Guy's this is not just a game... It's a life experience..
(Listen to this song as you read this please.. ^.^) (
Hey guys long time no talk!! Itachi here~ I've been very busy with life and many things are moving towards a hopeful bright path. I am going to start working full time soon and have been doing a lot of prepping to be in full takeover mode once I begin this upcoming month... However, considering that gaming is one of my big passions in life, I can always make some time for it on my free time, especially if its exceptional.. Something, truly as exceptional like Undertale. ;)
What initially attracted me to Undertale was the soundtrack that I heard in one of my favorite twitch streamer's outro videos on Youtube. As I listened to the song, I noticed that there was a somewhat dark undertone. Also with a name like Snowy, I assumed that there was some form of sadness attached to the game. I am a huge sucker for dark, and sad undertoned games such as Zelda, Majora's Mask which I found many similarities with by the way!
If you guys are a fan of that game, You MUST check this one out!! Moving on... Inspired and curious I decided to look the game up on Google.. Much to my surprise it had an overwhelming amount of Positive reviews and seemed to have a large cult following. I decided to torrent the game off Piratebay... Regrettably, now that I've played it I seriously wish I had just bought the game off Steam.. I still might. Shout out to the creator, Toby Fox for creating such a beautiful game that will definitely stay in my top 5 of all time favorite games...
After experiencing the game for a while I noticed that after the first combat sequence, I thought it was going to be like Pokemon battles, where each player has one turn to attack.. However, I noticed that there was an "Act" button where instead of fighting you can resort to resolving in a pacifist outcome which I highly recommend and an option to kill which i highly do NOT recommend ;).
There are also many puzzles and easter eggs within the game that make it that much more refreshing to play. Once again, I can NOT emphasize how amazing this soundtrack really is... I unashamedly saved 4 to 5 songs on my Spotify playlist ;). (Which I can prove below LOL!)
Yes, the graphics can be considered offputting to some of you and a turn-off. However, I ask you to have a "don't judge a book by its cover" approach to this game. Rather for me it was very nostalgic and brought me back to the days when I was a child playing with these graphics. Heh heh...
In conclusion.. Well I don't want to say too much without spoiling the game. Please check this game out as I believe that it restored a lot energy within me if that makes sense.. The game had humor and stirred many emotions within me.. How can a game like this have so much influence you ask? I believe that's something that you yourself should find out. ;) This game was refreshing for the SOUL... I feel once again invigorated in life for experiencing something so beautiful! I know I must sound naggy at this point but I wouldnt be hammering it so hard if it wasn't THIS good!! Anyways guys, hope I brought something of value to you guys!! As always, thanks for reading this guys and I would appreciate any upvote or comments!! Itachi out~
