Undertale Creator's New Game Also Has an Uninstalling Bug

Delta Rune is messing with some files, and not on purpose.

Toby Fox just surprise released their new game Delta Rune, but there appears to be a problem with its uninstaller deleting everything in the same folder. Fox is now warning players to avoid using the uninstaller until the problem is fixed.

A day after a bug in Bethesda's Fallout 76 PC beta began deleting the game via the launcher, Toby Fox's new game, Delta Rune, appears to have a similar issue with file deletion. Except instead of just uninstalling the game, the uninstaller deletes the entire directory the uninstaller is in.

When the problem first arose, some players wondered if this was intentional given the meta nature of Fox's previous work, Undertale. But Fox says that they used Game Maker Studio 2's default uninstaller so the problem could lie somewhere else.

Deltarune was teased yesterday by Fox on Twitter and while many were expecting an announcement Fox up and launched Delta Rune. We downloaded it ourselves and you should expect further coverage once we've played it. After all, we're big fans of Undertale and consider it one of the finest RPGs.
