DELTARUNE - New Game from Toby Fox - Chapter 1

Postby BobisOnlyBob » 7 months ago

DELTARUNE is an anagram of UNDERTALE.

https://www.deltarune.com/

The Undertale twitter has some "mysterious messages" promoting it. https://twitter.com/UnderTale

With respect to the messages on the site, I'd like all discussion of this game to wait until tomorrow at the absolute earliest, but figured I'd spread word of its existence. I have not played it yet, but I am given the impression by the tweets alone that the game will be acting as a sort of "interactive survey", a teaser for his upcoming major project, and a connection back to one of Undertale's unresolved and most mysterious plots.

Finished it.
Even beat the Bonus Boss, whose theme tune is my favourite new track.

What the fuck. Everything about this game, my head is full of fuck.

In case anyone hasn't seen it, this answers a lot of questions: http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1sqn3p9

The tl;dr of that can pretty much be summed up thusly.
Deltarune is a basically demo, but it is also chapter one of the story (which is essentially an AU of Undertale at most). All further chapters will come out when they're all ready, and you'll buy them together. Toby has no clue when it'll be done and plans on making a team to get it done. Since that process hasn't started yet, he can't even make any predictions. Similarly, stuff might change, but that's what happens in game development and part of why he needs a team. And the soundtrack is already for sale on his bandcamp ( https://tobyfox.bandcamp.com ) and will come to other platforms soon, probably.
But to echo what others have said, Deltarune is amazing. I recently replayed Undertale and have it fresh in my mind, and I honestly feel like this is just BETTER.

The whole engine is a huge improvement.
Multi-party, alternative spare system (pacify), multi-ACT system, Graze-based energy (TP) building, dynamic bullet boards, more complex character sprites, field encounters instead of random battles, just... the improvements keep piling up, even if Jevil and the King are the only really challenging exploration of the new systems.
But man, that ending? It's just so...

Disheartening.

My two favorite parts of the system. I even laughed to myself on discovering these thinking "We are going even further IN on the shooter genre and I love it."

you gotta go. you gotta leave

god that ending was so freaky. in general this game has a tone of teenage discomfort/dissociation and i'm really curious about where it's going to go with it

All of RichaadEB's works are beautiful, but his Undertale covers in particular are on another level. I didn't understand why he'd go back and cover Ruins, as Ace Waters had already done a cover for Determination: Blue Side, but then he blew the entire original composition beyond even Toby Fox's compositional skills in the last minute and a half and elevated it to a spine-tinglingly great work. Ryan Lafford's piano work is incredible in this too.
