What is Poppy Playtime all about?

We already started off by revealing that in Poppy Playtime, you play as a former employee of a toy factory that’s already closed for good. We know what you’re thinking: what the heck is my character doing back at the factory if it’s closed?!

Well… it all starts with your character receiving a letter asking for your help. The only way for you to help out whoever sent that letter is by going over to the toy factory. From there, you set out on a journey of horror and jumpscares all over. The game is definitely like Five Nights at Freddy’s but in a slightly bigger space.

  • The first chapter of Poppy Playtime was released on October 12, 2021. Back then, players had to purchase the first chapter before they were able to play it. Now, MOB Games is offering the first chapter for free on Steam while the second chapter is available as a purchasable DLC
  • Poppy Playtime is also available on both iOS and Android devices for a small fee. It’s still the same game, just with different controls fitting for mobile devices

How do I play Poppy Playtime?

In the first chapter, you’ll need to go around the toy factory and collect VHS tapes. These tapes will help lead you in uncovering what exactly is going on in the toy factory. The only catch is as you make your way around the factory, there is danger lurking in every corner.
