Some Internet phenomena just refuse to damn well die. Y'know, meals posted on Instagram, viral videos of cats playing the piano, amateur models taking selfies in their bathrooms with their cooches out, all that stuff. These are the foundations of the Internet, right here, just as much as porn and those dumbass list articles of useless facts ('27 Things You Never Knew About Walrus's Foreskins').

Lesser successes of the web world just won't stop either. Five Nights at Freddy's, for instance. This one-man horror game series has been doing the rounds for some time now. It's mostly fare for Youtubers, generating views for ‘entertainers' howling at their screens at every jump scare.

So sue me, I'm a cynical old bastard.

If there's one thing Freddy's does do kinda well, and which keeps fans coming back, it's the lore. The game's a simple thing at first glance, but there's a lot going on behind the scenes. ‘Neath all this cheap-predictable-jumps-in-a-fast-food-restaurant stuff, there's a fairly deep story going on right here.

So, hell, let's increase series creator Scott Cawthon's Freddy's fortune with a spin-off novelization. Five Nights At Freddy's: The Silver Eyes is an actual thing that's happening, arriving December 22 as you can see from the tease at the official site. Any takers?
