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.
