Friday Night Funkin… a video game all about a child getting jiggy with it that took the world by storm a few years ago. From youtube lets play videos, to custom fnf mods, truly Friday Night Funkin was a lightning in a bottle phenomenon. However, now that a few years have passed, you would think that a game as popular as FNF would still be dominating the online space, right? Wrong! In the year of our lord 2023, it seems like Friday Night Funkin has DISAPPEARED… and in this video, we’re gonna find out why. This is The REAL REASON Friday Night Funkin DISAPPEARED

  1. Friday Night Funkin just sorta.. quietly disappeared, sure when you look for it, there's still content made either days ago or weeks ago, but it just never shows up in our home page like it did, either we got bored of the same cycles of drama and etc, or we just found new content to watch.

  2. I feel like with the sheer insanity that is the modding community, if week 8 happens to release in this day and age, it would be an extremely daunting task to live up to that quality and do something different. I mean, it's like everything possible in the FnF engine has and will be done. Full on games have been made in it. And people have went on to make what they promised in the kickstarter trailer a reality anyway. At this point, anything they release will never live up to the standard. It will feel disappointing regardless.

    Edit: Shit didn't see that he covered this fact in the video nvm.

  3. this is gonna be like the omori situation all over again

  4. This game is basically having the same treatment as Omori and Undertale. Let me point out that just bc game devs stay quiet, doesn’t mean that production of the games are over as a whole. Matter fact, the funkin crew haven’t actually been silent whatsoever. PhantomArcade does streams where he worked on assets for one of the future weeks (the update will have more than one week btw) and the devs even have a Funkin Blog where they posts update about their progress of the game. And Ngl I would rather have a game or update that takes years and years to make, rather than a game that was quickly released in the span of 3 days. Fun fact btw: the update was going to come out last year, but the devs thought that it could be bigger and better and have more content in it, and I respect that. In conclusion, I really don’t think that the funkin devs scammed us. We just need to be patient and just wait. Game development isn’t easy and the devs brought this numerous times.

  5. I don’t think it’s cuz of the accessibility I mean that’s kinda part of it but osu mania is the same shit

  6. A somewhat big reason why fnf is going to take some extra time
    The funkin is rebuilding the game from the grown up changing how the game works etc.

    Another reason with the time is (in the nicest way possible) the funkin crew isn't triple A devs they are indie game developers and they aren't going to rush themselves.

    And for the scam argument people say:
    It'd be pretty impossible for a very odd reason
    Imagine you are the IRS and you notice someone all of a sudden someone has 2 million dollars out of nowhere
    They WILL investigate and its gonna be nearly impossible to run with the money.

    Another reason is also:
    When the Kickstarter was done the Funkin team never expected to get to 2 million.
    If Anything they expected maybe a bit over 100k
    So now they are now just a tad bit of stress knowing how they kinda have to do all of it
    (they were going to do it either way but the funkin crew are now going to be needing to do it with the eventual update)

    And also there ARE updates about how development is going
    And it's being posted on ninjamuffins Twitter where he talks about how things are going.

    But they are actually doing something that may help with development:
    The funkin crew is now hiring other game deve who worked on FNF mods
    (Nobody knows who they hired but they have hired maybe 3 people or so)

    Also they aren't pushing themselves at full speed-
    They are taking their time and putting in proper good work.

  7. One thing I'm excited for is the impact the next fnf update will have on the modding scene, especially the remix mods like bside or dside

  8. If you are skeptical about this game— the first 'theory' which shouldn't be a theory at all is all the reason to it.

    You have to remind yourself, they are making cutscenes, animations, voice acting, music, properly key-ing the notes and even collabing with other artists along with their own unique styles.

    Also, 2 years in game dev for that scale isn't "I got a scammed" moment- sure it's long, but that's the reality of making games, and yes, I am aware that Dani can make games within just a few month, but he was doing it with minimal effort— even literally including the video that he gets assets for the things he needs.

  9. I am still waiting for FNF, and always will. It has never left my brain, but sometimes playing the game is a great refresher as to why I fell in love with it in the first place. That being said, I don't think this epic full ass game will be coming ANY time soon. I'm just hoping it won't fall into the same issue Mighty No. 9 did in regards of promising way more than they could provide.

  10. Nah do not forget about gta 6 10 hole years since gta 5 and it’s still not out and now find are getting mad for only two years bruh

  11. I don't know if you guys know this but the funkin crew actually hired more employees to develop the game and even they have a website with (i think) weekly updates of the development, and also they needed to start a corporation to launch the game, so they aren't just 4 people but still game develoment take time, at least they promised an update would come in 2023

  12. God, I am glad I am not the only one who forgot about this game. I wish the week 8 would come out sooner, to keep the community alive. The game went downhill as soon as many mod creators got into drama and shit. Fnf will forever be my favorite game tho! 💪💪

  13. I believe FNF will come out, you forgot to mention the update that one of the devs said was gon release this year. that one v slice thingy

  14. just imagine how different things would've been if they had decided to hire mod creators for the kickstarter

  15. i haven't watched much of the video yet, but i can say that i'm not the biggest fan of the game at all, but i am quite curious.. i've just been assuming that it was a kickstarter scam lol

  16. I'm actually kinda glad the game is basically dead, it honestly was overrated and there was much better rhythm games to play. And the weirdo kids that would mimic it, good riddance. The GOOD part was the mods, that is where the game shined.

  17. Jesus is near! Repent for your sins, and may a fiery judgement strike those who refuse Christ!

  18. One contributing factor was probably how oversatured the mods were, the most well-known mods like Whitty, Tricky, Mid-Fight Masses and Bob really stood out for being different but now I feel like people have gotten tired of seeing oceans of movie-length songs of pure spam and random sound effects that barely go together

  19. Bf's not missing, he's just trapped inside of eternal hellscape with seemingly no spam limits with infinitely powerful members of the bambi species, and he is going through Limbo, Aggravation, Despair, Endowment, and many other painful experiences because bambi thought he was gonna steal his corn.

  20. Ninjamuffin got the 1$ Million in Kickstarter and ran with it ☠

  21. I will say one thing, as one of the Kickstarter backers, I did indeed receive my OSTs that I paid nearly 2 years later (yea it was that long, they did apologized a ton to the folks since that happened when the vinyl shortage happened and they didn't had the products let alone the stuff for it made yet so can you blame them for taking so long?) so that's one off the list and most of the folks who did paid for the Kickstarter do indeed get updates from time to time and just recently got a free alpha build for FNF to try out too so it's not dead in the water, but I can understand that some folks are pretty upset about it just should understand that when you have high expectations and your fans make better stuff than you do, it can be a pretty damn hard task to fulfill especially with a 2.2 million dollar budget too since the devs did talk about the problem back in 2022 and said that yea, they might've pushed the bar way too high and were working their A's off just to get the product done hence why they haven't been able to openly show anything for so long (like what happened with Omocat and Omori).

    So for those who think it's a scam, now it's less likely but I can understand why you thought it was for quite sometime tho

  22. Fnf has 1000 fans, I'm one of them
    Fnf has 1 fan, I'm one of them
    Fnf has 0 fans, I'm dead

  23. I really hope that there not lying I want a new fnf version

  24. i looked a LOT into fnfs base game developement, and well, they are redoing the whole game framework so modding is much easier and is doable in the base game without source code, being done by elitemastereric who was hired, and they are becoming a more true company hiring a lot more new people so need to do other things too along with game developement, and the next update before the base game is supposed to add pretty much everything except most the actual content except week 8 and a extra week for darnell, then they would have to add the actual content for the full base game the update likely after that or 2. I feel the main thing that is taking so long is redoing the games framework from scratch just about and trying to balance their developement and other things like merch and stuff

  25. My man you clearly lack knowledge in pc rythm games, but FNF did surpass the popularity of the other (except maybe Geometry Dash) was very popular because how easy it was to Mod and the amount of constant updates and mods from more popular series it had, and because the gameplay felt familiar.

    For other pc rythm games there's Osu!, Muse Dash, StepMania, to mention some of the most popular ones.

  26. Oh so that happened. I still have the copy of the 6-week FNF from 2021 on my PC…
    Man was wondering what happened. The game died out. It replaced among us in popularity even, but now its ded.

  27. I think Fnf should have had a free update every year or so, just to keep interest going. That's what i'd do with this game. Since everything is separated into weeks it would be possible and the free demo would still be like less than 1% the full game. Just make sure on a yearly basis you have a fairly polished build and ship out a new demo, possibly with only the bare essentials, maybe leave a few goodies in the code for people to data mine and be like "oh gosh I found a secret" yk?

  28. Among us in 2020 was popular in the "virus"

  29. I agree with everything u said in the video but they could atleast inform us about the game i mean i litlle teaser would not hurt much

  30. heyo longtime fnf fan here (derogatory lol), appreciate the research put into this vid but it’s missing info from places like twitter, the official funkin blog, and twitch so here’s what the people should know:
    – the team’s bigger than the original 4 developers now with new coders like EliteMasterEric and MtH, along with likely a whole slew of people who’ve yet-to-be-announced as being on the funkin crew
    – the next update is called the v-slice update, because it’s supposed to be a “vertical slice” of the full game’s content with most, if not, all of the new features
    – the developers are anticipating the update to come out this year
    hope this can dispel any misinformation about fnf’s development and that this didn’t come off as too haughty or long-winded 🙂

  31. It’s crazy I never heard about this thing until now

  32. I wonder when the next update will come out, I’ve kind of grown out of this game

  33. I later figured out that this was made in 100 Mile House in BC, Canada!

  34. What I hate FNF fandom is that a lot of people lost their reputation because random person decided to say: "lmao thar person groomer omfg" and by small fusses in general, awesome mods woth seemingly good future, were cancelled over nothing.
