A small child falls into the Underground, where monsters have long been banished by humans and are hunting every human that they find. The player controls the child as they try to make it back to the Surface through hostile environments, all the while engaging with a turn-based combat system with puzzle-solving and bullet hell elements, as well as other unconventional game mechanics.

An interesting deconstruction of RPGs that questions the notion of what a video game is, which I can appreciate, but I feel like it tries to accomplish way more than it's able to in such a short span of time. The game drops you into a world with one dimensional characters that you interact with for a few hours before beating you over the head with "oh you're LEAVING US???" and the writing just feels really rushed. Combat's fun, music's good, and the art style is appealing, but that's really all it has going for it for me.

Great story, funny characters, banger songs.

You've already heard why this game is good, just play it

If you have ever had a minor interest in Undertale, or wondered what all the fuss is about, just play it. It's a one-of-a-kind chance to explore an RPG turned storybook. Your experience will likely be different from mine, with characters meaning different things depending on your feelings. This is expected, and honestly, a part of the magic. Listen to the wild ravings of the fandom—go play and enjoy.
