This week Undertale creator Toby Fox released another free newsletter offering a new update on the next chapter in the Deltarune series.

The official “status update” for Chapter 3 is that the team is currently hard at work on it and that the chapter is now “playable from start to finish.” Unfortunately, it’s not quite over yet, but they’re slowly getting there:

Toby Fox: “I can’t say it’s over yet, but the unfinished parts certainly seem less numerous. Which is good because I’m trying to sleep as much as I can, until the game is over, I’ll have nothing but nightmares…”

Toby also went into some detail about the “stealth-focused section of the game” which seems to have fallen short. The song that was going to be used for this part has also been shared online if you want I listen.

“Earlier, we were thinking about having a stealth-focused section in the game where you could slowly sneak around certain areas. After developing some concepts, we realized that a mechanic that makes you move slower isn’t necessarily fun.”

Last but not least, Undertale is now officially eight years old! Toby says he doesn’t have “a lot of energy for a wild, crazy event this year,” so aside from this newsletter update, there’s nothing special going on. You can check some “Sleepy themed merchandise” on Fangamer Like new Toril slippers. Undertale has also been available on the Switch eShop since 2018.
