In Poppy Playtime, players take on the role of a former Playtime Co. employee and visit an abandoned children's toy factory that went missing 10 years ago. As players progress through the levels, they must use their wits to solve various puzzles to move into new areas of exploration within the factory. While exploring these areas, eerie moments await players as they confront supernatural creatures they try to uncover the secrets of what happened in this mysterious place so many years ago.
The graphics are simple enough, but it still manages to create an eerie atmosphere, with enough detail to give each location a unique feel. From dark corridors filled with unknown creatures lurking around every corner to realistic-looking objects scattered throughout each level that may contain clues or items needed to complete the game's storyline. Poppy Playtime's gameplay is presented in first-person. As you progress through the story, you must solve various puzzles that are scattered throughout each level to unlock secrets. The game also has hidden items that you can find to get extra power-ups or unlockable content, such as concept art or bonus levels.
