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

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.

Nice that he's giving away the first two chapters free, but I'm not a huge fan of this type of piecemeal release schedule. Why not just drop the full game when it's finished, all at once, and make chapters one and two the demo?
probably because it's gonna take ass long and he wants to keep momentum / hype / speculation going

He actually said he was going to release all the full game at once and only put chapter 1 for free. I don't know why the fuck he released this-

Surely you are aware that if you're playing anything on the PC, it's generally trivial to manually back up the files in which the save data is stored and thus have as many save slots as you want?

I'd been wondering if Toby had quietly shelved this project, since there had been complete radio silence for the past three years.
Guess not!
He's not too social in general, development of Undertale was also on a silent side aside of some obligatory updates. Can't blame him much considering the SoSorry/Samael drama, tbh.
