, only one”.

December 9 update (brightened)

Today (December 9), the offline image has been updated once again. The “3” is gone, but now (once again, only on brightening the image), you can find the words “Merry Christmas!” underneath the offline text. The tags have been changed to “five nights at freddys, taking a break, Merry Christmas everyone! :)”

We can’t know for certain if this really does confirm a Five Nights at Freddy’s 3, and we certainly can’t get too excited for the prospect of finding a Freddy Fazbear under our tree. But knowing Scott’s track record so far, we can look forward to quick and timely answers to our questions.
