Doki Doki Literature Club
4.5 out of 5 stars
Doki Doki Literature Club is a visual novel. It is tagged on the gaming platform, Steam as “anime” and “psychological horror.” But it does not appear that way on the surface. On the surface, Doki Doki is a very typical dating simulator.
I would not usually consider myself the type of person to play what some would call an “anime” game. But, this visual novel really intrigued me. My friend had mentioned the game to me and had brought up the idea of playing it, that’s why I did. Normally, I would never have even thought about playing anything even remotely like this.
The novel is full of twists and turns that help develop extremely complex characters. No matter what path you try to take, there is only one ending, which is extremely shocking. Because I won’t give away any spoilers, I can’t say much more about the game in itself. But, I can say that no matter what you think you may know about the game, it will most definitely surprise you.
Overall, Doki Doki Literature Club is definitely worth a play. Even if you aren’t normally the type to play video games or to like anime you will probably enjoy this visual novel dating simulator. I would say that this game is suitable for any age, so long as you aren’t “easily disturbed.”
