Wait, how can you dislike AUs when Glitchtale is an AU. (What happens in season 1 can't happen in the game, so yes, it is an AU).
but I based it within the limitations of the game
Yesterday I heard from a friend who’s game closed out of nowhere while he was doing a genocide route and he couldn’t open the game again until he deleted the save files and had to start again.
Of course that’s a bug, but if you look at it from a game perspective you may come up with the idea “maybe a character caused the error to happen because he/she didn’t want the genocide route to be completed and made that occur”
Same thing in glitchtale, I did that happen because I thought to myself “I wish I could reset in the middle of the battle… but wouldn’t that cause a glitch?” And Megalomaniac came up and I just developed the idea from there.
Do I change the character’s personalities?
Do I change the way the world functions?
Do I try to fit the characters’ personalities into my own fanfic ideas?
no, I don’t. I just changed the outcome of a situation, and acted accordingly to it’s consequences.
I’d love to call glitchtale an Alternate Timeline, and not an Alternate Universe which is where all the universes where people change the entire world along with the characters’ personalities fit in.
But everyone is like “OH LOOK AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE”
When is actually an Alternate Timeline, absolutely everyone called it an AU despite me calling it an AT when it started so it spreaded like that, now if you could help me spread the correct concept from now on, that’d be great
