DETERMINED to wrap things up
Toby Fox and the gang are still plugging away on DELTARUNE, and we finally have a new progress update to share. This comes via the Undertale/DELTARUNE Newsletter, which just released its third installment. While there are a lot of features in the newsletter, one section focuses entirely on DELTARUNE’s progress. You can read that section in full below.
As was the case last time, we’re focusing on Chapter 3. However, there are a few people working on pieces of later chapters, such as bullet patterns or puzzles.
As for Chapter 3, we’re finally creating the final overworld area. You could think of it like the “Queen’s Castle” or “Card Castle”, but for this chapter. With this complete, the chapter will finally be playable all the way through…! (Fun Fact: I composed the song for this area in 2016…)
This Chapter is made of many different pieces… so it’s been hard to understand exactly how everything was turning out. Now that things are clearer, I just need to roll over the entire game with a steamroller and crush out all the bumps. There may be things to add, things to fix, or things to remove… but, many pieces have been quite polished already, so it won’t be too bad.
As you can tell, this chapter is shaping up to be a pretty strange one. I mostly focused on unusual gameplay elements, and it’s not too heavy on the story. Since it’s so frivolous, I feel a bit self-conscious about it… but, at least I got to try something different!
Anyway, Chapter 4 will be a much more standard chapter!
