FNAF World Latest News, Review and Updates: Five Nights at Freddy’s World Now Available for FREE, Check Out Initial Review
By Jeff Villanueva
As promised by game developer Scott Cawthon, Five Nights at Freddy's World is now available for FREE download on GameJolt.com.
"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 on GameJolt AND Steam," Cawthon promised during the time he pulled out the game on Steam as posted on Steam Community.
And his promise was never broken.
Last February 9, the latest and updated version of FNaF World was uploaded on GameJolt.com.
This is the first updated version FNaF World, featuring a remodeled overworld and many other new features. More updates to come!
Featuring the entire cast from the Five Nights at Freddy's series, this fantasy RPG will let players control their favorite animatronics in a an epic animated adventure!
With 40 playable characters, multiple endings, multiple difficulties, and a great soundtrack from artist Leon Riskin, FNaF World hits the ground running and doesn't stop. Take control of Freddy and the gang as they set out on a quest in the world beneath worlds, a world that reflects the actions and deeds of the "flipside", where things have started becoming distorted and broken. Lead your team deeper into this digital world to find the source of these glitches and monsters, and restore it to what it was designed to be- a safe haven.
But be careful, behind the curtain there may be something even more sinister pulling the strings...
FNaF World Initial Review
Patricia Hernandez of Kotaku.com was one of the first people to place a remark on the updated version of FNaF World, and it looks like she's still not happy even after the was made FREE.
Here is Hernandez' entire 'review' of the updated Five Nights at Freddy's World:
This version of FNAF World does have improvements. Hovering over an attack actually tells you what that attack does NOW, for example. But tweaks like that really can't save a game that, on a fundamental level, just isn't designed well. I spent some time with FNAF World this morning, and, well. There's nothing particularly interesting about its random encounter > turn based battle set-up. That's about as generic as RPGs get. The music is still way too grating. Visually, the game looks terrible-and yet, the game still doesn't run smoothly! Don't even get me started on the loading times to go into MENUS. It's absurd.
It's entirely possible that FNAF developer Scott Cawthon may fix some of these technical issues, too. I'm not really sure that will be enough. Then again, this game is clearly made for the more hardcore FNAF fan, and judging from the comments on Game Jolt, they seem pretty happy with it despite everything I just mentioned. Your mileage may vary.
Do other players feel the same? We'll find out more.
