Poppy Playtime is one of the hottest games of 2021. With the first chapter of the game, it attracted many players. In the first chapter, Poppy Playtime has already brought out the story framework, making players curious about what kind of secrets this game hides. Here are some theories of Poppy Playtime’s story speculation.
Introduction to Poppy Playtime
The story tells that the player, a former employee of the Playtime toy company, suddenly received a package from the former company one day, which contained a videotape and a letter. The videotape is a Poppy Playtime toy promo from 1950, and the envelope in the package reads “Everyone thought the employees disappeared 10 years ago, but they’re still there, find this flower”. So, the player returns to the abandoned Playtime toy factory.
In the process, players can get a robotic arm that can grab things, and a large Huggy Wuggy is also seen standing in the middle. While exploring, Huggy Wuggy suddenly attacked and launched a series of ventilation duct chases. After defeating Huggy Wuggy, the flower wall can be seen. After entering, you can find Poppy Playtime in the cabinet. The first chapter officially ends after the player releases Poppy.
Poppy Playtime’s videotape
Not long ago, the studio launched the NFT poster of Poppy Playtime. These posters will have the year of manufacture of the toy written. In order, there are Poppy Playtime, Bron, Candy Cat, Huggy Wuggy, Kissy Missy and Boogie Bot. But there is actually a seventh toy in the game, which is the Cat-Bee that can be seen in every corner of the game. Cat-Bee is likely to be Playtime’s latest product. Due to an accident in the factory, the shipment could not be successfully shipped.
Then, there are videotapes of different colors hidden in the game. These tapes are the crux of the story. In the first videotape, the new head of innovation designs a security system for the factory. Then in the second tape, two employees said they couldn’t find the box for the Huggy doll and complained about the orphanage-related project. It can be speculated here that Playtime has cooperated with some adoption centers to start adopting orphans. The next video is an interview with an employee named Stella. Stella said she has been very fond of toys since she was a child, and how wonderful it was for her. She also expressed that she wanted to stay as a child, so she hoped to find a way to become young again.
The last videotape was a recording made by a scientist. He said in it that experiment number 1006 escaped and started fighting in the factory. Here, we can analyze that the toy factory is producing toys on the surface, but it is actually conducting human experiments in secret.
Poppy Doll Speculation
The character Stella has been mentioned before. During the interview, she hoped that she could become young again and not grow old. In Poppy’s promotional video, she said I’m a Real Girl Just Like You, which means she is likely to be Stella. Evidence of it all is hidden in the official trailer. The trailer features an instructional video on how to care for a Poppy doll. At the back of the film, the doll and the contraption can be seen full of blood while the doll is looking into the camera.
From this, it can be speculated that Playtime’s so-called smart dolls are actually people who transplant human internal organs into dolls. The most important thing is that the voices of Stella and Poppy are both dubbed by Nola Klop, which also confirms that Stella is the first experimental Poppy. After Poppy sold out, Playtime spent a lot of money building a Make-A-Friend automation facility and started mass-producing the aforementioned toys. If the inside of the toy is really human organs, where do these organs come from?
Players still remember the just mentioned factory adoption of orphans plus the poster says that orphans deserve a new life. This means the company turns them into toys and sells them to a family. In addition to orphans, employees are also used for experiments. Because in the opening letter it was written “Everyone thought that the employees disappeared 10 years ago, but in fact they are still there”.
Huggy Wuggy’s speculation
Huggy Wuggy is the best-selling toy in the toy line, and the reason he was identified as number 1006 is simple. He is the only monster in the game that actually interacts with the player. There is a reference to the number 1006 in the video, and in the background you can hear what appears to be Huggy climbing the ventilation duct. If the player is caught, the screen will show “Number 1006, isn’t he great?” It’s easy to think of Huggy.
Another inference is that the supervisor has said that the factory has a hidden security system. This security system may be Huggy Wuggy’s mascot part-time as a security guard in the factory. The reason is that when he is chasing the player, he is very knowledgeable about the ventilation ducts. If Huggy is really the role of the security guard in the factory, who is the number 1006?
In addition to the blue Huggy Wuggy, the company also launched a girl version, the pink Kissy Missy. But this Kissy Missy has a lot of doubts. In the game, Kissy is completely absent. Also, Kissy’s poster is full of company rules. Among them, employees are not allowed to stay for more than 8 points, and they are not allowed to enter the innovation area without permission. This is to imply that human experiments all start after 8 o’clock, and Huggy will start patrolling after 8 o’clock.
Poppy Playtime’s Puzzle
Whenever a player is caught, a random message will appear on the screen to talk to the player. Among them, two of the more critical ones are thank you science, and there is a strange text. As for why you need to thank science, it may be the ability to gain immortality. The strange text, after being analyzed and unraveled, means: “Stay here, they need help”.
This sentence may have been conveyed by Poppy. Because if the rescued Poppy is really Stella, she’s probably a good person. One speculation is that after seeing many innocent people being victimized, Poppy wrote to the protagonist asking him to save them. In the official Chapter 2 trailer, Poppy can be heard saying that Mommy doesn’t like guests. There will be a special voice in each official NFT poster, and each voice has several English letters.
After collecting all NFT posters, special orphan posters will be obtained. The voice of this orphan poster is a riddle. Players must match the letters just obtained to five sentences according to their assignments.
The above stories are all speculation. Players who want to know more about the story will have to wait until Chapter 2 comes out to gain a deeper understanding of what the story is about.
