Foolish child of man...
After reading all this,
do you still not understand?




Undertale is a very recent RPG, created by Toby Fox. It almost immediately became my favorite RPG of all time, so I want to share it with as many people as possible. The game's demo is available here, and the full game is on Steam.

I'm jumping into this pretty drat quickly after release, but I'm going to do everything I can to make this as well-crafted of an LP as I can manage. I am confident that I'm not starting this under-prepared.

The ground rules:

  • This is a screenshot LP. There will be music links, and video links for important scenes - if one is particularly important or awesome, it will be marked with sirens.
  • I will try to keep updates fast and steady. The exact pace will vary with the size of the updates, but I'm going to hard promise at least two updates per week, from start to finish. (In reality, it's closer to daily updates, because I have no self control.)
  • While I will be trying to be very thorough, this won't be a 100% run. The nature of Undertale makes that virtually impossible. I'll be doing two main playthroughs, which will be very different.
  • Don't spoil any future events, under any circumstances, even with little coy hints. Undertale should be experienced as blindly as possible.
  • Don't spoil any past events, either. At least not until my second playthrough.
  • Increase LOVE as much as possible.

"Hey, it's not really a spoiler but you just missed this thing you can do so let me tell you about it"
Don't post about it. I will be doing a total of three playthroughs, then after the end of the third one I will be opening the LP to posts about other things I didn't cover by other people.

"but"
Look, if you're really worried that I missed something because I didn't know about it, throw me a PM or something.

Foolish child of man...
After reading all this,
do you still not understand?


BGM: Once Upon a Time

























BGM: Silence

The story begins.



Hmm... I'll just pull a random name out of a hat for this one.



Sure, that looks good.



I seem to have fallen from a great height.



What is this place?



It's clearly not a natural cave. I cross through the doorway.



Is that... a flower?



BGM: Your Best Friend

You're new to the Underground, aren'tcha?
Golly, you must be so confused.
Someone ought to teach you how things work around here!
I guess little old me will have to do.
Ready? Here we go!



I can move my soul around with the arrow keys, but only within that box.

Your soul starts off weak, but can grow strong if you gain a lot of LV.
What's LV stand for? Why, LOVE, of course!
You want some LOVE, don't you?
Don't worry. I'll share some with you!



Down here, LOVE is shared through...



Are you ready?



The friendliness pellets fall into my box. I do my best to catch one.



BGM: Silence

Wait, where did all my HP go?



In this world, it's kill or BE killed.
Why would ANYONE pass up an opportunity like this?!





Well, it's been fun, but I guess the LP is about to end.



Before I die, though, a mysterious force repels the bullets and restores my HP.



BGM: Fallen Down



Ah, do not be afraid, my child.
I am Toriel, caretaker of the Ruins.
I pass through this place every day to see if anyone has fallen down.
You are the first human to come here in a long time.
Come! I will guide you through the catacombs.





Toriel guides me through another doorway.



BGM: Ruins

The doorway leads to a vast, purple area. Something is shining up ahead.





Looks like it was a save point.

I save my game, then follow her upstairs.



Allow me to educate you in the operation of the RUINS.





Ancient fusions between diversions and doorkeys.
One must solve them to move from room to room.
Please adjust yourself to the sight of them.



I follow Toriel into the next room.



Do not worry, I have labelled the ones that you need to flip.



I press Z to read a very useful sign.



Oops. Let's go find those switches.



I think I found the first one.



I flip it, and Toriel moves on to guide me to the next switch.



As I flip the second switch, the spikes blocking the door retract.



Let us move to the next room.

What about this switch, though?



Oh.



You will need to be prepared for this situation.
However, worry not! The process is simple.
When you encounter a monster, you will enter a fight.
While you are in a fight, strike up a friendly conversation.
Stall for time. I will come to resolve the conflict.
Practice talking to the dummy.



All right, here goes nothing...



BGM: Anticipation



So, this is what fights look like. I have four options - FIGHT, ACT, ITEM, MERCY.

Right now, I have no items. I'll get to FIGHT and MERCY later. For now, I pick ACT, and select the Dummy.



Every monster has a different set of actions under ACT. The first one here, CHECK, is shared by all of them - it tells me about the monster's attributes.

Instead, I'm going to Talk to it, as Toriel said.



It doesn't seem much for conversation.
TORIEL seems happy with you.




Victory! Of a sort!



BGM: Ruins

Toriel proceeds to the next room.



I wonder if you can solve it?



All right, I'll take a look. I see some kind of pattern on the floor...



Oops! My first random encounter!



BGM: Enemy Approaching

I could FIGHT it to reduce its HP... but it seems pretty nice. I mean, it hasn't done anything to hurt me.



The Froggit gives three ACT options, instead of two. Since I've never seen one before, I'll Check it first.



Really doesn't seem worth fighting.



Toriel gives the Froggit a stern look, and it goes away on its own.



Another victory! This time against a living monster!



This must be talking about the pattern on the floor in the previous room...



Which reveals a safe path through the spikes!



Here, take my hand for a moment.



Toriel guides me through the safe route across the room.



I had it right, though.



Toriel goes on ahead again.



BGM: Silence

However... I have a difficult request to ask of you.
...
I would like you to walk to the end of the room by yourself.
Forgive me for this.



BGM: Unnecessary Tension

Toriel runs down the room, faster than I can follow.



I head out on my own. The room is long.



Seriously, it goes on forever.



The end is in sight!



Do not worry, I did not leave you.
I was merely behind this pillar the whole time.
Thank you for trusting me.
However, there was an important reason for this exercise.
...to test your independence.
I must attend to some business, and you must stay alone for a while.
Please remain here. It's dangerous to explore by yourself.



If you have a need for anything, just call.
Be good, alright?



She's taking her time getting back.



I'll just continue on without her.

What's the worst thing that could happen?

I... hmm. I wanted to be very excited for this LP the moment I saw it in the thread list, but... I'm a bit worried on a matter of format. Mostly, it's the faces. The portraits in this game can get very emotive! But we've only got 1 image for each character so far (counting Flowey's friendly facade as separate for the time being), and it'd be a shame if they didn't get shown off fully. The sound design, in addition to the music, is also quite wonderful, and it's unfortunate we won't be hearing each "voice" that goes with the character's words. I'm, uh, also worried about one of those rules, but I'm sure you expected that one.

But, uh, other than all that, I'm all on board for this! I'll also second previous posters in saying that, if you think you might have any interest in this game, go play the demo immediately! This is a very good game!

Regarding the character faces, I am indeed honoring when they change. Toriel is just very consistently neutral-happy in this segment, and most of the really emotive characters show up later. Don't worry, I'm going to have 10+ different icons for some characters.

The sound effects are just something I can't really do anything about aside from bits I do videos for.

Foolish child of man...
After reading all this,
do you still not understand?




BGM: Ruins



You have not left the room, have you?
There are a few puzzles ahead that I have yet to explain.
It would be dangerous to try to solve them yourself.
Be good, alright?



(I have some advice for you about battling monsters.)
(If you ACT a certain way, or FIGHT until you almost defeat them...)
(They might not want to battle you anymore.
(If a monster does not want to fight you, please...)
(Use some Mercy, human.)
Ribbit.





With some helpful advice from a passing Froggit, I save my game and head to the north.



It seems to be on the honor system, so there's no reason I couldn't take all the candy I want...



But I like to think I'm a good person.



This is the out-of-battle menu. I can fiddle with my inventory, check my stats, or use the cellphone that Toriel gave me.



So far, I have yet to gain any LOVE. That's probably why my stats are so lousy.



Since I only have my pockets, inventory space is limited. I can only carry up to eight items at a time.



I think most foods have distinct, non-licorice flavors.



The only phone number I know is Toriel's. I call her to say hello.



You only wanted to say hello...? Well then.
'Hello!'
I hope that suffices. Hee hee.



On my way back south, I have another first: My first fight without Toriel!



BGM: Enemy Approaching

It doesn't look very fearsome.



Since I don't want to resort to violence just yet, it looks like I can Check, Console, or Terrorize the Whimsun. I will Check the little critter.



Why are we even fighting, man?



Enemy attacks work a little strangely in Undertale!

Now that Toriel isn't watching over me, enemies will act after I act. During the enemy turn, they'll usually attack me by sending various projectiles into the field where my soul is. I can move my soul around during these sequences, so I can avoid taking damage as long as no part of the attack touches my soul.

Whimsun, being a wimpy little ghost bug, barely attacks at all. Its butterfly bullets aren't even aimed towards me. I avoid the attack effortlessly.



Now, let's talk about MERCY.



Fleeing does about what you'd expect. Don't expect to see much of it.

Spare is another new mechanic. It does two things.

First, it ends my turn peacefully, in case I didn't want to attack anyone.
Second, if any enemies don't want to fight me, they'll be ejected from the battle.



The downside of sparing enemies is that you don't get any EXP, meaning you can't increase your LOVE.

I'll be skipping battles from now on, if I've already seen that encounter before. So, if I trigger a fight with one Whimsun, you won't see it.



One room over to the east, I see some suspicious markings on the ground. Well, nothing to do but go forwards--



I learned an important lesson, at least.



The door on the right despoits me back up here, on the far side of the hidden pit. As puzzles go, this one isn't too taxing.



All this puzzle-solving is making me lonely. Time to learn a bit more about Toriel.



You want to know more about me?
Well, I am afraid there is not much to say.
I am just a silly little lady who worries too much!



I must have caught her at an odd moment, because she calls me back the instant I step into the next room.



For no reason in particular... Which do you prefer?



I choose the obviously correct reply.



Click. I wonder what that was about.



Two steps later, she calls me again.



You do not DISLIKE butterscotch, do you?
I know what your preference is, but...
Would you turn up your nose if you found it on your plate?
Right, right, I understand.
Thank you for being patient, by the way.



Well hey, we've got a rock right here!



I push the rock onto the button, and the spikes go down. Zelda puzzles 101.



The next room has a whole lot of that suspicious floor pattern. I think I know where this is going...



One step in and I fall, of course.



The room below has some interesting leaf assortments. Could this be... a clue?



Could this be... another clue?



Another Froggit... but this time, I have to fight it solo!



And by fight it, I mean... maybe it doesn't want to fight?



Nope, it definitely wants to pick a fight.

The Froggit's first attack is shooting flies at me - much more dangerous than the Whimsun, but still not hard to avoid.



Not every creature in this world is so kind-hearted. The Froggit will need persuading if I want to get out of this without killing it.

So, what if I Compliment it first?



Froggit didn't understand what you said, but was flattered anyway.



It seems pleased, but still shoots some flies at me.



OK, what about now?



I got some cash this time! That's 2 gold, bringing me up to a grand total of 2 gold.



Anyway, back to this puzzle. The trick is that it's safe to stand up here anywhere where there wasn't a pile of leaves below.



I hurry on to the exit.



The next room looks pretty straightforward. You know what they say about 3 out of 4 rocks, after all.



My rock-pushing is interrupted, though, by a new battle. The last two fights, combined into one!



I'll start out by threatening Froggit. I have a stick and I know how to use it!



Being a tutorial enemy, Froggit is very easy to talk my way out of fighting. Either one of the two ACT options will leave it ready to be Spared.



Monsters don't take their turns one at a time - if there's more than one monster, their attacks are all combined. Suddenly, Whimsun's butterflies aren't so harmless!

Fortunately, when multiple monsters attack at once, their attacks are also weakened - the flies are replaced with easier-to-dodge pellets, and the wall of butterflies is a bit wider.



Once I'm done dodging, though, I can Spare both monsters in one shot. Battle over!



Just a little more rock-pushing, and...



HMM? So you're ASKIN' me to move over?
Okay, just for you, pumpkin.



The rock scoots forwards half a step, then stops.



Alrighty, how's this?



The rock moves again, this time in the wrong direction.



Okay, think I got it.



The rock finally moves onto the button, opening the way forward.



ROCK



You're giving me a real workout.



The rock finally cooperates, only for me to get into a fight on the way across.



New enemy! This one isn't much stronger than the last two.



You can flirt with a lot of things in this game. For now, though, let's Check this monster out.



I'm really not sure what to make of Moldsmal.

I could actually just Spare it right now and win, but I'm gonna play with it a bit first.



Moldsmal has two attacks, this being the more dangerous one.

I'm going to Imitate it and see what happens.



Huh.



Moldsmal's second attack is trivial. Let's try Flirting with it.



The Moldsmal does a sexy wiggle and exudes the aroma of lime gelatin.



Anyway, off you go.



This small room contains a mouse hole and a cheese.





Maybe I shouldn't eat it.







I save my game. Onwards!



There's a ghost in the way.



zzzzzzzzzzz... (are they gone yet) zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...





Look, I have to get through here, so wake up already.



Video: Napstablook Fight

BGM: Ghost Fight



This is the first of a great many miniboss fights! Before us is a ghost named Napstablook.



Napstablook attacks mainly by being unhappy.



I won't stop flirting with every monster until they force me to.



Time to prepare for Napstablook's second attack!



Wow.



I obviously can't beat up a depressed ghost, so I'll Cheer them up a bit instead.





For my kindness, I am rewarded with the fiercest attack the game has thrown out yet. It's not uncommon for me to get hit here, but I managed to avoid it this time.



Regardless, their mood improved a bit, so I'm going to Cheer again.



...heh heh...



They're still crying at me, but not as intensely as before.



Cheer!



let me try...



do you like it...



Cheer!



The fight ends.



BGM: Ruins

but today i met somebody nice...
...
oh, i'm rambling again
i'll get out of your way



They seemed nice.

Well, you've already inspired one person to buy the game! "Favorite RPG of all time" is especially high praise from someone with a Mother 3 avatar, and that opening with the flower convinced me I have to play along with this rather than just watch it.

It's already really good. That first encounter with the flower is just so goddamn menacing. And knowing this isn't your ordinary RPG too, that in itself casts a whole lot of doubt over what I'm supposed to be doing.

I named my character 'Luna' cause Toriel's insistent niceness and wondering if we can really trust her reminds me of Virtue's Last Reward.

I tried the demo for this a year ago and was pretty underwhelmed. It crashed outside the ghost room and ate my saves in the process so I never went back to it. Pretty unfortunate since that ghost fight is the first thing that really interested me and I got within inches of it.

You're thinking of another hack.

No, that's the same hack. It's embarrassingly edgy "My First ROMhack" stuff and isn't worth checking out unless you want to see how much someone's writing can improve in five years.

Which is an actual good EB hack (though not without some fairly big flaws).

Advice for anyone who plays undertale's demo as a result of the lets play: make sure to read the instruction manual both before you start playing and after you finish it.

Instruction Manual? I only saw the one brief screen explaining the controls, not any kind of manual. How do you access it? (A quick Google convinced me I better avert my eyes before I get spoiled on something cool)

If you're playing the demo there should be an instructionbooklet.html in the same folder as the exe
