Specifically, his first theory was that you were the killer trapped in an eternal purgatory of being haunted by your victims, which seems to be exactly the plot of Ultimate Custom Night.
I think the main difference was, in the theory video, the hell was self inflicted. Though even then that might fit the "The player is still Michael" theory.
Seems I'm posting at another odd time, but Scott made a post after all! It's not addressing the chat mishap, but he acknowledged Dawko and DJ Sterf's efforts, and fully expects others to clear 50/20 mode. And, he wrote that he's content with the game as it is.
EDIT: Dawko has cleared 50/20! He's bound to have a lot of good questions for Scott in the interview.

Dawko's got his versions of the "who are you playing as" theories up. He's done it in two parts, one which explains why it's possibly William, and another why it's possibly Michael.
Part One (William):
Part Two (Michael):
Caveat, I have only read the first book (my editing on Fourth Closet was mostly cleanup and policy stuff like indentation and spoiler tagging), but one thing that always stuck about to me on the first book is that when confronted, William Afton says he was the business half of Fazbear's Family Diner, while Henry was the idea man, the one who made the animatronics possible.
However, in the games, it seems to be the reverse. Sister Location implies Afton made the animatronics, between that opening dialogue, and the fact that the Funtime Animatronics were explicitly designed with child-kidnapping devices, it suggests that he was, at minimum, Henry's equal. Meanwhile, Pizzeria Simulator has you, on Henry's behalf, running a Pizzeria Tycoon-style.
I think that's the difference between the two canons. In the book-universe, Henry created the animatronics, while in the games Afton was the inventor. This is the nail upon which everything happens either For Want or In Spite Of

Odd confession about the voices in Ultimate Custom Night: It seems like most people are saying that the Nightmare animatronics have the scariest voices. But to me, the scariest is Withered Chica.
Perhaps her voice could be considered less scary if you just imagine it as someone talking into a fan, but still... something about her voice just does a really good job of capturing the idea of "old, broken animatronic that wants to kill you." It's really unsettling to me.
New Game Theory FNAF vids:
MatPat's take on the "William Afton is in Hell" theory and on just who "The One You Should Not Have Killed" is meant to be.
The first half of a new timeline based on Ultimate Custom Night and Five Nights at Freddy's: The Fourth Closet, one detail he's changed from past theories I find interesting is he's going with the idea that "Fredbear's Family Diner" was the sister location and where the Bite of '83 occurred and was open concurrently with Circus Baby's Pizza World.
The second half of the timeline theory (link starts after the merch ad), which mostly focuses on a proper overall timeline and how The Reveal regarding Charlie in The Fourth Closet's continuity is basically what happened with Michael Afton in the game continuity.
It really does seem as if the biggest difference between the game and book continuities is which of the two, Henry or Afton, is the actual robotics expert. The specifics of everything that happens after seems to stem directly from that fact.

Surprised no one ever discussed the Scott Cawthon interview here.
FNAF's coming to the Switch.
Weeell, Scott hasn't confirmed that it's coming to the Switch. Just that it's coming to a console.
More FNAF coming...
Apparently that FNAFTALE project that got bullied out of existence came back.
Not actually sure if it's the same one.
There also seems to be a full fan game of FNAF World with the twist of letting you play as the "bad guys."
