    Oh no he's even more precious

    Endgame spoiler
    Safety spoiler just in case.
    Boy howdy I'm glad there were enough discrepencies in the characters to confirm this isn't the same continuity as Undertale or I'd have been super sad. Asriel and Dadhugs wouldn't have been worth it.

    That. Was certainly a thing.
    Some kind of AU? Alternate timeline? Gaster fuckery into other worlds and possibilities? Who knows.

    Neat twist on the Undertale system, too.

    Wow that insane uninstall oversight is the same as in Sierra's unpatched uninstaller for the retail Half-Life 1.0 release on CD, which cost me all my games saves and self-programmed games back in 2001. I kept all of that in sub-directories under a single top-level "Games" folder. The uninstall is effectively a DELTREE on the entire path to the game, minus the root of the drive.

    Back then, I didn't know what had happened at first and wound up making the same mistake on both my laptop and desktop before I realized why that folder got nuked. To this day I still haven't managed to re-code or re-complete most of that. I'm shocked to see this sort of elementary mistake again.

    I don't see anything on the site that would let me contact its maker. I don't use Social Media, so that isn't an option. Any idea how to perhaps email them?

    That ending..
    Putting my money on someone having trapped Frisk, I'm not entirely convinced this is just an alternate universe.

    I'm getting strong "we gotta break out the matrix" vibes here. Susie being here and being mentioned as important in the other undertale world too can't be a coincidence.

    Something neat about the status screen:
    It seems that characters' descriptions can not only change over time, but based on what items they have equiped. Ralsei had a different description for the Red Scarf, Ragger, and Dainty Scarf.

    Ending
    For sure Kris has no relation to Frisk, by all accounts seems to be an alternate Chara. Could also be a prequel taking place before the human/monster war and this is just what actually happened, but I don't think that quite adds up with the backstory of Undertale. So it's more like an alternate universe in the past.

    Actually The End Of The Game Spoilers
    Double Spoiler Protection. Turn back if you haven't seen the credits.
    How the hell is it that walking around the calm town got me more shocked than any of the preceding events?

    Everything is like, just somewhat different. The town looks like the kind of idyllic scene that was set up at the end of Undertale; Toriel's a teacher, monsters are happy, etc. But Undyne doesn't know Alphys. sans and Papyrus are new in town and nobody knows them. Asriel is alive and there's no indication that this is a name given to him in honor of the original Asriel. And there's not a single human in town other than Kris. So is this before Undertale? Is this town some place in Mt. Ebott? Except that Toriel and Asgore are separated, but Asgore isn't a king, and Toriel isn't locked in some distant Ruins, which is apparently where she went as soon as she split with Asgore. Not to mention that Gerson (remember him? The old turtle shopkeep dude from Undetale?) is dead. And Asriel is old enough to go to college, even though he and Chara died as children.

    And that's not even to mention the freaky-as-hell ending scene.

    WHAT IS GOING ON?!?

    Psssssst

    psst
    Deltarune is an anagram of Undertale :0

    Yeah don't worry tho I didn't piece that Ralsei thing together til the end as well

    "Kris" is also "Frisk" without the F, hmmmm!


    (yo hey ALSO, omega post-game story spoilers tho don't open if u ain't beat it, fair warning)
    Last chance.
    My current going theory is that Deltarune is some sort of an Undertale alternate universe/world. It clearly doesn't occur post-Undertale, it doesn't occur pre-Undertale. It's gotta be some sort of AU.

    Like you've got certain characters that, in Undertale, were fucking BESTIES that either don't know each other in Deltarune (Undyne/Alphys) or hate each other (Catty/Bratty). Like things have been all flipped around, despite there being the same sort of setting and characters. Kris is the only human in a world of monsters, adopted by Toriel... Yknow, almost the exact same thing as Chara in Undertale.

    BY THE WAY, LOOK AT KRIS'S SPRITE AND THEN CHARA'S I DIDN'T CATCH THAT SHIT TIL I GOT BACK TO THE SCHOOL. Same fucking hair sAME GODDAMN GREEN FUCKING SHIRT

    Um, but yeah. Ralsei == Asriel, at least in name. But also in appearance?? Ralsei looks JUST LIKE Asriel did in Undertale. But Deltarune's Asriel is clearly older, being off in college. CONSIDER THIS: Ralsei calls himself a "Dark Prince." Undertale!Asriel, technically speaking, was a Prince. Asgore was King, Asriel was his son.... Soooo what if Ralsei isn't exactly.... from this world....???

    (Yes I'm hinting that Ralsei is Undertale!Asriel. That's my going theory, anyway.)

    Also consider that we have the same characters but different personalities-ish, right? Except, Sans. Sans appears to be... pretty much the same.... And we know from the Genocide route in Undertale that he's no stranger to Time Fuckery and all that jazz.... So hmmmmmm..................................

    Yeah so that's my guess. Deltarune is a weird sort of scrambled different Undertale AU, and I'm PREEEETTY sure that was Gaster we were talking to at the very very start. Sure as shit wasn't Chara.


    Edit: In regards to Kris and the very very ending scene where they rip out their SOUL and throw it in the birdcage, presumably being possessed by Chara: At the start of the game, we WERE told that we were making "A Vessel". We all just, promptly disregarded/forgot about that because we were then promptly told our choices were discarded and didn't matter.

    Now we know what (or who, I suppose) the "Vessel" was for, hm?

    Pondering if I care enough to go through again, evidence would suggest there's some stuff I missed along the way.
    Remembered to backtrack for that one puzzle you can't do until you've been to the castle, it gave me part of a broken key, suggesting there's other parts I need to find before it can be repaired. Then there's presumably a door it goes to somewhere.

    Unsure of if I have the heart to try for a genocide run. This one seems like it'd make things a bit more... personal than Undertale.

    Wild speculation time
    Seriously, for what happens after Deltarune, assumes that you've completed the game here
    My guess is that we're not playing as Kris for the remainder of the chapters. Instead, we'll just be the heart and we'll "possess" other characters and try to fix the timeline somehow.

    E.g. - repair Asgore and Toriel's relationship.
    Make sure Undyne and Alphys meet and become best friends.
    Etc., etc.

    Like an Undertale version of Quantum Leap. Kris or Chara (Archa?) will be the Evil Leaper trying to fuck things up.

    real spoilers i guess
    at the Forest-After Maze save point you can walk out of bounds by going to the left. i thought it might have had something to do with the freedom offered by the Jevil, but i beat him and came back and can't figure anything out.

    The three save files are different (and multiple save files is weird for Undertale, right?)

    This points towards the game being a game about alternate universes, rather than just set in one.
