Undertale the friendly rpg where everyone noone has to die.

If you haven't tried Undertale yet, well get on it. The demos RIGHT here. http://undertale.com/demo.htm  Seriously if you consider looking into this, the demos the best spoiler free way.

I don't really have much to discuss without spoiling the plot, some might find the plot to be pretty cheesy but I kind of like that about it. Maybe I'll post some spoiler tagged criticisms on it if there's even a single soul out there that cares.
I like the battle system, it's like a shoot-em-up (some disagree on this though for some reason), RPG hybrid, where strangely, you don't shoot, or have to attack.

Yeah I think achieving this is virtually impossible for any game. It's just one of those games I can really call an experience.

I finished the demo.

Even though it seems to embody pretty much everything I dislike about western indie games (quirky, ironic humor mixed with ostensibly unironic moralism; self-conscious witticism that distracts from any sincere storytelling; derision of bad game tropes without actually fixing them or making new, better ones (especially apparent in the demo); Earthbound fetishism; and an undying will for the medium to be validated as "art" by both insiders and, more worryingly, outsiders, and therefore a de-emphasis on enjoyment (whoever says art shouldn't strive to be enjoyable deserves all the packaged enjoyment of an un-anesthetized lobotomy)), I'll still play it if you're recommending it. I will probably even like it.

That said, I really think it should be free.

I don't know why you'd keep playing if you pretty much know what to expect. But hey, I'd be interested to hear more of your input if you do play the full version.

I put the qualifier there because I expect the game to confound my expectations.

If I was blatantly wrong on any of those points I'd hope you'd correct me.

i must have either done something horribly wrong or done something the developer didn't expect because i can't beat the game. i'm stuck at the end and i am 99.99% sure there's nothing i can do to get to it, so i guess i'm done with it.

it had some funny and cute moments. the backstory reveal was pretty compelling. but overall i mostly had no idea what the fuck was going on. none of the subplots in the game seemed to connect to eachother except the very beginning and end. and in the ending i got, i did exactly what was expected of me (which is also the only thing you can do) and got a game over anyway.

and now i have no reason to trust game recommendations even though i've only spent a mere $16 and change on the last two titles i was told to purchase i didn't really like either of them. i should've stuck to my gut on this one. i'm giving it a lower score than i should because i literally cannot beat it and i'm not sitting through it again. 4/10 would not recommend. solid soundtrack though

i cant really find anyway to say how to beat the game without spoiling anything major but since you say you're done i can tell you.

btw to anyone who thinks that the ending mechanics of Undertale have never been done before look up the VN "Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi" and i doubt that was the first game to do it either
