You play as an ex-employee for Playtime Co., a company that produced popular toys. You can listen to VHS tapes throughout the game hinting to the game’s plot. When you leave the welcome center, you enter a room with a giant statue of Playtime Co.’s most famous toy, Huggy Wuggy. You then need to distribute power to the facility but when you are done with that and head back to Huggy’s room. He is gone, you then enter the innovation wing and find your other grabpack hand. You then go through the conveyor belt to reach the make a friend station. When you distribute power to the station, you are then attacked by Huggy Wuggy and chased through the conveyor belts by him. You then enter a giant poppy flower painted on the wall, leading to a toy named Poppy. You open its case, the screen goes black, and chapter 1 ends.
