    As always, thank you. 🙂

    “Five Nights at Freddy’s 4”

    Cody, that’s not by the official developer (Scott Cawthon). Please don’t fall for this scam, especially since it costs $9.99! The real Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 won’t be out until October this year.

    • Melvco

      Wow, thank you for bringing this to my attention. I’m usually pretty good at spotting fakes/clones, but this was extremely detailed: 4 stars on 70+ reviews, several hi-res screenshots, quotes from video game publications, etc.


  • Noohar
