The official Undertale Twitter account began acting strangely this morning when the account’s profile picture and username suddenly went dark. A few minutes after doing so, a new string of tweets appeared which indicated that something related to either Undertale or the game’s developer Toby Fox is going down tomorrow morning.
A new string of 13 tweets from the Twitter account conveyed a message that stated fans should return 24 hours from now to see something that the account wants to show us. Something, that it says, we will “find very, very interesting.”
The full message when put together said the following:
WELCOME. HAVE YOU BEEN LOOKING FOR ME? HOW WONDERFUL. I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR YOU AS WELL. I HAVE SOMETHING SOMETHING I WANT TO SHOW YOU. SOMETHING I THINK YOU WILL FIND VERY, VERY, INTERESTING. BUT IT IS NOT COMPLETE YET. NO IT IS FAR FROM COMPLETE. THUS I HAVE A SMALL FAVOUR TO ASK OF YOU. RETURN HERE IN  HOURS. AT THAT TIME, I WILL ASK YOU A FEW QUESTIONS. THEN USING YOUR RESPONSES WE WILL APPROACH ITS REALIZATION. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME. I WILL BE IN CONTACT AGAIN SOON.
Undertale’s developer Toby fox then quote-tweeted the message and provided a bit more clarity. Fox said that he wants to make something new, but he wants feedback from fans first. He stated that for those who completed Undertale, they will want to check out the game tomorrow. Unfortunately for those who have Undertale on console platforms, Fox said that only the PC and Mac versions will be compatible with whatever it is that he has planned.
If I had to take a guess on what Fox could be doing, I’d say he’s looking for feedback before beginning development on his next project. Fox’s next project following Undertale has been talked about for awhile now considering Undertale originally launched over three years ago in 2015.
The only thing I’m not really certain about with tomorrow’s development is how it involves Undertale directly. The fact that Fox wants fans to access Undertale on PC and Mac makes me think that it could still involve the game somehow. Maybe some sort of DLC? Or a sequel? It’s hard to say since details are so sparse, but in the end, Fox could just be using Undertale as a means of gathering a survey from fans. By allowing only those who have finished the game to participate in this sort of questionnaire, he gets a better idea of what his real fans would want in a follow-up game.
Regardless of what tomorrow brings, I’m really interested to learn more about just what’s going on here. Undertale is hands-down one of the best games of the past five years and whatever Toby Fox might create next, I’m down for.
For those who completed UNDERTALE it’s really important that you check @UNDERTALE 24 hours from now.
I want to make something new, and it all begins with your feedback.
A Windows PC / MacOSX PC is needed. https://t.co/N1IJLyiswy
