His story as a video game developer
Scott Cawthon (before creating Five Nights at Freddy’s) had already created a variety of many other indie games, for which they did not receive a warm welcome.
On March 19, 2007, he uploaded to his official YouTube channel, the first part of a series of eight episodes of one of his first films, which was “The Pilgrim’s Progress”; an animated film that was a retelling of a novel of the same name, written by the English novelist, John Bunyan.
After releasing the “The Pilgrim’s Progress” video game, Scott Cawthon created several of his many other games; including “Sit ‘N’ Survive”, “There is NO Pause Botton”, “Chipper and Sons Lumber Co.” and “The Desolate Hope”. Some of them were submitted to the Steam Greenlight page.
While the “The Desolate Hope” video game was going through an acceptance process, some of its video games (most notably “Chipper and Sons Lumber Co.”) were heavily criticized by featured contributors for having characters that moved and they interacted with each other as if they were “animatronic machines.”
Cawthon had last chance
Discouraged at first, almost to the point of leaving game development altogether, Cawthon had only one last chance and was deciding one of his three options; including making a sequel to “The Desolate Hope”, making a reboot of “Legacy of Flan” or making a new game where the idea was about animatronics and security cameras.
Scott Cawthon finally decided to use the animatronic characters to his advantage; which thus provoked at the beginning, the development of “Five Nights at Freddy’s”.
On July 24, 2014, Scott presented Freddy’s video game to the IndieDB page, where it gained great popularity. He then presented it to Desura on August 13, 2014, but he presented it before on Steam Greenlight on June 13, where it was accepted, on August 18 of the same year.

By August 8, 2014, when the game was accepted, it was released for $ 4.99 on Steam. The game was well-received by critics and became the subject of a large popular segment of “Let’s Plays” on YouTube.
After that, Cawthon continued with Freddy’s career and went on to develop multiple installments of the franchise.
