People keep asking me to describe Undertale (which isn’t surprising since I keep recommending it) but the best I can do is its original tagline, “a friendly RPG where nobody has to die”, followed by “Um, it’s clever and cute and punny. There’s a monster called ‘Tsunderplane’.” If you know what ‘tsundere’ is and that doesn’t convince you I don’t know what else to say.
The tagline’s usually enough to at least intrigue people, but what else can I be saying?
EDIT: Oh, and it has great music.
EDIT 2: It came up today, and someone asked “But can you pet things?” I’m pleased to say that petting is in fact a CORE GAME MECHANIC. …okay, it’s not “core”. But it is in there!
