I honestly don't know how to feel about the story of this game.
On one hand, taken on its own terms, it's a pretty formulaic plot, further distilled down to its most succinct form

@QuestForTori Personally i'm wondering how indicative it is of where the greater plot is going. As you said it feels more like a jump scare to get an emotional reaction - and I wonder whether it will even have any meaningful bearing on DR whenever it continues.
I'm not sure if the implication here is that the protagonist is Chara, adopted and renamed Kris, and we're a possessing spirit keeping them empathetic and moral. I'd be interested in that, at least?
@QuestForTori I'm less worried about the characters feeling flimsy at this point because likewise Undertale started with cute caricatures and expanded upon them to give them depth.
