Scott Cawthon Bio
(Game Designer, Animator)
Birthday: July 26, 1971 (Leo)
Born In: U.S.
Scott Cawthon is an American video game designer, developer and animator best known for the 'Five Nights at Freddy's franchise'. If you are a video games enthusiast then you would have probably landed upon playing one of the games of the ‘Five Nights at Freddy's’ indie video game series. The series and eventually the media franchise often abbreviated as ‘FNaF’ was created, developed, designed and published by Scott Cawthon.
The game designer and animator, however, met with little success initially. He was even criticized by notable reviewers for incorporating animatronic machine like characters in his games like ‘Chipper and Sons Lumber Co.’ Although such criticisms marred his spirits initially, Cawthon later resolved to use such characters in his future gaming endeavours. This saw the evolvement of ‘Five Nights at Freddy's’, the first game of the successful franchise marking his big break into the world of gaming. Its success and popularity not only saw development of five more games in the series but also the novel ‘Five Nights at Freddy's: The Silver Eyes’.
Upcoming books associated with the franchise includes another novel ‘Five Nights at Freddy's: The Twisted Ones’ and an official guidebook to the series titled ‘The Freddy Files’. The series is also planned for a film adaptation. Other notable games and animations of Cawthon, who also remained associated with ‘Hope Animation’ that delves in developing animated films aimed at disseminating the teachings of Lord Jesus, are ‘There Is No Pause Button!’, The Desolate Hope and ‘The Pilgrim's Progress’ to mention a few.
