Hello there you shameless self-promos! It’s time for a very special post, another Undertale No Food. These only come out every couple months, take a lot of work to write, and are received relatively averagely, so I hope someone out there still likes these. If you want to actually understand the story and what’s happened up to this point, I encourage you to read these posts as well.
Today I’ll be trekking through most of Waterfall on my adventure to escape the Underground!
Starting off where I last saved, I talk to Sans and he invites me to go to Grillby’s. I oblige and find myself in a zoomed-in conversation with him.
I agree and trek back to Waterfall. I walked through multiple rooms and came across a hidden camera in a waterfall (not the area, actual waterfalls).
I keep walking and find myself in a room with lots of space to hide in. It also looks pretty cool.
Halfway through, I stop though because, above me, Papyrus is having a one-sided conversation with someone in lots of armor.
Once both of them have left, I continue through the bushes and am confronted by Monster Kid, an avid fan of Undyne (the armored figure). I forgot to take a screenshot of this, sorry.
In the next room, there’s a puzzle with lilypads that’s pretty interesting.
On my way out, I encounter Aaron!
I dodge most of his attacks and spare him.
In the next room, I find myself with a more interesting application of the lilypad puzzle.
After making my way across the bridge, I get a call from Papyrus about a tutu I picked up earlier.
After that odd phone call, I walk into the next room and read all of this lore.
I walk into the next room, with my shadow dripping onto the floor.
All of a sudden, FWOOSH!
Undyne is back, and this time I don’t have a bush to hide in!
So I walk as fast as the game lets me…
Sustaining minimum damage, I make it into a room of weird bushes for me to hide in. But Undyne follows me anyways!
Luckily she picks up Monster Kid (pictured above) instead of me, and I live.
Both I and Monster Kid walk out of the bushes.
As I enter the next room, Monster Kid doesn’t follow me.
*a few moments later*
Continuing through the caverns, I get another call from Papyrus.
He hung up, and I decided I wouldn’t change my clothes. In the next room, I found one more lore sign.
In the next room, I encounter a friendly octopus who doesn’t have enough water to live comfortably.
They talk for a little bit about how all of their friends moved to an aquarium in a big city because the water where they all used to live is draining.
In the next room, I find, surprise, more lore signs.
Continuing on my way, I find a little statue that’s getting rained on and give it an umbrella.
It starts to hum out a tune, and on a piano in the other room, I play the song and a door opens in the wall.
I try to take the artifact, but my inventory is suddenly mysteriously filled with dogs.
I try to “use” one of the dogs, but it absorbs the artifact and flies away.
I keep walking on the main path and take this pretty cool shot.
A few seconds of walking more, and I stumble into Monster Kid again.
He starts to follow me.
A few seconds of silence pass.
We keep walking and find a really nice view of the castle in the next room.
We soon encounter a ledge that’s too high for either of us to make it on our own, so he volunteers to let me use his shoulders.
I keep going like he said and…
SUDDENLY, MORE LORE.
In the next room, I used the savepoint and called it a day.
