The 2015 version of POPGOES was an earlier draft for the pre-rebooted POPGOES of 2016. The game was very similar to the final cut although it contains very different plot elements, and instead of Fritz Glade being the main protagonist, it was Mike Schmidt Jr, the son of Mike Schmidt who appeared in the first original Five Nights at Freddy's.

POPGOES: Silent Night

External link: POPGOES: Silent Night

POPGOES: Silent Night was a planned downloadable expansion for the 2015 version of POPGOES and would have include an additional seventh night. With the main game's draft dropped, this expansion was scrapped.


External link: POPGOES Encore

POPGOES Encore is a canned sequel to POPGOES's earlier 2015 draft. It was first conceptualized on late 2015 but was eventually cancelled, left with several unfinished models (although one of them is completed) and dozens of concept arts.

POPGOES 2-2016

External link: POPGOES 2-2016

POPGOES 2-2016 is a cancelled draft for the 2016 POPGOES sequel. The game suppose to take place after the first game's Grave Ending, where it sets in Fritz's house and the player would have played as Simon Fitzgerald himself. The player would have confront against the Popgoes animatronics' dreamcatcher counterparts, which were created by a gigantic animatronic-like machine named "Help".

POPGOES: Reprinted

External link: POPGOES Reprinted

POPGOES Reprinted is a cancelled bundle game that would made up of the first game's remake and the sequel to the 2016 continuity of POPGOES. The game was first teased on October 30, 2016 during Dawko's charity livestream, and was expected to release on 2018, but was ultimately cancelled. Despite its cancellation, the story is still considered canon to the 2016 continuity.

This project was combined with two games:

  • P1-Logo.png
    POPGOES 1: The Blackrabbit - It was meant to be a remake of the first game, including updated renders, gameplay changes, and more voice acting.
  • P2-Logo.png
    POPGOES 2: The Dead Forest - It was a direct sequel to the first game. The game would have set in a warehouse where Fritz must defend himself against from the skeletal versions of the Popgoes animatronics known as "the Epitomes", as well as severally damaged forms of the original animatronics called "the Heartless".

There was also originally a "Day of the Dead" DLC for The Dead Forest. Once downloaded, the Epitomes would have been reskinned with calavera textures.


External link: POPGOES 0

POPGOES 0, previously known as POPGOES IF, is a cancelled game and meant to take place before the events of POPGOES 2: The Dead Forest, developed by Phil Morg. It was initially made as a fanmade POPGOES game but later became official after Phil reveals it to Kane. The game was first teased at the ending of POPGOES Arcade 2, where Generated Popgoes' arm holding the music box was revealed at the right when brightening up the screen. However, the game was later decanonized and ultimately cancelled due to POPGOES 2: The Dead Forest requiring amount of plot changes.


External link: POPGOES Finale

POPGOES Finale is another cancelled game of the 2016 continuity. It was a compilation of three POPGOES Reprinted minigames and meant to be the final farewell to the POPGOES series.

Cancelled Novel & Comics

POPGOES: The Plastic Grave

External link: POPGOES: The Plastic Grave

POPGOES: The Plastic Grave is a cancelled project, that was originally a comic, later changed into a novel. It was meant to explain POPGOES' original plot. It was supposed to be written by Kane Carter and drawn by HLLX, later changed to PanDarcy. The latter finished three pages before the project's cancellation.

The plot involved Jeremy Fitzgerald telling his story to a character named Poppy (Nickname that Kane Carter originally went by on the internet). The first page showed dialogue between them, as Jeremy prepares to tell his story. The second page shows Toy Bonnie doing the bite of '87, with the third and last showing Jeremy himself in a hospital bed, head all bandaged up and a cork board at New and Improved Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, showing the company's reaction to the incident. The last page's dialogue has Jeremy explain how, due to the mass interest in his person and public seeing him as "The Victim", he changed his name to "Fritz Glade".

The cover art for novel version also implies that the connection between Popgoes' Pizzeria animatronics and the Toys would have been expanded upon and explained as well, as the Toys are prominently featured on the illustration, with corresponding Popgoes' Pizzeria animatronics below them. Interestingly enough, the novel's logo shows the "O"s in POPGOES being green, connecting to Toy Bonnie's and Popgoes' eyes, rather then Bonnie Glade's.

POPGOES: Heart of Stone

External link: POPGOES: Heart of Stone

POPGOES: Heart of Stone is another cancelled POPGOES comic, this one telling the story of how Stone the Crow would have been originally disconnected from the WeaselWare. It was to be written by Kane Carter and illustrated by Ellie "StupidButterfly" Patterson. Out of the 25 originally planned pages, only 8 were finished and released on Carter's twitter between 21st and 30th of December 2016. Four behind the scenes sketches were also shown on 05.01.2016.

The comic itself shows "Fritz Glade" driving to Popgoes' Pizzeria. Before coming inside, he notices that Stone had been vandalized. He takes out a 500gd cartridge out of the bird animatronic and makes his way into his office, greeting Popgoes, Sara and Saffron on the way. The last page shows him inserting the cartridge into his PC.

The BTS images, show off "Fritz"'s, Popgoes' and Stone's designs, as well as the original sketch of the third page.

POPGOES: Evolution

External link: POPGOES: Evolution

POPGOES: Evolution is a yet another cancelled POPGOES comic, tho this time meant as a tie-in for POPGOES 2: The Dead Forest, rather then the original game. It was scrapped when the game evolved into POPGOES: Reprinted and the team decided to have in-game comic book styled cutscenes. It was to be written by Kane carter and illustrated by TigeraRainbowra. The first and only completed page was released on Kane Carter's twitter on 9.12.2017. A second version of that first page was later sown off on POPGOES: Lost & Found on 28.06.2021. The next day a rough storyboard for the beginning of POPGOES Evolution would be shown off on the aforementioned account.

The plot would be about how the Simon Robot escaped and (almost) killed "Fritz". The first page has him chained up to a wall in Fritz's office, telling him how he can bring her (Bonnie) back if he is given access to the WeaselWare. The rest of the plot comes from the storyboard: seemingly after a time skip to the end of the original game/Black Rabbit Chapter, Simon is freed is crawls to "Fritz's" desk, presumably (almost) killing his creator. After finding himself in the dining area of Popgoes' Pizzeria, he is confronted by Bonnie Glade, her Blackrabbit body completed. Due to the storyboard lacking text, it is unknown how their conversation goes down. He then drags Strings into a different room (presumably The Dead Forest's office) and seemingly tears off his arms.

Non-Story Media Projects

POPGOES Memories

External link: POPGOES: Memories

POPGOES Ultraviolet


Kane Carter was interested in making new POPGOES games after the release of POPGOES Evergreen. Kane confirmed that if POPGOES Evergreen is successful enough upon its launch, he would make a sequel titled "POPGOES Ultraviolet", which would mainly focus on Simon.[citation needed]


  1. "Candy's and POPGOES both take place in a version of the FNAF universe where only the first three games happen. I'm not only clarifying what I initially said, but also that POPGOES is NOT CANON to FNAF just because of the Fanverse" - Kane Carter. September 26, 2020. Twitter.
  2. "Just for fun, what could the shared FNAC/POPGOES universe be called if it were given a name?
    We had a chat about this... maybe "Trilogyverse" since it only takes the first three FNAF games into account... or maybe something as simple as "The CPU" (Candy/Popgoes Universe)...
