Five Nights at Freddy’s World looks… strange

So horrifically cute

Creator Scott Cawthon has revealed his plans for the Five Nights at Freddy’s series and it seems he’s taking things in a different direction. Ditching the horror, jump scare craziness that has defined the Freddy’s experience, the next game in the series, Five Nights at Freddy’s World, will be a cutesy JRPG. Players will take a party of their favorite Freddy’s cast members on a pizza throwing, cupcake bombing, teeth-achingly saccharine adventure.

Sure, why not?

Some dark part of me can’t help but wonder if Scott was inspired by Five Nights at Fuckboy’s, a fan-made, profane RPG re-imagining of FNAF that marries the recognizable cast to RPG mechanics and lowbrow jokes. Is this a creator making a fan-work of a fan-work of his original work? The snake is eating its tail, the cycle is complete.
