Someone Is Making A 3D Version Of Undertale

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.

Before you start fretting about the feasibility of all this, know that Zykovis is not remaking all of Undertale in 3D. Instead, he told Siliconera that he's making a brief original game about "some dark entity" turning the Underground 3D — nefarious 3D — to try and reach the players of the game themselves.

While I mourn for the idea of every Undertale location realised in glorious ultra-vision, this is probably for the best. A small original game sounds like a downright doable project, meaning we'll hopefully get to play it someday. As of now, Undertale 3D has no release date, so these pretty pictures will have to do:

    Why is undertale talked about so much?

      Because tumblr doesn't know when to shut up about something? Because it ticks all the boxes of the hipster side of indie game fandom? Because the characters are easy to draw/trace so deviant art gets in on it?

      It's pretty funny, easy to play and the endings really catch you off guard.

      I want to know as well. This game is featured on most of the big YouTube top 10 game lists, and I have no idea why

      Even IGN gave it a perfect 10... IGN...

        I had no idea why either, until I played it! Have you given it a go? It's a very well thought out game with good story options and surprising endings. I think it's refreshing to play something that has focused on story more than graphics (I know plenty of games also achieve this but it's certainly the minority at the moment).

          Does it deserve best game of 2015, 10/10?

            When MetaCritic says 96% and Steam gives Overwhelmingly Positive reviews in addition to IGN and other officals giving critical acclaim, AND GameFAQ titles it The Best Game Ever... of All Time? You could say that it has quite a bit of creds.

      Play it and you will see why! :D It's a pretty quick run through the first time (pacifist takes longer, Genocide run is shorter but much harder)
