A free game that's available on Steam, and also on the game's very own website. I decided to try this game out since it's going to be a few more days before Wolfenstein New Colossus, and I want to play a VN game after I played Root Double, so meh, I gave it a try. So this game is about you, a guy that you can name to whatever you want, joining a Literature club, where you can meet and interact with 4 cute girls: Sayori (the one with the red ribbon) Monika (the one with the white ribbon) Natsuki (the pink haired girl) and Yuri (the long haired girl) It's up to you to decide which one of these girls you want to spend most of your time with, so if you have played a high school romance type Visual Novel before, this game is going to be right up your alley! Oh, and it also comes with this message on the start screen. And after playing this game..... I'm going to have nightmares. Holy mother of shitting Gods. This.... is quite possibly the scariest Visual Novel I have ever played. And THAT...... THAT is saying something considering I have played fucked up VNs like Higurashi and Umineko. Plus this game which has a surprisingly scary as hell route during the part with the girl that looks like Miku from Vocaloid. Doki Doki Literature Club has the most unsettling use of a VN interface ever. It's actually excellently done considering that it's a VN we're talking about where all that happens is you read through texts and see CGS passing around, but this game did it in such a way that I actually freaked the fuck out and quit the game 5+ times whenever something I didn't expect happen, because I'm scared of what's coming up next. The last game that made me do that is Alien Isolation. I actually think that this game is scarier than Resident Evil 7, Outlast 2 and Evil Within 2 from this year. So...... bravo game! I can't spoil anything about this game, other than it's a perfect game in preparation for Halloween. It's a game that you have to play for yourself, and it's free on Steam, so if you want a good scare, try this game out. I give this game the rating of "MAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOPMAKEITSTOP" 9 out of 10. PS. I can't get the game's theme out of my head. It's so...... catchy Oh, and apparently, there's a hidden reference to something called "Project Libitina" in the game file itself, which most likely means that there's going to be a sequel to this game which will explain what the hell is going on. Or maybe it's an upcoming game easter egg. Either way, I can't wait to see what's next from this game dev!
Kaz32 posted a topic in Written Reviews & PreviewsMan it's been a while since I played a pure visual novel. Now it's time to return to basic! This game has 4 parts to play through. After, Before, Current and Double. After and Before are available at the start while Current and Double are unlocked when you finish route A and B. The story of this game is pretty cool. Basically it takes place in the year 2030 at Rokumei City, a city where a lot of the population are psychic mind readers, or as this game calls them "Communicators", and they're able to do what Professor Xavier do. You know, reading minds, telling people stuff with their mind, that sort of thing. A lot of the game takes place in a nuclear reactor facility called LABO, or the "6th Laboratory of Atomic and Biological Organization" facility in the city where an emergency happens and 9 people are trapped underground, in a facility that is currently experiencing a nuclear meltdown. Why are they trapped there? Can they make it out alive, or will they succumb to the nuclear radiation and become Ghouls from the Fallout series??? Well, it's up to you to determine their fate and find out the mystery! To make sense of the entire game's story, it's recommended to start from route Before as it is basically the beginning of the game before the LABO incident happen, and in it you play as Natsuhiko Tenkawa, a high schooler who is considered a very talented psychic, but is unable to use his talent yet. Here you will learn about the game's universe and rough overview of the characters that you will encounter in the other routes. Route After though takes place during the LABO incident where you play as Watase Kasasagi, once of the firemen assigned to rescue civilians underground. Unfortunately something happens to him and, well, he got amnesia. So you have to help him and the other survivors live through the day. Current and Double will be unlocked afterwards, and that's where everything concludes in grand fashion. Unlike other VNs, you don't progress through the game by making dialogue choices. Here you have to decide what you must do using Senses Sympathy System (SSS). Usually when a time for decision happens, a wheel will show up on the top right section of the screen. When you click on it, You're given the choice of affecting the sympathy wheel for the characters involved in the situation. So lets say you're trapped in a room full of fire with another person, and then you have to decide whether you or that person has to extinguish the flames surrounding you both. You can dial the Senses Sympathy meter to max out either yourself or the other person to pick which one should do it. You can choose to do it yourself, but the other person is more capable to handle the situation, so naturally picking the other person is the right choice. In a lot of cases, it is a matter of life and death, and one slip will cause one of MANY deaths for you, so be careful, and have fun experimenting with different choices. How is the game overall though? Does the story make sense in the grand scheme of things, is it just a dating sim game like most VNs and are the characters involved in it great or just your typical anime stereotypes? Well, not only is the story really deep and awesome with a lot of revelations and plot twists, this game is not a dating sim, but instead more like the 999 series and Ever 17 games where it's all about the suspense, plot twists and trying to figure out a way out of the situation the characters are all in. And when you realize that this game is made by the director of Ever 17, everything makes perfect sense. He loves his mind bending adventure! The characters involved in the game are also very good. They all have their varied backstories and realistic character traits that makes them all interesting and not just one dimensional stereotypes. And you will be invested in their stories by the end of the 30 - 50 hours you spent on this game. The only bad thing I can say about this game is that during the Before route, there's this sub story of 2 people doing telepathy to each other. One guy likes the other girl, and there's a part where basically the whole school can hear these 2 are going to confess on the rooftop of their school. In the end it is resolved, but you don't get to see the faces of these 2 people because the main characters don't come and see the outcome of it themselves. Instead they go home....... WHY??? I want to know who these lovebirds are damn it! ): Just joking there obviously but damn. Such a shame! Ah yes, and the fact that this game is pretty exposition heavy, which can get pretty overwhelming. I mean holy crap, there's 140+ terms and trivia that you can unlock in this game. Half of them are about characters introduced in the game, and most of them are about the game's universe and the various scientific terms used. Some of them are just complex explanations on how the mind reading is used, which involved particles and neurons all around the brain, which is then transferred to another person's mind using energy. Or you know, you can simply say "it's that thing that Professor X did to mind read". It's an interesting read if you have the time, but it can get really complex in some cases. In the end, this is a great VN and I'm really glad that these games are still going strong. I wish for the best for these traditional VN games and I hope to play more great ones coming later! 9.5 out of 10, with a badass seal of approval. VN lovers should play this game post haste! You will not be sorry.
