Horror and Waifu Abound
At first glance, Doki Doki Literature Club Plus looks pretty saccharine. Like a cutesy game about finding romance. But then I hear how it’s a “psychological horror experience”, and I get curious. It’s coming to PC, Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Series X|S at the end of this month, on June 30th. And best of all, it’ll also get some sweet physical editions.
If you, like me, want to know more about the game, please read the following info:
Doki Doki Literature Club was a massive hit upon release, becoming the No. 1 rated Steam game of 2017 and one of the highest-rated titles of all time. The game achieved a cult status quickly, garnering a huge community and amassing over 9 million downloads. Serenity Forge is also working with Team Salvato to bring physical editions of the game to retail that include an assortment of stickers, standees, a special poem, soundtrack download codes, and more.
Doki Doki Literature Club Plus puts players in the shoes of a student who joins his school’s literature club at the request of his childhood friend Sayori, and meets other members Yuri, Natsuki and club president Monika. Soon, the player begins writing poems and grows closer to the other members – is romance in the air? Hailed by thousands as one of the most disturbing games in a generation, Doki Doki Literature Club Plus is the ultimate psychological horror narrative experience.
Doki Doki Literature Club Plus is bursting at the seams with hours of Side Stories that expand the world of the game, exploring themes and ideas that will give players a deeper understanding and sense of connection to each and every character and their individual relationships with one another.
It all sounds fascinating, but I still demand to know more about the horror elements. In any case, stay tuned to HPP for more from Serenity Forge. And check out the Doki Doki trailer below!
