The famous Undertale and delta rune Creator Toby Fox shared a very brief game development update via social media.
After showing off some of his concept art, Fox mentioned that his game development was “going well”. He has a good feeling about it and also notices how lately he gets more and more people to help.
We suspect he’s referring to the remaining Deltarune chapters. The second chapter was released for free on the Switch eShop last September following a Nintendo Direct presentation. He’s currently working on more chapters, and reports say there are up to seven chapters in the pipeline.
In a previous update, Fox also mentioned how he hired a team of people to help him develop Chapter 2:
“The time it took to develop Chapter 2 itself was actually a year and a half. There were a lot of things to do before we could start full-scale development. However, three years is… I’m a little sorry making everyone wait so long…
I programmed “Chapter 1” and “UNDERTALE” all by myself, but now I can’t program for a long time because I injured my wrist. So “Chapter 2″ is about 90% programmed by another team member. Yes, I’ve become a director since that time (imagine a working dog in a beret).”
Hopefully, with development progressing well, this means that Chapters 3, 4, and 5 will be released sooner rather than later. Apparently when they arrive they will be released together, at which point players will have to purchase the game. Here’s what he had to say during a blog update last September:
“My next goal is to complete chapters 3, 4 and 5 for next time. Then at that time I will ask that people buy the game for the price of the first 5 chapters (including 1 and 2). I don’t know the price yet, but it will definitely cost more than UNDERTALE.”
Are you excited for the remaining Deltarune chapters? Have you played the first two chapters yet? Leave a comment below.
