About Scott Cawthon

Scott Cawthon is an American animator, video game developer, philanthropist, and writer. He gained popularity in the early 2010s with the creation of his video game series and media franchise – “Five Nights at Freddy’s”. As of 2020, there have been seven video games released, with a new one named, “Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach” set for premiere in mid-December. For the past few years, all video games have sold millions around the world and, they set a record that appeared at the Guinness Book of Records.

The video game developer became famous after he released many video games. He was born on July 26, 1971, in Houston, Texas. The very first game that he made was “Doofus”, which was created when he was a child. In his twenties, he attended the Art Institute of Houston and by that time became interested in following a career that focuses on game development. His career officially started in the 1990s, when he began practicing animation and game design.

American video game developer, animator, writer, and philanthropist Scott Cawthon has an estimated net worth of $60 million dollars, as of 2022. Cawthon is best known as the creator of the Five Nights at Freddy’s game franchise.

Towards the mid-1990s, Cawthon’s first game, Doofus, was used as a troll game and demo of the “Ultimate Custom Night”. Towards the new decade, in the year 2000, he began creating multiple games at the same time. One of the most popular titles that he made was “RPG Max”, which was released in 2002. Shortly after, he joined the company “Hope Animation” for whom he created multiple Christian-based animations for children.

What made Scott Cawthon so rich was the creation of “Five Nights at Freddy’s”. In March 2007, he joined YouTube and uploaded the first of his eight-part series “The Pilgrim’s Process”. Throughout the rest of the decade, he dropped several games – “The Desolate Hope”, “Sit and Survive”, and “Chipper and Sons Lumber Company”, thanks to which, he earned an estimated net worth of about $10 million.

In the early 2010s, Cawthon began developing games that include animatronic-like characters, something that he was criticized for in the past. He spent several years working on “Five Nights at Freddy’s”, which he submitted to Steam’s system “Greenlight” in June 2014. One month later, he submitted the game to Indie DB and it gained massive popularity. In mid-August, after the game was submitted for a third time with the developer Desura, it was accepted at Greenlight and was released for $4.99. By the end of the year, the game developer had reached a net worth of perhaps as high as $15 million.

Ever since the mid-2010s, Scott Cawthon’s career has skyrocketed as he has continued to work on the creation of sequences of “Five Nights at Freddy’s”. By 2017, Cawthon released not only six more video games but also three different novels – “Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Silver Eyes” and “The Twisted Ones”. He spent the rest of the decade releasing both games and novels, both of which became best-sellers.

The philanthropist is successful mainly because of his many talents and professions.

Apart from creating books and video games, since 1995, Scott Cawthon has filmed a number of films. His first film was “College Demo Reel”, which was later followed by a collection of four Birdvillage movies – “Birdvillage: The Movie”, “Beak’s Vacation”, “Beak’s Snowball Fight”, and “Second Nest”. Most recently, he announced the creation and production of the “Five Nights at Freddy’s film series, which are still expected to be released sometime in the future. By the end of 2020, Cawthon is expected to launch his eight video game from the “Five Nights at Freddy’s” series. That was followed by another title, “Five Nights at Freddy’s: Into Madness”,.
