We take a look at the new book of short stories from the world of Freddys.
After years of pressure, Greg, Alec, and Oscar decide to take back control of their lives. Greg wants to put his questionable study to the test, Alec devises a bold plan to expose his beloved sister to the miserable brat that she really is, and Oscar, the model boy, takes something he desperately wants, even though he knows it’s a mistake. But the three quickly realized that control was an extremely fragile asset in the dark world of Five Nights at Freddy’s …
How do you exude a franchise when everything is listed and nothing is actually left? With short story volumes!
Well, it’s all a little unfair at this point, after all, the first volume of the “Five Nights” short story was actually pretty cool. Disney and the like also take a completely different approach. But it must be noted that the short stories would have succeeded without mentioning Freddy. With some of them, like the last story, you’ll notice it clearly. In the other two, Freddy has been fixed at least in an acceptable manner.
But let’s get to the heart of the story. As in the first part, three short stories with around 100 pages are featured here as well. And as in Volume 1, you have to say here: They have indeed succeeded. It starts with the characters (kids always, of course, but that’s what the game is all about) and extends to the mystery and horror factor. Because the old marionettes are the home of three different kids here again – with some lethal consequences again. Of course, we don’t want to spoil the end of the story at this point.
Overall, in all three stories, you’ll quickly feel the characters and moments of shock that the dolls caused the same success. The “old technology” of the dolls has been encapsulated once again in a new, more modern dress. Or in other words: this time you can call the 80’s without going back in time and using modern cell phones. The typical short stories end with an open end. The fact that you, as a reader, have to think for yourself about how to proceed helps in feeling awe at the tape.
Overall, you have three cute and entertaining stories that may also interest non-fans or model experts. So you don’t have to know anything about games to enjoy this book. And if you’ve tasted it, you can still get the first volume.
