Take a first look at your future enemy below in the final trailer to be released for Chapter 3.
In the game, you will explore Playcare, Playtime Co.’s never-before-seen orphanage, and also come face-to-face with CatNap, part of the Playtime Co.’s Smiling Critters line of plush toys. CatNap is loose in the abandoned factory and determined to put you in his Deep Sleep. You will also get your first look at new environments and newly discovered areas of the abandoned toy factory.

Chapter 3 contains five new challenges along with upgrades to items, such as the GrabPack, and new features including new hands and a gas mask to aid you through various portions of the journey.
“Chapter 3 is filled with so many sinister twists and turns, we can’t wait for players to experience it,” said Zach Belanger, co-founder and CEO of Mob Entertainment. “Many questions were left unanswered in Chapter 2, and with Chapter 3 being our largest installment yet, fans can finally get answers to some of their long-awaited questions. But new questions will also be raised which players may need to wait a little bit longer to have answered.”
If you are unfamiliar with Poppy Playtime, in it you take on the role of a former employee of toy-making company Playtime Co., who revisits the now abandoned factory 10 years after its employees disappeared. Along with trying to deal with enemies, gameplay involves solving puzzles with some requiring a gadget called the GrabPack which allows you to collect, grab, and pull objects.
