Creator Scott Cawthon has already released to the public his Five Nights at Freddy?s Novel which promises to tell fans ?The Untold Story? of several humans. Does Five Nights at Freddy?s: The Silver Eyes deliver on Cawthon?s promise?
Five Nights At Freddy?s Novel
The FNaF novel reportedly tells the story of generic human characters you would see in clich? horror films, Gamers Syndrome reported. The novel also spends its first 58 percent of its pages with the human characters talking about their personal experiences, the report said.
The remaining half pages of the FNaF novel abruptly rushes in tense scenes including ones with graphic killings done by the animatronics. Aside from introducing new characters in the FNaF lore, the novel does not reveal anything that fans know already about FNaF, Gamers Syndrome reported.
According to Design & Trend, creator Scott Cawthon said the FNaF novel was never intended to solve unanswered questions. ?Something that I should have explained very early on is that the book is NOT intended to solve anything,? Cawthon said on the Steam forums.
Cawthon said that the novel is canon to the plot of the FNaF games, however, it has its own timeline. ?Something that I said in one of the forum threads about this, is that sometimes the lore of something can become so crowded that you can?t tell an original story anymore. The games and the books should be considered to be separate continuities, even if they do share many familiar elements.?
?So yes, the book is canon, just as the games are. That doesn?t mean that they are intended to fit together like two puzzle pieces. I would actually ask anyone wanting to read the book, even if you are a devout fan of the games, to read the book for the sake of enjoying the book, and don?t try to ?solve? anything. The book is a re-imagining of the Five Nights at Freddy?s story, and if you go into it with that mindset, I think you will really enjoy it.?
Five Nights At Freddy?s Novel ?The Silver Eyes? is now available on Kindle for Android and iOS.
