Default UNDERTALE - SO hyped for the destruction of humanity

Undertale is coming out...tomorrow. Signs point to it being something else.

It's an indie RPG by Toby Fox, who did a lot of the music on homestuck or something? Every enemy can be "defeated" nonviolently by some means. Enemy turns take the form of bullet hell type sequences that you have to dodge, but it's not meant to be difficult and you can take multiple hits anyway. There are skeletons.



There's a demo that has been around for a while. You can download it on the official site. The full game will be $10.

Default WARNING: DOG MARRIAGE

I beat the game and it was pretty neat. There's one thing I'm trying to do right now which I still haven't figured out, which is sparing Undyne. I thought it might have something to do with doing Mettaton's quiz show and then reloading a save from before the fight, but I still can't seem to figure it out. Feelin kinda dumb here.

This game...is definitely something. Some of it is weird in a way that isn't quite on my wavelength, but it is interesting. Everything with Mettaton was a fucking experience. Same thing with Temmie Village. The ending sequence mostly ruled, except for a few things I didn't like for picky picky reasons.

It's not an exceptionally long game. I just finished it myself.

Epithet: She never gives up, so SPAREing her won't work. There is another way to end the fight nonviolently, though.

Also, since I'm pretty sure the ending sequence changes dramatically based on the presence or absence of Undyne, what exactly didn't you like about it? It might be addressed in an alternative ending.

I just started it this morning! So hyped, the demo was incredible and I've already seen some smart changes.

It's not a super long game. I thought it was like 5 hours, but maybe it's more. I still spent an unreasonable amount of time playing it yesterday, though.

Nothing to do with Undyne's presence or absence. I thought the EXP/LOVE acronym stuff was a little corny, and idk what I thought about the final boss stuff with Flowy's FINAL FORM. I liked how juvenile its attacks were though. That fit.

Ah.

There's more to the game after Puella Magi Flowey, if you care to do a replay.

I've solved the piano puzzle but can't play back music that I hear worth anything. Can anyone PM me the solution?

I had to make a difficult choice as to the priority of games, what with this coming out around the same time as MGSV and Mario Maker, but I was able to begin this tonight. I don't think I have enough good things to say about it, and I haven't even left Snowdin!

I am attempting a pacifist run initially, because I have heard that doing violence causes irrevocable consequences for subsequent playthroughs, and because the Spare mechanic seems much more interesting than the combat system. I plan to take it slow, although I have been warned it is short.

I have bought into the hype, and now I'm crossing my fingers and closing my eyes SUPER HARD for a Linux port.

Oh! Hey, sure, if folks are reporting it works well so far, I'll try WINE with the demo at some point, hopefully soon!

Been a while since I used it to try games (v1.2 maybe?)*, and I remember it being imperfect. The version I've got here on Linux Mint seems to be v.1.6.2, so I've probably got a fair amount to try out.

* Several years ago, either case. Last game I really tried was the Windows version of l'Abbaye des Morts, and it played slowly & without sound.

Done with this. I didn't kill anybody - not Asgore and not even Flowey, but after the credits rolled, Flowey said I could've done things better with Alphys. Did my "pacifist, but not your fucking therapist" run end in... imperfection!?
