Spend five minutes talking to me about video games, and I’ll inevitably start talking about Undertale. Though I was late to the Undertale party, only playing it last year, something about it… changed me. Maybe it’s because the novel I wrote during NaNo last year, right after playing and heavily inspired by it, was how I got my agent; or maybe it’s because Papyrus and Sans speak to me on a spiritual level. Regardless, when Sidequest writer Elvie shared Undertale’s Halloween tweet, linking over to the new Deltarune website, I immediately downloaded the game.

Sidequest’s former managing editor Naseem Jamnia used to do sciencey things, but they now slam their keyboard and call it art. Their debut novella, THE BRUISING OF QILWA, introduced their queernorm, Persian-inspired secondary world; their middle grade horror debut SLEEPAWAY comes out in 2025.
