In the comments of our recent preview of Star Fox Guard certain comparisons were made to a popular independent video game series. Being the responsible and mature professionals that we are, we decided that these parallels were worth taking one step further.
Check out our trailer for Star Fox Guard below with a heavy dose of artistic license, but be warned, what's seen cannot be unseen.
What's more scary; the fact FNaF was referenced or the game itself? xD
Very funny video regardless!
Alex. Get ready to go viral.
Haven't even got to watch the video yet, and the title makes me feel wildly uncomfterble. Should be a fun ride.
I was thinking the same during the Guard preview. I havn't played any of the Feddy games, but from what I know of the premise, Guard is certainly a tad familiar.
Hahaha! Wow that is scary!!!
I wish the jumpscare at the end of the video had been some cheesy dialog from Slippy instead, but otherwise, I enjoyed it.
I've enjoyed the silly side of NLife videos as of late
Now that I think about it; Star Fox Guard is the result of Project Guard from a while back, right? If I remember correctly; Project Guard was revealed before FNaF became a thing.
I mean, Slippy IS the member of Star Fox who'd be most likely to become a serial killer.
The first FNAF started off as something truly innovative: a horror game without the player being able to defend himself or herself, with a paranoia-based game mechanic that managed to make players (as Tv Tropes put it best) "scared of being startled".
And then, three sequels in the span of a year, coupled with a rabid fanbase referencing FNAF in every single Youtube video parodying Chuck & Cheese's animatronics, with Youtube accounts acting in-character as the FNAF animatronic themselves, singlehandedly rubbed the series of its novelty. What started off as a welcome change in survival horror games ended up being something I, along other haters, can't wait to see put out of its misery.
Being attacked by players on purpose for years would take a toll on anyone's mental health.
Ya know its funny I sorta got FNAF vibes from the whole camera thing. I can easily imagine somone hacking this game and replacing the robots with the animatronics from FNAF and the core being the office
This actually looks fun and engaging. FNaF not so much. Is that Wall-E??
@DarthNocturnal It really is not. In Freddy's, you have to watch the cameras so you know when the 'animatrons' come to you. When they are near you, you need to close the doors, else they will jumpscare you and you loose. But the doors have limited energy, and when they are closed the energy gets lower (I know, it's the stilly classic video game logic). In Slippy's, you control the cameras and take out the enemies. You have to protect the core of your base by shooting them. Freddy's is a survival horror game where you stay still, but know what happens outside of your room thanks to some cameras, while the Slippy's is a Tower Defense where you control the defense system and need to shoot every enemy, and you know where the enemy stands thanks to some cameras, which can also shoot. Their core mechanics are very different, especially since Guard lets you move the cameras.
@Wolfgabe It's much easier to hack FNaF. There are already tons of copies and mods, so a mod dedicated to Guard isn't too far-fetched. But the Wii U modding scene is just at its very early stages. When emulation is in very early phases, don't expect big mods to come out soon. Soft mods (such as a few changes for some numbers, making a character have more strengths/weaknesses or just change its appearance) could come out one or two years later, but big mods that make the entire game look different will take some time. Just look at Sonic Lost World PC's mods. There have already been a few alternate Sonic models, but there are very few unpolished hacks of the first level, and those are made by already having existing assets. Guard is so different, it would probably require a lot of time to make the animations feel polished, the whole area to look like a human building instead of a farm in the middle of nowhere and by making a FNaF version for every single enemy robot.
@Gerbwmu Yeah, the videos are very entertaining. Just mindless fun. That's what I want from YouTube. Just something based on what is already happening/happened and taking it to an unrelated direction just for the sake of a good laugh.
Johnny 5 is alive!
So is Slippy suddenly Jigsaw?
@Parkour_LMan Or they could just reskin the enemies which would be much simpler
Well done, Nintendolife, well done
i think project guard being added to star fox only leaves one possible logical conclusion: zelda u will only be playable with project giant robot controls.
I always knew this game had a Five Nights at Freddy's feel to it, without being scary. I will have fun playing this mode for sure!
Can't wait to play Guard in the dark next week XD This was a very funny trailer.
I still say this could have R.O.B. protecting his horde of batteries from rouge versions of himself, while having chibi robo being your buddy who fixes your cameras and upgrades them(my opinion!)
wow what a rip off of 5 nights at freddys on app stores on phones a weak version
Shouldn't it be 5 nights at Grippy's?
