Chapter 2 of Toby Fox's Deltarune surprise launches on PC for free today

q7onYS.png

After nearly three years of radio silence, the newest game from acclaimed Undertale creator Toby Fox released today. Chapter 2 of Deltarune, the parallel story to Undertale, was suddenly announced early yesterday morning to be getting a release this morning on Steam and Itch. Like the first chapter, chapter 2 is available for a free download. However, according to a FAQ on the official Deltarune website, chapters 3-5 will be paid releases. It is also worth noting that these releases are only on Windows and Mac, and it is unknown when chapter 2 will be available on PS4 and Switch.

In a status update posted in September of 2020, Toby Fox stated that future chapters will likely not take as long as chapter 2 has. After releasing chapter 1, most of that development time was spent on finishing a detailed outline of the rest of the chapters, filling out the rest of his team, and trying to find a better engine to make the following chapters in other than GameMaker, which was used to develop the first chapter (before ultimately deciding to continue using GameMaker). As of right now, however, no solid details have been given on when to expect future chapters.

He's still selling it on Itch? Toby Fox's Undertale and Deltarune are so popular it feels off that they're on Itch haha. I've always had the idea that Indie games are supposed to be niche to be Indie but I guess that's technically wrong as the meaning comes from being independently created iirc.

Neat. I've been a fan of these games since whenever I played them first. I never really encountered the fan base which I've heard is fairly toxic so my enjoyment wasn't really dampened at all.

Same here, but I will say though since the music is stellar, it's on YouTube and the likes, too much. I've heard the OST and variations of it so much over time on all kinds of content that it has degraded them a bit.

Kinda like how if you listen to a great new song too much it loses its magic after a while and it'll be quite a while till you can enjoy it again, but then it doesn't have the same effect anymore either.

That's my gripe with the fan base and popularity. Other than that, even though admittedly when a piece of media is amazing but at the same time isn't as popular and it feels even more special to me because of it, it's easy to forget any details surrounding the game once you are playing it. Though I reckon a big part of the reason the fan base is bad is cause of all kinds of spoilers, which would definitely ruin one's experience.

I feel like I should finish a Genocide run before tackling Deltarune at all, and I've never gotten around to it. (I know it's quite tedious.)

5 hours later... It's amazing. But I can't get through the damn basement due to bullshit deaths.

Good luck. I still haven't been able to beat Sans. Hell I was barely able to beat Undying Undyne.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
