AGP017 Side A - Undertale (Walkthrough with Hanari)
The Cast - Ryan Rilea (Grillby), Hanari Solomon (Undyne), Dillon George (Papyrus), David Paddock (Toriel)
Reviewing Undertale is an ordeal. The layers and craziness that pervade this game make very hard to discuss with just starting at the top, so that’s what we did. In this first leg, while we still had Hanari, we talked our way through a “Pacifist” run of the game, breaking down what makes Toby Fox’s video game debut so remarkable along the way.
General evaluation (by David, though I assume a consensus from the crew): anybody who is willing to play video games should play this game. It’s fun even if you don’t commit to seeing it through to the true ending; if you do take that step, Undertale is one the best interactive stories ever told.
HOLY JEEBUS SPOILERS: We hold nothing back during this discussion. Everyone at the table has played through the “Pacifist” route and has at least watched the “No Mercy” route. If you think you’ve beat Undertale but haven’t fought the credits…let’s just say there’s more to the story. Use a wiki to make sure you don’t miss anything, but at a minimum PLAY through—don’t watch—the pacifist route.
Hanari's dedication to this game floods the banks of talking about it. Extra super-duper have played the game before clicking this link: archiveofourown.org/works/5018737
