Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 Trailer Analysis

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!

Five Nights at Freddy’s 2: The Horror Continues

Out with the old, in with the new!

So you probably have already heard that a new Five Nights at Freddy’s game was released last Tuesday. I’m sure the internet has gone insane for it over the week. As for me, I was so happy to hear that this game was getting a sequel, especially so soon after the original. To tell you the truth, I was really surprised that the full version came out just after the release of the demo.

I’ve also written about the first game. You can read that post here.

In this particular installment many things are changing for Freddy and friends. It’s a new and improved Freddy’s Fazbear’s Pizza! A bigger location, and brand new robots to entertain children and adults alike. The future seems bright for the pizzeria and all who attend there.

However, we all know there is more to this family restaurant than meets the eye. Again, you take the role of a new night guard at the location and must protect yourself from the murderous tendencies of familiar foes and their new cohorts. Some new additions include a murderous puppet at the prize corner and a balloon boy that gets in the way.

Those interested in FNAF lore will be pleased to hear that the game expands on the tale, though not in the way one would expect. I’m not going to spoil it here for the uninitiated, but I plan on discussing it more in a different post. I will say these developments are both intriguing and imaginative. I really have to hand it to the developer!

You may be wondering about my own experience playing the game. I wish I could share more about that but sadly I cannot yet. Don’t worry! I did get the first game a while ago. I’ve just been busy with my new job and haven’t had the chance to finish it, but I will! I definitely plan on getting the second one as well. Perhaps I’ll take my experiences from both games and write about them here.

Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 is available on Steam. I know I’m getting it, how about you?

Have a great week guys, and remember to stay scared!
