Lemme get you all up to speed on what Mechanical Instinct is.

Mechanical Instinct is a Five Nights at Freddy's fan-game I'm developing that'll contain some unique features (most likely) not used before. And I could use some help creating ideas for the game. Below is a list of ideas I've shared, either I made or given from others that I really like and will likely implement or pending. 

There are some ideas that I'm in need of more than others. Key features/mechanics I'm good on for now, but they're always welcome. Right now I'm in need of potential Locations and Stories.


Feel free to share your ideas in the comments below! I'm looking forward to hearing what you have to share!

EDIT: Something else I forgot to mention that I never thought I'd actually get. If you actually wanna help me make the game, and have the skills to do it and/or teach me as the lead developer, that'd be amazing!

  • 7 Nights, excluding potential Unlockable Nights [PENDING]
  • Flynn will adapt to how you "play", learning what cameras you use most, what to avoid, etc.
  • No Custom Night (Only 1 Animatronic)
  • LOTS of different and unique Jumpscares!
  • Nightmare Mode will be an unlockable gamemode in which the player must survive as long as possible in the seemingly endless night (Add Leaderboards?)
  • Camera Setup will allow the player to setup cameras wherever they'd like
  • Limited Free-Roaming; likely objective-based
  • The song, Mechanical Instinct by Aviators, can be found in the game's pending soundtrack
  • Secret Pass Codes can be found, allowing you to unlock Extras, Challenges, and Cheats [PENDING]
  • Competitive Multiplayer will allow you to play as either the Survivor or the Animatronic and play against each other [PENDING]
  • Located at a Robotics Factory (potential crossover/mention to Afton Robotics?)
  • The factory's name is Indigineer: Robotics & Engineering
  • Listening to: Mechanical Instinct by Aviators
  • Watching: Timeless
  • Playing: Detective Pikachu
  • Eating: Cereal

I have something that's been going on my mind lately, and I'm not sure if I want to go through with it or not. My dad has made me....quite a job offer, and there's no easy way of explaining it. My dad thinks I should join the Air Force, as a drone pilot. It's tempting to go, due to the many benefits of my services, but.... I'm not sure if I wanna go.

It's very beneficial if I go. Not only do I get paid, like any other job, but I get paid well! And they'll even pay to get me into college and, if I stay long enough, they'll even offer to buy me my own home (when I'm ready). However, if I go, I feel like I'm leaving everything behind me; that I have lots of unfinished business. And I'd be leaving all of my good friends for.....I don't even know HOW long.


What do you think? Should I become a Drone Pilot in the U.S. Air Force?
We're still early in development for Project Superstar, and we've come to the conclusion of allowing the community to aid us! To start us off, we will be holding a contest for the community to design a stage for the game. The theme? SPLATOON!

The rules are simple: Create a Super Smash Bros. Stage based on a Splatoon arena (ex: Blackbelly Skatepark). The winner will have their stage featured in the final product.

More details will be added, if/when needed. canceled



When you are ready to upload your entry, be sure to tag me so I can see it.
I'm making a space-themed game in which you take a role in the bridge crew and take control in one of many terminals of the ship, from Communications to Pilot, or even the Captain. 

LOCUS INCOGNITA is latin for Space Unknown. I actually took the term Terra Incognita, which means Unknown Land/Territory (Terra means land/earth), and swapped Terra with Locus (Locus means space). Pretty clever, right?

LOCUS INCOGNITA is a video game Starship Simulator, in which you and your friends will control your Starship in a variety of missions as you and your crew try to survive the dangers of space.


What do you think of the name LOCUS INCOGNITA for the title of my new game? (This is the 3rd game I'm working on)
Okay, as many of you already know, SilentDragon64 has hired me to make her a game. With the development going underway, her payment for my service is both in cash and free art requests. Despite paying me, too, she's offered me free art requests for life, which I gladly accepted. She's a great artist who deserves a lot of respect, so go check her out! And as some of you already know, I share commissions, art requests, fan art, etc of my stuff in my Gallery. So you'll be seeing a lot from her in my Gallery!
It may come as no surprise that I'm now an official video game developer with a small selection of games in the making, but as of today, I have been hired (by a fellow deviant) to work on a new horror-based RPG. Unfortunately, I can't share any details (mainly because I don't have any to share yet), but I am excited to be working with SilentDragon64 on this new game. I hope you're all excited for what I will create!
It's very simple, really. Just ask me a question down in the comments below, and I will answer them however I please. If and when I can, I might be draw my responses like many other artists!
Super Mario Legends by MarioMinecraftMix

For those who have been with me since the very beginning, you might recall and old picture I made, premiering my coming animated series, Super Mario Legends. Well, it's about time I pulled that skeleton outta the closet, because it is finally under development! I've got a small animation crew with me here (and growing in numbers), and we're finally getting this project underway! Stay tuned for more updates on Super Mario Legends and more!
Things have been really slow here on my page, and I apologize for it. But I have my reasons. The main reason is that I've been getting overwhelmed by the fact that I'm moving....again. Fortunately, this'll be the last time I ever move 'til I have to move out myself. Which.....isn't that far away, once you think about it. Anyways, because of the move, we're really tight on funds, which means I can't get any art supplies I need and whatnot. So I decided to open up a Patreon page, for those who want to help out. Patreon is a special fundraiser site, for those who don't already know. I hope to use Patreon as a fundraiser for many projects, but this will have to be first on my agenda. Just click the link below to find my page. If you help out, I will find some way to thank each and every one of you. I just....haven't determined what that'd be just yet. But I'll thank you all somehow, for those who support me.

Patreon, as I mentioned before, will be the fundraiser I mainly use for the time being. It will be used for many major projects, including game projects for Good-Win Studios.

That's right! As of today, I have registered for the Nintendo Developer Program, and am now eligible of creating and publishing games on select Nintendo platforms, such as 3DS, Wii U, and even Switch. Good-Win Studios is finally underway! I look forward to working with Nintendo and I look forward to seeing any upcoming fans enjoying the games I will make in the near-future.
For any fans of my PMD Illustrated Series, as well as PMD-UL, I have been working on a story for your pleasure. A book series of fanfiction based on my own twist of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon known as A Hero's Legend. Learn how the legendary hero, the Primal Guardian, became one of the greatest heroes in the world from the very beginning. Learn how it all started in this fabled tale of a young boy with an adventurous heart who fulfills his destiny as a legend, a god, and above all, a Hero.

Prologue: The End is The Beginning
Chapter 1: ______ - Coming Soon!

(Please note that this may change. I plan on uploading it Chapter-by-Chapter. However, if people wish for more at a time, I will upload them as whole books, or Arcs.)

Hey, everyone! I know I've made a lot of projects, and I'm overwhelming myself with all of them, but I think it's time to take a break from the majority of them and make a new project that I can work on fully. I plan on making an entire collection of RPGs that surround my favorite gamers, maybe some including myself. I can't share much as of now, other than the first two games will actually be a bit of a dual pack, of sorts. Like how Fire Emblem Fates has three different games, the first two unnamed titles will follow YouTubers, Markiplier and Jacksepticeye, on a grand adventure. Each game will have a different perspective of the same story. One as Mark, the other Jack.

This project will be a continuous one, but it's one I'm able to start on now.

For the past year, Five Nights at Freddy's (FNAF) has dominated the internet on a global scale, still rivaling other indie games of its time, like Undertale. And with five games in the official series and countless variants made by fans of all ages, FNAF has started to become more and more....predictable, for lack of a better word. As you all may know, I'm making my own FNAF fan-game called Mechanical Instinct, and I want it to become one of the fan favorites when it comes to FNAF. And my best shot of pulling that off is by making it scary once again. But with hundreds, if not thousands, of variations worldwide, it's almost impossible to make a brand-new game that's unique in its own aspect. I want this game to be scary, just as FNAF once was in its time. And perhaps having some tips and tricks from the fan-base might be my best shot. What do you guys think?

Can we make Five Nights at Freddy's scary again?
If so, how?

As the title suggests, we're nearly ready for the Grand Opening of the Guild!

There's really not much to be said, other than I look forward to what everyone will bring to this!





Okay, so a lot has been going on, which some of you may know some of it. But now it's time for me to inform you of all the current projects (if possible) that I am either currently working on, have been working on, started working on, and so on.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Unleashed
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Unleashed is a Roleplay Community for all artists, authors, and generic roleplayers. This project is still deep in development, and has been falling behind on it's deadline. The current news for this is that the grand opening of PMD-UL will be delayed even further. As of now, there is no longer a scheduled deadline. This is to give us more time to catch up, as well as study Pokémon Sun/Moon and see what it has to offer.

Mechanical Instinct (Five Nights at Flynn's)
Five Nights at Flynn's, now named Mechanical Instinct (as a placeholder, but potential name). Mechanical Instinct is a horror game in which you are to survive a week inside (location not decided), while being hunted by a single intelligent animatronic. Each night will be progressively harder than the night before, as the animatronic, Flynn, grows in intellect and learns of new ways to hunt you down. This project is still in its early design stages, but this project has begun to go full-throttle!
Escape from Furnace
Escape from Furnace is a potential series of games, inspired and redesigned from the dark thriller book series. You are Alex Sawyer, a young teenager who is arrested for a crime he did not commit, and is sentenced for life in prison. He is sent to the largest, dangerous, and deadliest prison in the world: Furnace Penitentiary. The prison is filled to its core with gangs, soldier-like guards, and monsters that dwell in the dark. Now you must do the impossible-escape-in order to survive.



Now, there are a couple more smaller projects on the table, but they're not in too far of development to be able to explain. But I assure you, I've got my hands full. I do apologize if there's any inconvenience, but I've got a lot to handle. I'm sure you all understand the struggles I'm going through, but it's nothing I can't handle. Thank you all for all your love and support!

Great news, everyone! Due to some help from all of you, we're getting shockingly high amount of interest! It's still a small growth, but it's a big step forward! Thank you everyone for your efforts in helping us save the guild, and continue to help us grow! Spread the word of our guild by advertising!

Now, to celebrate, I'm opening up a contest, in which everyone in the guild can participate in! Everyone will get a chance to win some prizes, too. They are small prizes, unfortunately, but it's all I have on me to give out.

Everyone will attempt to draw the NPCs in PMD-UL, in which you can pick 1 or more to draw in a single illustration. The following NPCs you can draw are....

AEDDON: A grey-scaled Sceptile who has saved many lives in his long adventurous life. Although has many secrets, he's a very brave, yet friendly Pokémon.
-APPEARANCE: Grey-Scaled, White Scarf, a glowing green amulet (hidden underneath scarf), Black Leather Straps (to carry gear), Mechanical Arm (Right Arm), Gold Hoop (Left Wrist), carrys a Sebrulite Sword (Light-Blue Sword [Sebrulite is a gem, kinda like Diamonds]) {Left Hip}, a staff (Back), and a Grand Grimoire (Right Hip) [A Grimoire is a book of magic spells and/or incantations. Commonly used in witchcraft]

JACK: A kind-hearted Haxorus who grew up in a small town with his adopted mother. His hometown was attacked, forcing him to flee to the city. There, he met Aeddon, his destined-to-be partner and friend.
-APPEARANCE: Mega Armband [Celtic Design] (Upper-Right Arm), Scars (Various)

TEMPERANCE: A mysterious Bisharp with a dark past. This ex-assassin has fled his creed, thanks to the help of Team Prime. He continues his training alongside his father, Lotherus, while being members of their new team.
-APPEARANCE: A Dark-Orange/Brown Shawl

LOTHERUS: A Pangoro who has "retired" from his life as an assassin. He's skilled as he is wise, but shares a deep connection with his son. Rescued and joining Team Prime, their bonds grow stronger.
-APPEARANCE: Orange Shaolin Garb (Left-Shoulder Exposed)


As for the prizes I previously mentioned, the winner will have his/her art shown in the Featured Menu on PMD-UL, as well as a free Pokémon-related commission from yours truly. Good luck, everyone! And have fun!


:iconpmd-ul:
I apologize for making such a brief announcement, but we might have to cancel opening the guild. It hurts to admit it, but we've had little to no interest from the community. And don't take that the wrong way! What I mean is, we were hoping to see more activity in the Guild, even if it isn't really open yet. But almost no one's interested in participating. And that means for us, as the owners of the Guild, that this might have been a big waste of time and effort.

Of course, this might change if things pick up the pace suddenly. If we were to gain enough interest in this project, we might try to hold it open. Even if we lost a large portion of our staff, we can hold our ground. But we can't do that without you, the community.
