I made an account in this forum just to write a reply on this topic. I first downloaded this game thinking it was and ordinary otome, but I was utterly surprised (I didn't thought that the warning was a big deal). This is a masterpiece. One of the best game I had played.
I usually like the shy/gentle type of girl, but you changed that! Yuri scared the sh*t out of me, her eyes were creepy as hell. This is the first game that made me feel goosebumps. Also, Sayori was my best girl, I wish things hadn't ended the way it ended.
You should keep doing games like this one! :)

Excellent work. I streamed in on my Twitch channel and it was a very successful endeavor. Afterwards, I streamed a roundtable discussion with two other streamers who also played the game...we had a great time dissecting the game. Can't wait for your next project.
A Close Shave:
*Last Thing Done (Jul 7) Finished Emotion Matrix for Joint Customer Sprite.
*Currently Doing: Print Matrices, & decide emotions to use for Joint Sprite, think about blinking and lip flap. Maybe also about TransitionConditionSwitch?
*First Next thing to do: Code in all the sprite emotion and camera movement for Close Shave Sprite Sections
*Next Thing to Do: Code in all CG and special animation stuff
*Other Next Thing: Do SFX

Oh my god where do I even start?! I can safely say (without any spoilers),
This is what Visual Novels need.
I cannot wait to see your future games and how you continue to expand interactive art!

Loved it. Everything about the game was professional quality, made with love, and full of fun. Need more VNs like this one.

I just spent the last 3 evenings playing through this absolutely excellent game. The writing is superb, bringing this bunch of very likable characters to life, whilst simultaneously sowing subtle seeds for what is to come when everything goes a bit off-kilter...
Once the horror kicks in, I found myself hunched in my chair gripped with tension in that weird mix of fear and joy that only horror games bring out in people who like this sort of thing. Sayori's death was handled particularly brilliantly, coming as a huge shock and making me feel genuine sorrow for what had happened.
I won't forget this experience for a while. Really good work, Dan and your team of artists!

Just wanted to say I've come back to play this game again, loaded my save, played for around 15 minutes, realised
the game deleted all of my saves
and now I'm rather upset and considering deleting the game again.

Why this made so many people like the game is beyond me.

People like 4th Wall breaks, especially when they are shocking. And there are few ways to viscerally impact a player, but messing with their actual files (or just threatening to) is a unique way of ramping up stress or tension.

To my knowledge, the game only deletes your saves at one or possibly two points in the game, and both times there is no reason to go back to those saves except to try and metagame (which the game is making a comment on, since it is hard to treat visual novel love interests as real people you actually care about if your decisions can always be undone and you can always go back to make the 'right' choice).


It wouldn't work for every game or even most games, but it thematically fits with what Doki Doki LC is trying to do.

I gather that, but the issue I had was
I was a bit lost since its been several months since I played. I wanted to go back and load one of my earlier saves to refresh on what was happening, but unfortunately...
I also couldn't start a new game as it seems the option has been tweaked specifically so you cannot

Ah, yeah -
The whole thing is meant to be played through in one or two sittings, since the whole thing clocks in at just 4-5 hours. You can delete the 'firstrun' file in the game folder and it will remove all persistent data and let you start over from scratch without reinstalling the game if you want to do so.

Figured that may have been what that file was, but of course it doesn't really achieve what I wanted :<

I'll just continue from where I am, the story is easy enough to pick up again.
Thanks for the chat :)

This game is insanely mysterious and creepy when you get into all the hidden details.

I can't help but post a link to a game theorists video here: " https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9AWvi82uDw

@TS_Dan-

Well, I downloaded it and played through, and I echo the favorable comments of the posters who preceded me. but . . . .

I do have to mention something that I have found annoying, in this game, as well as others. Why does the author find it necessary to allow the reader to name a character? I am perfectly satisfied to go through a game, if it is interesting, regardless of the character's name. Why does it matter, you ask? The reason is that when I began this game and it asked me to name the character, having looked at the title page, it appeared to me that the character should have a girl's name, so that what I did. a few minutes later, there was the question "why did you bring a boy to the meeting?", or something to that effect. And it was too late for me, there was no way to restart the game and change the name, so I was confronted with my error, over and over, throughout the game. It seems to me that if an author feels that they must allow the player to name a character, they should somehow indicate whether the character is to be a male or female.

Its in the thread title [BxG].
Since DDLC is posed as a typical 'pick a love interest' VN, This would mean Boy (player) romances Girl (love interests in the game)

There's also the well written opening post:
