@Scheneighnay Even DS said somewhere that he made MC as being as generic as possible and unlikable. That’s what he said, so…

Since the MC can only talk with dialogue script, we can say he’s also like Monika but yea as y’all say, Soulless.. And what make him a really weired kind of character Monika can barely control the MC and make him say nothing and just freeze stare at her… SO the MC is also someone that can brake the 4th wall, you can see it but can’t tell anyone about it since you’re talking what the script tell you to, If the MC is a normal person, I bet he already die because he can’t accept most of the situation.. So what we see like glitching and stuff proves that the MC is also the one than can Brake through the 4th wall…But his weakness is he depends on dialogue script to comunicate with those grils…

“I’ve been focusing on DDLC stuff and it will be a while before there’s more info on my next project.”

Sounds to me like that means the Libitina website is probably more related to his other project than DDLC stuff. That’s good too. I didn’t really expect anything this early, so I’m feeling pretty patient. I hope he takes all the time he needs to make his project just the way he wants to without pressure affecting it. You just end up with better results that way.

Funko Pops would be a great merch decision, and he mise well toss in 2-3 hidden achievements (bad end, normal end, special end) with the expected translation and possible bug fix update.

I didn’t put muc thoughts at first and was like “yeah”. But after all, he connected with three girl (depend which one you chose) and learned a great deal about them. It would have been me it would have been a mess (MC really was saying BS sometimes I agree, but he still had average/decent personnalitie).

So what reasons makes you think he’s unbearable ? No theory here, just me and my questions.

1. Consider his very first statements in a new perspective … annoying girl ,,, the sort of friend you wouldn’t have today … considered running away – (not motivated enough to make the effort).

2. more lack of motivation

3. ulterior motive for LC but secretive about it

4. various verbal slurs not only to Sayori but others

5. button the jacket, control freak?

6. so certain he knows what’s best for Sayori, when he doesn’t even know her true personality. Remember how Monika tried to tell him she was only so cheerful when around him, poor girl.

7. “left her hanging” is also a criticism of his character,

8. and why the break in their relationship and why he never tried to reconnect

~

99. Sayori’s last poem is to him, about him, and she’s not talking about Monika

Btw, it’s probably good DS didn’t do anything today, it’ll help us (mostly me) relieve the pressure and forget about it.

In case you missed them, my old thoughts about the MC

EDIT: To sum up, it’s right to say that the MC is just another tool for Monika to reach us

I’ve done a quick glance over it and I think it’s about ARGs that imply the use of Youtube as a way to “convey” themselves and reach to other people.

The link that xae-chan has posted sure is perfect for those here who love ARGs 🙂
So thank you for sharing

I finished To The Moon. Damn the story was good, still I feel emotionless in comparison with doki doki. I gotta remember no to play other game like that one, I’ll wreck myself otherwise…

I still have a few game alike to play, anyone played The Talos Principle ?

The ‘sequel’ for To The Moon recently came out, Finding Paradise, it has been a 6 year wait for people who played TTM right away, but you’re just in time. I heard it is very very good, saving it for my 500th perfect game.

Its’s brilliant. Think First Person Puzzler mixed with philosophy. One of my favorites.

So like a Portal but different atmospheer/humour ?
#674

Zuvila has Doki Doki Literature Club 7 Jan @ 5:36am
I bought To the moon for like 1,5 (not even triffidy :p). Maybe next sale I’ll (or just later) I’ll pick up the sequel then.

Still, I don’t feel connected the same way a VN does, damn I hate those kind of game. It’s like Life is Strange, that game was ahead of his time for sure.

Yes, in it’s core it is about solving puzzles using your environment and several tools. There’s not much humour, but there’s a bittersweet background story told mostly through recordings and textfiles. You have to keep a open mind on contemplating philosophy and religion to get the full experience, but even if you skip through most of that it’s still a damn good puzzler.

I personally loved To The Moon for it’s story (rather than for game mechanics) and will be playing Finding Paradise soon.

Glad to know you liked it, I’ll try it soon. I feel like I’ll going to change my gaming style now, rather than play all AAA release only focus on popular (indie) games. It’ll sure free a lot of my time x).

You were writing recently on the CYHM monologue. What was your impression of the ‘speaker’? I keep reading the words and hearing them in my mind’s ear and it just.isn’t.Monika …

so who is it, and talking to whom? (I mean, I know you’re not, like…evil, or anything…)

No, this is the text derived from the image in monika.chr (flaming circle with square). The latter is often mistaken for a QR code but it’s a binary sequence which can be converted to ascii and base64 decoded. It starts “Can you hear me?” Not be confused with a short file by that name.

I encountered it first on a lilmoniX3 topic on 4 Nov. It’s been haunting me ever since.

@xae-chan Well, the “speaker isn’t so different from all the things we saw related to Monika. In DDLC we see a multiple team text like “save me” “help me” or “can you hear me”, it’s quite the same here. Even if I was to believe to DS made DDLC as a standalone game (unrelated do PL) then either he would have done those things so alike because : 1° development of both game at same time, thought it would be fun to mix up things for easter eggs or just because he thought it fun 2° it means that someone in PL is going to look a lot like Monika in DDLC (trapped in a fake world, trying to reach someone for help/comfort).

The big thing is… Will Project Libitina be “surreal horror” and break the fourth wall and all that stuff Doki Doki did. Or… Will Project Libitina will be closer to “classic horror” with a story like Amnesia/Penumbra/Soma/Fear/Outlast (terrible experiment who went wrong, and you discover all of it).

I fee like another surreal horror would be welcome. Never seen much game with this genre, it’s pretty new for me so it makes all the others horror games feel “different”. I’m not saying a good horror story doesn’t drive you nut, ofc game like Soma made me sh’t my pant a couple of time (Damn the monster with the elevator, or the guy walking really fast in a diving suit). But surreal horror can be really fun with a good story. I just gotta hope PL brings choices so you can feel more connected to the MC.

It look very close to DDLC, I’m pretty sure DS was inspired by it for DDLC. The whole characters personnalities looks alike, and the School festival. It feels nice to see something more “light” after DDLC :°, it sure relieve the pressure from the PTSD DS gave us :p.

I agree that the “speaker” has many similarities with Monika but at the same time, like xae-chan stated, it doesn’t feel quite like her. Maybe it’s Monika but with a different mentality? Monika after overcoming her insanity for the MC or before developing such madness? Monika after being released from the game’s control or before being imprisoned? Who knows… it definetely speaks like Monika but it doesn’t convey the same feelings

I guess that in the new project there are going to be many nods towards Monika and DDLC. A character who looks like her? Maybe. Someone who speaks like her? Probably.
I’m sure that there are going to be plenty easter-eggs for us to find 🙂

I guess that DS is not going to do a game like DDLC. I mean, we would expect some kind of 4th wall break and if we already expect such a thing, what would be the fun of it, right? So I guess he will do something different. If there are “surreal horror” features, they will be very subtle. That is to say, I’m expecting a “classic horror” game with a very deep story and possibly “surreal” features very well hidden. He has a very hard job to do, and that job is to impress us ahaha.

The bad thing of 4th wall break is that once you’ve seen one, you probably have seen all of them. In my opinion, innovation while playing with this is pretty hard. It sure makes the game feel different though. I really also expect PL to have a “deeper” MC. A MC that you can relate yourself to , you know? After feeling the powerlessness of DDLC’s MC, I’d love to have options that actually are meaningful, because, let’s face it, in DDLC options are just useless, right? Ahaha

I’m guessing the speaker is the same one from Monika’s base64 dialogue. The one that “escaped an unholy establishment with some others”. But at the time of the message in Monika’s file, those others have already died. Seems he/she wants to either “go back” to the establishment or “go back” in time to save them.

Also, if we’re going for 4th wall breaks, then I’m gonna say he/she’s talking to the player. Someone that’s been watching over them and helping them to make decisions that would let them escape. Someone who he/she can’t see, but can see him/her and knows that everyone has died since their escape. Someone who couldn’t put a stop to it.

“I think you might be able to go back…or however you want to put it…”
“…To go back and tell them what’s going to happen.”

This might mean that as the player, we’ll be able to make a new choice when reloading a save because we got new information from the future? I like the idea, actually. It fits well with his style of fully implementing a visual novel’s capabilities into a story and in my opinion would hit people’s expectations to have a story like that.

If I remember correctly, on a reddit AMA Dan said that he’s working on a VN with a “more traditional story” and “some cool elements, without the kind of gimmicks that helped DDLC capture a wider audience”. With that in mind, I feel like there’s a possibility that we could be getting a normal visual novel based on Portrait of Markov [with the Project Libitina site in mind], which I’m fine with. I’m sure it’ll be an amazing experience either way, since this is Dan we’re talking about.

One thing I wonder, is the “before DDLC”. It would clear up a lot of thing to know how the past actually come to exist in DDLC, like how do the Dokis have memory of the club if the story started when you launched the game. It means that before you had downloaded the game, Monika was already “existing”. I feel like it’s just stupid to thing about that, most likely DS never thought about that and didn’t try to make it logical.

When I said I wanted more surreal horror, it’s mostly because I never saw much of it in the first place. I believe, that one in a while it can be a really fun experience. It just needs a fun concept in the first place.

I played a bit Kawata, and hanako reminds me a lot of Yuri. I saw it was made by passionate, and free, I gotta admit VN are something I never expected to be like this. I mean, being bigger than the “manga about girls with big attributes and only driven by MC’s desire”. So, seeing free stuff like this and with interesting story, is a good surprise for me.

This would have been very cool, but DDLC doesn’t allow us to “mess” with the saved games, obviously,deliberately.

Trying to avoid Sayori’s suicide is impossible (trying to load the game will make the game “crash” but I don’t know what happens if you try to save, I guess nothing…)
Avoiding Yuri’s suicide is also useless ( loading the game will skip forward and saving does nothing at all )
Trying to “hard copy” previous saved games will trigger Monika’s mocking “You’re very funny [player]”

Maybe in the next game? But I don’t think so. Oh, well such a shame ahaha.

Yes, I’ve read that somewhere too. I think that a “traditional story” would be better than another “surreal” one. Afterall, we’re already used to paranoia, right? Ahaha

So yes, Markov or PL are the “safe” bets for the new game

For the next game is what I meant. A mechanic to avoid the deaths of the characters that died after escaping the establishment with the main character after learning how it happens. Dan did say it wouldn’t have the same gimmicks as DDLC, but that doesn’t mean it won’t break the 4th wall. DDLC became popular because it was basically a trap. Something meant to lull the player into a false sense of security before hitting them with a sledgehammer.

We will never know about DDLC’s past unless DS confirms anything about it. This is just like The Binding of Isaac story. It was all speculation until Edmund (the creator) said that the theory one guy said was correct (maybe this will happen too?) . Although , we already know that Monika “existed” before DDLC came out as a game.That’s the only “safe” thing we know about the past. Their memories, the other girls… all is speculation right now. There’s a slight chance that DS didn’t think about the past thoroughly, but I really doubt so. He’s just teasing us ahaha.

Basically, everything starts with a good idea. Then the success of the idea depends on how you develop it. VNs were (and somehow still are) quite underrated. It’s true that most of them are “slice of life” mangas that really make you want kill yourself… but then there are masterpieces like this one. You only have to search in the right place, right? Ahaha

I must confess, that I also like drama VNs… Even if sometimes they are a bit too far-fetched…

Oh well, each to their own, right? Ahaha

Oh, sorry, I didn’t get it 😛

It’s possible and it makes sense too. Trying to avoid the mistakes we made in the past by knowing the future. Sounds pretty cool and it would add an interesting “game mechanic”

But an idea has come to my mind. A pretty crazy idea actually…

What if, when the next game comes out, after sometime or immediately even, DDLC gets “updated” so we can “mess” with the save files?

That would be pretty rad too

I found the AMA: i.~.png

I also think that Markov and PL are related, after all they do seem to have a lot of similarities lol. I DO think Libitina will be an antagonist in the game (if it’s even about Markov, it could be something entirely different for all we know) since Yuri describes it as a book about someone who gets targeted by escaped experiments, but I think the story will be a MUCH more complex novel. Based on Yuri saying that “The main character has to choose who to trust”, I think there will probably be a lot of difficult decisions that make us question morality. Though, this is all just speculation. I like to emphasize that, because there are a lot of people who trust everything anyone says and take it as fact.

Thanks for the AMA ! This really reminds me of DDLC’s official fan art artist Hannah (I think). She will be remembered mostly because she created Buffsuki rather than the official art… But it’s ok as long as she’s happy with it.

Surely, Markov and PL are related. Too many coincidences, right? But I really don’t know what will happen. Will Libitina appear as the antagonist(like Subject 617)? Will even Libitina appear? Oh well, we just have to wait. I’m really looking forward to the hard choices thing. I really want to question my morality and see what happens when we mess up. I want meaningful choices. Different paths. A story that completely “engulfs” you in it. I think that’s probably DS’s objective for the next VN.

That’d be so cool 🙂

Surely, Markov and PL are related. Too many coincidences, right? But I really don’t know what will happen. Will Libitina appear as the antagonist(like Subject 617)? Will even Libitina appear? Oh well, we just have to wait. I’m really looking forward to the hard choices thing. I really want to question my morality and see what happens when we mess up. I want meaningful choices. Different paths. A story that completely “engulfs” you in it. I think that’s probably DS’s objective for the next VN.

That’d be so cool 🙂
That would be really cool :), I am very excited for what they have in store for us.

I will definitely give it a try after I read all the stuff that I have left.
Man, why do I like scarring myself mentally so much?

Speaking of Higurashi, I’ve actually been hearing a few people comparing DDLC to it. They’ve said it’s better, so I got it on sale. But I’ve got some other VNs to get through too… They said that there’s a patch you’re supposed to put in to improve artwork and stuff.

Yes, get the patch, it improves a lot of things. And CGs, gotta love them.

Comparing both can kinda make sense. But Higurashi is much more of a big Mystery. You don’t know what it is about that easily. Gotta delve in it, and emerge scathed but alive.

This might mean that as the player, we’ll be able to make a new choice when reloading a save because we got new information from the future? I like the idea, actually. It fits well with his style of fully implementing a visual novel’s capabilities into a story and in my opinion would hit people’s expectations to have a story like that.

YES! We have a winner, And you’re my hero for finding the penultimate answer that makes sense. (If I’m right, ahahaha.) It feels like the sort of thing DS would do:

Who here would not play the next game? Even the haters will have to visit just to trash talk it.

I’m definitely going to play his next game. Though, It’ll probably be paid due to the two reasons that DS said DDLC was free for not being a problem anymore. [I have money saved onto my steam account specifically for the new game lol], so the chance of haters visiting it will be less likely. Also, I like kwhero’s theory, too.

It has been up and running since the 2th of November. Most of the 700 comments are pure speculative material with facts and evidence behind them. It makes me so proud that we have achieved such a good performance 🙂

BTW, I’m sorry for my big wall of texts. I wish I could have done them shorter… That’s what happens when you’re used to RFCs ahaha

Never EVER be sorry for doing walls of text with substance. There is not enough of those.

Maybe I’m just too weird, but I wish we had more of those.

Ahaha if you enjoy walls of texts then this thread must have been heaven for you 😛

I think the biggest “thiccest” wall of texts are comments 374 and 375… Sheesh, I don’t know what I was thinking when I did them…

EDIT: I must confess that I love walls of text with heavy meaning. It really encourages you to think and keep going. If you survive them…

I remember this one, was an interesting read, despite not knowing what MGQ is. heh 😛

I feel pity for Monika as she “falls in love” because we are the only thing she can see of the real world. She is still locked, even with all she tried to do. Truly a sad story, especially when you know no one, even us, can understand the slightest what she has to live through. And how she probably isn’t aware that, had she been able to see more, she probably wouldn’t care for us.

edit : like some become obsessive about her, she is obsessive about us. What irony.
Because unlike the real world, she probably has nothing that can show her that obsession is not the only path. And is stuck in it

MGQ stands for Monster Girl Quest ( not advisable for faint hearted people 😛 )
It’s an EVN ( or HVN) that has some “similarities” with DDLC ( like I stated in that infamous wall of text. It also serves as an example for some far-fetched theories like Sayori’s trying to outsmart Monika etc)

I am really doubting whether if Monika “loves” us or not. Afterall, she doesn’t know the meaning of love… A strategy to drive us closer to her so when the time comes we will be eager to do anything she says? Maybe… She’s really cunning… Making us feel bad for her to take advantage is something Monika would do, right? Ahaha

Anyway, if she really “loves” us, then it’s pretty heartbreaking yes. Grasping the only thing she considers “real” and then losing everything… Oh well, like you have said, we will never be able to understand her. Man, AIs sure are hard to comprehend, ahaha

Going even further off this theory, my guess is we might be seeing that exact same note somewhere in the next game, minus the “2018” part. This could be what Dan was talking about when he meant “cool features” on that reddit AMA.

2018 wouldn’t be too bad to expect for a release considering he’s been working on it for awhile. I just hope it doesn’t end up being rushed to meet a quick number in an easter egg. I’ve never really minded game delays since they help to make sure everything is right on release. But the bad thing about them is that sometimes they build up the hype too high and sometimes people end up disappointed. But however it goes, I’m sure it’ll be a great read.

I’m not worried about the game being rushed, as he’s been working on the game along with DDLC for the past few years. He said that new information on it wouldn’t be revealed for a while, he seems to be taking his time with this one, which is a good thing.

On a reddit AMA, Dan stated that he’s been working on a more traditional visual novel, which is where we got that information from.

Dearlaice Gortaigh has Doki Doki Literature Club 8 Jan @ 2:27pm
kwhero449 has a point. Even DS is scared of the hype (like the reddit AMA stated)

That’s why he’s trying to cool off the situation ( controlling the tweets, the announcements etc) or at least he will try harder in the future so people won’t get disheartened by the new game because they had impossible expectations.

Either way, I have an open mind concerning the new game so anything will be warmly welcome

DearG, I still haven’t know that if Monika is a villain or a good guy in the next game.. Since the next game take place on another timeline and we got some clue that this AI girl would be in the next game as another character.. So what’s your awnser the all knowlage Gman??

kwhero has Doki Doki Literature Club 8 Jan @ 7:35pm
Man, some of those special poems completely lose me… But a few lines from “A Joke” caught my attention.

“Suddenly, the girl hated herself for being in love
This contradiction caused the script to derail
The universe started to collapse, but she killed herself just in time”

I know I’m pushing the Sayori theory a little harder than I should, but there’s just too many weird things about her death for me to ignore. Like the phrasing “but she killed herself just in time”. It makes it sound like she did it to save the universe from collapsing. This poem could be written by Sayori, Monika, or just by Dan.

xae-chan has Doki Doki Literature Club 8 Jan @ 8:12pm
Push the theories as hard as you like. I believe there are similarities in all three characters. I relate more to the tsundere bc I see through the armor. I haven’t explicated the weirds for Natsuki but they are there.

The one shortcoming Sayori has is, even as pres LC she cannot write files into the game. None of the others can. So in one way, they’re all equal.
