Hey guys, I wanted to let everyone know what I’ve decided. And just as a warning- a lot of you aren’t going to be happy about it, but please try to understand. Ever since I started making games I always wanted to be a world builder. I never wanted to make gimmicky games or things that didn’t mean something. I wanted to create experiences that would really have an impact on people. I feel like I got to do that with the first few games, but somehow I feel like I let myself get too dark with this one. Things went sideways, and I look at this game now and am unsure how it will affect people. At the same time though, people WANT a horror game, and I get that. I understand that. This is supposed to be horror, and not kid friendly. So then what am I supposed to do? Release something that offends me just to satisfy those who want to play it? Or take the time and effort to really craft something that everyone can enjoy? The answer is obvious to me. The problem is that the franchise has grown too much. There is too much of a spotlight on this for me to really do what I want to do. Even the news sites jumped all over this and mocked me for delaying the game. It just makes things difficult, because I don’t feel like I can really do the right thing anymore. But I think I have the solution. (this is the part most of you won’t like) I’m going to release the “mature” version of the game by itself, in sections, not as a part of the timeline, not as a part of the lore, and not as a part of the story, but just because I promised that I would. I promised a game, and don’t want to be one of those developers who endlessly delays their game’s release. However, I would recommend that real fans of the games, and real followers of the lore, wait a few months until I’m able to really make something that everyone can enjoy, and something that can still be scary! I’m going to release the game in chapters, however, not the whole game at once, since it puts strain on the servers over at GameJolt.
EDIT: (As most of you have figured out, the game's not delayed, see you Friday)
Oh, I want a diagram. I fucking love diagrams.
Scott made Five Nights at Freddy's 6 in secret and released it for free.It's dressed up as a Tycoon-style spinoff where you build and run your own Fazbear's Pizzeria franchise restaurant.

Pretty cool I'd saySpoiler, click to toggle visibiltyjust wish the animatronics you buy are the ones that went after you instead of the ones you salvage, or not salvage. I was lucky to not get attacked the first night and I salvaged Funtime Freddy, only to be gotten by Salvaged Freddy the very next night XD
What I've seen, only screenshots and title cards, is that this is the final game. Though, I'm not entirely sure. Gotta play it myself.
