Yesterday Scott Cawthon released his latest game which is titled Five Nights at Freddy’s: Pizzeria Simulator. Unlike the last several games I reviewed, I was able to play through this one in a timely manner.
This is largely because the game is available to play for free on Steam. I’ll just leave a link here for those of you who would like to experience it firsthand.
For those of you who would prefer my notes on the game however, I am proud to present to you the first iDotH review of a recent horror game.
Note: There are absolutely no story-related spoilers or specifics pertaining to the lore, but there will be a breakdown of the gameplay. Those of you who are familiar with Cawthon’s games know that sometimes the best thing to do is go in blind, so continue reading at your own risk.

I am back from hiatus. It was a very productive break during which I wrote over 100,000 words for NaNoWriMo. What better way to celebrate my return to horror blogging than with a timely review of a game that’s been out for five years?
I humbly present to you my thoughts on Mad Father.
This review is mostly spoiler-free. Although it will discuss overall themes and content of the game, it will not discuss any specific plot points, and I am therefore deeming it safe to read.
Jesus hot sauce Christmas cake, I loved this game – and not just for its wonderful expletives.
It took me an embarrassingly long time to get around to playing this. Back when the title was released in 2015, I was immediately taken with the concept, but I just didn’t have the required access to a PS4. I wasn’t sure that I’d ever get the chance to play this, and avoiding spoilers for over a year is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Let me tell you though, it was well worth the wait.
Spoiler Alert: This is an analytic review intended for audiences who have already completed Until Dawn. If you haven’t played/finished the game yet I would advise you to put off reading this as certain endings will be revealed.
