Another terrifying game worthy of your Halloween consideration is Poppy Playtime. Created by MOB Games, this indie horror was made available on Oct. 12. It begins with an unnamed protagonist receiving a letter inviting him to his previous workplace, the factory of an old toy company named Playtime. Once entering the factory, the player must complete a series of short tasks that each open new passageways and reveal items to aid you on your journey. Although it appears simplistic, it wouldn’t be a horror game without something chasing you. In Poppy Playtime, there is only one monster, a large but terrifying toy called Huggy Wuggy.
Between the eerie abandoned toy factory and the immortalized giant doll, MOB Games nailed the fundamental aspects of a horror video game. Although some of the puzzles were tricky to decipher, this game is well-executed considering it´s recently developed and only the franchise’s very first chapter.
These video games are not only scary but their gameplay matched the eeriness of Halloween from start to finish. Glowstick Entertainment and MOB Games have done an amazing job creating horrifying games that include both quality storylines and unique horrifying monsters. They both strived to make a good horror game and from countless reviews, it seems they succeeded in doing so.
