The Joy of Creation: Reborn is a popular and well-known Five Nights at Freddy’s fan game that has been in the works for a while now. While the free-roaming modes had been completely finished and released, the main Story Mode version had taken much longer to be completed. However, very recently, the full version of The Joy of Creation: Story Mode has finally been released in its entirety to the public.

A little over a week ago, a trailer was released showcasing everything that the full Story Mode had to offer. This trailer reveals to us spectacular graphics, impeccable voice acting, and an overall impressive storyline. The man talking in the trailer gives us a bit of an idea about his background and the plot that we will be taking on in the full game. The lore seems in-depth, it seems as though there will be a lot of story for the player to find within the game itself. It also reveals that the setting will be in a house, as we suspected.

After this, we get a sneak peek into seeing inside the house and the animatronic characters lurking there. We also can see through the man talking that the four main characters will be Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy, as they always have been. From the trailer, it seems that this game will also include some free-roaming, which is a big bonus, especially in terms of the Five Nights at Freddy’s series.

At the very end of the trailer, we get to see a jumpscare. It is very different from what the developer, Nikson, has done with his other Five Nights at Freddy’s fan-game jumpscares. The sounds and visual are switched from what we would typically see in a “Joy of Creation” game from him. Rather than an extremely intense, loud, and deep jumpscare that we would normally see, we get something a bit high-pitched and not as in-your-face as a typical Nikson jumpscare. Although the change may not seem to suit the game at the moment, perhaps it will all come to place today in its release.

This game seems to be a mix of his previously released Story Mode version and the free-roaming version of The Joy of Creation: Reborn. As a whole, I enjoyed the free-roam style of The Joy of Creation: Reborn more than the point-and-click traditional style in this particular game. In my opinion, the fear factor seemed to come into play more in the free-roam version. However, I do personally like this mix, and I am looking forward to seeing it for myself and witnessing how all of his hard work came together in the finished product.

This has been a long-awaited game, so its release is big news in the FNAF community. The developer has built up The Joy of Creation series to be something wonderful for a while now, so hopefully it can live up to the hype it has created. Nikson always knows how to put together a well-made game, so I have high hopes for when I get a chance to play it myself.
