Although we just got Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 a short while ago, programmer Scott Cawthon has already been hard at work continuing his legacy.
Make no bones about it, this game is going to scare the hell out of people.
The cinematic graphics are fantastic and vibrant without the animatronics having to do much at all. We get the immediate sense of dread.The haunting music also does a good job of building the trailer. We get shots of the restaurant and the animatronics. Bonnie the Bunny’s eye slowly rolls towards the camera in chilling fashion.
The real head-scratchers here are in the text. “He will come back, he always does, we have a place for him” all appear in yellow before turning to red. Who are the possessed animatronics referring to? The killer of the five lost children the series story subtly revolves around? The phone guy from the previous games? Or is it you, the night guard?
We then get a shot of the creepiest thing these games have delivered us. The twitching golden animatronic (being called “Golden Bonnie” and “Salvage” by fans) who’s eyes looks more man than machine. And to make things worse we see what looks like gameplay footage of the creature skulking into the guard room, staring into the camera and emitting a shriek before the title screen appears.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Chuck E. Cheese…
