Many people recognize Scott Cawthon as the creator behind the popular Five Nights at Freddy’s games. The three games have each been very successful for Cawthon, and some people may be wondering what he has planned to do with the money he’s made from them.

Last Saturday, a live stream focusing on
Five Nights at Freddy’s was held by Twitch streamer Dawko to raise money through St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s partnership with Twitch. Cawthon visited the stream and donated a total of $249,999 towards the cause. This pushed the total money raised to $256,499. The original objective for the stream was to reach $15,000, which means the event reached 1,710% of the planned goal.

It’s always heartwarming to see successful independent developers donate their game profits to great causes like this one. Regardless of your opinions on
Five Nights at Freddy’s, this man has shown a great deal of passion for helping others.

Our Verdict

Adam Sherrill
Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
