There's been all kinds of rumors floating around about the official release date for Five Nights at Freddy's 4, but so far none of them have been true because the game shockingly popped up on Steam today. The game featured a note from its developer Scott Cawthon who wrote, "Ok, so as many of you already know, I'm bad with release dates. The game is finished. Enjoy!" Here's the trailer and official synopsis for the game:
If Pac-Man is the Madonna of 80s video games, then Q*bert is the Cyndi Lauper. The little orange guy was quirky, extremely popular and the star of one of the most merchandised arcade games of that era, but he’s never been able to achieve the same commercial success as some of his peers outside of his decade. Maybe it's because he only speaks Q-Bertese, or that he swears too much, but whatever the reason Q*bert deserves better. That's why it is nice to that him and his friends have made their way to the Apple App Store. Being part of the Apple ecosystem is so much nicer than the last time we saw Q*bert begging for Pac-Man cherries in Wreck-It Ralph.
