No more Deltarune this year, but here’s a look at what’s coming

Today marks the seven-year anniversary of Undertale, a one-person project that was not only a love letter to the JRPGs of old but took their best ideas, twisted them around, and wrought something new and vital from them. As the much-missed Richard Cobbett wrote on his way to awarding it a stonking 91% (opens in new tab), Undertale “may or may not be the best RPG you play this year, but it’s certainly going to be one of the most worthwhile—as memorable as anything in, say, The Witcher 3, and every bit as worthy.”

Undertale’s not-a-sequel Deltarune (an anagram of Undertale) first broke cover in 2018, with a vibe very much in-line with what had gone before but a new episodic structure. Thanks to Undertale creator Toby Fox making a gajillion dollars from his wonderful game, he also decided to make Deltarune free until it’s more substantial: the first two chapters can be downloaded here, and are excellent.
