Top 7 Secrets Related To Poppy Playtime
Being one of the best horror games, it allows the players to interact with the surroundings with a device that looks like a Hookshot and a GrabPack. The game is loaded with nostalgia (it’s mysterious, by the way). Since it’s jam-packed with features and personality, it has sparked curiosity among many players, so let’s get into some secrets to enjoy the real essence of the game!
Poppy Is Not Only A Name
The first chapter of the game starts and ends with Poppy, who seems to be an emotional yet eerie doll. It goes without saying that it’s more than a dollar, but her name is the most important part. To be precise, the poppy is a red-colored flower – the color is the same as the color painted around Poppy’s room door. These flowers usually symbolize sleep, remembrance, and death.
Whenever you pass around Poppy, you wake her up even when she is locked up in the room. In addition, she keeps saying, “I am a real girl just like you,” which means there are chances that she is the outcome of death. In addition, Poppy also means that you uncover the memories that are buried in the isolated, dark, and deserted factory that swoons with evil spirits.
Disastrous Working Conditions At Playtime Co.
The questionable past of the facility is slowly revealed through impeccable environmental storytelling, and there are some hidden tapes that are launched during the process. In addition, the posters are plastered all over the rusted walls that show rules about the employees, including;
- Don’t hide behind the door to scare Laithe Pierre
- Don’t step foot in the innovation wing if you don’t have authorization
Honestly, the posters seem harmless on the surface, but the posters that say, “breaks longer than ten minutes aren’t permitted” are more suspicious. This is because it’s beyond the zippy and vivacious jabs on the current work conditions.
Tapes Signal Some Disastrous Secrets
The plot of Poppy Playtime is loaded with mystery, and there is just-enough exposition in the game, but it’s not the same. This is because if you invest some time in exploring the factory, you will stumble across the optional VHS tapes that share secrets about the situation. These tapes can be easily located if you have an old TV and a VCR.
Each tape covers a specific part of the sordid history of Playtime Co., such as a scientist not caring about his colleagues’ screams as he conducts experiments and staving off old age. In fact, we think that the experiment 1-0-0-6 is highly likely to be Huggy.
More Monsters Are On The Way
Ranging from a blue abomination to a leggy design, Huggy Wuggy is the ultimate monster in the horror history of the game. Huggy Wuggy is a thin and tall monster like Slender Man and is based on the plaything you regularly see in kids’ hands. However, this isn’t all for Poppy Playtime because, with the teaser of chapter two, there are more monsters on the way.
For instance, the experiment 1-0-0-6 from the tape suggests Kissy Missy, who is a pink companion of Huggy Wuggy. In addition, there is Bron (it’s a brontosaurus), candy cat, and boogie bot.
Everything Seems To Be Alive
Before the first chapter wreaks havoc on you by unleashing the full Huggy Wuggy, you have to put together a puzzle room – it’s pretty literal. This is because you really have to search for the parts and conjoin them together to create a toy known as Cat-Bee. It’s a cat with wings, but the machine you choose for storing the spare parts will keep watching you (yes, it has eyes!).
There is a Make A Friend machine, which has huge and round eyes with little beady pupils; they watch you every step of the way. At this point, it’s important to wonder why a machine would have a set of eyes. Is it for experiment or for security? Only time will tell!
Huggy Keeps Watching You
You might think that Huggy is a mindless beast, but it’s not the case. Rather, it is a skilled and well-known hunter. As soon as you step into Playtime Co, Huggy will start keeping tabs. For instance, when you start the cursed quest, you will be able to see the prominent status of Huggy in the atrium. However, it vanishes away from the scene, particularly from the pedestal.
In addition, the game has subtle visual and audio cues that show that Huggy is around, such as a pair of eyes peering through wall gaps and a sliding and fluffy limb that stares from the edge of frames. However, these small signs stop when the battle begins, or in particular, when Huggy is ready to hunt and kill.
When the scary running and chasing through the conveyor belts and ventilation ducts end, Huggy will come off the catwalk and keep bouncing off the walkways and pipes until Huggy is swallowed by an industrial abyss that’s placed below the catwalk. Honestly, it’s hard to identify, but there are some dark blood spots where the mass of Huggy meets metal.
Having said that, there are chances that Huggy is not just cross stitches and synthetic fur; rather, it’s a living organism. It can be ensured by human-like eyes and wicked teeth.
