So all respect for developers is gone. Cool.
Ok, saw 1:45 and am now just downloading it to discover on my own.

Ahhh, good to see the cult of Undertale is already being obnoxious about this thing.
@zuldim: Don't be so dismissive. On the very web page that you download this from there is a request to not discuss the game for a day. Just one day.
@auzurafi: who cares
He put the game out. Once you put the game out, it's out. People who are interested (like me!) can choose not to engage with this stuff until they've gotten a chance to play it.

Hey apparently the uninstaller for DELTARUNE just deletes the entire directory the uninstaller is in. Depending on where you installed it, this could have some consequences. I recommend you don't use the uninstaller. — tobyfox (@tobyfox) October 31, 2018

Who could have predicted Toby Fox was Todd Howard all along?
Come on, guys. Not you, too.
As someone who participated in the MurderMurderMcMurder Ending for Undertale, I support the existence of this video.
"Wait, that's not me" guys you have got to read the text on the screen, you're KILLING ME
@zuldim: wow. I was gonna say using the word cult to describe some fans of a game a bit harsh but you might be right.
The shame is, I like Undertale, and look forward to playing Deltarune.
Not even 24 hours ?

I hate fandom.
HALF LIFE 3 CONFIRMED, YOU'RE HOLDING OUT ON US.
Also if anyone is actually upset, Ben didn't see the warning on the website until after he recorded this video.
the reason everyone is saying that respecting the warning might be nice to do (besides basic compassion for other people) is because something very similar happened with undertale, where toby fox requested people not post about a certain secret for a period of time or else he wouldn't continue to update it. and people posted about it, and he never updated it. yes obviously you can't stop every person on twitter from talking about something but i would hope that at least the press would be able to restrain themselves for just one day

Yeah, given how much respect games press normally gives to press embargos, it's a little shady tossing up an immediate video for something the developer essentially asked the press to hold off on for a day. Sure, it's an impossible ask to prevent any discussion given that it's widely available, but waiting a day doesn't seem like a big thing either.
1. The existence of a Toby Fox game called "Deltarune" is not a spoiler.
2. It sounds to me like the person you should be mad at is named Toby Fox, then.
I love how the game tells them their character will be discarded and they completely ignore it and wonder who this Kris person is.
the sprite work is so good! if this is a full blown sequel, dang.
@davekap: "Darcsen" part two
Psh, listen to the wishes of the guy who is giving this game away for free? Fuck him, am I right? Who does he think he is?
You're all children and I hope you feel ashamed.
Lmao you people can't be serious

What exactly is going on in this comments section? They uploaded the video too early for an embargo or what's the problem?

@deathpooky: @hidamari: @cheshirestray: @auzurafi: @dekkadekkadekka:https://twitter.com/PackBenPack/status/1057734462128058368Y'all need to dial it down like 3 notches, this is ridiculous. Ben already clarified that missing the "embargo" was an honest mistake and that he'd gladly remove the video if Toby took issue with it. I did the exact same thing. It's in a list of bullet points starting with an epilepsy warning, so I'm sure plenty of people overlooked it. Furthermore, it says we are "advised" to refrain from discussing it, not that Toby's heart will break if anyone posts a video and he'll need an army to crusade on his behalf. Chill.
@sessh: On the download site, there's a bullet point amidst a series of technical warnings that reads "FOR PUBLIC SAFETY, YOU ARE ADVISED TO REFRAIN FROM DISCUSSION OF THE PROGRAM FOR 24 HOURS," which has caused a bunch of uptight fans to shit on folks who missed it and excitedly shared the good news of this game's existence.
Man, this looks good. Imma have to finish my playthrough of undertale and then take a stab at this. Thanks Ben and Brad!
Wow, am I missing something here? Why are people so mad?
I don't know man, i just looked at the website, and given the strange, in-fiction presentation of the whole thing, I wouldn't assume the "24 hours" thing is meant to be taken super literally.
Like, 24 hours from when? There's no dates on the page. What if you didn't even know it launched today?
A fanbase crying for no valid reason? Sounds about right.
@trivitaal: You would be surprised by the Undertale community. People think moba communities are awful but it barely holds a wet match compared to Undertale "fans."
@cheshirestray: For a game based around being a nice person its fans sure are a weird bunch
Edit: Giant Bomb and its staff are members of the games press! Their main job is not to act as Undertale fans and it is their job to report on & play this kind of stuff.
@sessh: There's no actual embargo, the developer of the game asked people to not talk about it for 24 hours and then released it publicly...
No one should care that the press is talking about this freely and they definitely shouldn't care about a bullet point on that webpage.Besides, I'm pretty sure that specific line is in there just for shits and giggles to stir up the cult. Toby Fox didn't think for a second that people wouldn't talk about this, unless he's a moron.
Undertale is terrible
Just wanted to point out that after-release embargos arent a thing.... If youre a no-spoiler absolutist, I advise to not click on the video.. Why is the Internet like this?...
Hey, here's a thought - if you're so concerned about not seeing anything about this until tomorrow, then come back tomorrow.
Happy b day , and don’t watch the video for 24 hours if it bothers you so much
Does this count as discussion? I mean why are people upset about them uploading a video of the first 30 ish minutes. There's no theorizing or spoilers outside of the video besides "this game exists". It's not like Ben is tweeting about who his favorite character is or what happens. The "discussion" of this is taking place in the vacuum of the video. The only people getting "spoiled" are the ones watching it.
There was no NDA or embargo, the dev just put a message on the website to not discuss it for 24 hours as a taste maker/setting the atmosphere for the game. It was just part of his whole cryptic twitter teases he did prior.
The game was a teaser demo for a really early access game and was released to give tobyfox some feedback and impressions, which it did. Not asking for discussions while you're wanting feedback seems dumb. It's a publicity stunt that worked.
What would not talking about a game for 24 hours serve? If it was pre-release I would understand but it was released and open to everyone.

Deltarune is Undertale backwards!
On a side note, a small indie studio probably can't be too upset about exposure on a major games website.
