The recent Poppy Playtime phenomenon seems unparalleled. Ever since the first game released last year, the indie-style, AA horror experience became a world-wide craze, captivating both adults with its classic scares... and even kids with its twisted but adorable (?) characters. Now, after the incredible success of chapters 1 and 2 and all the related merchandise, MOB Games is ready to announce the arrival of the third part.
Poppy Playtime Chapter 3 will be available sometime in 2023, in a yet to be defined date, but the first teaser trailer leaves meaty material for fans to devour:
The brief clip, merely a minute long, got more than three million views two days after going live on YouTube. It makes clear where Huggy Wuggy and Mommy Long Legs (Experiment 1222 or Marie Payne), previous chapters' antagonist, are now, and it also introduces some of the new terrors Playtime Co. has in store for players. The gas mask is the main clue, but also the P.T.-like radio voice over and the disturbing kid voices make it perhaps the darkest chapter yet.
What are they doing to the children? Are they turned into toys? What's going on with their moaning and the sirens?
