oh fun fact: the Fun Gang existed in 2014-2015 (warning: ending spoilers for DELTARUNE and maybe even spoilers for later chapters??) which means that Undertale's "fun" values were almost definitely a reference to Deltarune from the start

So, do you think Asgore's landlord "C" is a new character? If so, why did it not write its whole name?

I can't think of any old characters it could be, so probably someone new.  Maybe unimportant too, but I'm curious if they'll factor into the dynamic between Asgore and Toriel.  I'm really curious what awful thing happened that caused them to split up in this world, since he probably hasn't been murdering kids this time.

Actually he never did it last time either, and that actually part of her anger, wasn't it?

I could be badly misremembering, but I'm pretty sure the hallway of coffins in his basement were filled with kids he killed for their souls, since he needed seven to have the power to break the seal and let the monsters go.  I thought Toriel hated him because he was willing to kill innocent kids for that.

They also had personality clashes I think, but I think the murdering part is what broke the proverbial camel's back.  Well, that plus Chara and Asriel dying.

He was too soft to do what needed to be done, basically. He could have eaten the first human soul to show up, use that power to cross the barrier, and kill 6 more humans on the surface, gaining enough power to break the barrier. But he didn't want to go on a killing spree, so instead he just waited, and had humans killed as they fell down.

Ah, yes, you're right.  Wow, my memory is even worse than I thought.

That vaguely reminds me of how weird the wording was for the fate of the monsters in the "true lab."  Alphys injected monsters that "had fallen down" with determination, but... uh... come to think of it, even if that was a cute euphemism for monsters that had an unfortunate accident and died, I'm kind of wondering how she injected dust with determination.

Carol Holiday, the mayor of the town, wife of Rudy Holiday, mother of Noelle Holiday, the real main character.

I don't know if this information was in the lab or it had to be obtained via datamining, but there is/was a lab console that explained what falling down was. Basically it's dying of natural causes. When Monsters get too old or sick they fall into a coma. Then in a matter of weeks they properly die and turn into dust. Alphys was basically looking for a cure for death.

That was in the game, I remember it.

Anybody know how long the turnaround on episode 2 is expected to be?  I figure a lot of the time for this one must've been building the mechanics, I'm hoping there'll be a faster pace considering the length of the game, hopefully most of the backend stuff stays the same and it's just a matter of writing and assets.

Toby tweeted about it shortly after the release.
