BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Maybe the most important aspect developers should keep in mind before releasing the games is to determine if the game is ready to hit the market or if it needs to be redesigned. Scott Cawthon pulls Freddy’s World from Steam due to poor user reviews.
Five Night’s at Freddy’s is considered by most indie game lovers the freakiest game ever released. It’s one thing to get a good fright from a good, but it’s another thing to go and lock yourself into the shower while screaming like a madman.
That’s what you get if you dare to enter the world of Five Nights at Freddy’s. Remember Dead Space and those accursed xenomorphs which popped out of nowhere? Wall panels, chairs, desks, it did not matter to them. They were everywhere and every time one of those creepy split-headed monsters came out of nowhere to bash your teeth in, you would’ve jumped 10 meters into the air.
Well, as frightening as Dead Space is and was, it has nothing of Five Nights at Freddy’s. It’s one thing to be chased down on poorly lit corridors by deformed mutants, and it’s something else entirely to flee from satanic plush toys.
Yes, you heard it right. Instead of running and hiding from hideously deformed spawns of Hell, you now have to escape from a house possessed by fluffy creatures. And every time one of those fluffy toys appeared on your screen, you would not only jump out of your chair, but you would also search for the light switch, and a crowbar, and probably some holy water and cross.
In terms of accomplishments, it would seem that Five Nights at Freddy’s has become the most popular indie first-person perspective horror game. And guess what? You can’t fight the creatures, you can’t shoot them and you’ll unable to anything in order to stop them. The only thing you can do is to run and hide.
The last installment of the game called Five Nights at Freddy’s World should have been Cawthon’s crowning achievement in the area of horror survival games. But it seems something went terribly wrong with the game.
According to Scott Cawthon, the developer of the game, he and his team have decided to pull the game off the market. This means that the game will no longer be available on Steam and that the users who went ahead to buy the game are entitled to a refund.
When asked about his decision, Cawthon argued that he thinks the game needs more adjustments before it can be properly launched on the market. Over the next few weeks, the senior game designer and its staff will redesign the game.
Also, the company announced that the refund time limit has been eliminated, meaning that it doesn’t matter when you bought the game, you’ll the money back anyway.
Cawthon pulls Freddy’s World from Steam in order to make some modifications. The senior game designer also added that once the game is finished, the gamers will be able to download Freddy’s World for free.
