‘Undertale’ Developer Teases New Project

‘Undertale’ Developer Teases New Project

Undertale was one of the surprise hits of 2015, coming from the hard work of Homestuck veteran Toby Fox to become one of the most well-received indie games of all time. Since its release, Undertale has been released on a number of systems including, most recently, the Switch.

Today, Fox teased an announcement through several retweets of the official Undertale Twitter page, which looks…different. The page’s header, name and profile images are all pitch-black – like they’ve been censored. Fox insists that people who have completed Undertale are being called to action:

Now, this could mean absolutely anything at all. Perhaps there’s a sequel planned? Undertale wrapped its story up pretty tightly, so I don’t think that’s the case. No, what I think’s going on is that it has something to do with Fox’s original magnus opus: A Halloween-themed romhack for Earthbound…the game most responsible for inspiring Undertale.

The twist? Its 10th anniversary is in January. A long shot? Sure, but I’m just throwing an outlandish theory out so I can feel smart if it comes true. I can dream, can’t I?

Update: I have it on good authority, from a friend who’s pretty deep into Undertale, that the tweets themselves have something to do with W. D. Gaster. He’s a character that isn’t even in the finished game, only being made clear through datamining, but he is pivotal to the events of the game’s lore.

The tweets themselves are below:
