Poppy Playtime is a survival horror video game. The video game is developed and published by MOB Games. On October 12, 2021, the first chapter of Poppy Playtime was released on Steam for Microsoft.
It was directed by Isaac Christopherson, produced by Zach Belanger, designed by Dana Willoughby, programmed by Achebe Spencer, and composed by Zachary Preciado. This single-player game became so popular that Chapter 2 of Poppy Playtime is on its way to being released.
Chapter 1 of Poppy Playtime
In the first chapter of Poppy Playtime, the player receives an anonymous letter that requests their return to the factory. The player is then provided with the task to locate the employee of the company with an image of a poppy.
After this, the player is quickly loaded into the abandoned factory where they have access to a storage area that houses GrabPack and VHS tape. The player then proceeds to enter the main wing area of the factory, where a large statue of Huggy Wuggy is placed.
If the GrabPack is placed on the sensor, the power will get exhausted and for gaining access to the power chapter, the player is assigned the task of retrieving a key that is required to unlock the door to the power chamber. Also, the player needs to attach wires with the GrabPack in another room which turns on the power and line. By the time the player completes these tasks, Huggy moves to another location.
The player is then required to find four power cells in the warehouse and lay their hands on the second-hand GrabPack. Similar tasks go on in Poppy Playtime, Chapter 1. The first chapter ends when Poppy’s eyes are awakened which is visible through a light flicker.
