UNDERTALE is a videogame about child-murdering subterranean monsters who attempt to kill you at every turn, but the monsters are the good guys because they like anime and talk in forced memes. It's called UNDERTALE cause CAVERNFABLE, GROTTOYARN, Cave Story, and SUBTERRANEANDIEGESIS were taken. You play a silent protagonist who finds themself in a mysterious cave system haunted by flowers modified by a mad scientist, and no these flowers are golden and not red so you can't sue. Instead of flying with boosters and shooting bars of soap, you dodge things on screen and read dialogue.
The game has an inventive story which touches on meta-narratives, choice and the consequences of violence in interactive entertainment, which means it attracts the Thomas Was Alone crowd who believe videogames were all murder simulators and Tetris before they started blogging about it. The game has a colorful cast of anthropomorphized animals with shoehorned character tics, which appeals to the My Little Pony fans and other zoophilics who don't see the shame in fapping to pictures of blue glowing skeleton boners. Add the two together and somehow you get the biggest indie game of 2015.
You dodge things with the arrow keys and press Z, X and C after that to beat the game.
You can ATTACK monsters who attack you and kill them, or you can SPARE them since that's how you get to play the feel-good pacifist route. God knows you won't spare them otherwise, since they'll be walking all-invisible like getting ready to pounce on you even after you've spared them for the fifth goddamn time. You can also FLIRT with monsters, a game mechanic created solely to inspire smut art and incessant shipping wars.
The fandom of UNDERTALE is well known for having its ups and downs, as its fandom is the following: 40% porn, which makes no sense. 30% bad art, 5% creeps who rant at everyone's opinion, 20% weird kids, And 5% good and legitimate stuff. UNDERTALE is actually stage 7 brain cancer thanks to the fans
Frisk: Protagonist of Undertale and holy figure of the Agender faith. Frisk's character is often the subject for debate after a terrorist attack that took the lives of 29 people in response to a Lithuanian paper depicting Frisk as male. Frisk's gender, henceforth, became a major debate topic late in the 2016 U.S. Election between Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and Sportacus.
The story of Frisk begins with the announcement of The Emoji Movie, in which the character attempts to take their own life by jumping off a cliff. Unfortunately, Frisk survived the fall only to then be made a talking flower's bitch. At this point, Frisk knew they fucked up. Interestingly enough, Frisk would be saved from the talking flower with the help of Toriel 'the Goat Mom,' who then attempts to annex the fallen child as one of her own. For the 10-20 minutes to follow, Toriel would teach Frisk the ways of peace, love, and friendship while at the same time serving the fallen child butterscotch pie.
Regardless, Frisk would soon discover Toriel's MAC-10 and proceed to kill everyone, only to eventually fall into an endless loop of getting Cucked by a skeleton.
Flowey the Flower/Asriel Dreemurr:The main antagonist of UNDERTALE. He is a very predictable character who basically looks cute but wants to murder absolutely everything because plot. He is also apparently Toriel's son who turned into a flower because of plot plot plot bleh someone else finish this pls
Sans the Skeleton: Basically a living pun dispenser who only speaks in the font Comic Sans, hence the VERY WITTY AND CLEVER name. He is somewhat mysterious, and can also "teleport" by appearing twice in one room but far enough to not appear twice in the same screen. He also serves as one of the two real boss fights in the entire Genocide Run of UNDERTALE (where you kill everything) because all the others are just scripted events in which you deal an impossible amount of damage. His infamous boss fight has wasted many hours in the lives of gamers. He has spawned dozens, if not hundreds of "theories," fanfictions and even worse, fangirls. For more information on the matter look up "sans fangirl cringe compilation" on YouTube then watch the first video you see. NOTE: Search at your own risk.
Papyrus: Sans's brother, who is also named after a font. In summary, he likes spaghetti, has an obsession with puzzles, possesses below-average intellect, the cliché urge to be kind, and is basically a smol. His only purpose in the Genocide Run is to make you feel guilty.
Undyne An anthropomorphic fish who has magic laser spears and is a tomboyish lesbian. In the Pacifist Run she tries to kill the protagonist and somehow befriends you due to Papyrus befriending you also. Later in the game, she gives you a totally not filler mission to deliver a love letter to Alphys, which unfolds into a PG love story in which she and Alphys realize their mutual affection for each other. (Seriously can i stop writing this now) In the Genocide Run she tries to kill you, and is the less difficult (but still maddening) boss fight.
Asgore Dreemurr: The king of the monsters. He was Toriel's husband until she left him for declaring war on humanity. He is the benevolent ruler of the underground who, for some reason, likes to walk around his kingdom and talk to people. His name is shown in all caps to make it look more dramatic up until the second half of the game, after which he is revealed to be a tortured anthropomorohic goat who is tortured by a guilty conscience. He wields a pretty badass trident which is, incidentally, red. Add that to his being a goat, and you MOST DEFINITELY do NOT get fanmade theories saying that he is Satan.
