Five Nights At Freddy’s World Drawn Off Steam, Will Return As Free-To-Play
Following some nasty critique, horror-game-RPG-spinoff Five Nights At Freddy’s World was yanked off Steam by its creator – with refunds provided to all purchasers – so when it returns, it will not cost anybody a cent.
The decision to pull the game was solely that of creator Scott Cawthorn, and not a mandate from Valve. In an apologetic statement posted on the FNaF 4 Steam discussion forum, Cawthorn states:
Even though the game had a “Very Positive” rating with 87%, I was not satisfied with the reviews and ratings it was getting… I’m still going to work on FNaF World and polish it up. I’m busy creating a fully 3D overworld for the game. When I’m ready to update the game, I will replace the demo currently on GameJolt with the full game. From this point forward, the game will always be free.
Cawthorn released FNaF World per month sooner than was expected, so it appears as though it needed the additional time. Are you going to take a look as it pertains back?
