FNAF4. Long post, just ignore if you don't care.
I hear FNAF4 is being developed and honestly I’m not upset, surprised, or even remotely worried about this.
What we have here is a clear and obvious passion scott, regardless of money, he’s working on this on his own, no publisher, no other help, aside from voice actors, even then I’m not sure if they’re just his voice or not.
Scott started off making games here and there with small little gimmicks. Sit n survive being a good example. He didn’t do any big games and mostly used simple pixel stuff. The fnaf series started and he got amazing responses, it was the biggest and best thing he had done yet. Would you stop following a plan after you made your best work? No. Why would he.
The series has held an incredible trend from the start, wonderful character design, wonderful story, and a great atmosphere that I haven’t seen since games like silent Hill or evil within. It’s a wonderful creation inside and out that was made with love.
Scott followed up fnaf incredibly well with fnaf2, making the lore deep and the game play even more intense. It was a good sequel that he put his heart into.
Then the third game, using a mechanism we weren’t ready for at all, something totally different. And thus starts the “ dead horse” issue.
As with fnaf3, FNAF4 is already getting bullshit about how he’s beating a dead horse. He’s just doing it for mirrored results of his last game, or other ideas.
This is absolutely silly, why would you stop making what you love to make simply because people have had enough. Hell, look at zerahypt, made by SYRSA. (Dutvutan) they’ve been working on this world since they were a child, and they haven’t dropped this one subject. But they don’t get bad responses because they don’t charge you for their game, and it doesn’t have the annoying fan base that fnaf does.
Why would anyone in their right mind stop making something that they love AND at the same time get great reception as an item? no one does it. That’s why we have better phones or better anything. Why would you just give up.
Over all, if you’re one of these people being a dick and claiming the “easy money/ dead horse” thing even though every game has an entirely different mechanic and is exceptionally well made, you’re an ass, and I have no clue why you’d be doing it. It’s pointless.
Tldr. just shut up with the whole fnaf “money horse” shit. You’re more annoying than you claim the game is.
