Scott Cawthon releases Five Nights at Freddy’s: Ultimate Custom Night


Just when we thought it was safe to go back into our favorite pizza establishment, Scott Cawthon releases “Five Nights at Freddy’s Ultimate Custom Night.”

If any of you have a child under the age of 12, you most likely have heard of Five Nights at Freddy’s. If you live in my house, your floor is also scattered with the bodies of various animatronic plushies, like some sort of aging pizzeria toy graveyard. Five Nights at Freddy’s infiltrates my dreams at this point. And now there is a new game to put fuel on the FNAF fire that had started to die down (thanks Scott Cawthon). The game is Five Nights at Freddy’s Ultimate Custom Night.

Unlike the previous games, there’s no mythology to decipher, at least so far. This is effectively called 50/20. All 50 characters in the series and spin offs have come together in Smash Bros  crossover fashion to make your life miserable. You can add which characters you want and what level from 1-20 you want them to be. Each character has a special way to hide from them or to make them go away and if you get the nerve and skill to do 50/20, you have to memorize each and every one of them.

It honestly makes my head hurt just thinking about it and forget about the game play. I’ve been watching Markiplier, the self-proclaimed “King of FNAF” attempt this for days and he still struggles. Just trying to visually follow it is nearly impossible and he recently streamed a 5 and a half hour long video. And who says his job is easy?

I’ve always had trouble playing the FNAF games. Yes, I am an adult and I love horror and video games but these tap into something that just make me feel uncomfortable. The game play with Five Nights at Freddy’s Ultimate Custom Night isn’t nearly as uncomfortable as previous games since it seems so technical as opposed to scary but it’s just DIFFICULT. Granted, it’s only as difficult as you make it and you really only have to survive the one night, but the whole point is to make it ridiculously hard and make yourself angry, right?

You can watch gameplay all over YouTube but in terms of FNAF, I prefer Markiplier on this one. Love or hate his loud and exaggerated videos, you have to admit when it comes to FNAF games, he knows what he’s doing.
