As you’ve heard us say over and over and over, Undertale is brilliant. It certainly didn’t need 3D to achieve that. The prospect of an extra-dimensional Undertale, though? Innnteresting.
Russian game developer Edik Zykovis doing the deed, applying Undertale‘s 2D sprites to a 3D world. The end effect is… surprisingly not-horrible! It’s got a snazzy lo-fi look about it, and Undertale‘s distinctive character designs maintain their personality despite being under the cruel new rule of forces like BASIC GEOMETRY and DEPTH PERCEPTION.
