"You are carrying too many dogs" is one of my favorite gags in all of video games.

Default This is Temmie Village, a village filled with Temmies. Enjoy the world of Temmies.

  • Man, I could listen to this load screen music all day.
  • I guess I'll continue clockwise?
  • Okay, so this screen has an innocuous-looking target dummy and some kind of... evil fish house, and I'm not certain which I should be more scared of.
  • Floor ghost definitely has a bachelor pad. I know it well!
  • Let's see what's in the fridge; my money is on a bottle of ketchup, a loaf of bread, and some cheese slices.
  • "After a great meal I like to lie on the ground and feel like garbage." Actually me IRL.
  • And now we're on the floor. I guess we live here now.
  • I can feel the cosmos.
  • I think that floor ghost might be my ex-wife.
  • This "Spookwave" CD feels like the intro music to an 80s cartoon with a Frankenstein and/or Dracula.
  • A snail named "Sam Byool". I feel like I'm missing a joke (which usually means a music reference).
  • ! Snail races!
  • So I'm guessing this is just a funny way to throw away 10g?
  • (Three races later.) I'm going with "yes".
  • Whoops, I forgot to call my best bro to ask about these screens! Apparently the spooky fish house is Undyne's pad, which is what I suspected.
  • Oh my god, that crazy turtle archaeologist sprite.
  • I tried to sell, fully expecting it to fail, and boy howdy did it, but the tantalizing possibility of selling in "Temmie Village" has been dangled in front of me.
  • Calling it now: I will not be able to Sell in Temmie Village.
  • And that's apparently a "Delta Rune". Sequel hook!
  • Hrm. Interesting stuff for sale here. Downgrade weapons and armour that sound like they extend my I-frames, and a consumable that increases my speed, which might do more harm than good.
  • And now a "Temmie" has appeared, which looks like a meme given flesh.
  • And, given the name, may be my ticket to this mysterious village if I play my cards right.
  • Ahahah, I flexed and Aaron showed up instead. If this was my one chance to find that village then I probably blew it. >_< (worth it)
  • Ahh, jello mould is evolving!
  • Ahaha, I didn't hug it and it appreciated my respect of its boundaries.
  • Ah, some kind of dark room with mushroom-lit paths.
  • I wandered off the trail and was immediately rewarded for it. Let's keep poking around...
  • A hidden passage off-screen. So is this the critical path, or not...
  • I think I stumbled into the critical path first. I'm going to go back and explore the previous screen more and see how many exits I can find.
  • A-ha! Given what I am hearing and seeing, if this isn't the Temmie village then I'll eat my hat.
  • In a game that is already very weird, this place takes the cake.
  • A mushroom just danced at me and told me that I've lived a life of sin.
  • That would have been a good title for this thread.
  • I would very much appreciate if this person's face would remain firmly affixed to its body.
  • Ahaha, they only sell one item, at four different prices.
  • If I had the money, I would absolutely put this kid through college. Alas.
  • Oh wow, and I can actually sell. Time to go raid my storage box for old gear.
  • And the starting stick is worth 150g!
  • Ahaha, and I'm driving that price up further.
  • Fortunately, the Dog Residue only sells for 2g, and I'm too lazy to break the game's economy at that price.
  • I bought some of the "Temmie flakes". This village's entire economy is based on torn up construction paper.
  • I think I'm just going to back out of this village slowly while taking care to maintain eye contact at all times.

Default Descending to another plane

  • Oh hey, the previous screen is still in the state I left it. Bonus!
  • I fed the flakes to the Temmie. Hopefully it won't choke on them!
  • Ah, okay, and now the path to the exit I took earlier is fully lit. Looks like I did indeed stumble onto the critical path immediately. It is my gift, and my curse.
  • I was only able to find one exit from this next screen. I hope I didn't miss anything!
  • And now a quickly darkening hallway. Is it Undyne o'clock again?
  • lol, thanks kid!
  • A bridge... I don't trust it.
  • I made another friend! And this one has skin!
  • Ooo, time for back-story! ...or not?
  • Undyne is telling me what a remorseless killer I am, presumably because I tripped a flag when I killed dungeon mom? That was just a one-time thing, I swear! You just watched me save a little girl!
  • Ooo, save point.
  • Uh oh, my heart is green now. I don't know what that means, but I bet nothing good!
  • Okay, so we're playing DDR now? I think?
  • This just keeps getting faster. Uh oh.
  • "The bullets get unfair." lol
  • Ahaha, that yellow arrow cheated!
  • The word "Escape" just showed up in red. Is the game telling me to run? I feel like she's just about to flip her lid, though...
  • Her pattern stopped changing, and I'm out of healing, so I guess it's time to book it?
  • Hrm. I wonder if I had to go through all of that to run, or if I could have just done it from the start...
  • lol, bad timing, Papyrus! Although it's nice of her to wait while I take this call...
  • Okay, so looks like this chase is heading to Hotland.
  • I hope my snowman piece will survive here!
  • So obviously we're getting some water for Undyne. That's happening.
  • Hrm, guarding an elevator, apparently. A shortcut to previous areas later, perhaps?
  • Speaking of shortcuts, I bet this boat takes my back to the empty river screen I saw earlier! Probably a good chance to re-stock.
  • Yup. Oh, hey, I can go all the way back to Snowdin, even.
  • Let's see if anything has changed back in town!
  • Ah, yup, looks like new dialogue for everyone.
  • Ha, the boat turned into a running cat for the trip back! And it dropped a hint as to the location of Temmie Village, in case I hadn't found it yet.
  • Alright, let's see if Undyne is home.
  • No chance to talk to Undyne, I guess, but Papyrus is a good bonus prize!
  • Okay, time to check out this spooky lab.
  • I'm on TV! And yet another bachelor pad, it looks like.
  • It's Doctor Dinosaur! She seems nice.
  • a-HA, she's been the one watching me through the cameras.
  • lol, I'm about to fight a homicidal robot, aren't I?
  • . . .
  • So this is happening.
  • As a big game show fan, I am very down for this.
  • Ehehe, she gives me a happy thumbs up when I get the answer correct.
  • These questions are easy for now, but I'm fully expecting them to turn bullshit unfair.
  • Ahaha, yup, called that one.
  • Ahahaha, fuck, that ID the monster question. Reminds of that Pokemon episode where the answer was "A Jigglypuff, seen from above".
  • He's hitting me for exactly half of my HP each time, but I'm unclear if that's max or current, so I'm using a healing item after each attack. I hope I'm not wasting these!
  • Ha, with the description of how she's been watching me and commenting on my progress, I just realized that Dr. Alphys has essentially been watching me Let's Play Undertale.
  • And now my phone's been upgraded to be a storage box! Neato!
  • lol, and now I'm getting Facebook status updates.
  • Aww, this little lava guy thinks it's helping.
  • Ooo, we hi-tech now.
  • With some bitchin' music to go with it.
  • "Tsunderplane gets in the way! Not on purpose or anything." Fuck me, I'm dead. I can't. Fuck.
  • And that hat.

Default Sweeps Week

  • Man, I was almost dead for real. That fight was hard!
  • I just used a healing item with a save point just off-screen to the left. /facepalm
  • Alphys phone anxiety too real.
  • And now I have a frying pan.
  • I think I just solved that puzzle by accident, but I think I get it now?
  • Ah, yeah, I wouldn't have been able to stumble my way through this second one as easily.
  • Another dark room. Boss time again?
  • OMG, I'm on the set of a cooking show, aren't I?
  • Yussssss
  • I love everything about this.
  • Ha, I tried to leave and a laser appeared.
  • Alphys is watching me while eating chips in her PJs. Sorry Sans, but I found a new spirit animal.
  • And now suddenly top-down shooter.
  • I am very bad at dodging the pies.
  • No elevator music? Undertale, I thought I knew you.
  • Hahaha, good switch timing puzzle.
  • Christ, what fresh hell is this? This is entirely too many arrows.
  • I am super stuck on this puzzle and it's making me feel super dumb. It seems clear that the solution involves breaking out of the puzzle in an intermediate state and then looping back, since that's a thing I can do, but I seem to be forced to reset anyway...
  • I guess I got it? I was either over-thinking it or under-thinking it, and I'm not sure which...
  • I just polished this guy's armour and he took it off?
  • Awww, I just helped these two find love.
  • ...and another dark room. How many TV show genres are left?
  • Ahahaha, I love it.
  • I'm reading everything on this news ticker, obviously.
  • "Historic News Ticker Headline Shortage", lol
  • "That dog's a bomb!"
  • I defused all of those bombs first try, but I think the timer slowed down for me near the end?
  • This second spider bake sale seems slightly overpriced.
  • There was a cactus in the middle of that conveyor that I think I could have look at... I'm going back.
  • ...worth it.
  • Hahaha, Tsunderplane is jealous of the other enemy.
  • A spider cave? :-/
  • "I heard that they hate spiders!" You heard right!
  • Dangit, I see a big black symmetrical space back there, and if spider eyes and/or a giant spider appear I'm gonna be grumpy.
  • Okay, this I can deal with.
  • Ooo, new music!
  • Holy shit, this battle just went completely bat-shit (spider-shit?) and I love it.
  • Did... did I just win because I went back and bought that spider cider at the start? phew
  • And now the FF6 opera is happening.
  • Ha, and the puzzle from way back at the start returns.
  • Oh shit, a boss fight. I've still not had a chance to recover from the last one!
  • ! Bullets! Time for pew-pew!
  • Well, none of this seems suspicious in the slightest. COUGH
  • And it's time for another Sans dinner date. I'll be keeping a close eye on my condiments this time.
  • Sans keeping it real.
  • Phew, finally, a save point.
  • These ladies in the alley sell a key... I guess I'll have to save up a little.
  • I was hoping to finish tonight, because I can tell I'm close, but it looks like a bit more left than I thought, so I guess it'll have to wait! I think I'll go sell some old gear in Temmie Village before I pick this back up to see if I can afford that key.

That music in the spider fight has to be my favorite track in the game.

This was kind of funny, because they both use the same melody (as does at least one other battle theme).

Something a lot of people miss is that Alyphs gives you hints during the game, watch her if you replay this.

All the regular boss fights play around with the same melody, right?

Well, now you people made me listen to the UT soundtrack all over again.
Thanks!

And yeah, not all regular boss fights but Ghost Fight, Dummy! and Spider Dance are indeed variations of the same melody.

They're all great, tho.
And, errr...may be a spoiler so let me point you to the base UT thread.

Oh, that might as well be, I have a pretty bad ear myself: I've had to listen carefully to Dummy! and Spider Dance back to back to find the same base melody in both so I may have missed it elsewhere.

No, you're right. The Wiki has a pages on leitmotifs and confirms that Ghost Fight, Dummy! and Spider Dance are variations but not the rest.

Spider Dance bothers me though, because, as great as it is, it's Napstablook's motif, i.e. the spooktune (or not, that's a different one altogether? huh), which for ghost fights it makes sense... but why use the same motif for a spider?

I demand coherence, dammit!

It's the theme of the ghost of every spider you've ever killed coming for revenge. Or bribes.

The real "screw with your head" in the soundtrack is that the normal battle theme is a remix of the Temmie theme.

Other things that slap: this thread. It's the first one I check when I log on to Talking Time. Keep feeding us your delicious thoughts, JBear.
