Five Nights At Freddy's World Pulled Off Steam, Will Return As Free-To-Play
Following some nasty criticism, horror-game-RPG-spinoff Five Nights At Freddy's World was yanked off Steam by its creator -- with refunds given to all buyers -- and when it returns, it won't cost anyone a dime.
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 launched FNaF World a month earlier than was expected, so it looks like it needed the extra time. Will you check it out when it comes back?
