Mobile App Stores

A number of Scott's games are on mobile platforms, which can be found on the pages below:


  • When Chipper & Sons Lumber Co. came out, a lot of people complained that the animation and characters in it looked like "animatronic dolls." This sent Scott into a deep depression. However, before he was ready to quit the video game making business entirely, he realized he could take advantage of this and make it into a game, and thus Five Nights at Freddy's was born.
  • Scott's avatar comes from another game he made - There is no Pause Button!
  • Scott is the father of three children and resides in Texas.
  • Scott has stated his favorite Bible verse is Psalm 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is a game he occasionally plays, as stated in one of his interviews.
  • He voices Phone Guy in the Five Nights at Freddy's series.
  • He also voices Phone Dude, who is shown during the early parts of Five Nights at Freddy's 3.
  • The idea of being stuck in one spot and unable to move may have been taken from Sit 'N Survive, one of Scott's other games.
  • On January 8th, Scott's warning is modified differently as: "This is a reminder to not believe everything you hear; I do NOT have a Twitch or Twitter account. Only believe information from! Also, please do not call any phone numbers that you believe may be associated with the game. There are NO real phone numbers associated with the game. Please be supportive of others in the community and those making fan-games; it only takes a few kind words to build someone up!"
  • Most of Scott's games rely on a broken robot, with Foxy and Mangle from the Five Nights at Freddy's series and Amos from The Desolate Hope being examples.
  • While Scott says that he only works on himself, his two sons and a few friends beta-test most of his games, all in which their names were revealed in the credits from The Desolate Hope.
