Game Theory: Did Reddit Just SOLVE FNAF?

Get Yourself Some BRAND NEW Theory Wear! ►
You may be thinking, "Hey MatPat, don't we already know everything about Crying Child?" No, Theorists, we do NOT and you proved it! "Crying Child" is what we've referred to the victim of the Bite of '83 as since the beginning but that child has a name! A name I have figured out! This is one of the oldest mysteries of the franchise and I am sure that we've cracked it wide open! Theorists, no FNAF mystery will go unsolved as long as I am on the case.

  • I connected the dots with "The Real Jake" on my own. I feel like it adds to it and we're on to something. But the fact that MatPat said there wasn't a "tally up your score" page after the surveys confuses me. i see that page a lot, am I hallucinating it?

    • So your saying that we play as Michael in the fnaf 4 nights?

      Knut EngwallKnut EngwallVor Stunde
    • @Knut Engwall the gameplay of FNAF 4 almost perfectly mirrors FNAF 1, and you can faintly hear Phone Guy during thr fnaf 4 nights. Michael is also basically confirmed to be FNAF 1's protagonist. So its not outright confirmed, but it is heavily implied that FNAF 4 is Michael's dream.

    • Where did you get that from?

      Knut EngwallKnut EngwallVor Stunde
    • Michael is likely the one who dreams of the FNAF 4 gameplay. But the minigames are from Crying Child's perspective.

  • What if what happened to Michael and Charlie also happened to Evan when he died, and is an "adult version" of what could've been the crying child?

    Someone on the internetSomeone on the internetVor 19 Stunden
  • but if crying child (evan) died, then how is he also the father to jake? Wouldn't the foxy coding spelling EVAN just be pointing to jake's dad as an important figure and that being how the book is connected to FNAF?

  • I find it funny that at no point did you actually say "Evan Afton" aloud, which would surely tip everyone off. EVER AFTER His Dad always comes back and his friends are immortal.

  • OK so I have an idea so you know how name Evan and Michael are grownups so what if the Evan in the book was actually the crying child when he is a grown-up and Michael is his brother like infinite stories and the crying child Sunday is the kid who has the brain tumor and who is in the bed and the reason why he uses a stuffed animal to communicate with his son is because that’s what Afton did when Evan was a kid
