Preliminary information

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to download Undertale , I think it might interest you to have some more information about this role-playing game.

Well, Undertale was essentially made by a single person, namely US independent programmer Toby Fox . The latter took care of all aspects of the game, except some design content (which he delegated to Temmie Chang). It is, therefore, a production with a very low budget, which, however, immediately managed to conquer the hearts of the players, even the Italian ones (despite the fact that the title is officially available only in English).

Undertale was developed using Game Maker Studio , a tool accessible to all, often used for non-professional projects. Despite this, he became famous for his narrative gimmicks, with the protagonist Fox who very often breaks the fourth wall during the game, talking directly with the player and increasing the involvement of the latter.

As for the cost, the game is paid and is often available at a price below 10 euros. Having said that too, let’s take action and see, together, how to download Undertale on the various platforms.

How to download Undertale on PC

Undertale was born as a title for PC, so let’s start from the latter and see, together, how to download the game on Windows .

Before proceeding with the installation of Undertale, it is good that you take into account the minimum and recommended requirements of the game, in order to compare them with the specifications of your PC and avoid unpleasant surprises. In any case, Undertale is a very “light” video game and therefore even dated configurations manage to hold it up pretty well. Here are the minimum requirements.

  • Operating system:Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10;
  • RAM:2GB;
  • Video card:128MB;
  • Memory:200MB of available space.

The first thing to do is to connect the PS4 to the internet via Ethernet cable or wireless network. In the first case, you just have to connect the console to the router via an Ethernet cable and that’s it. In the second, you need to instead go to the top toolbar and press the X button on the controller on the Settings icon (the toolbox). After that, you need to go to Network> Set up Internet connection> Use Wi-Fi> Typical , select the Wi-Fi network to connect the PlayStation 4 to and type in the relative access key .

At this point, you need to log into the PlayStation Network . If you do not have a PSN account yet, you can create it by going to Settings> PlayStation Network / Account Management and selecting first the item Log in to PlayStation Network and then that New PlayStation Network user? Create an account . After that you have to follow the on-screen directions, as explained in my tutorial on how to access PlayStation Network .
