Freddy retires five nights in the backlash of political contributions


Scott Cawthon, creator of Five Nights in Freddy’s series, says he will retire from developing public games. Cawthon said in a statement that he would continue to make games as a hobby and for children, handing over the property of Five Nights at Freddy to another developer.

“I have a blessed, fulfilling and prosperous career.” Cawthon said on his website.. “I was shown great kindness, and I tried to show great kindness in return. I tried to make some good games (let me continue the discussion), and I’m probably Earth Witnessed the creation of the most creative and talented fan base above.

“But here’s the 7th anniversary of the trailer for the first game, when I created the series, I was in my mid-30s, but now I’m approaching my mid-40s, and I’ve missed a lot. I noticed. Before FNAF had such success, I started to focus. I miss making games for kids, I just miss doing it for fun, And I miss making it rpgs even if it stinks. This all means I’m retired. I’ve shown a lot of love and support last week. Much from the LGBTQ community. The kindness shown to me was surreal. “

Cawthon’s inclusion of the LGBTQ community in his statement is a reference to recent controversies. Gamemaker Political Contributions to Republican PoliticiansIncludes Senator Mitch McConnell, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, and former President Donald Trump. These donations, totaling over $ 42,000 and made almost exclusively to Republican lawmakers and politicians, Reddit Last week’s Twitter, Criticism of Corson’s politics And how his donation directly affected his own player base.

Saturday, Cawthon Support blowback for donations on Reddit threads, Say, partly:

We’ve had a lot of discussion about the best way to deal with this, including not dealing with it at all, but with so many people from the fan-based LGBT community, it’s not an option. I think the last seven years have given me the benefit of doubts about how I treat people, but I tend to be homophobic on Twitter, throbbing and threatening people. Come to my house. My wife was 6 weeks pregnant and spent last night afraid of what was being said online. She’s already suffering from pregnancy, so I was really scared to see her so afraid. This is all because, as an American citizen, I have exercised my rights and obligations to vote and support candidates who I find best suited to run the country for everyone.

Over time, I found that the candidates I supported included men, women, whites, blacks, Republicans, and Democrats. I helped Kimberly Clasique in Baltimore. She really cared for the African-American community and wanted to get out of poverty. I believed she could really make a difference in a time when so many black communities were struggling. Unfortunately she lost. I supported Democrat Tulsi Gabbard, but I didn’t agree with her on some issues because she felt she was a good and fair president. And yes, I supported President Trump. Because he felt he was the perfect person to support a strong economy and confront many foreign American enemies. I have something to say directly to the LGBT community, and even if there are candidates who make bigger promises, their stance on other issues has done far more harm to those communities than good. I believed. I’m afraid that all this explanation is in vain because people don’t want to talk to each other anymore. They want endless apologies and obedience. Neither can I get those who expect them from me.

In the same statement, Corson hinted at plans to retire in the spotlight and controversy.

“I don’t do this anymore for money. I do it because I enjoy it,” he wrote. “If people think I’m doing more harm than I am now, I might want to cancel and retire. I accept it. I have a fulfilling career. Above, most of what people can get from you wasn’t very valuable in the first place.

“I’ve always loved this community and this fan base, and I’ll continue to love it, even if I’m no longer included.”

The future of Five Nights at Freddie’s includes an adaptation of the movie under development and another sequel, 5 nights at Freddie: Security breach — Cawthon said Thursday that he would give the reins to someone else.

“Is this the end of FNAF? Number.” He said. “This means someone else will eventually run the show. Someone I chose, and someone I trust. You have to wait for everything to be done. But someday an announcement will be made. “
