No Happiness Here – Doki Doki Literature Club! Analysis

doki_doki_theory_thumb

DDLC, a visual novel and dating sim that features 4 very cute girls in a literature club, and lucky you, they’re looking for new members! After playing the game myself, I have never been more terrified of anime girls than I was about these 4 ladies. DDLC was a very clever, wonderful and horrifying game that I have played this year, but after experiencing it and having trauma set in, it got me thinking about one character. Monika.

There is more than meets the eye with this wonderful game. I wanted to take a deeper look into it and give me own interpretation as to why Monika did what she did and why dating simulators are a persona/facade of happiness. I urge you please check out the game an experience yourself! This was such a great game, probably the best I played in 2017. It is free to play both on Steam and itch.io (but please be warned it’s not for someone who is easily disturbed)
