    Matmiha's Undertale (PC)

    [April 7, 2016 12:15:14 PM]
    So I have been playing the game completely passively for about an hour now and Iím dying more often than before. I really hope itís worth it. One thing that I noticed after restarting the game is that certain narrative elements have changed, and this was very cool and creepy at the same time. For example, the second time I confronted Toriel at the exit of the ruins, she mentions something along the line of me looking at her as if I saw a ghost. Wow, did the game record my previous session where I killed her and adjusted the narrative based on me killing her? If that is the case then Iím very impressed, not because itís a fresh idea, but rather the way it was implemented. I could have played through the second time without even noticing the narrative adjustment, instead of making the change extreme and noticeable it was very subtle, but at the same time very powerful.

    Playing passively can get a bit annoying at times. As stated above Iím dying more often and staying determined is not easy. Iím currently solving puzzles by the two skeleton brothers (for the second time) and I really wish I had completed the game by this log entry so I could reflect on the ending.

    So as I was making my way through the underworld something was bothering me. The moment after I killed Toriel and went through the door I was confronted with that annoying flower character. And it mentioned me killing her, I canít exactly remember what the flower said, but it was something along the lines that ďI didnít even spare herĒ. Which got me thinking, maybe there is a different way? Maybe I donít have to kill her to progress through the game. This also got me thinking how at the beginning of the game Toriel informs me that I can talk to enemies to avoid fights i.e. killing them. There is even a fighting practice dummy that you can talk to. At this point I realized I didnít once try to flee or spare enemies. I was just slaughtering everything that came upon my way or try to talk my way out of conflicts...but no fleeing or sparing.

    So I couldnít help it. I reset the game and started all over again. This time I didnít kill a single monster. I quickly learned how the flee and spare mechanics work and it made the game even a bit easier in terms of retaining health points and getting through conflicts quicker. As the moment came to face Toriel in front of the exit of the ruins, I did not attackÖI stayed determined and kept on talking to her, to the point of thinking nothing will happen, when eventually the conflict stopped and her life was spared. She let me through the gate and she is alive. This game is messing with meÖbecause now I know there must be alternate endingsÖnow I must remain passive until the end. Wish me luck.

    So I know very little about this game. Letís just say that these retro style RPGís are not my favorite games, but letís give Undertale a chance shall we?
    The first thing that grabbed my attention was the strange and interesting concept of being able to passively end conflicts with monsters. This is fresh, for me at least. I actually tried playing the game entirely as a passive character, which didnít last long. After only about a dozen monsters I gave up on the whole passive nonsense and just proceeded to kill enemies. One thing that I really like about the combat mechanics is the sliding bar attack mechanic, and the bullet hell defense mechanic is also very cool.
    So about 20 minutes into the game and Iím slightly becoming annoyed. The mother-like goat character, Toriel, is really creeping me out. When I eventually reached her house I immediately left to go explore, just to realize I canít do much exploring. I obviously have to put up with this strange goat character. And thatís when the game had its first impact on me, the moment when I had the opportunity to ask Toriel ďwhen can I go homeĒÖI paused on this screen what seemed like a long time, I felt bad for the old goat lady. She made me a cake and was taking care of me and even though I found her annoying, I felt bad asking ďwhen can I go homeĒ. So I tried to ignore the subject, but quickly realized that I must confront her on thisÖand here I am now, I just killed her. She sacrificed her life to test my powers and see if Iím strong enough to face all that the underworld bringsÖand now the game is officially starting. Old goat lady you will be missedÖ
