Progress paused for now...


UNDERTALE is approaching 50% completion....

Unfortunately, I have a LOT of schoolwork and I haven't had much time to program UNDERTALE for the past couple weeks, so passing that "50" mark might take a while. It seems like this semester will only get harder, too...

The good news is that once I graduate in April, I'll be able to focus ALL my time on the game and make progress like never before!!! I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to that!!!

It's hard to tell, but I think the game might ultimately end up delayed by a couple months due to other work + an extended polishing period. I'm still going to try and make the summer deadline, but I figured it would be better to give some super-advanced warning about it...

      Don't worry Toby. The completion of Undertale may be important, but your school and life obligations should always have the priority. As long as the game gets completed eventually, a delay is not a big deal. Best of luck!

      you are halfway there. maybe while you're focusing on school you'll find something that makes undertale even better. or maybe just end up with more homework. good luck. the best games are never rushed.

      Yeah, by the standards of kickstarter, two months late is reasonably early so don't worry any and, ultimately, extra polish time benefits your backers. Too many games are released too soon these days. All the best with graduation!

      The world of PC videogames is overburdened with bugged-yet-on-time games. Undertale stood out because it was such a charming breath of fresh air, so it would be far better to delay it just to make sure you're 100% happy with the end result before release.

      Besides, kickstarter backers are used to this, and a lot of gamers prefer to play a finished, stable, polished game with an understandable delay, as opposed to either a buggy or a skeletal rushjob. Skeletal as in lacking meat. N-not that skeletons aren't cool too. I... I'm just digging myself into a hole here aren't I?

      No worries Toby, concentrate on school and we'll be patient for the polished end results. =) Best of luck and early congratulations on your graduation! \o/

      Did you ever tell us what you were majoring in?

      Can't wait to see your game becoming a reality.

      Like Star Sheep said late and polished is better than on time and rushed. Plus you have to get people to run through it to find bugs and such like of course. Still even though you are in school just the concept and from what I've seen from the demo it will be well worth the wait so I say focus on your studys then have a ball of fun when you get time for the product.
      Gamers will be patient for a good game and impatient for a bad one.
      Hmm... that might be a good qoute. I should write that down.

      Good Luck with everything mate and look after yourself. You are your number one priority or the game will never get finished :P

      To be honest, I'd prefer it to be delayed and polished, rather than on time and messy!!! I'd say take as much time as you need to allow Undertale to get to be what you want it to be. I can wait! (well I kinda can't, I love this game, but I'm more than willing to wait for a better. game.)
      Good luck with school, Toby! Take care of yourself!

      Two months late is Kickstarter on time.

      Kickstarters never finish by their estimated delivery. It's not a problem. Polish away.

      Best wishes wth school, Toby!
