Undertale’s Patch Fixes Bugs, Contains Hidden Content

Cult indie hit Undertale got its first update yesterday, and data miners have already made some interesting discoveries. Though the designer previously stated that the updates to the game would only fix buys, Undertale fans have found that the patch adds new dialogue and secrets to unravel.

The full rundown of added and updated content is available on the Underminers subreddit — the community of Undertale excavators who have dug deep into the title since its release last fall. Minor changes include stat changes for bosses and other NPCs.

Certain glitches have been fixed as well, notable those that affected the game’s “pacifist” ending, an especially difficult puzzle has been made easier to solve and blue attacks have been adjusted so that colourblind fans of the game can see them better.

But the most exciting part of the update is the additional lines of dialogue to be found from both talking to characters and interacting with objects. The best part is that the update’s code seems to suggest that a character only speculated upon is indeed real.

WARNING: UNDERTALE SPOILERS AHEAD.

Gaster was thought to be the long-lost brother of sidekicks Papyrus and Sans. The patched version apparently grants access to what fans think is the character. You’ll have to luck out to have the requisite stats to actually meet Gaster, but it is easier to encounter the dialogue fans have claimed confirms his existence and background. Possible hints to the character’s backstory are revealed through newly updated dialogue in certain areas.

Fox responded to the data mining of his game on Twitter. When asked whether the efforts of the Underminers resulted in the lack of overt new content in this version of Undertale, he denied those claims.

Ultimately, Fox has accepted how some fans choose to explore Undertale, extending and expanding the indie RPG’s experiences as full as possible.

If it weren’t such a good game, the fans would be so rabid to data-mine the game. So Fox can take solace in that.

If you haven’t played Undertale yet, shame on you.
