Reasons for a FNaF Chapter/Paragraph and more

Here we are, yet again with a FNaF thread, but please do actually read it and don't start off with comments like 'No FNaF' or 'FNaF is cringe', thank you.

I really don't know where to put it in since they get moved alot, so it would be nice if the mods could move this one if it belongs somewhere else. It's not a suggestion but also a discussion.

Nevertheless, here I go.

So, FNaF is a hot topic, some want it, some don't.

Some even compare it to the Clown costume, thinking the people that don't want FNaF still like the new Clown cosmetic, which is not the case, they still can dislike the Clown cosmetic even tho they hate/don't want FNaF.

I myself was against a FNaF chapter too, but I actually took some time to get into the idea and realized 'Hey, there's actually some potential!'. 

If people read/hear of FNaF they think of these animatronics:


But these aren't all the animatronics. We have a specific one lurking in the franchise.

Who is he? Would he fit?

He is Springtrap, his name after getting trapped in that suit. Before he was a man, a killer. He murdered children. Seems fine, right? Everything fits, he was, still is a killer and fits in with the atmosphere of the game, being dark, moldy and withered, unlike Freddy, Bonnie and Chica.

The problem is his design tho. He doesn't fit in with the style. Having him in Dead by Daylight wouldn't mean he has to have exactly the model as in the FNaF games. Springtrap comes from the third game, at the end of the game it is revealed that the horror attraction he is in, is set on fire. So you ask what it has to do with the design? Everything, in the fire he got withered down even more and etc. etc., could make him fit more into DbD style/design wise. 

But that would just be a paragraph at best. Having the horror attraction as a map would be weird and unfitting, even tho we have the Badham maps.

We could even be more creative about the design, survivor/s and a map if we take a look in the novel series. The novels arein a different universe, seperated from the game with some similarities animatronic-wise.

There is a Springtrap in the book, but from what we know, he can look totally different than the one from the games, giving the devs more to play with. As to lore, Springtrap there is also a human trapped/killed in the suit, the corpse is still in there and and he also killed children.

As for survivors, we have many potential survivors. Young adults which were friends of the main character, can't have the main character as a survivor due to lore reasons, shouldn't matter here tho.

To the map. The main character once lived in a house, which was left after her father died, they moved out. It eventually was left to rot and torn down.

The map could be the childhood home of the maincharacter and the area around it, similar to haddonfield, badham and thompson house. Here again is much room for creativity since it was described and never shown, unless you count the graphic novel version of the first book .

So, lore wise would it fit?

Yes, it would. Springtrap once was a killer as all the other killers in DbD were, with the exception of Plague and Spirit.

But you'd have to dig deep to find Springtrap in FNaF and it would take more than one minute to research.

Same applies to Tapp, Amanda and Quentin.

But, why?

The goal with licensed chapters is to bring new people to the game, and FNaF has people. Some consider them cringe or even toxic. Our community isn't different. And in all honesty, where would they spread their 'cringe', where would it affect you? Post game chat?

That was my last thread about FNaF, hopefully. 

And please don't come with 'No FNaF' without actual arguments, would appreciate it if you would actually bring some arguments and think about it.

Thanks for reading.

    It would be cool

    No FnAf. FnAf CrInGe lol

    It would be cool tbh. I feel like a lot of people think of FNaF as cringe just because of the community and not because the actual gameplay, and certainly not the lore. It's a bit like Fortnite in that regard imo

    As I've said before, I wouldn't mind a FNaF chapter. Hell, Springtrap would probably end up one of my mains, but I just don't think that FNaF is as popular as it was to warrant a chapter. If we got one back when FNaF was in it's heyday, it would make sense. It's like the Angry Birds movie, or the Slenderman movie. They came out so late, everyone had practically forgotten that they existed, and lo and behold, they bombed. Maybe when the next game comes out and the FNaF buzz is back, but right now, I don't see it happening.

    I really do think that i could work if it was springtrap as it’s a actual human inside so they wouldn’t walk around like a robot like Bonnie, Chicka would do I might be biased though because I really love FNAF and the story behind it.

    Original chapters are always way better because they have greater freedom to do whatever they want.

    I don't want any licence.
