Doki Doki Literature Club! (and best playthroughs)

Not like this game needs more praise piled on it, but I wrote up a short ramble worshipping Team Salvato and linking to my favorite playthroughs. I'm not syndicating this on Planet IF due to spoilers, but you can read it on my blog.

It's not like the Literature Club needs more members, but I have been obsessed with this game despite the fact I never played it outright. I didn't initially think I was a VN/dating sim fan.

As a huge fan of meta-horror and games that aren't what they seem on the surface this is my jam. Plus it's amazing to watch Let's Play-ers - especially grown men jaded by every other horror game - have the absolute wonkers scared out of them during the uncanny-valley terror the game dishes out, and linger on edge when the game is cheekily playing "normal" and ramping up the paranoia of familiarity that was the whole gimmick of P.T. I almost believe DDLC might have a greater fear effect on men whose latent harem fantasies end up twisted around a delicate finger.

I had started this a couple years ago for the hilariously named "Space F****** Jam" but wasn't able to complete it with resources at hand.
The game is an adult pulpy space sex comedy circa 1982, very tongue in cheek, very very weird, and very very lewd. Check it out if you're interested in erotica, are of legal age, and are not on a corporate work computer. The text is explicit, but there are no pornographic images or sound - although some of the ambient music is funky or smooth-jazz suggestive of what you might hear in a porn movie. There is also a link to a spoilery-y list of potentia…
