Doki Doki Literature Club starts out as a regular Visual Novel where you find yourself on the way to school and you meet up with your childhood friend. Things would go on normally from here as you and your childhood friend talk and joke about each other on your way to school. Your next step is to join a club which is how visual novels about high school life usually go about and you guessed it. It is where you meet up with the rest of the cast and determine which route you will be headed to.

REVIEW

The way you would normally come across this game is through someone telling you that Doki Doki Literature Club  is very depressing and if you don’t have depression you will develop depression once you play it. Let’s be honest the game is indeed creepy and it knows it. It has a warning at the beginning that states that if you do have anxiety or depression, you should stay away from this game.

Doki Doki Literature Club did well in giving you your freedom to choose the route you set out for using a small minigame where you choose 20 words that best describe the traits of the girl of your choice which the protagonist will turn into a poem and present it to the girls during club hours. During this time you get to learn a lot about each girl which in itself is an excellent feature.

The soundtrack is wonderfully composed. I could listen to it all day long.

You will find yourself at the end of the game surprisingly quick. Which in actuality it is a part of the game. At this part this is where the reviews becomes the truth and boy was I not expecting it. It all shifts into a dark turn and since this is a spoiler-free review I won’t mention what happened.

 

Doki Doki Literature Club was directed fantastically and it is well versed when it comes to emulating Emotional Disorders. It somewhat teaches you how to approach people with depression and prevent them from doing something drastic. But Doki Doki Literature Club is full of WTF moments and it surely isn’t for those who are easily disturbed.


RATING: Just Monika


IT IS PRETTY HARD TO MAKE A REVIEW WHILE TRYING TO AVOID SPOILERS. I MEAN, IT’S A REVIEW SO IT HAS TO HAVE SPOILERS IN ORDER FOR OTHERS TO UNDERSTAND THE WHOLE THING. I TRIED TO LESSEN THE IMPACT OF THE SPOILERS VIA PARAPHRASING TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA BUT NOT RUIN THE WHOLE THING.
