The release of “Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Silver Eyes” novel last Thursday, Dec. 17, 2015, has drawn in a lot of criticisms. Scott Cawthorn, the creator has finally addressed the backlash the novel is receiving from his fans.
According to Design and Trend, it all started when a fan got the “Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Silver Eyes” novel with the hope that the novel will have the answers to the mysteries on the game franchise. However, he was then disappointed because as for him, the novel doesn’t have anything to do with the game at all.
Cawthorn addressed the matter and said, “The book is not intended to solve anything. The games and the books should be considered separate continuities, even if they do share many familiar elements. So yes, the book is canon, just as the games are. That doesn’t mean they are intended to fit together like two puzzle pieces.”
So basically, what Cawthorn “might” actually mean about “Five Nights at Freddy’s” and “Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Silver Eyes” is that both have the same idea but the novel followed its own and different timeline instead of following the game franchise’s timeline. Just in case more novels are to be released, it will follow the timeline of the novels and not the game franchise. To put this in a nutshell, they are two different stories.
Cawthorn also advised readers to read “Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Silver Eyes” for the sake of enjoying it. Readers shouldn’t try their hardest to solve anything because the book is to be enjoyed, not a mystery to be solved.
Meanwhile, the game timeline is finished.
