I see it's pretty popular on tumblr, but /v/ hates it. I haven't played it, but i'm considering it.

/v/ hates everything though so I don't think that counts.

The first I'd ever heard of this game was you (Rose) mentioning it. Since then, I've heard some small level of discussion about it at least one more place -- the Jimquisition, perhaps? And that's it.

Well its picking up some amount of steam on youtube and tumblr, its basically becoming cave story 2.0 in that not a lot of people knew or cared when it was released but word of mouth on the quality is spreading at a decent pace.

I heard about it through the Steven Universe reddit, I am considering playing it but the minigame system looks rather weird and I'm not sure if the graphics land on the Cave Story side of stylized or are a bit too Game&Watch-era.

Considering the choice of colours used, the style the game goes for and the writing as well as some inspirations here and there its essentially a spiritual mother (earthbound for those who dont know) game so like with those games on the graphics YMMV

I liked Mother 3 on the GameBoy (well, more accurately, my GameBoy Advance emulator) and I liked Earthbound too, although what I've seen of Undertale in trailers seems to vary between roughly the same and much cruder. That said, if the game's plot is decent (and I have heard it is) I'll give it a shot when I have some cash.

I also enjoy the fact that the game's creator doesn't seem to be afraid to laugh at his creation, if the Steam page is anything to go by.

On a related note, what's the combat like? I saw a bit of the 'spare everyone' action in the trailer, but surely it can't be as easy as simply pressing a button to end combat?

Never heard of it. Never saw it mentioned in any other site or forum.

Also next time post some more info about the game (gameplay, platforms) or at least a link.

Yeah yeah i know. Google it and such but this doesn't mean the OP shouldn't be more informative.

@Shinoyami65

Well you can choose how you play, you want to grind it out like a standard rpg you can, you want to spare the enemies instead you can, generally a "pacifist" run is much harder because you will be lv 1 the entire game, luckily nothing in this game hits that hard that its a problem.

Sparing enemies can be done a number of ways for some enemies you can just beat them up till low health then spare them, this wont work for every enemy mind with is why the "act" command exists (and honestly using said command over just beating some enemies up is both more satisfying and more rewarding in the long run), this command lets you choose from several actions by which to calm down/please the enemy you are fighting during your turn though during the enemies turn you still have to avoid attacks.

The fights in this game are actually really fun though since i never did a no mercy run i don't know how much some of the fights differ there except for one that leads to a very bad time.
Though the highlight of this game for me would be the writing and characters, its very charming and I found myself caring more about these guys made on a simple budget than most celebrity voice acted AAA characters that try to hard to make you care.

Also i edited in the jimquisition review to the first post because its one of the best ones i have read.

Maybe i'll give it a shot just for this. I always appreciate a game with interesting characters and writing.

So Undertale has now topped MGSV for highest scored game this year.
I personally don't like MGSV as much as others so I'm a bit biased but seeing this fills me with...determination:

Cool. Nice to see this game getting the recognition it deserves.

So this game is slowly getting into portal 1 levels of overhyped.
This game is a 9.5/10 for me and as an experience? something i cant replace buuuuuut....
When a game, any game gets over-hyped people shit on it and other people go in with ludicrous expectations and then get dissapointed when its not literally the greatest game to ever exist ever.

So if you have friends you want to play this game please just say its good and don't over-hype it.
(And yes i have been selling this game to people for a while but that was back when it was still relatively unknown, now everybody is lets playing it and i don't need to any-more)

I'm too old to spend time recommending games on the net, unless it's our own thread or something.


Also I have no clue on how to align the 4 flowers. halp:c

facepalm, for some reason I thought they went only one way.

I think I suck at this game because I was too busy with undyne's attacks to figure out different ways to fight her, all I got was a "she thinks of a friend the attacks become less extreme". Damn it alphys stop updating your stuff:/

To be fair, both games seem to bring something very new to the table (the portal gun and the sparing mechanic, respectively) so I'm not really surprised; I just hope it doesn't hurt the reputation of the sequel when one is released (although I still prefer Portal 2 to Portal because of the multiplayer, longer story, and Cave Johnson).
