The DHMIS crew trolled us pretty hard this time, eh?
I haven’t been following series news lately, so it’s appearance on YouTube was a complete surprise for me. Seems kike every time she sees one of these she asks, “What the hell was that?!” I imagine many of you are the same way, so let me give you my own interpretation of what is going on in this fourth installment.
I have to admit, I kinda hope the next strange object we formally meet is that globe. After being interrupted so rudely he needs a second chance. I think he’s got potential!
Have you ever wondered what humanity’s evolutionary future might look like? In Man After Man, author Dougal Dixion speculates on the possibilities. From what humans might create with genetic engineering, to our kind naturally changing or adapting with technology, to how climate change may shape our descendants.
The results may leave you feeling uncomfortable at the very least. Just about every human-derived creature in this book looks pretty damn freaky. Then there are the ethics of genetic manipulation and our growing dependance on technology that leaves you wondering how far would people really be willing to compromise in order to continue the human race.
So let’s have a brief look, shall we? Here’s the timeline of Dixion’s vision of the future!
200 years: The Earth has been ravaged by overpopulation and pollution. Scientists have genetically altered humans in a variety of ways to live and work in harsh environments. Examples include the Aquamorph and Vacuumorph. Many unaltered homo sapiens are leaving the planet to find a future in space, yet there are still those that are left behind to fight for the meager resources on earth.
The humans that have remained on earth have split into two major factions: those that highly depend on machines to maintain bodily functions and complete tasks, and handlers that work to repair this technology and serve the technology-assisted upper class. These handlers remain unaltered to retain versatility while working with machines. The machine dependent humans grow weaker and weaker over time, and the process of mating has become quite risky. The Aquamorphs have grown more independent, and no longer assist land-dwelling humans.

Unfortunately, the book is out of print right now so finding a copy may be a bit out of one’s price range but well worth the read!
I’m really starting to wonder if Scott Cawthon ever sleeps. I just talked about this game last week and here we are at it again. The original game was released in July, the second came in November, and now we have a trailer for the third! Seriously, this guy must program like a machine.
Thankfully, this new trailer does have some intriguing hints at what is to come. I especially find the text the most pertinent part.
He will come back
He always does
We have a place for him
I believe that these are the words of the animations themselves as an image of Bonnie, Freddy, and Chica are followed by the final line; not to mention that ‘we’ likely refers to the trio. They expect the child murder mentioned in the previous games to return to them, possibly to commit similar crimes. However, they are now prepared to take their revenge when he comes. Just what that would be or how that would apply to the new game protagonist still remains unclear. The next protagonist could be the murderer himself, but it’s also just as possible a new character could be introduced.
There are also several visual details to take note. This time the condition of the diner is decrepit, with peeling paint and what looks to be old wires hanging from the ceiling. It’s for this reason that I think the next game will be set much later than the previous games. The location looks a lot like the one from FNAF 1, but it could also take place in the original Fazbear Diner.
For this reason I wonder about the next game’s protagonist. Perhaps they will be a security guard of a different sort. Instead of the nighttime security of a seemingly friendly family restaurant, he or she will be looking after what’s essentially an abandoned building. Perhaps to protect it from squatters or find out what could be behind any possible disturbances.
Alongside the classic animatronics is a whole new beast that gives an updated meaning to the term nightmare fuel. This animatronic rabbit is in some ways similar to Bonnie, but has a sickly yellow color and is horribly beat up and scarred. I could be wrong, this could be an aged version of a Golden Bonnie, but my instincts tell me otherwise.
I’ve also heard of speculation that the place is now a horror attraction inspired by the restaurant’s history. I’m not sure if there’s any concrete evidence behind that theory though.
Only time will tell for sure. Considering Cawthon it won’t take too long!
This week’s video is a mysterious tale of puzzles, treasure, and an unsolved murder created and told through the internet. Enjoy!
Wow, this Scott Cawthon guy is really churning these games out isn’t he? I have to admit I’m quite impressed! I hope he isn’t working himself to death…
So I’m sure the entire internet is wracking its brain trying to figure out what FNAF 3 will have in store. Will it be another prequel like FNAF 2 was? And yes, there are quite a few people out there who believe FNAF 2 is in fact a prequel. Frankly I have to agree with them.
Scott’s image suggests that this new game may take place sometime after FNAF 2, as parts from the ‘toy’ characters and balloon boy are shown. However, the games have only hinted at three different locations, which would suggest that part 3’s location is going to the first Fazbear restaurant, as the other two have already been featured.
While the first FNAF was a great way to establish the initial tale, the second game takes the mystery much further by going back to the murders of the five children and the Bite of ’87. There is also the inclusion of the death mini-games, which tell the story in the perspective of the animatronics. Going further back to the first restaurant would be a natural progression of the story. It definitely would be an unique way to tell it if Scott chooses to continue this way; slowly going further and further back until the true origins of the horrifying anamatronics are revealed to us, probably learning tons of little secrets along the way.
So far things are definitely up in the air for what we can expect from FNAF 3, but judging from the last two I think we can all be assured that the experience will be quite enjoyable. One thing is certain though: we’re all going to be fucking terrified!
I would also like to note that I only have the first FNAF as of this post. I’m terrible at it, so I haven’t finished playing yet. I may post about my play-through or I may not, I’m not sure. If you do want me to write about it all you need to do is ask.
