Poppy Playtime review
Poppy Playtime is an indie horror game with scary toys and an abandoned toy factory. You have to survive the evil for the whole night and get out before you get killed. The game was produced by MOB Games and released on October 12, 2021. You can download Poppy Playtime on your PC from the Steam Store.
There are lots of bright colors in Poppy Playtime on PC games, which is rather unique for a horror game. However, the graphics here are incredibly realistic. You play from a first-person perspective and with a big screen that reveals all the blood thrilling atmosphere you will miss the Poppy Playtime mobile version. Yet, there are no Android or iOS options. You will not find Poppy Playtime for Xbox and PS either. So, if you consider yourself an easily scared person, you may consider other games. This one provides highly realistic images of beautiful dolls and stuffed animals that turned out to be monsters.
Once you install Poppy Playtime you receive access to the 1st chapter. You have to learn how to control your moves which does not take much time. Before you enter the spooky plant, you have some time to practice by searching for the GrabPack with two mechanical hands attached. Without them, you will not be able to grab any objects or turn on the electricity. You can order Poppy Playtime and start playing. There is no Internet connection required so you can do it anywhere. Controls are intuitive but you still need to have quick reactions since in no time you will be in danger, walking around the rooms of Playtime Co.
You start this adventure or terrible experience with the creepiest nightmares from your childhood as an ex-employee of Playtime Co. toys factory. You have to get inside the abandoned plant and find out the truth. This is not a free game, but it costs $4.99 which is less than a cup of good coffee. There is still only the 1st chapter that is considered to be a standalone full game. However, developers promise to reveal a new chapter. Although you can’t preorder Poppy Playtime 2 for now, we expect it in 2022.
This chapter is dedicated to the plant’s research you have to make. The main evil is Huggy Wuggy, once an incredibly popular toy. Now, this toy offers you death hugs, so you have to keep away from its long hands. You will not survive there even a minute without the GrabPack which you have to find. This is your first mission in the game and you have to make sure that you’ve learned how to use your mechanic hands after you find it. Pay attention to the fact that the length of the wire from your GrabPack is limited.
There is a well-developed plot in this game. You may enjoy the pre-story on Steam. There will be a commercial video from the factory when the toys were created.
