Just saw your steam name, damn you must like DDLC :p.
(didn’t know Monika was a cs go player).

With that much effort into one post, not sure it’s considered ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ing ^^.

Just thought. DDLC is a bit like bioshock infinite, it’s all about a linear story where none of your actions ever mather (DDLC is worse as we can’t even control the MC, and he’s dumb af for what I think).

So, anyone has like an opposite kind of game (or VN, it’s the only VN I ever played), where it’s all about a nonlinear story ? I’m a bit bored with the linear game these days. So if someone has a good story/nonlinear game with dialogue (I’m not talking skyrim or fallout level of rpg, those are the worse imo), just something like DDLC but where you can either be crazy/normal/total dumbguy/maximumweird in the selection of dialogue 🙂 ? (there may be none, never searched for it so I don’t know if such genre of game really exist)

Let’s share !

One of my favorite is Bioshock Infinite, mostly because every time I play and look for explaination I just forget everything in a few months. I’m addicted to time travel stuff I think.

Bioshock series are pretty cool! All of them , even Bio2… but I must admit that Bio3’s plot is waaaay too complicated. And that’s why I like it! Time travel, quantum physics… all tangled to make an excellent game and to make you think while you shoot and stare at Elizabeth.

Bio3 is pretty like DDLC, asyou just have said, but most games are like that, even RPG. The difference is that RPGs give you the feeling of freedom, but in the end, you’re just following the rail. Anyway, I’m sorry, but what you’re asking is pretty unusual. Actually, what you’re asking is for “classic” VNs , and normally, those are cheesy and tacky japanese dating sims. I think I’ve seen some games like that on Steam but don’t recall the names. Recently, I’ve seen a game called “Tokyo Dark” in Steam that it’s a point’n’click adventure that you might like.

I hope that you find this helpful ! All my VNs are linear

I don’t really care if it’s considered posting or not. As long as everyone has fun I’m ok with it 🙂

And I also like the dedication that some people invest in their profiles and so on. It’s nice to find people so “commited” to those things, am i right? Just like myself ! Ahaha

My profile used to be so much cooler than it is now (my name used to be Kisaragi Yukano in case you recognize the name…) , but anyway, I like it as it is right now. I might change it in the future though… But I’m happy with my profile now

EDIT: Now Yuri’s meme name is YuriYuriDaze, maybe it will help you find something? I have also seen YuriTube somewhere….

I see what you mean ^^. I’m not really into those, I usually play video games kind of to “numb” myself and just get away. But I really enjoy storytelling where you feel attached to the charachters, you relate to him and at the end it feels like a complex entity.

It’s so much fun to imagine such a story I believe. I hope the succes of such game makes them more prominent in the future. DS hit the jackpot here.

I knew I had some depressing stuff.

Listen to this :

Villeneuve – Mercury, from the album First Date, vocals Mélanie Pain. One of the loveliest voices I heard lately. You can check them at http://www.myspace.com/melaniepain and…

the lyrics : https://www.musixmatch.com/lyrics/Villeneuve/Mercury

This band is just so awfully depressing (I love it). It would be closer to what Monika thought as an “Humang being”.

Kinda hard to find games that make you “escape reality”. I’m really into those too but lately, it’s really hard to find them and even more find good ones. The other ones I just have them as a “collection” let’s say. A showcase ahaha. Right now I’m reading tons of VN and hopefully I’ll stumble into something worthwhile. In that case, I’ll let you know 😛

BTW guys, I’ve been trying to resolve Yuri’s poem (again) but I have a brand new idea !

Morse code

What if Yuri’s words in the poem represent long-shorts in Morse Code?

I’ve been trying but so far I got nothing intelligible, just random words. (EIRJE YYE NMAT ERX �O EOATM —>”RK TETEK TANTT CAIT TITT ANTTHIA TEEA TEET DEIT TITT EE”RK TETEK TANTT CAIT TITT ANTTHIA TEEA TEET DEIT TITT EE She has regular measures. She could be taken as a nowadays “canonic” girl
Bra-size: D cup (probably, too many references…)

Natsuki

Height: 160cm-165cm (5.24934ft-5.41339ft) —> She’s so short… but only a little bit shorter than Sayori . Can be taken as a “loli” type
Bra-size: B cup ( maybe even A too)

Yuri

Height: 175cm-180cm (5.74147ft-5.90551ft)—> She’s so tall… Half a head taller than Monika Can be taken as a “moe” type
Bra-size: E/DDcup ( maybe even F/E too)

Monika

Height: 165cm-170cm (5.24934ft-5.41339ft)—> Defenitely a little bit taller than Sayori and shorter than Yuri . She would be a more “exuberant” version of a canonic girl
Bra-size: D+ cup (they’re bigger than Sayori’s but only a little bit)

MC

Height: 165cm-170cm (5.24934ft-5.41339ft)—> As tall as Sayori, maybe a couple cm/inches taller.
Bra-size: None ( I hope so…)

Bust, waist and hip measurements are too hard so I just stated the basic info of everyone. Is this what you wanted? I really hope so… Anyway, tell me guys what you think 😛

I kind of wanted to know at which weight, but I believe it’s aiming for non sportive person, so it must be really low. Maybe around 40-50 kg, (damn those manga makes you feel fat, i’m only 70 tho :p).

Btw, as a european japanese ideal and american reality seems so reversed. In one side I feel like people don’t care having 10-15 extra kg (I’m not saying it’s unhealthy btw, just smth I see) and the japanese are all over some extra “T H I N” body type (I wouldn’t see such girl everyday tbh).

Anyway, you’re doing a crazy job on those arg. The pixel calculation is smth I wouldn’t be able to do, you have been doing ARG for a long time ?

As for the weights, I think they must be fatter. 40kg (88.1849 pounds) is waaaay too little. I guess they’re between 50kg-60kg (110.231pounds-132.277pounds) Natsuki easily can be 50 or less kg since she has “trouble” at home. Monika and Sayori can easily weight 55kg and Yuri must be 60+ kg (specially since she has “extra” luggage)

I’m around 55kg and I just look like them ahaha (I wish)

Japanese and Americal ideals are hard to compare… if we’re talking about real life.
Anime/manga ideals are a different story . All seek the same:

Curvy girls with narrow hips and big chests with gorgeous faces. Tall but not taller than the MC and that look “normal”. Not too skinny but not too fat either. Sheesh, always the same right? Pretty hard to find “different” girls in an anime/manga. They all look the same, the only difference between them are always the same.. (yeah, what you’re thinking, boobs…)

And about doing ARGs… This is my first time! I’m an enthusiast with too many ideas and too much time ahaha

Damn 55 ? I’m trying to get nearby 60 (just a personal achievement, not fat all à_à). You must fly with this weight ?

I knew a guy once that was like 175cm (5’9 ?), he was like 50-55 kg he was grossly thin (closer to a skeleton). At the running exam (3km) he just got 1 min ahead of me (I was second). I kind of envy those people…

About yuri’s poeme : If you really find something out of it… It’s godlike at this point.

I have the idea that Yuri’s poem might be a Morse Code in disguise. Don’t be afraid to propose things! I’m too focused on Yuri right now to think of something else… ( don’t get the wrong idea :P)

UUUUu … oh. fuzzy thought. These character files, people generally describe them as Sayori’s is a QR code.Well, yeah, but look at the path. First is an ogg (audio file). Playing it is noise and something like a phonograph stylus at the end of a vinyl. Someone runs the signal through a spectrum analyzer and ? (intermediate step maybe) = QR. Which THEN needs to be scanned with your mobile phone and that QR then yields a link to a website.

So … (tada!) turning Yuri’s wall of words into other words, by whatever means is … a dead end.

Thanks for listening.

I must away, another transcript to generate … (exit stage left quickly)

And it didn’t fall flat. I’ve thought penty of times that Yuri’s poem might be a dead end and actually means nothing but it can’t be… After so much effort… I’ll keep trying until DS himself says:

“Stop it, there’s nothing here afterall”

So what do you suggest? Shall we stop looking at Yuri’s poem and take another approach? In that case, which one? I’ve really tried to figure out what to do with it but it’s just impracticable.

Eugh, I think I might be too stubborn to surrender now… I just can’t believe that it means nothing…

Anyway, thanks for the transcripts ! You’re doing an outstanding job !

EDIT: Here it is in Morse

Hopefully, I haven’t messed up

Long time since I messed with Morse. I said, Samuel, uuu … never mind.

Anyway. I wish you well with your efforts ( even though words to words twangs my intuition) and I’m still trying to figure out what to turn it into. Maybe it’s MIDI notation for “Your Reality”
or a bonus song.

It’s true that I feel I can fly but I’m not skinny. I mean, I must be around 175 cm (5.74147ft )too but I’m not like a skeleton at all ( unless I’m delusional when I look at myself at the mirror…or I bought a circus mirror instead of a normal one… oh well)

And about Yuri’s poem I still have no clue what it means. It’s true that I might be close to finding something… but I can’t still get anything clear. Perseverance will be the key to solve this! (I hope so at least ahaha)

I thought of Morse Code because some times, even in WW2 I think , in order to send information safely, you could write tons of words without sense (just like in this poem) and then depeding on their position, their lenght etc you could convert them into long and shorts. In my opinion, this is the only type of encoding possible ( if it’s even coded…)

Anyway, I also wish you luck in your attepts. This could be anything afterall, right?

At least, I hope it IS something… ( except a DS joke of course)

The game is cruel, and Monika the ultimate tragedy.

But I don’t think DS is really that cruel to us.

Just as an aside: and I don’t remember where I learned it, the Natsuki sprite set was the biggest, with two completely different head positions and thusly more expressions.

You probably read it on page 19 of the DDLC Concept Art Booklet.

Keep up the good work!

Why, you’re absolutely correct (closes pdf). And thank you.

I have probably skimmed all the topics, visited the wiki more than enough, call Google my friend, and still get confused between the Win7 in one room and Ubuntu linux in another. Oh, and there’s the occasional check on something with the Samsung tablet. Not the S5, tho, mostly it needs recharging.

Well morse code also used on WW1 too for aircraft and artillery supports.. And this came into my mind… Does the piano “My Reality” notes mean something?? Since we can use those notes and turn it into Morse!! (If possible) Might sound a bit stupid but, we can atleast try and see the results right guys???

Nothing is stupid when we’re uncharted territory. Sky’s the limit and beyond! for speculation.

After all, this whole thing started 2 Nov With a PIANO and a theory. A quest and the answer, like bookends framing the story would be epic!

just one thing that clicked me, Monika’s eye are black in the void chapter (black iris at least). Any idea why ?

Apart from all those theory, after playing the good ending I feel like the game was a total experiment. A way to try new storytelling.

What amazes me is that the guy is only known for being a coder/ super smash bros pro, and he manages to develop alone this game, and the music… The game was like done by 5 people, in more than a year that’s pretty amazing.

I discovered a great game that was developed by one guy. It’s all about storytelling too, it’s the guy who did “The stanley Parable”, it’s “The beginner’s Guide”. It’s a walking simulator trough different environment while having the develop express his thought on the game-concept you discover. It seems a bit random, but it’s lony 2 hour long maximum and it’s really a great way to play a “behind the scene” of game development.

About the eyes take a look at http://steamcommunity.com/app/698780/discussions/0/1479857071251131988/?ctp=8#c1620599015879106728 and http://steamcommunity.com/app/698780/discussions/0/1479857071251131988/?ctp=8#c1620599015879485896

This game sure is a “experiment”, both in our world and in their world ahaha.
If you’re interested in story-telling games, walking simulators etc you should definetely check the itch.io website. There are hundreds of cool games there that will surely be of your taste!

I think you will like this: https://silverstring.itch.io/glitchhikers

The story’s good, and the OST is amazing too. The graphics are so-so but I really loved it.

Best introspective game ever ahaha. Give it a try and tell me what you think!

EDIT: I’ve realised there’s something very wrong with the credits. I’ll post my idea later

Nice theory. Yet I wonder if the MC is really in the same room in the void room. nothing is animated, even the MC says something about being “one dimension” human (while Monika speak about two dimension I believe). So I don’t know how the world is suppose to reflect in her eye, but it’s surely not something in “3D” as we know it, maybe for her it’s perfectly normal, or it’s just “behind the game’s data” and so we can’t see everything in this world (other people and places).

I kind of wonder if the MC isn’t just like the others girls. He wasn’t made to react to Sayori’s death I believe (the one who made the game never intented this to be a feature, which is why the game start to glitch). So it’s just the big weirdness from the game, that all characters (non sentients) realize differently while out of script (see day third, when you finish sharing the poems Monika says smth that Natsuki and Yuri point out as being weird because it not being the usual catch phrase).
Seems the game is just weird in general, I belive it to be plothole tbh. Would have been a bit overkill to give explaination of everything (link between game/reality, link between story mechanic and the game’s files).
Also, I don’t believe anymore that all this mambo jambo about the third eye and blood lust power is written as part of the plot, it’s really just small Easter eggs. I was hopeful, but we can’t have everything I guess ^^’.

Anyway, replaying the game made me realize how well is the game structured, the poems make a ton of sense, like the raccoon and the cutting habit. It’s a bit like “Shutter Island”, those kind of movie/game which blow your mind at the end of the story and tell you “It was all planned, you fool !” and you’re like “well here goes the second play through then”.

I’m going to try Glitchhikers, doesn’t seem bad (and short I guess?).

Just played your game @Dearlaice Gortaigh.
It’s short, yup. It’s a nice little game that goes right where he needs to, delivering a message about life and our place in the universe, good idea.
That made me realize that Doki Doki had a powerfull effect on me because it reminds me of myself in it, it’s appealing at first then made me sad. I kind of understand why the average guy who has an “happy” life wouldn’t find much interesting in the story.

About Glitchhikers you should play more than once. Each time you play, the hikers may change ( except the first one) The message is pretty straightforward but nonetheless powerful, right?
I quite enjoyed the game .

And as for DDLC, well, I feel the same as you ahaha

Or how when you try to backup your save file and replace it after she deletes them, she’ll stop you with the line, “You’re so funny, [player]” talking to you and prematurely breaking the facade. Like you experiencing the story in the way she intended is more important to her than the end result. Just before Yuri kills herself, the “Have a nice weekend” file appears in your folder, showing that she already knows what’s about to happen. At one point in the story, she looks at the screen with a concerned face and asks you if you can hear her before the “help me” box appears. When you click OK, she smiles and moves on, reassured that everything is on track.

Later, assuming after the game is over, the hidden message in her character file asks you for help again, like what you did in the game didn’t accomplish what she wanted. And saying “if they remember their time with me in the other worlds…they should remember what I tell them.” can show that she was trying to tell a story that would help them to change things.

But I am trying not to let the “easter eggs” play too much into the theories anymore because if Team Salvato is pushing the term around so much, they might be just that. Clips from his next “non-DDLC related” game. But they’re also wording things carefully so they don’t crush theorists’ spirits.

Has anyone else noticed that one the second playthrough (Once Monika is “in control”) the loading screen says “made with love” over the Team Salvato logo? Like shes put that there as well… meaning she may be in control weather the games fully loaded or not…

And saying “if they remember their time with me in the other worlds…they should remember what I tell them.” can show that she was trying to tell a story that would help them to change things.

But I am trying not to let the “easter eggs” play too much into the theories anymore because if Team Salvato is pushing the term around so much, they might be just that. Clips from his next “non-DDLC related” game. But they’re also wording things carefully so they don’t crush theorists’ spirits.

Has anyone else noticed that one the second playthrough (Once Monika is “in control”) the loading screen says “made with love” over the Team Salvato logo? Like shes put that there as well… meaning she may be in control weather the games fully loaded or not…

I don’t think so. I mean, she can delete everything in sight and change code and personalities, but the game being loaded, no. In the second arc, she couldnt stop the poem minigame-cutscene thing to happen because it HAD to happen it was part. As for the void arc, the script was broken and the story was gone, so there was no poem thing to be cued, so she had to now bring it up. And for the message, the last couple times that screen loaded, it was messed up, so if it was that easy to break, she easily could of put something in there, right?

You seem to be forgetting that she has no idea what she’s doing, and everything is super “glitchy” because of it.

Well, in case you guys haven’t read my answer for this here it goes:

And I have further evidence that Monika’s not in control of ALL the game. I’ll explain it tomorrow probably when I find the time.

If Monika’s actually in control of everything, she really must have something BIG planned… And additionally, she would be the best actress ever, right? Ahaha

But dosen’t the “Coming soon 2018” theory shows that YOU and Monika are the hero for the next VN game?? So if she planned it, she’s the villain in the game but if 1 character being both good and bad guy of the game it may change the plot of the story and someone must replace her place if she’s the villain. And if Libitina is Monika so our theory about those 4 girls represent Libitina, thats mean Libitina is shattered across the timeline, broken, and those poor 4 girls is her. And if Monika is AI that make sense that Libitina is asleep and Monika escape from her “Real Body” which is Libitina and roam around right?? Remember that when AI is soo advance than human they can disguise themself as human?? Also Monika may act as AI in the game since she broke the 4th wall which we can say she messing around with Libitina dream or 3rd eye test.. And if she escape from the lab, she still have her normal form, a FIT and SEXY ulala~ japan type school uniform..But what makes her powerful is her 3rd eye Psychic ability which make her a living weapon.. What happend to Libitina?? Well she will stay asleep since 3/4 part if her is missing… Like us, human what happend if our brain is missing?? Well you know it…

Guys, you two, yeah. I am so enjoying this experience, creative minds at play.

m_m, tho … I hope you’re not disappointed but … when did DS ever do the obvious thang? Eh?

What bother me is the “non related”. The easter eggs in Monika.chr looks alike with what Monika says through the game “save me, do you hear me” all those messages. So it’s ok if the others characters aren’t there, but about the link between monika and the easter eggs. Well…

@Dearlaice Gortaigh
Even if the plot of the game is to make you feel weird that non real character comes to love you, she’s acting weird. She even says that she shouldn’t have done all those things (killing yuri and deleting Nastuki, and sayori). I belive there’s something making her do that, otherwise she wouldn’t be acting like that at the end (or is it just a way to tell us that love makes u do anything ?). Maybe there’s a link between the two game, and that is why she act like this, or it has nothing to do with it.

What she did seems in character to me. She said she wouldn’t have done what she did if any of them were real, which tells me that if anyone besides her did have sentience, she wouldn’t have known about it. (Which may eat into my Sayori theory…) But there’s also the chance she’s lying, but I don’t like to assume that with anything the characters or DS say. I’d rather think there are double meanings to a lot of the things Monika says. If the games are going to be linked, I’m guessing it would be through more secrets in game files or like in all of the underlying plot that DDLC has.

1/5/2018 the problem is, it could be the 1st of may 😀 (a good reason to be vague is not knowing when you`re gonna finish a project ^^)

Ok guys, yesterday I had an epiphany ( what a story,right? ahaha)

While I was struggling at night with my numerous nightmares an idea came to me. An idea which could explain why DS says that the easter-eggs are not relevant (including the Third Eye stuff) , why the next game will be “non-related” and that somewhat explains Monika’s behaviour, references and control over the game.

Well, let’s start shall we? This time, I’ll try to avoid making a nasty wall of text… I hope I’m able to do so 🙂

Why are the “easter-eggs” not important? And the next game not related, is it possible?

I’m going to start stressing what we already know. Monika’s an extremely advanced AI that had been being developed and perfected since, probably, around 2015. At the same time, as we also know, DS was working on another game. That game, supposedly, will be the next game. The “non-related” one. This means that they were working on the two projects simultaneously.

And why this is actually important?

Well, usually (programmers know very well) , when you touch something from a code, unexpectedly and undesirably, you may alter somehow another piece of code. This is very common while managing huge projects. The code is “entangled” somehow.

These unnoticed changes are often recognized as bugs. So, what I’m trying to say is: Working on the two projects at the same time has caused the games to be “influenced” to each other. This means that the so called ” easter-eggs” are actually elements or even pieces of code from the other game due to the parallel development. Because of this, Monika probably got affected from other projects. This would explain why she mentions Smash Bros, why she knows about the Third Eye, the facility and the other worlds too. I’ll explain in more detail this later.

So, as you can see, “easter-eggs” are not important because they were not intended to be in the game in the first place. Hence, that’s why we are told that we cannot “theorise” and why DS said that there is no “underlying” story, since, he’s actually right! It’s not an underlying story, it’s a complete parallel story… Very intelligent indeed

What about the Third Eye?

The Third Eye, as I have explained before, it could be an influence from the other game. It’s true that the Third Eye is very strong in this game and that the references , not only from Monika, are obvious and pretty direct… but that doesn’t mean it’s a side effect, right? We actually don’t know if it exists at all in the DDLC world. But considering it’s a side effect, an illusion, let’s say, the game would still be totally right. How? Like this:

Monika got the Third Eye ideas during her development from the other game. She actually believed all of it. The existence of the facility, of the superpowers… Also, she can blame many of the things she does (like Yuri’s death for example) to the Third Eye.

That explains Natsuki’s and Yuri’s poems: Monika blames the Third Eye for her ” bloodlust” but she actually knows it’s from other place (Monika’s brilliant, right? ahaha)

Another approach is that Monika actually belives in the existence of the Third Eye and her actions are influenced by it ( like some sort of madness)

That also explains her plead for help in her .chr file: Like before, she either really believes that she has a problem with the Third Eye or at last finds out that it’s from somewhere else and wants to solve the problem once and for all.

If we consider that all the girls are part from Monika, this merges well with the idea that everyone has the “Third Eye”. Since all of them “share” the same consciousness, all of them believe in it but in their own ways(Yuri’s lust for pain, for example, may be a side effect).

This also even explains the references to Libitina, Elyssa, Reiner etc . How we don’t know that they’re literally from the other game? Maybe Monika knows this and she’s trying to tell us indirectly ( have a nice weekend! Vigenere’s key was Libitina) or maybe she has no clue why she has that in her mind or in the game and uses them to send you messages ( nothingisreal?) Monika can’t be trusted at all… Man, this really makes things difficult

Monika got influenced?

Yes.Like I’ve said before, she got ideas or even pieces of code from the other game due to parallel development. But does it affect her game control? We don’t know how “influnced” she got with this. Maybe a little , enough to appear as references? Or a lot, like some sort of obsession? After 2 years in development, I’d bet it’s like some sort of “mania” for her. Maybe, like I’ve stated before, she actually believes everything from the other game like if it was real or something or actually she realizes that it’s fake and comes from another “place” hence the other worlds. I’d say that she has been in both stages:

At first, the first year, she actually believed it and didn’t care much

The second year, when she became aware that she was an AI, she started to doubt everything that was in her head.

This would also explain why she has knowledge of topics of our real world. She got influenced by them during her development? Maybe… Through her Twitter probably…

An interesting question is:

If Monika had been influnced from the other game, she should know from where right?

She could actually know… but she doesn’t even know her creators! She , during the void, tells you that if you knew the ones who created her. But I believe that she’s lying! She must know them ! Why?

Because in the credits, she sings to you and actually deletes one by one all the CGs. At the same time, you can see all the creators of the game. Or either she can’t see them, or she’s playing dumb.

If she can’t see them it shows us that she’s not in control of the whole game. She cannot “read” for example. Moreover, the DS’s “special player” letter is directly for us. If she was in complete control, she could have put her letter for example.

If she’s playing dumb, why? To get your attention of course. To make you think. To keep the secrecy, the hype, the community…To keep everything she has achieved in those 3 short months. If she had told us everything directly, it wouldn’t have been funny, would it? Ahaha

Long story short

DDLC got influenced by the other game due to parallel development
Monika, by extension, got the ideas from the other game and affected her personality
Easter-eggs, the Third Eye… are not relevant to DDLC’s plot so DS is not actually lying
The next game is not related because it has nothing to do with DDLC.
But that doesn’t mean that it hadn’t been influenced too.

Damn another wall of text… I’m really bad at making short explanations…

Oh well, I’ve tried at least ahaha 😛

So basically. The two game’s world (univers) collided through development, which explains some easter eggs (was it accidental, or developer purpose?).

Still, the letter from Monika, that tell us a new story is coming is still in my mind. Only thing that makes sense to me is if Monika isn’t just a character, but more like an entity that can exist/travel through worlds (game?). It wouldn’t make sense to see her trapped in DDLC, but then see her in another game taking place before DDLC (she would have so much sh’t to explain to us, and I don’t belive DS want such connection because it would make the story a mess for a new player that never played DDLC).
I wouldn’t say that she knows nothing, she clearly stop mid sentence when she speaks about Portrait of Markov and the protagonist of that story.

The question of free will and total knowledge of Monika won’t ever be answered, it’s just too vague.

One more thought is the the woman with white hair in the gamefile. I heard the file looked like an 3D texture, but DS talked about a VN for his next game. Not sure if someone has an idea if I’m missing something about that (tho I believe another VN would definitely be nice, walking simulator are overrated ^^).

But how did Monika achieve such an interconnection? She was programmed to do so? Or she got the abilites by mistake from the other game? Man, everything is possible because ,Monika at this point , can be anything. From just a self-aware AI confined in a game for fun up to an entity with supernatural powers capable of interacting with multiple layers at a time. As long as she doesn’t clear our ideas, everything is possible my friend.

And the new game, remember: it does not take place neither “before” nor “after”.
They’re not “related” ahaha.

It’s supposed to be a VN. I think. But he could surprise us all, am I right? Ahaha
