Five Nights at Freddy's developer, Scott Cawthon (Scott Games), has just announced that the highly anticipated FNaF World will be released February 19th on Steam for PC, Android, and iOS. Scott recently posted the news on the Steam community board,
FNaF World is coming along very well, despite these delays, and I plan on releasing it February 19th on Steam, and then for Android and iPhone in the following weeks! I will also release a demo on GameJolt!
However Scott admitted that he had some significant delays in production. World is "coming along well," he said, despite the fact that the computer he used to make the original FNaF games, and some of FNaF World, "bit the dust," as he put it.
"It's still quite a delay to get a new machine and reconfigure software," he added.
So far, FNaF is unlike every other horror game, or even movie, for that matter. There's no telling when you'll jump out of your seat. This is what makes the jump-scare element in FNaF so brilliant because in other forms of horror media, you'll know what's coming and when after the first time.
FNaF manages to do this with animatronic characters which were supposed to be made for children in FNaF--not intended to be scary intially. The Inquisitr reports that FNaF and friends are basically Chuck E. Cheese and the gang from hell.
If you've ever pulled apart the curtains at Chuck E. Cheese between "performances" as a child, then you'll understand the erie and sinister inspiration of the FNaF games. Now imagine being trapped in the facility with them all night-- an utter nightmare.
