My pick for the SoraNews24 article this week is one of the best surprises I’ve had all year: Doki Doki Literature Club is the best horror-game-disguised-as-dating-sim that you need to play.
It takes a lot for me to play through a video game these days. When I was younger I’d play most games whenever they came out, finishing them to 100% completion no matter how bad they were.
But as I’ve gotten older I’ve unfortunately had less and less time to devote to games. If a game doesn’t grab me and hold my interest right away, then I’ll probably put it down and move on to something else after just a few minutes.
So I was shocked when this game, Doki Doki Literature Club, had me hooked from the very first screen, before the game even technically started.
Doki Doki Literature Club is both a visual novel and a dating sim, two genres which I’m not a fan of, and yet it’s become my favorite game released in 2017.
How did that happen? Read the article and then try out the game for yourself. It’s free, short, and will stay with you for a long time.
