Toby Fox Shares Brief Game Development Update, Says It’s “Going Well”
The famous Undertale and Deltarune creator Toby Fox has shared a very brief game development update via social media.
After showing off some of his concept art, he mentioned how his game development was “going well”. He’s got good feelings about it, and also noted how he’s been getting more and more people to help out recently.
We’re guessing he’s referring to the remaining Deltarune chapters. The second chapter was released on the Switch eShop for free last September, following a Nintendo Direct presentation. He’s currently working on additional chapters, and up to seven chapters are reportedly on the way.
In a previous update, Fox also mentioned how he hired a team of people to assist him during the development of Chapter 2:
“The time it took to develop “Chapter 2” itself was actually a year and a half. There were a lot of things before we could start full-scale development. However, three years is long… I feel a little sorry for making everyone wait so long…
I programmed “Chapter 1” and “UNDERTALE” all by myself, but now I can’t program for a long time because I hurt my wrist. So, “Chapter 2″ is about 90% programmed by another member of the team. Yes, I’ve become a director from this time (imagine a professional dog in a beret).”
With development going well, hopefully it means Chapters 3, 4 and 5 will be released sooner rather than later. When they do arrive, they’ll apparently released together, and at that point, players will be required to purchase the game. Here’s what he had to say during a blog update last September:
“My next goal is to complete Chapters 3, 4 and 5 for next time. Then, at that time I will ask for people to buy the game, at the price of the first 5 chapters (including 1 and 2). I don’t know the price yet, but it’s definitely going to cost more than UNDERTALE.”
