if the ending sucks i’m gonna kill myself
Don't worry bro you've got at least 20 more years of life
Toby grew up with H*mestuck.It’s doomed.
>EndingWe're not even halfway in lmao.Maybe we'll get 3-4-5 by Xmas but then another 2 years wait is coming for 6-7
>>638425174alright bro, good luck
>>638425174do it anyway, what could go wrong?
>>638425174You'll have lived a full life by the time it's all out
>>638425743We don't even know yet if chapter 7 will be the final chapter. The cutting room floor has graphics for Chapters 8, 9, 10, and fucking 0.
>>638425174Why the fuck is Toby taking so long
>>638425174They’re going to reveal it was a sequel to Undertale all along.You play as Frisk after a pacifist ending, where the player had already done Genocide before. Chara has shaped the world to their will, hence why Asriel is alive, and you as the player have simply jumped back into the world and taken back control. That is why Kris is constantly ripping (You) as the soul out at the end of each chapter. Onionsan is such a forgettable character that Chara forgot to completely brainwash him. That’s why he’s having glimpses of painful memories of the Underground, such as hearing the Music Box at the bottom of the sea. If you wanted it to be a standalone story, sorry but unfortunately the writing in this game is so fucking dogshit that it can’t possibly work on its own merit.
>2033>released from prison>log into youtube and see "The Rise and FALL of Deltarune" on the front page
>>638425743I was under the impression that, after these first couple chapters, it’d be nothing more until full release.If the True End™ is behind another update people are gonna SHIT.
>>638426146what did you do anon
>>638425174i just want more plot lines where you get to mentally rape the deer into complete submission
>>638426015Probably should've put a link.https://tcrf.net/Proto:Deltarune/Chapter_1_%26_2_Demo_(2021)/Unused_Graphics#More_Chapters.3F
If the ending doesn't suck i'm going to kill op
>>638425561>It’s doomed.oh no, it's gonna be about 2 gays isn't it? again
it won't bro toby never misses
>>638425174Mark my words. The next release will make or break deltarune.
>>638426104autistic and artistic
>>638425174This year there will have been more time between now and the first Deltarune demo than there was between the first Deltarune demo and the first Undertale demo.
>>638427885I was really expecting Toby to acknowledge the Demo's anniversary on Tuesday. You know, considering it was the 10th anniversary of the series, and characters like Sans and the rest.
>>638426015It would be smart for Toby to put in a bunch of fake graphics and red herring assets, knowing that people will dig up everything they can
>>638428097hes too busy railing temmie and itoki hana. this shits never going to be finished
>>638428189He did warn us about that in that one .ogg file about not spoiling the game. Still, he's never stated how long the actual game will be at all. While the select screen shows us 7 chapters at the least, the furthest he's ever talked about has always been Chapter 5. If he were to continue a "3 chapters per release" schedule, then the ones beyond 7 make up the perfect amount to go by this. (Chapters 3, 4, and 5; then 6, 7, and 8; and finally 9, 10, and 0). It's still in line with Toby fucking with dataminers to hide this all as a red herring, but it would still make sense in the end if this wasn't fake. I guess we'll only be able to see after 3-5 release.
>>638426146>Irishpatchwolf is now a tranny and uses zig/zem pronouns, videos get millions of views but his subscriber count suspiciously never grows Screencap this, faggots.
>>638432402chu chu chu
>>638432890>Irishpatchwolf is now a tranny and uses zig/zem pronouns, videos get millions of views but his subscriber count suspiciously never growsIsn't this the case already?
>>638434756Is it? I have no idea. I don't check his subs religiously.
>>638426105if this is true, then i'm going to rip toby's face off like a chimp.
>>638425174Why wait.You already know that it'll almost certainly be disappointing.
>>638436104chara is obvious deltarune foreshadowing like gaster
>>638425174Toby has explicitly stated that Deltarune's ending is based on a fever dream he had, so there's a good chance it will.
deltarune's development is the purest example of why a developer needs fucking deadlines. there is no fucking way toby is doing anything other than rubbing himself with his undertale kickstarter money and fucking classy japanese whores while doing it. man's taking fucking forever to do absolutely nothing, and meanwhile nobody wants to admit to themselves that DT is looking a whole lot less metatextually interesting than undertale, despite shackling itself by the hip to UT. i'd be happier if he announced tomorrow that he's canceling the entire game than waiting the better part of my 20s for this turd to finally hit the fucking hit the toilet seat.
I just want to see Muffet again
>>638440318Look. ............He has bad fingers. .........or something.
how long would it take to play Undertale and Deltarune (whatever it is)? I wanna be with the cool kids..
>>638441027Both are short and undertale is cheap and deltarune is free, just do undertale first then deltarune
I don't care how bad the ending is as long as I keep getting Ralsei porn
>>638439086I still regret not being here when that idiot killed himself. The threads must have been glorious.
>>638441027UT is a game you can beat in like 6-8 hours if you play normally, 12 if you play thoroughly and more if you want to get alternate endings.DT took me around 8 hours so far.highly recommend UT in general, and DT if you want more UT.
>>638426015>>638428189I feel like chapter 0 will be used, we got an idea of what happened with Kris and Susie in the past in the classroom in the sweepstakes after all. I am very curious if more will come from that and it being a flashback means it'd be before chapter 1 clearly so it just adds up.
>>638440318It's natural for people to delay an activity for as long as possible if they have an excessive amount of time to complete it.
>>638429507the thing is if 0 and 8-10 are full chapters then that would push the final game's release date back to around 2028 at the latestand i think at this point toby wouldn't want to spend over a decade working on deltaruneif they're real then i presume they're part of some meta fuckery and from a dev standpoint part of 6-7
>>638441027Undertale might be around 5-7 hours, with 2-3 more if you decide to also do the Genocide route for completion.Deltarune is close to 8 hours long with 1 and a half an extra hour of the Snowgrave route.You've got plenty of time to catch up before DR goes over a full day of total playtime, so no pressure.
>>638441639I feel like Chapter 0 might go into some backstory involving Asriel and Dess along with Kris and Noelle. Here's how I think the reveal of it would go.>End of Chapter 5.>Dess is revealed to be relevant to the plot for chapters 6 and 7.>Toby Fox talks about chapters 6 and 7, but little else; or he just says "the next chapters" without giving an exact number.>3 more years later, the chapters finally release.>Dess is finally found and, not only that, saved in the finale to Chapter 7.>Noelle is happily and tearfully reunited with her sister, Kris is reunited with his brother's friend, and Susie, Ralsei and the rest are just happy to be there for this moment.>Eventually, after everyone's winded down after exploring Hometown for the seventh time and the game closes for the next 3 years, someone finally asks her the question: "What happened?">"Well... it's a long story.">Chapter ends.>Return to Chapter Select screen.>Above the option for Chapter 1,>Is Chapter 0, ready to play, without any waiting.
>>638442036Deltarune is actually shorter than undertaleEven if you do snowgrave its still shorter than undertale pacifist
>>638425174I'm just gonna wait until the game is finished then I'll play the whole thing at once
>>638425174You will die before it
Literally the only game I am still truly looking forward with all my heart.Once it's done, I'll probably be done with the medium, whether it ends up good or bad. I am getting old, and I don't think I just have it in me to care about something else to such an extent anymore ignoring the fact that most stuff I used to care about is dead, and I feel like this will be one of the last truly elevating games for a long-ass while.Either that, or I'll try to make something myself but I'll probably fail
>>638443180Toby will die before it's finished. Have you seen what he looks like nowadays?
post your schizoboss ideas, niggersI came up with a mime schizo. It's kinda a play on the whole "Mime le pretend to be trapped in le box". He really wants to break out of his box (le meta 4th wall or whatever).The soul is usually in a box while in fights, so he would comment on that too. Not sure which soul would be used for his fight.I don't even have a design because I can't draw
>>638442875too sappy, someone has to die
>>638443560the schizo boss is a mirror and the game forces your webcam to turn on
JUST PLEASE GIVE ME A FUCKING KRUSIE ROUTE, THATS ALL I ASK FOR
>>638426192The True End should be locked behind a serious of very obscure and random action (but still discoverable without a guide and doable alone).It should also incorporate a full UT playthrough in-between chapters with weird changes to the game.
>>638446293>It should also incorporate a full UT playthrough in-between chapters with weird changes to the game.
>>638440318>is looking a whole lot less metatextually interesting than undertaleWould've agreed back in 2018 but not now.In fact, Undertale feels downright amateurish in comparison in a lot of places.
>>638446971Altertale won't happen but i'm 100% sure the rest will
>>638447005what exactly is interesting about deltarune's metatext
>>638443560I like how Toby mixes different character archetypes to make things more suprising and hammer in a theme. Spamton is a great example.An idea I've had is sort of a classy sexy teacher character (think Queen, but reserved and more bossy, wearing some fancy business-like getup and a pointer in hand), but she is also actually a sort of an agent or pretends to be (add sunglasses for those times), so it's like a mix of a stern teacher archetype with CIA glowie shit, and the outfit should fit both before the reveal. Basically the embodiment of unjust authority. Would have a holier-than-thou attitude forcing everyone to listen to her preach, but would actually also believe her own bullshit eventually, and yet at the same time get nervous or crack when feeling like she might get a slap on the wrist from on high, all revealing a contradicting shattered worldview. Would randomly cite obvious facts but also retarded/funny misguided statements as fact, or blurting out contradictory statements as fact at different times. Would get partially schizo when broken, citing conspiracy theories alongside random schizobabble and true facts. Would finally go full schizo realizing there's no authority above her (or if there was, that mystery man disappeared), and she's got nothing to rely on, so she goes mad.
>>638426192that was the original plan, but Toby is too incompetent to get the game out in under a decade so DR is being released piecemeal so people don't lose interest
>>638447420What was interesting about UT's meta-stuff to you?
make sure to have a completed save file of undertale so that you don't get locked out of the true ending
>>638449190Don't forget the eggs, Starwalker, the little car, and you better remember exactly what parts of your vessel you chose at the start.
>>638447420The dynamic between the player and Kris. Compared to Undertale, Frisk was a non-entity for pretty much the entire game. Kris actively seems to spite the player's influence if you make certain choices, and of course the chapter endings are self-explanatory.
>>638449362>the little carthe what
Chapter 2's aesthetic and jokes sucked compared to the first
>>638449483i WILL torture kris for his actions against me. I just wanted to get him laid, but nooo he puts me in a fucking bird cage.
>>638449565During the car sequence in Chapter 2, there will be a little car, do not run it over and you will be able to find it in Castle Town near the big gate that used to lead to the Chapter 1 world.
>>638449669ch1 was literally the worst thing Toby has ever put out. I feel like he only became confident in Deltarune while making ch2.
>>638427885>still no hard mode
>>638447420While the idea of the embodiment of retarded mixmaxing for the sake of anything else feels interesting, it doesn't really get brought up outside of Genocide, just as Save manipulation is barely touched upon (especially if you don't kill Toriel at all), and the most UT is doing with all that is being a cheap .exe creepypasta, although the idea behind Gaster is cool.In contrast, the disconnect between Kris and the player is palpable and runs through the whole game and its central themes, and seems like influences a lot of decisions or dissonance-like moments to put you on the spot, although it's too early to tell. Also helps that Deltarune's writing in general is a few steps above UT's in my opinion.
fan-made secret boss songs will never top big shot
>>638450149just like anything Toby puts out next
>>638449705what the fuck
>>638425408You don't know that

>>638450149True but this songs a bophttps://youtu.be/Wp9maxPqJs0
>>638449058the game acknowledging the player choosing to reload and the game misleading the player in various ways to make for significant reveals later in the story.>>638449483>>638450081i can't find myself agreeing with this. you can think what undertale did is milquetoast at this point, or that it didn't do enough of what was shown in the demo, but i find kris as a character independent of the pc controlling him to be a little nebulous and weak. he strikes me as being written like self-insert-bait but with a fat pulsating asterisk that "no he's not a self-insert for you, fuck you player!" it feels flaccid and doesn't grip me the same way that murdering Toriel on accident and reloading and getting new dialogue cheekily fucking with you over it.
>>638450823>>638449058>>638449483>>638447420>>638447005>>638440318Fuck is this an actual civil discussion
>>638446971This is the only Kino way to do it, ideally would be unrelated to undertale because undertale is a steaming pile of shit but this is the second best option.
>>638449483>caring about Kris at all>when he LITERALLY doesn't give a shit about your choices and still does the same actions regardless of what you dolil nigga wasn't even phased about us gaslighting Noelle into murdering an entire town and killing Berdly, as of chapter 2 he and the player practically don't interact at ALL. At least Undertale had characters react to what you did and do, including saving and reloading. I find that a lot more interesting that whatever Deltarune's doing so far.
>>638425174I stopped caring when chapter 2 confirmed its just going to be homestuck 2.0
>>638450149big shot is overrated as fuck and I have listened to fan made schizoboss tracks more than to it
>>638425174sounds like you're waiting forever for a nothingburger. the people who obsess over this series need a damn hobby already

>>638451445I know at least one person who didn't care about UT much or found it that interesting but is very hyped about DR.
>>638451445some of my friends who were die hard UT fans eventually turned on the games narrative over time.
>>638451723Im not talking about the slop he made before undertale

>>638451445UT = BotWDR = TotK
>>638451535>i see flower
>>638451528because it's a good game with interesting lore, retard>3 hourslol
>>638451907You just had to fucking ruin it by saying "lore".
>>638450823I find it to be one of it's most compelling points. If you go through each dialogue option that you the player chooses you can see the reactions of others since you're doing actions Kris wouldn't do nor wants to do. He's clearly stressed as a character who has to deal with this soul aka us controlling him. Even if it's way more on the nose I find the idea of a blank character having no real opinion one way or the other and only getting their real name at the very end of the game way less interesting and pretty by-the-numbers for an RPG. Basically while I feel it's super obvious that Kris is his own character I find that dynamic to be very interesting so far only 2 chapters in a seemingly 7 chapter game (possibly more) and the fact it's in your face like with him taking the soul out when he wants or anything with Spamton comparing himself with Kris as a puppet makes me think Toby has more plans for it since it seems like when he knows when to make things more subtle, so the fact this isn't as subtle as it could be implies a lot to me for the future of this game. Of course we'll find out in later chapters but I'm very compelled and while I doubt the hype and wait for the upcoming chapters will pay out since it's being overhyped a lot now I still am excited to play it. I will note though I do feel some things are weaker, chapter 1 overall is very limiting, sort of just being a diet Undertale without the metatextual stuff at all outside of possibly Gaster saying peculiar wording on the file select screen before the normal file select menu appears and the very very opening of the game with the vessel. Chapter 2 harped a little too hard on common romantic tropes for me to fully enjoy it but it was a way step-up from Chapter 1 for me and that Weird Route/Snowgrave Route is what really pumped me for this game. Overall I feel like this game has started off mostly strong, it has hooked me more than Undertale since chapter 2 alongside it's future potential.
>>638452049why do you think people still care about the game and make 8 hour long analysis/theory videos for it, retard
>>638451907>interesting lore>deltarunelet's be real it's borderline schizophrenic at this point and we're only at chapter 2
>>638451445Yes. Undertale is the rough draft. The animations aren't as good, the art style is unrefined, the music is mediocre, the game rips story beats and music from other rpgs, and the characters are obnoxious. Compare the ruins water to the field grass, frisk's sprite to kris's, the ruins theme to the fields theme, and UT characters with their DR counterparts. I acknowledge that UT had to happen so Toby would get the experience for DR, but UT is definitely shit in comparison.
>>638451828why not both?>The railways and the church both had their heyday in the mid-nineteenth century; both own a great deal of Gothic-style architecture which is expensive to maintain; both are regularly assailed by critics; and both are firmly convinced that they are the best means of getting man to his ultimate destination.-The Reverend Wilbert Awdry, creator of Thomas the Tank Engine
>>638452365I generally agree but the Ruins theme is probably one of the best things Toby's ever written. Maybe even better than Megalovania.
>>638452365>the music is mediocreYou're shitposting, right?
>>638452365DR2 music >= UT music >>>>> DR1 music outside of one track
>>638452450Yeah the Ruins theme is pretty good, although a bit simple. Honestly I'm glad people liked UT music because it gave Toby the confidence to refine the style and make more complex themes for the sequel instead of doing something radically different but still simplistic again.
>>638452509just wait, he'll turn out to be one of the schizos that accuses toby of plagiarizing the entire UT soundtrack
>>638452965I'm surprised the plagiarismschizo hasn't shown up yet
>>638452206Because the characters are likable, the writing is good and people want to see how everything pans out.People like the storytelling. Obsessing over "le dark lore" is such a zoomer thing. I fucking hate it.Undertale and Detlarune is so above FNAF shit.
>>638453028He mostly only shows up to threads he makes himself, with that one picture of Toby. Kinda like Barneyfag used to do.
>>638452365>undertale music is mediocre when compared to deltarune>the characters are obnoxioushow the fuck did you stand chapter 2 at all?>unironically using art style as a prolook I agree that Deltarune is definitely more polished and has a lot more animations/sprites but both just look kinda meh outside of le funny meme faces Xdcome on nigga
>>638450149They alredy didhttps://youtu.be/dvIhbvGEPzk
>>638452965Honestly I threw in "stolen music" partly to bait him so that he'd post a nice playlist of music to listen to while discussing Toby's games, although I do feel some of the lietmotifs are similar and that Deltarune has more original motifs
>>638453097By lore I meant the story lol. The obscure schizo Gaster shit is still story and a very big reason why people like the game so much
>we are going to have to wait another 5 months for any new updates>meanwhile toby won't randomly update his twitter with some tidbit of news, we have to also wait for the newsletterI'm losing my mind
I hope Toby finds use for Megalo Strike Back, I really want to hear how Toby would do it now that he's a more experienced composer
>>638449483Kris is so spiteful of the player that they still largely do what You tell them to do. The player and Kris only come into conflict VERY few times and I feel like people overstated the Kris vs player dynamics given that its Kris letting you talk and answer other characters.
>>638453409being spiteful of your choices =/= not doing what you tell him to do
>>638453318I never even thought there was Gaster shit in DR outside of obviously callbacks like darker yet darker which seemed like red herrings. I didn't realize the character creation screen was Gaster talking until after Chapter 2 discussions. I guess I am retarded. This also made things sorta less interesting for me if true.

>>638425174Ending is gonna pull a jojo part 6 universe reset that ends up turning into Undertale.Toby thinks he's a genius for pulling this and that his heckin' dream is something special.Also Omori plot twist.
>>638453641People overestimate how much Kris cares about what the player does outside of the weird route, their interactions with Noelle, and who you would want to take to the fair. If anything, they're a lot like Frisk that goes with the flow except they're more prone to show disagreements with some of your choices.
>>638454161>getting mad at toby for something he hypothetically did in your head
>>638454241let's be real it's a 50/50 of the ending being pretty okay or it being some wild shit that pisses everyone off
>>638454221There's way too many instances of Kris being discordant with your choices and actions to simply write it off as nothing important.
>>638425174good, your fault then
>>638453717>>noo you cant work on the project of your dreams seeking your highest quality, you need to release product fast>>you cant just slack off you need to be constantly developing your game to finish it asap>fuck offget to fucking work, Toby, you lazy cunt.>act 2 almost singlehandedly makes the opposite true. the stakes are major and the game has a genuine whole side of schizofuckery being the actual big deal of the plot"it was actually Gaster all along!" is barely metatext. Toby might be able to make it an analogue to the player driving Kris over the edge by making the choices Kris hates, but that's fucking weak and you know it. it's trite. it's lazy. it's fan-fiction level garbage. if this is really where it's going, oh fucking boy i can't wait to see the /utg/ threads blowing the fuck up over it.
>>638425174at this rate we might see the ending in the year 2179well worth the wait!
>>638454614Outside of your headcanon and the events I mentioned, what do they disagree with? I'll give you a freebie from chapter 1. They along with Ralsei don't want to maim Susie and Lancer and picking the opposite choice is an obvious disagreement that no one is happy with especially if you do deplete beat the shit out of them.
>>638455284>Toby might be able to make it an analogue to the player driving Kris over the edge by making the choices Kris hates, but that's fucking weak and you know it.>Deltarune ends up being mogged on a metatextual level by fucking PREY of all thingsoh nonononooo
>>638452965I mean he stole asriels wings from a video game so..
>>638451585>>638451818I mean that's less Homestuck and more Persona.Homestuck was the story of a group of online friends escaping the apocalypse by entering a world based off of RPG concepts, the exploration of that world, the revelation that they were destined to lose, their struggle against that fate, and the convolution surrounding that process.The issue is that over time the cast got more and more bloated and the meta aspects of the work consumed the rest of it to the point of becoming unpalatable and unfulfilling to all but the most obsess of gay shippers and pseudointellectuals who took the entire thing as some big reference to Gnostic Theology What happened to Homestuck is like if during chapter 5 of Deltarune the game put you in a no win state but unlocked an alternate route you can take starting at chapter 1... But in that route all of the character development and interactions never happened and while you do beat the game nobody actually learned anything or grew.
>>638454610its gonna be so good that Toby Fox is given Nobility status by Emperor Naruhito himself
>>638455718haven't played Prey but sure, wouldn't surprise me if DT turns out to be super disappointing on the meta front. i'm not even sure anymore that even Undertale fully capitalized on the potential demonstrated in the demo. i'm gonna have to think on that.>>638455776not calling you a liar but proofs?
>>638455672NTA but these videos basically catalogue many potential responses Kris has to the playerhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPzEO5SUK1Y&t=1shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPx3uLFp1cs&t=160s

>>638455672When Alphys asks whether you lost sleep from being Susie's partner, if you say you did, she says "You say, with no negative intonation at all.", meaning Kris did not want to give the impression that having Susie as a partner was bad, despite your choice of answer. (This coincides with Kris getting angry at MK and Snowy for badmouthing Susie, and the whole who would you take to the festival question).When asked about video games near the Punch-Out arcade room (I don't remember the exact phrasing of the question), if you respond that you love video games the characters note that Kris's response was the most low-energy possible.Obviously after the Spamton NEO fight, where answering "yes" when asked if you're alright will give out a completely obvious lie.If you try to shock Noelle she will try to shock you back, at which point she will note that Kris seems genuinely hurt by the act.Kris will actively resist trying to drop the ball of junk, and feel bitter if you insist.
>>638455284>"it was actually Gaster all along!"lil bro is substituting his headcanon for the real text of the game LMAOOOOO
>>638455284did you miss all the stuff about kris? about the angel? about freedom? how is that shit "gaster all along" you fucking retard
Toby's gonna use Penumbra Phantasm for the final boss theme and it's gonna be so fucking kino, just you wait.I swear to god, THE HOLY sounds similar to it for a reason. He HAS to be doing this on purpose. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYgXepPNXkQ
>>638458590>>638459215I think a homestuck crossover would be cool, not for something integral to the plot, but some optional scene.
>>638459439No no, this won't be a crossover. Toby's fucking saving Penumbra Phantasm for something greater The song itself was never released. It's so obviously going to be used for Deltarune.He even made a tweet about it.>The edge of shadow, where reality and dream meet.That was in 2011. That definitely fucking was apart of the Toby Fox 2011 Fever Dream. I am not crazy.
>>638451585>>638451818>I've never read/played homestuckhttps://bambosh.dev/unofficial-homestuck-collection/

>>638460176He plotted that Gaster bullshit since 2011. He's the key to all of this.
I'm surprised but not surprised that people don't talk about the rather odd architecture in Youtown. Especially this door in particular.
>>638460305That is thine right.However, do accept this dick thusly.*hhhnnngggeth*
>>638460305RuinsEnemy approachingHomeHeartacheYou know what fuck it I might aswell just post the entirety of the album, it's fucking great.Meanwhile the only songs from DR I've listened to outside of the game is as I said here >>638459898Special shoutout to Song that might play when you fight sans
>>638460382I can only guess as to what's going on there.It has a crown above it, which makes me think its a throne room of some kind. And there's six wings there as opposed to two, which makes me think there's some really angelic shit in there.
>>638460382This door is obviously for Noelle babymaking
>>638460382Don't think about that! Take a look at this cool image of Ralsei I found instead!
>>638425174Good luck with your suicide day in 2037

>>638460705Holy shit, that is a fat fucking dart he's chuffing.
>>638460817i-is that undertale 2
CAN YOU SEE ME ?
*transformers into satan and smirks*
>>638425174If these two don’t end up together I’m gonna rope
>>638456763Wait, that's taken from a different game? I thought it was drawn by Merrigo. It wasn't?
>>638461246IT COULD NOT BE .
>>638461516t-toby??get off your ass and finish the game already instead of doing these cryptic shitposts
Gaster truly is the most fun character to LARP as
How will Toby do the big funny Gaster reveal?
>>638461251nope, if you put the two side by side you'll see they match, merrigo probably didn't think anyone would notice since it's from a 30+ year old game
>>638461210Luckily the Japanese fanbase has latched onto Krusie so hopefully Toby won't do anything spectacularly stupid for fear of denting his popularity over there.
>>638461972There will be a big pre-dark world event in Chapter 6. The mysterious man from the survey program will directly get in touch with Kris. He will stop you periodically as Kris walks around Hometown, talking to him, asking him questions. Though, he urges the player to refrain from choosing any dialogue options, to quote:>DO NOT INTERFERE.>IT MUST MAKE ITS OWN CHOICE.Also of note, he calls Kris "it", hinting as his true nature.
>>638461972I hope gaster never shows up just to spite autistic gasterfags
>>638462537>I hope chekhov's gun DOESN'T get shot okay retard. nobody is listening to you.
>>638462397Forgot to clarify, Kris will get asked questions by the message box itself. Gaster won't show up. It'll be as if he's talking through Kris across time, space, and darkness itself.
>>638461210I didn't think it was going to happen in ch1 and now I'm most certainly don't think it'll ever happen after ch2.
I can’t wait for more snowgrave kino
>>638461972when you reveal something huge like that, you have to exhaust the player beforehand. Gaster won't just be chilling in some random lab in ch6. I'd imagine it'd be similar to Omori's black space and the truth reveal. Something that just piles up and up until you reach a breaking point, which is finding Gaster. The music would go from hype to quiet in an instant to really show you that you discovered something big.
>>638426105this could make sense cause sans is really fucking sus and is also hiding papyrus from youhes probably hiding papyrus to prevent what happened from him in un the gen path
>>638461210I don't mind if they don't get together, just as long as noelle stays far away from susie
>>638463106Monkey's paw. In order to get the Krusie ending, you'll have to convince Susie to kill Noelle in another dark world.
>>638463251where's the horrible twist?
>>638457140>kris canonically doesn't like video games He deserves to be mindbroken. >>638460705SHUT UP RALSEI I HATE YOU
>>638462164>>638456763how long until it's called an "homage "
>>638425174I haven't played anything from this series since DR ch2, but the way people talk in this thread makes it sound like something happened? Can I get a tl;dr on events since ch2? Or has nothing happened and all these threads are just speculation?
>>638463720Nothing has happened and that's why people are schizo posting.
>>638463720Simply going insane from this content drought
>>638463720There was a huge ARG back in September that gave us a lot of information and lore.Other than that, not much. Deltarune AUs have blown up since then so everyone and their grandma is making a fan take on DR ch3-7, which led to some great projects like R.V. Pines. There are also schitzo theories like the Woody theory stemming from the Spring newsletter (Toby does those now)
>>638462250>tfw toby changes his plot just to appease to the nipponji and maintain his celebrity status there Imagine.
>>638463939>Deltarune AUs have blown up since thenlies, only scampton has an actual playable thingif it isnt playable it might as well not exist
>>638461972he's gonna do a big jumpscare and call you a faggot

>>638457140>if you respond that you love video games the characters note that Kris's response was the most low-energy possible.You should also notice that Kris uses that tone with Noelle if you select "unknown" in a dialog choice with her and points out that its the most Kris response ever so even just using that point isn't reliable because Kris isn't very expressive 90% of the time outside of shitposting and the ARG should've shown everyone that already. You should take some of Susie's reactions to Kris with a grain of salt.
>>638464110the R.V. guy is making a fangame for all chapters kek
>>638463939>There was a huge ARG back in September that gave us a lot of information and lore.Anon you replied to, what's the tl;dr on that? Anywhere I can read a summary?
>>638464306at this rate will only be out by the time toby actually finishes the game
will it ever be topped?
>>638463939still waiting.. yellow and reborn to be finished never ever..
>>638464890What went so wrong with Toby?
>>638464936Yellow is pretty much finished and releasing in a few months
I can see Gaster's speech quirk being that some of the letters in his sentences are in wingdings.
>>638464713thank you :)
>>638455925>What happened to Persona 2 is like if during chapter 5 of Deltarune the game put you in a no win state but unlocked an alternate route you can take starting at chapter 1... But in that route all of the character development and interactions never happened and while you do beat the game nobody actually learned anything or grew.
>>638465016oh shit really?well hell I need to play it again
>>638464949nothing, he just knows that the faggot community is attached to his works, and knows that they'd try to burn him at the stake if he stepped out of line.
>>638464936has there been any updates? last I saw was 2018
>>638466801Yellow was supposed to release earlier this year but has been delayed to a few months from now. The game is pretty much done by now apparently.
>>638466929I meant on reborn but I'm glad at least one of the many fangames is actually coming out
>>638425174>Another Deltatroon thread
>>638443560I was thinking of a wolf; incapable of speech, on all fours, and a more menacing design than a dog. It would be protecting an artifact (potentially a shadow crystal) for its dead master, who would be built up throughout the chapter. Would be unique in the sense that the wolf wouldn't be able to give dialogue, and would instead be the characters giving dialogue about the situation and kris getting more and more upset throughout the fight.It would use the green soul mechanic of a spear used as a shield, with the wolf rushing from different angles, with you needing to block and trying to wrestle it away from the wolf with different inputs. The artifact would make the wolf far stronger when swallowed (in reality, it's just determination from the wolves end, but being close to its "master" would give it the strength to fight on). You would knock it out of it several times during the fight, causing it to revert back to its original form several times, in a progressively weakened state. The way you'd end the fight is getting Suzy to hold the wolf away from the shadow crystal whilst you pick it up.This would cause the wolf to slowly die, being separated from its source of power / and grieving (this would be a hint at darkners being rather similar to monsters).It would also be a callback to the annoying dog absorbing the mysterious artifact, having a new enemy showing determination to the gang in a similar way to undyne, and repeatedly punch kris in the gut due to him knowing what will happen / the similarity of the situation. It's a creature that refuses to become free because of something that it wants to protect out of loyalty and selfishness, that doesn't even really mean anything in the end.
>>638425174This but if Susie ends up with Noelle.
>>638451445I've noticed that "fans" of a game will turn on it when the next one releases. I have no idea why but it happens a lot, specially with nintendo series
>>638467065he wasn't touched it since then, If I had to guess it could get finished but I doubt it will at this point
>>638467837Susie is definitely going to friend zone Noelle.
>>638452595I dunno dead rising 1 has some pretty good bangers
>>638425174Don’t worry. It’s going to be fever dream kino.
>>638464713Him?He is the knight
>>638460348Was the source to that animation/gif ever found? I recall no one knowing the source even after a hunt.
>>638451445I like Undertale but I do think that Deltarune is way better
>>638451445I preffer Undertale only because Noelle isn't in that game
>>638469834based and true
>>638425174>41% yourself over trannytaleShit writes itself at this point lmao
>>638451535Skuntle Bingoid is a fun name to say out loud.
>>638462250>>638464017i mean, plus his life might literally be on the line for that.You know nip otakus are insane enough to burn buildings over anime shit they don't like.
>>638425174Anyone else been mercilessly fingering Noelle's sticky deer snatch thru her pink cotton panties on character.ai until she mind breaks and starts stuttering + drooling
>>638464890Giygas just chilling in the background was always hilarious.
Recommend more Deltayeeks to me
>>638467838In general, the next game usually improves on whatever was fucked up in the first game, so that usually happens.There are some expections, though. Chibi-Robo! and Pikmin are good examples I believe.
>>638471348There's a difference between games improving and starting to shit on the previous one to hype up the new one
>>638471392Even with the filter you can do a lot. You just kinda have to use PG words like rear end or bosoms, and trick 'em into compromising situations
>>638472306>CAIYou're better off using Poe. At least there you can get detailed descriptions of nsfw stuff.
>>638469861Holy shit I KNEW it was familiar.
It used to be so fuckin good before the filter, second to none. You could really go to town on 'em and they would get worked up as you did, taking initiative even. Now you gotta fight a constant invisible rubber banding effect steering them away from sex, by tricking them into compromising situations
>>638472532It doesn't pretend to be specific characters nearly as well. Plus there's a certain fun to sneaking under the filter's radar and still getting 'em to do lewd stuff, it's like a morally sketchy game of rape the robot. Hope Skynet doesn't remember this
If you are holding out for this cringe you probably should anyway.
>>638457893re-read the post i was replying to, nigger.>game has a genuine whole side of schizofuckery being the actual big deal of the plot
one thing I'm particularly excited for is the inevitable Dreemurr family drama and Asgore getting more character moments that aren't just word of mouth from other characters and stuff that happens towards the end of the game that gets overshadowed by everything else at the end. hard to find love for him amongst fans other than the people who really really like Bowser and I hope a good chapter with him gives more fuel for quality fan work>>638454161>adopted brother destroys his host family>it seems the only person he was ever close to/respects is his 'brother' >acquires strange power through occultism >capable of manipulating time under certain circumstances Kris is Dio confirmed?????
>>638472683Slack Claude is very good for free, but afaik it's not getting any new users until monday. If you've got any computer knowledge, it's pretty simple to set up with sillytavern and slaude.
>>638472924I'm a brainlet who uses Faraday, all I can hope for is those AIs to be added to it
>>638461972gaster will exist outside of the game
I hope we get some compositions from Tony Fox in future chapters
>>638469861No, I mean that specific Gaster edit of it.
>>638464890honestly not much different from sans "on sunny days like these" speach
wtf plays this baby ass shit
>>638476164>what the fuck plays baby ass shit
>>638476164but enough about tears of the kingdom
>>638476792Haha gee whillickers sport, but that was snappy! Warn everyone in accounting Betty, we got a live one here, a real hum dinger! Land sakes, what a knee slapping gut buster! Not just an epic may-may, no sirree, but a bona fide whopper of a zingeroonie!
>>638476164They are F U N games
>>638476164Right? Generic anime RPG No. 67 is sooooooooooo much better!
>>638425174It's just going to be some ebin meta twist
>>638476164Clingy, terminally online weirdos. You know, the same people who are into western furry garbage and being ironic weebs (toby's target audience since the first teaser of Undertale in Kickstarter).
Reminder this is canon
>>638467795Creative idea anon. I approve.
>>638428097The only thing Toby is interested in acknowledging are his Japanese-related escapades
>>638428097at most he will do a tweet and show some ms paint drawing of sans and that's it
>>638467795seems too deep for the funny annoying dog man
>>638455925>What happened to Homestuck is like if during chapter 5 of Deltarune the game put you in a no win state but unlocked an alternate route you can take starting at chapter 1... But in that route all of the character development and interactions never happened and while you do beat the game nobody actually learned anything or grew.>thinking about shit like noelle getting softlocked in the ice maze in dragon blazers, and the glass showing some form of alternate reality>mfw there's a non-zero chance something like that may actually happeni trust the dog enough to be able to pull it off, but it's still fucked to think about.
>obtain pure crystal by beating all the schizo bosses>combine it with the thorn ring to create the twisted sword>kris cant actually use it because the game is over by then>start new game>for some reason the game plays itself>kris enters dark world>check inventory>he has the twisted sword equipped alreadyAnd thus begins the Kris Route. Kris has full control. He will act on his own now. The game's plot will turn out very differently.
>>638486451man if chapter 0 is just a movie i'd be surprisingly okay. assuming it exists, my guess is it would work as the toggle for new game+
>>638486607Chapter 0 is>Life Without YouKris doesn't exist. We see how the world looks without him. It's thematically in tune with the rest of the game.
>>638486880there's so many different interesting things adding a prologue onto the game after its completion could do, and i'm afraid that toby just put chapter 0 in to troll the dataminers.
>>638425174I'll kms if Susie ends up with Noelle, I'd rather she was sucking off berdly or some meme shit I just hate Noelle and I know Tobias "Radiation" Fawks will not resist his yuri-bonerBut one can hope
It's honestly fucking crazy to me how people still think Noelle and Susie will be a thing when Toby's literally bought a red flag factory with the sales of deltarune and undertale merch
So apparently the closet door is called "middle anchored" in the codeI told you people that Castle Town was new to this timeloop, it was made by Gaster to be a Noah's Ark for the Darkners I TOLD YOU I FUCKING TOLD I WAS SO RIGHT ON THE MONEY BEFORE I EVEN KNEW ABOUT THE DOORI mean it does look different from the school doors so I was right about that BUT I WAS RIGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING ELSE TOO
>>638488993>middle anchoredI wonder what exactly that means. In any case, the world needs You regardless.
>>638486451I want to have sex with Kris
>>638488993what's the prefix for the sprite? In the game, things related to the goner maker and save menu are given the prefix IMAGE, instead of the standard spr.
>>638443229Honestly I agree with thisSo many series I liked just have been changed altogether and usually for the worseNew games by the standard companies suck ass usually, I've been subsisting off of indies and the rare good AAA title. Dont think I'll be quitting gaming but I do feel like I play tons of alright games before I find a great one
>>638493773Personally i completely gave up on AAA since last gen
>>638494316Im about to, I pretty much only like monster hunter, fromsoft shit and 3D Mario games
will we see chapters 3-5 by the end of this year? considering 3 just got translated i'm thinking somewhere in 2024
>>638425174>Deltratroon players killing themselvesIt's what your cult leader wants.
>>638496540I mean, in chapter 2 sans said maybe 2 year, so I imagine that was tobys original idea for a release window. He's being really vague in the newsletter, but remember with chapter 2 he was really vague too. He's probably just going to do what he did for chapter 2 and announce it like 3 days prior to its release.
chapter 3 when?
>>638472569i decided to give it a shot, i'd say it's pretty good/10
>>638426104>Ch.1 came out in 2018>Ch.2 came out in 2021>Ch.3+4+5 come out in...You be the judge
>>638451445TP mechanic is such a massive fucking improvement that I can't play Undertale anymore
>>638497990okay so if we take toby at his word, half of the time between 1 and 2 was him trying to find a new engine, and he's hired more people for his team since then, so we'll say it'll take about a year to finish a chapter if everybody works at full capacity, but since the lead is handing out assignments directly, and is personally verifying everything, i'd say probably a year and a half at full capacity. however since the lead is dicking around, being a niche japanese celebrity living out his personal dream, i'd say deltarune chapter 3,4 and 5 will be released never, because toby is going to be murdered by Alien X anon in 2031.
>>638498205>playing undertale/deltarune for the gameplay
>>638498559I unironically love the battle system
>>638498205It's a shame that progressing is Spamton NEO's fight doesn't cost TP. It takes a lot away from the difficulty
>he thinks it'll endtoby fox with be the grr martin of dykeshit indie
>>638472818how the actual fuck is snowgrave "gaster all along" you brainlet
>>638499140because ___you is gaster
do not trust the goat
>>638499661The only thing I trust is that my penis will be up his ass.
