Where to start… Okay I’ll just be straight forward; Undertale is by far the best game I have ever played.
For those of you who don’t know, Undertale is an RPG set in a universe with monsters and humans. At one point in time, before the game takes place, both groups got along. However, a war broke out and humans were victorious. They then decided to trap the monsters under a mountain, Mt. Ebott, where they were to remain for all eternity.
The game begins with your character, having climbed and fallen down Mount Ebott, trapped underground with the monsters and trying to find a way back to the realm of humans. However, the game gives you the decision whether to befriend the monsters or become their main antagonist which is one of the reasons I absolutely love it. This also gives you the chance to play through the game and have a different experience every time so the party don’t stop!
The game totals to be around 8 hours when played all the way through, but one thing I cannot recommend enough is to take your time the first run through. Try to get as much out of it as you can as it will make the game much more meaningful at the end.
Another thing I love about Undertale is it’s amazing soundtrack (which is available on Spotify, FYI). The songs consist of similar melodies which Toby Fox used for both his benefit and the game’s. Repeated tunes really gives the player a sense of recognition and nostalgia while playing the game, and it also made song writing simpler for Toby (who not only created the game, but wrote all of the songs for it too).
As I mentioned before, the player experiences new things each time they play through Undertale, but Undertale is also a unique game for each person. The relationships you either choose or choose not to make define your individual character and can result in many different different endings.
The characters that you interact with each have very distinct personalities and are very likable…. well most of them *Robotic Cough*.
All in all, Undertale is an emotional roller coaster that everyone should go on at some point in their lives.
