Five Nights Away from Freddy’s - 8 Games by Scott Cawthon that Don’t Involve Fazbear’s Pizza
The Five Nights at Freddy’s series is inarguably popular at this point. Regardless of whether or not you love the atmosphere or think the games are dull, the creepy-looking bear and his - I guess we can call them friends? - are a YouTube phenomenon and have spread like wildfire across the internet ever since players were first introduced to Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. But did you know that the developer, Scott Cawthon, has released several games long before the iconic animatronics graced our screens?
Well he did. More than 30 of them are available on the App Store right now, in fact - and I’ve gone and played 29 of them. Most were either slot machines or the same gem-breaking puzzle game over and over, but several of them are actually pretty decent. I can’t say for sure if you’ll enjoy them more than Five Nights at Freddy’s but he’s made at least eight games you might not have heard of that are worth playing (although many of them haven’t been updated in a year, most likely because of Freddy’s popularity). So why not give them a try?
