    That is crazy. The original was created in 2014 and literally 9 years later, they now have a movie. How nice😊
  • @PCGamestream9613
    Despite being almost a decade, FNAF still is the biggest and most (culturally) popular game in the world among fans and indie gamers. And with the movie coming out soon I'm glad to say that the franchise will still be strong. Oh, how time flies?
  • @Michael_Afton40
    You guys remember when we struggled to figure out the lore? Good times🙂
  • @dorian5004
    I was waiting a long time for you to make this video for so long. I appreciate it.
  • @superheroes2.0yt
    Awsome video man, thanks for making an evolution of my childhood!!
  • @thaddayyus
    so much work is put into these videos. thank you for doing these flatlife!
  • @iluvtacos38
    I’ve been waiting for this to come out!! Great job Flatlife!
  • @derektrotman5311
    You know I was so afraid of this franchise when I was younger it just horrified me to see this but over time I grew to love it and it's just kinda jarring to see how far it has come, thank you flatlife for this amazing video and I can't wait for the next one 😁
  • Thanks for bringing back your old intro, I generally just like it more🙂
  • @JayHeartwing
    Having a not well-known name on the internet (SammfeatBlueheart), I became a fan back in 2014, drew lots of arts around 2015-16, and finally left the fandom in 2017 due to my adulting struggles and dealing with other fans with art requests and drama.

    But it's really nice to see the franchise evolved in a great way and now that we have a movie that is rumored since 2015. I might come back drawing art about it? IDK. But for now, I don't think so due to adulting life is so hard and dealing with a lot of responsibilities makes it way harder. It feels like I'm not working for myself at all.

    As always, Flatlife vids amaze me. They help me know a lot of things since I'm always interested about evolutions of things.
  • @davidaviles1754
    After for so long for the games of merchandise and books and a first ever movie, FNAF is almost a 10 year decade, I was 11 seeing this franchise, and some music videos

    As a little fan of FNAF, I can't wait to see FNAF in the big screen as my first horror movie ever
  • @nswtrains3153
    The whole series is awesome it’s nice to see how far Scott has came!
  • @BewilderedPants
    When I played it for the first time I was wishing for 6am to hit...I wanted to click exit so bad at that time💀
  • @johnmanreza4320
    Fnaf has been part of my life since around 2016-2018 and im still a fan
  • @user-kl5gx5bs9h

  • @ansh3865
