'Five Nights At Freddy's' & 'Undertale' Controversial Crossover; LSFDevelopment Responds To YouTube Fiasco

By Alex Cruz

"Five Nights at Freddy's" and "Undertale" fans were reportedly outraged when the idea of these two games crossing over surfaced on YouTube, so LSFDevelopment took it on Reddit, and provided a response.

Originally, LSFDevelopment uploaded the "Five Nights at Freddy's" and "Undertale" trailer called "FNAFTALE" expecting to get feedbacks from fans on the things that can be improved. In other words, the uploader was expecting constructive criticisms.

Unfortunately, it did not happen. According to the Reddit post, the video garnered a lot of dislikes, unfriendly criticism and it even got to a point that there were suggestions of suicide and death threats.

"At first, I thought quite humorous about them, but they showed such determination to literally prevent it from happening," LSFDevelopment stated on the post.

It reportedly received a tremendous backlash from "Undertale" fanatics, so the game's crossover hopes with "Five Nights at Freddy's" was crushed. Despite the challenge, the developer is still determined to pursue the plan.

"I still might go through with this, even if it's undercover," according to the statement on the post.

The planned gameplay for the "FNAFTALE" was to blend the role playing game element of "Undertale" with the animatronics in "Five Nights at Freddy's" universe, which was shown in the trailer. However, the link of the clip has already been removed, as per the report of Design & Trend.

it's true that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. The fan-based community has already expressed opposition towards the concept, but there were some who thought the crossover idea of "Undertale" and "Five Nights at Freddy's" was brilliant.

Sweet Shark is one of those who welcomed the idea with arms wide open, Realty Today learned. In fact, the poster suggested some ideas for the gameplay and plot on The Escapist.

 "Undertale" is a role playing game, which was released on Sept. 15, 2015. This single-player video game was developed and published by tobyfox.

Meanwhile, the "Five Nights at Freddy's" series was developed and published by Scott Cawthon. The first installment of the game series was released on July 23, 2014.

Cawthon confirmed that there won't be a sequel following the release "Five Nights at Freddy's 4." However, he is now developing "FNAF World," and just like "Undertale," it is also an RPG.

As it turns out, Cawthon's upcoming game is different from its predecessors primarily because it's no longer a horror game. The animatronics will still be there — but in their cute forms.

Both the developers are mum amid the fiasco. "Five Nights at Freddy's" and "Undertale" are separately available on Steam.
