Hit indie game Undertale looks like it's coming to Linux & SteamOS

By - | Views: 14,129
Undertale, a very popular 2D indie RPG looks like it's coming to Linux. It has 'Overwhelmingly Positive' reviews overall on Steam, so that's something.

A user on the Steam forum had an email chat with the developer, who asked for Linux testers (he has enough now). So hopefully the testing goes well and we get another popular game soon.

About the game (Official)
Welcome to UNDERTALE. In this RPG, you control a human who falls underground into the world of monsters. Now you must find your way out... or stay trapped forever.

The feature list is awesome:

- Killing is unnecessary: negotiate out of danger using the unique battle system.
- Time your attacks for extra damage, then dodge enemy attacks in a style reminiscent of top-down shooters.
- Original art and soundtrack brimming with personality.
- Soulful, character-rich story with an emphasis on humor.
- Created mostly by one person.
- Become friends with all of the bosses!
- At least 5 dogs.
- You can date a skeleton.
- Hmmm... now there are 6 dogs...?
- Maybe you won't want to date the skeleton.
- I thought I found a 7th dog, but it was actually just the 3rd dog.
- If you play this game, can you count the dogs for me...? I'm not good at it.

I might have to try it based on the fun sounding feature list, and how well reviewed by everyone it is. Article taken from

KelsBit of trivia, apparently this was mostly created in Andrew "Homestuck" Hussie's basement.

I have no clue where you heard this but as far as I know, it's not true.

This is almost entirely work of Toby Fox, who worked with Andrew Hussie as a music producer, but as far as I know, that's where direct interaction between them ends.

Of course, Toby Fox was quite famous within the Homestuck community and there's a considerable demographic overlap between Homestuck and Undertale, as both revel in brutalizing existing genres of games and pop culture. But as far as I know, Hussie isn't directly involved in any way whatsoever.

My Google+ feed is full of Undertale reference and fanart, so being able to play the game and know what it's all about would be great. This is final testing so it shouldn't take long I hope, I will buy as soon as I see the SteamOS/Linux icon.

Hells to the yes :B I was on the edge of caving and just playing through WINE, hopefully the wait is nearly over.

14My only interest is because of the hype (doesn't mean I'll buy it). I don't buy very many 2D games because I think they're overdone. Hello, I have powerful gaming machines and I want nice visuals.

Also, what? I can understand when people complain about the abundance of games that use pixel art, even though it doesn't bother me so long as it fits the overall aesthetics. But dismissing all 2D games? That's like saying I'm tired of movies that are in color or that comics that aren't 3D magic eye pictures lack any decent visuals. 2D and 3D fit different aesthetics and gameplay mechanics. I can't see what 3D could've added to games like Hotline Miami or Paper's Please. End rant
