    I have not played it yet but am curious about it.

    Does it live up to the hype?
    Is it really like Mother?
    How long to complete it?

    NO COFFEI!
    I've certainly played better, with my favourite being Persona 4 Golden, I'd say this is up there though! :P
    -I'd say certain people overhype it but it definitely is good.
    -The first route I took was a failed True Pacifist, so then I went genocide. I've played all routes though!
    -My favourite character is definitely Sans!
    OBVIOUSLY. It all connects, it's so clear. Come on it has to be Ness. The reason being is because if Sans is Ness then Sans is in smash bros I'd main him. /s
    -I think there's a little too much hype but I'd say it certainly comes out close.
    -tbh I've never finished any of the mother games although I've played all of them and I'd say they're certainly similar and different in quite a few ways.
    -Per ending it's really quick 10 hours at most depending on what ending you choose!

    -It has to be this!
    -I've seen lots of talk about it and people in my classroom saw youtubers play it (=/) and kept pressuring me to try it out
    -One of the vegetable enemies can be killed by an action without clicking the fight button which I didn't know. I found this out at the end of the game =/

    do you consider saving and loading saves in the game "time travel" like many of the fans (and even the game itself) suggests?

    Do you feel that the mechanics of a game are more important than the story, or vice versa?

    somewhere
    - Have you played any of the game's it's inspired by? EarthBound, Mother 3, Cave Story, etc.
    - Have you played any UNDERTALE fangames?
    - What's your favorite monster in the game? Least favorite? Which do you feel is most overrated?
    - What did you name your character?

    It's a very neat game with a wonderful soundtrack. I've beaten every route, I'd never play it again because it has no replay value (imo), but as a standalone, I'd say at least give it a shot. It's a pretty short game.

    Fair enough. I heard the creator is super into furry sex situations. How do you feel his bizarre sexual preference impacts the game?

    Hmmmm what do you mean? Like how the game gets all angry when you reset and such. If so yeah I do it all the time! :P
    Hmm I think I'd have to say the mechanics are more important than the story. Games are supposed to be fun and if you have lacking mechanics you can't properly enjoy the game. Sure a good story is always awesome but it's only like the icing on the cake. Games like Mario don't really have a story but are a ton of fun and I can't really imagine those games any other way! :P
    -Played? Sure I think I've played all of them but I still need to finish them! >.<
    -Uh once I was browsing the web and I saw a Papyrus fight thingy and I tried it out. There's also the online bad time simulator which is an identical Sans fight which is always fun!
    -Uhhhh do bosses count? If so Sans! If you mean wild encounter I'm not too sure. Least favourite (again bosses) is probably Undyne tbh. I mean sure she's cool and it doesn't mean I don't like her I just think she has the weakest personality of them all. She's just not as lovable. The most overrated character I think would be Sans. I mean I love him and he sure is awesome but he just gets *sooooooo* much praise and is really overused IMO.
    -I just named it Vin. :P
    Uh oh my. Well I've never heard about this prior but I can surely see where that comes from xD. I think it's impacted the game quite a darn bit but in a good way! It makes it more wacky, unique and just a fun experience.

    what's so special about that game which make everybody talk about it? I didn't understand why everybody mentioned that game when it was released.
    I've heard it's a "no violence" game? you don't fight to win battles, that's right?

    If there are different routes and choices you can make, how long is each route?
    Do you have to replay the game to enjoy all the story, or is that minor changes over the same story?
    is there a "good and bad ending" system, or is it just different choices while playing?
    Can I get the good ending on first play through?

    I might try it, one day, lost in my backlog of games to play.

    -The game is very different. It brings in different story elements along with unique gameplay mechanics. The story also breaks the 4th wall, noticing that you are the real player. Another example is certain characters know when you reset, things like that.
    -You can choose to spare or kill the monsters. If you choose to spare, you must reason it out with them.
    -Each route is a little different in time usually 6-10 hours at most.
    -I'd say you should surely play the True Pacifist and Genocide route and then forget about the game. The other endings are minor!
    -Yeah kinda like that. Your ending varies on who you spare and who you kill.
    -Yes you can.
    -Go for it!
