"A hilarious JRPG romp with far more than laughs on its side."
Hey guys. You can pre-order official UNDERTALE merchandise now. There are some shirts, stickers, and a poster. Will let you all know when we add even more.
“I have a couple of issues with the user interface.”
“If there’s a criticism to be had, it’s that sometimes Toby Fox doesn’t know when to let a joke go.”
Welcome to UNDERTALE. In this RPG, you control a human who falls underground into the world of monsters. Now you must find your way out... or stay trapped forever.
((Healthy Dog\'s Warning: Game contains imagery that may be harmful to players with photosensitive epilepsy or similar condition.))
Killing is unnecessary: negotiate out of danger using the unique battle system.
Time your attacks for extra damage, then dodge enemy attacks in a style reminiscent of top-down shooters.
Soulful, character-rich story with an emphasis on humor.
I thought I found a 7th dog, but it was actually just the 3rd dog.
If you play this game, can you count the dogs for me...? I\'m not good at it.

For my loyal readers, do you remember my Shovel Knight craze last year?
The graphics are a simple 8-bit style, and although it\'s considered "generic" because of the whole "8 bit indie game made by one guy" sort of thing, this game uses it properly. I know, that seems really weird, but it\'s true. If you play the game and take a certain route, the final boss WILL blow your mind with the visuals. Not much here to say, it\'s not what\'s supposed to make this game so noteworthy, but it\'s still acceptable nonetheless.
Undertale is a lot like Earthbound in many ways, the most notable trait being the turn based combat and how it\'s portrayed. Nowadays, LOTS of games have opportunities where you can spare or kill a certain character and decide their fate. Their flaw, however, is that the said death often is just shrugged off, both in the game\'s world AND in real life. Undertale takes this concept and cranks it up a notch, leaving literally every single character\'s fate in your hands. You can go for a pacifist run and kill no one, and this is the one I would
highly recommend going for if you do decide to purchase this masterpiece. There\'s also the neutral ending, which is the most common of the bunch but has one of the most creative final bosses I\'ve ever seen in video games. I won\'t spoil much, but it will BLOW your mind, you can trust me on that. There\'s also the genocide run, which is incredibly difficult to pull off because of how emotionally difficult it is to actually kill this lovable cast of monsters. The combat itself is like Earthbound\'s, as said earlier. This being said, Undertale takes yet another step forward, adding bullet hell and platforming to the mix and blends the two perfectly, making the game far more exciting, while keeping the original RPG elements.
This is the very core of why Undertale is such an unforgettable experience. Of course, though, you shouldn\'t be shocked at this point, because most of the internet will agree with me on that. The cast of characters is so diverse and unique, each one having traits to make them likable or the one you\'d love to kill on a genocide run. For example, you have Sans, my favorite of the bunch. He\'s a laid back, prankster, and easy going skeleton who has a brother named Papyrus. What Papyrus lacks in intelligence, he makes up for with a big heart for humans. You also have Flowey, who immediately will creep you out because of how ruthless he is. As for the plot itself, it\'s one big emotional rollercoaster you would want to ride over and over and over again. It has its hilarious moments, since the writing is surprisingly well done, while it has its sad moments, too. What takes the cake on all of this, though, is that it literally makes you rethink everything you knew about video games. The fourth wall is also broken often, and this is done in the most clever and creative ways. It\'s like Kid Icarus: Uprising, except Undertale does it far better. I almost forgot, too, but every action in this game will be remembered by the characters, long after you actually beat it. People have called this game a "sentient being" and I can actually agree with them on that. Trust me, Undertale is literally perfect for storytelling, and I won\'t be shocked if you cried a bit. It\'s hard not to, and with such a unique cast of lovable characters, it further justifies my point.
I have a friend who also loves Undertale, and the one thing he seems to point out about it is the soundtrack. I can\'t blame him, because it\'s really catchy. Remember how I said this game was my Shovel Knight of 2015? I wasn\'t kidding about that, it has the awesome soundtrack to go with it. You have Bonetrousle, the sinister, yet lighthearted and catchy tune that fits Papyrus. There\'s the Spider Dance, Muffet\'s theme. This theme is a lot more evil but far more catchy, and is one of my personal favorites. The king of the bunch, however, is one that didn\'t directly originate from Undertale: Megalovania. Sans\' theme is slowly becoming an iconic boss theme, as it has been used in two different times in the past, and this variation is definitely my favorite of the three. You also have some humorous songs, namely the Dogsong. I won\'t get too in-depth with that one, but I need to say this now: GEEEET DUNKED ON! There is no voice acting, but why does that even matter? This game doesn\'t need it. Overall, this game has some high quality music, and I love it that way.
As I said earlier, this game has multiple endings. Want to know what makes it interesting, though? The characters will remember EVERYTHING you\'ve done. I mean that, too. Mess with the game\'s files and try to beat it that way, I dare you. With the multiple endings, the replayability is far more dependent on you. If you have no soul, you\'ll probably try and do a genocide run while doing the other two runs as well. Maybe you\'ll try and do a pacifist one so you don\'t have to go through the pain of killing anyone, then do a neutral, and finish with a genocide ending. Just remember, EVERY choice will be remembered permanently.
Undertale is easily my GotY at this point in time, but it\'s also one of the most creative games I\'ve ever seen. This is an absolute masterpiece, and I really hope it wins a LOT of awards. Do I recommend this game? Well, I\'ll join the internet on this one and say, "Of course!" Just be ready to stock up on spaghetti, because you\'ll need it while you stress-eat and do a playthrough of this gem.
+Breaks the fourth wall in extremely creative ways
+Emotionally powerful and also mind blowing storyline
+Adds platforming and bullet hell gameplay with turn based combat

A near perfect 9.999999/10. The only way it could\'ve been better is if it never ended.
A relatively simple combat system, with an interesting dodging mechanic tied to a - at first glance - no more than easy to make art style may leave passerbys assuming this is yet another half-baked indie game, but it is so much more than that.
Having beaten one of the relatively short 10 hour playthroughs, the game had left me yearning for more. I haven\'t played a game that has impacted me in such a way in a long time, and even fewer games have made me feel bad for even thinking about taking the easier and shorter route.
From Toriel the "goat mom" to sans and Papyrus\' infamous bad jokes, Toby Fox has created memorable characters that feel more alive than just pixels on a screen. A certain flower, lesser dogs and an angry fish girl; they each react differently to your decisions and actions, which are permanent and have a lasting effect on the world you inhabit in the game. Morals are a large part of the story, and at some point, you have to make a choice.
Whatever you do - whether you have an inkling of empathy or not - play this game. I am certain you will enjoy it.
