I liked Fab Freddy's better when it was called Double Switch. No, wait, it was shit even then.

PoETV is Too Good For Everything, Part Infinity.

Sanest Man Alive - 2014-11-06

At long last, I'm the Official Voice of PoETV! Suck it, Caminante!

Also I'm glad you got such enjoyment out of a game I'll never feel any desire to play, officer.

Needs more Dana Plato.

this guy needs to not record himself

I'm actually thinking about downloading it for my phone, as 3 bucks is a pretty good deal for what looks like a well-made spooky game (and the kind of game I'd like to sit and play on the bus or the toilet or something) so the complaints about additional content that costs money mean nothing to me: I mean, Tapped Out was free but I definitely gave EA at least 3 of my head-earned dollars for donuts, and I'd rather give it to an indie developer with a cool idea.

infinite zest - 2014-11-05

It's really fun. And yes I said "head-earned." I miss games like these. Also the premise reminds me of this place I used to work at, at the end of the night I had to turn off all the lights in this old movie theatre and the last thing I had to turn off were these gigantic Buddhas' red eyes and I had to wait until they went completely black so I'd just stand there and watch them. I loved the job but so many fucked up dreams.

zest, was that the oriental theater?

Sexy Duck Cop - 2014-11-06

Zestaroo, have you seen the trailer for the sequel?

infinite zest - 2014-11-06

Scrimm yeah I was at the Oriental and the Downer for about 5 years.

infinite zest - 2014-11-06

and Sexy Duck I just watched it. Looks fantastic. Besides the Buddhas I also had to check the Rocky Room (Rocky Horror Picture Show) in case people were sleeping down there and such, and all I had was a flash light and the Tim Curry mannequin would freak the fuck out of me every time.

My daughter has been playing this game on her phone non-stop but every time I ask how it's played I get a description that makes me wonder where the fun in the game is.

Sexy Duck Cop - 2014-11-06

The fun is in the tension. You're waiting for 6 AM to roll around, so you're constantly staring at the clock and listening to the fan. You know your battery's slowly draining, and that doing anything--turning on lights, closing doors, checking cameras--will drain it. But if you don't do those things the monsters will get you, so you check the cameras, and okay there's the faint outline of something in that hallway, but we're good, except now you're at 45% juice and only halfway through, but let's check the lights and ohhhhh wow there's an 8-foot bear outside my door, etc

This game was not meant to be played on a phone.

I'm so glad Five Nights At Freddy's is finally a linked tag. It's the Platonic ideal of what video game horror should be. Yes, the jump scares are way too Youtube-friendly, but so what? The game itself is almost perfectly designed and avoids virtually all of the tropes video game horror usually succumbs to.

You're not a space marine or haunted novelist, you're a sub-minimum wage security guard at a shitty Chuck-E-Cheese knockoff. You have no weapons, Quick Time Events, or sassy female sidekicks. There's no cutscenes because none are necessary; the spooky story is told entirely through the characters' actions (Foxy is, hands down, the creepiest; he or she hides from the cameras, sprints down the hallway when you're not looking, and pounds on the door. Like, say, a crying child trying to escape a murderer.)

It's just pure gameplay. Over long, uncomfortable periods of silence, you manage a single resource--energy--various ways, and as hard as you try to be a neutral, objective scientician about it, sooner or later anxiety takes over and you start checking the camera just to see you're safe and then SHRIEKING HAUNTED ROBOT HIPPO RABBIT UP IN VARIOUS GRILLS

Yes, Youtube megastars love to overact and self-consciously scream JESUS FUCK for 18 minutes even though they've played this level 85 times. Don't let them dissuade you from playing this game. It's so much fun, especially with friends.

From the Wikipedia article the gameplay sounds like a reverse Hunt the Wumpus.

FABIO - 2014-11-06

This game is good for 5 minutes of cheap scares and that's it. There are non intuitive gameplay rules you'll never guess, and the only way to win is to never bother with the cameras and just keep spamming the lights and doors in a set pattern. It is literally impossible to beat the last levels any other way

Sexy Duck Cop - 2014-11-06

You have to look at the cameras or Foxy will get you.

Caminante Nocturno - 2014-11-06

Not if you're REALLY quick.

I think.

I've never played this game.
