After releasing FNaF World a few weeks early to Steam, developer Scott Cawthon pulled the game due to negative reviews. In a note published on the Steam, Cawthon said he was "not satisfied with the reviews and ratings" the game was recieving even though it had a "Very Postive" overall response from players. Most of the negative reviews were directed towards the rushed and unfinished feeling of the game. Cawthon said he is currently polishing up FNaF World and creating a "fully 3D overworld" for a future release.
Anyone who downloaded FNaF on Steam can receive a full refund, and the game is now available for free on GameJolt for anyone to download. Cawthon did not announce if he plans to release the updated version to iOS, but he did say the game would always be available for free from this point forward.
FNaF World is an RPG that stars the cast from the original Five Night at Freddy's point-and-click titles. It is the fifth game in the Five Nights franchise and the first title to feature RPG elements. The franchise has been such a huge hit for Cawthon it has spawned a novel, toys and even an upcoming movie adaptation being produced by Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment.
The original point-and-click Five Nights at Freddy's games are available on the Apple App Store starting at $2.99.
