A number of Scott's games are on mobile platforms, which can be found on the pages below:


  • When Chipper & Sons Lumber Co. came out, a lot of people complained that the animation and characters in it looked like "animatronic dolls." This sent Scott into a deep depression and almost committed suicide. However, before he was ready to quit the video game making business entirely, he realized he could take advantage of this and make it into a game, and thus Five Nights at Freddy's was born.
  • Scott's avatar comes from another game he made - There is no Pause Button!.
  • Scott is the father of four children and resides in Texas.
  • Scott has stated his favorite Bible verse is Psalm 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is a game he occasionally plays, as stated in one of his interviews.
  • He voices Phone Guy in both Five Nights at Freddy's, Five Nights at Freddy's 2, and Five Nights at Freddy's 3.
    • There is also a garbled version of the Night 1 call from FNaF 1 in FNaF 4 as ambiance.
  • The idea of being stuck in one spot and unable to move may have been taken from Sit 'N Survive, one of Scott's other games.
  • As of now, Scott's warning message on Scottgames is: My twitter is @real_scawthon, my Tumblr is, my Twitch is Animdude, my youtube is, and my reddit is animdude, and my GameJolt account is realscawthon. Only trust my website and my official Steam pages for FNaF news. Please be supportive of one another and of the community! Please do not call any phone numbers that you think are associated with the game! For Questions or Comments Please Write:

    • Sorry to ressurect this old thread, but it gave me a shock as well! Maybe Scott modeled Ennard after himself, to make Ennard more realistic.
