Doki Doki Literature Club is a visual novel that clearly does not open to a vast audience and that does not appear as the title that everyone will love. It is important to take into account the strong narrative component, which is different from what we are used to in the mainstream videogame: the visual novel urges us to sit down - or lay down, as you prefer - and read, read and read again, keeping the same image static in the background.

Doki Doki Literature Club is a mind boggling and hard hitting horror game that takes tried and tested formulas of both visual novels and dating sims and turns them on their heads. The themes and story pack a punch, and stayed with me long after I had finished playing. It may require commitment from some to get through but the reward for those who stick it is more than worth it
