Hi, Monika here!
Welcome to the Literature Club! It's always been a dream of mine to make something special out of the things I love. Now that you're a club member, you can help me make that dream come true in this cute game!
Every day is full of chit-chat and fun activities with all of my adorable and unique club members:
Sayori, the youthful bundle of sunshine who values happiness the most;
Natsuki, the deceivingly cute girl who packs an assertive punch;
Yuri, the timid and mysterious one who finds comfort in the world of books;
...And, of course, Monika, the leader of the club! That's me!
I'm super excited for you to make friends with everyone and help the Literature Club become a more intimate place for all my members. But I can tell already that you're a sweetheart—will you promise to spend the most time with me? ♥
Doki Doki Literature Club is being produced by Team Salvato, a brand-new development studio hoping to make our mark on the OELVN community right from the beginning. The game has been in development for over a year and contains more than 75,000 words of irresistibly cute and charming dialogue for you to enjoy. Each chapter, you will play a short poem-writing minigame and grow your bond with the club members who enjoy your poem the most. As the club members slowly come out of their shell, you will hear them compare your poem to your previous ones, or even complain that you're trying too hard to impress the other club members! Start to finish, the game is 4-5 hours long for seasoned VN players, but you can bet there is plenty of replay value.

* Why/How is this game free?
Because this is our first game, we want to make sure as many people as possible have the opportunity to play it. We are also using a pay-what-you-want model with some bonus content available at the $10 mark, and we also offer some physical merchandise such as posters and keychains. While we plan to continue making games, any financial support will provide us with a greater budget for future development!
* What game engine are you using?
None other than the wonderful Ren'Py. Much of this game would be nearly impossible to create using other VN engines.
* Where can I learn more?
Just keep an eye on this thread and the website! I will be happy to answer questions, but sometimes I may choose not to go into detail in fear of spoiling certain components of the game.[/size]
or those who are easily disturbed.
