Uh, can you hear me? *Clears throat* Hi! It’s me.. Um.. So.. You know how I’ve been like.. Practicing piano, and stuff.. And, not really any good at it yet, like, At all.. But! I wrote you a song. And, I was kinda hoping that I could show it to you. Cause, I worked really, Really hard on it.. So.. yeah! Every day, I imagine a future where I can be with you. In my hand, Is a pen that will write a poem of me and you. The ink flows down, into a dark puddle.. Just move your hand, write the way into his heart! But in this world of infinite choices.. What will it take, just to find that special day? What will it take, just to find…that special day? *music playing* Have I found, everybody a fun assignment to do today? When you’re here, everything that we do is fun for them anyway.. When I can’t even read my own feelings, What good are words, when a smile says it all And if this world won’t write me an ending, What will it take, just for me to have it all? *more music playing* Does my pen, only write better words for those, who are dear to me? Is it love… if I take you or is it love if I set you free? The ink flows down into a dark puddle, How can I write, love into reality? If I can’t hear the sound of your heartbeat, What do you call, love in your reality? And in your reality, If I don’t know how to love you.. I’ll leave you be. Note Translation: To the special player who achieved this special ending.
For years, I have been enamored by the ability of visual novels – and games in general – to tell stories in ways not possible using traditional media. Doki Doki Literature Club is my love letter to that. Games are an interactive art. Some let you explore new worlds. Some challenge your mind in broad new ways. Some make you feel like a hero or a friend, even when life is hard on you. Some games are just plain fun – and that’s okay, too. Everyone likes different kinds of games. People who enjoy dating sims may have a heightened empathy for fictional characters, or they might be experiencing feelings that life has not been kind enough to offer them. If they are enjoying themselves, then that’s all that matters. That goes for shooting games, casual games, sandbox games – anything. Preferences are preferences, and our differences are the reason we have a thriving video game industry. My own favorite games have always been ones that challenge the status quo. Even if not a masterpiece, any game that attempts something wildly different may earn a special place in my heart. Anything that further pushes the limitless bounds of interactive media.
I extend my true gratitude to all those who have taken the time to achieve full completion. I hope you enjoyed playing it as much and I enjoyed making it.
Thank you for being a part of my Literature Club!
