After his game franchise exploded onto the gaming scene this past year, Five Nights at Freddy’s creator Scott Cawthon shot back a rebuttal towards some of his antagonists. The franchise, which is on it’s fourth game within the year and recently was signed to a movie deal with an Oscar-winning director. Cawthon first responded by thanking his supporters.

“It’s true that I’m stressed a little; but it’s OK because the result was good,” he said. “I’ve worked very hard this year, almost non-stop, to produce good games for this series. Even though there may be some debate as to how ‘good’ the games are, I did my best to provide some good scares and a good story. All I can do is judge from the Steam reviews that I’ve been mostly successful; so I’m very happy about that.”

Cawthon later went on to address some of his haters.

“I have a lot of flaws, and I’ve made a lot of mistakes,” he said. “My games aren’t perfect, and they never will be. But something more important that I want to convey to all of you, is that you should never listen to people who criticize success simply because it’s success. Being good at something is something to strive for, not something to demonize.”
