I'm just going to say it, I hate the uncritical acceptance that *other* route through Undertale has gotten. I hate that players view it as innocent extra content as opposed to the evisceration of that shortsighted mindset that it is.
@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. If Toby is truly intending to expand upon this game into full length, it sounded like this is probably the first 20% at most. That leaves a lot of room to build up characters, I think.
@Shadejackrabbit yeah, the general response to this reading is "wait and see in later chapters", which I sincerely hope pays off, but I am still comfortable assessing the game for what it is and what it is showing us now without hinging that on what it could be later.
I agree, it'll probably turn around, but for now, this is Deltarune, and I wanted to talk about it as it stands
