Deltarune Chapter 3 Development Update Shared By Toby Fox

Toby Fox, the creator of Deltarune, has shared a progress update on Chapter 3 of the game.

The update comes via the Undertale/Deltarune newsletter, where subscribers can obtain news and updates about both games. In the June 29th issue, Fox revealed that Chapter 3 of the game is growing closer to completion, with the team now working on the “final overworld area”. Fox also mentioned that this chapter will be a bit different compared to the previous installments, with a focus on “unusual gameplay elements”.

As was the case last time, we’re focusing on Chapter 3. However, there are a few people working on pieces of later chapters, such as bullet patterns or puzzles.

As for Chapter 3, we’re finally creating the final overworld area. You could think of it like the “Queen’s Castle” or “Card Castle”, but for this chapter. With this complete, the chapter will finally be playable all the way through…! (Fun Fact: I composed the song for this area in 2016…)

This Chapter is made of many different pieces… so it’s been hard to understand exactly how everything was turning out. Now that things are clearer, I just need to roll over the entire game with a steamroller and crush out all the bumps. There may be things to add, things to fix, or things to remove… but, many pieces have been quite polished already, so it won’t be too bad.

As you can tell, this chapter is shaping up to be a pretty strange one. I mostly focused on unusual gameplay elements, and it’s not too heavy on the story. Since it’s so frivolous, I feel a bit self-conscious about it… but, at least I got to try something different!

Anyway, Chapter 4 will be a much more standard chapter!

Deltarune Chapters 1 and 2 are already available to play for free on Switch, and Fox has previously detailed plans to release Chapters 3 to 5 all at once. Stay tuned for more updates as they come.
