The Joy of Creation: Reborn is a fan-made horror game inspired by the Five Nights at Freddys franchise. Its first version was published on Gamejolt April 6th, 2016.
Created by famed animator Nikson with the Unreal Engine, Reborn just might be the most terrifying fan-made interpretation of the FNaF series to date. Still in its alpha stages, the project began with “Endless Mode” that follows a Featureless Protagonist navigating his way through his house on a dark rainy night. The first level is the houses First Floor, haunted by the “Ignited Freddy” animatronic, the second level is the Basement, haunted by “Ignited Bonnie”, the third level is the Attic, haunted by “Ignited Foxy”, and the fourth level is the Forest, haunted by “Ignited Chica”. A Halloween update has also been released, in which the player is pursued through Fazbears Fright by “Ignited Springtrap”.
After Endless Modes development was complete and released, Nikson began working on “Story Mode”, starting with the “Living Room”, where all animatronics have the player trapped in their living room.
The story mode was completed on July 17th, 2017, and goes a little something like this: indie developer Scott Cawthons family finds that a man named Michael had arrived in their house in the middle of the night, and he can barely remember how he got there. Worried, the family allows him to rest at their home, but they quickly find that Michael wasnt alone…
In August 2020, it was confirmed that all 3 games (the original, Reborn, and Story Mode) are being bundled up into one game: The Joy of Creation: Ignited Collection, as part of Scott Cawthons Fazbear Fanverse Initiative. The original and Reborn are being reworked entirely, while still keeping the arcade highscore-based gameplay, while the story mode is planned to have more minor changes in terms of gameplay, but there are expected to be changes to the story itself.
|“||This is a FNaF Fan Game, inspired by the fourth installment and by “The Boogeyman” video game. Can you hear them calling out your name in the darkness?
Their own screams once gave you pleasure, but now theyre gonna tear you apart- inch by inch.
You must use your sharp senses and abilities to defend yourself against your own creations lurking in your very own house.
But be careful, theyre not as friendly as they are in the daytime; especially to you.
|— Summary of the game.|
Nikson first started development on The Joy of Creation on November, 2015 after Those Nights at Fredbears and Unreal Shift at Freddys got cancelled. He announced that the The Joy of Creation will not have free-roam and will have custom-animatronics.
The games demo was released 3 days after the gamejolt page was created. Nikson stood silent for ten days until he announced the game will have a complete change over with style and mechanics. Seven weeks later Nikson announced that the game will be cancelled and would not be continued.
Nikson once again annouced a few months later, that he will be holding a vote for people to tell him if he should not or revive the game. 500+ people voted on reviving the game. Nikson then started to develop the new game and rename the title title The Joy of Creation: Reborn.
