Couldn’t agree with you more here.

Ending with fan creations that are far off the original goal. That ticks me off.

And I agree with this too! Since we don’t exactly know what everything means, we just can guess and sometimes, those guesses can be “selfish”. Our selfishness can be on purpose or unconscious but in either case they may harm the game or even other people ( not literally of course) ! That’s why it’s important to stay “objective” so we can avoid these situations.

And one of the reasons I don’t like fanmade content is what you’ve said. It really gets on my nerves if they completely miss the point.

BTW, didn’t DS say that using sprites from the game was forbidden? I think he updated the license to use those but I’m not very sure. You should check that just in case.

Here’s what he said about fanmade content in the AMA.

“I was made aware of at least one fan-made ARG, and I loved the idea of it happening. I think DDLC has so much room for expansion in lots of different directions, and seeing people express their own creativity to make their own interpretations come to life is amazing.

I’m typically okay with fan content that uses official DDLC assets as long as it’s made clear that it’s fan work, and it’s not generating any revenue for anyone involved. I have an extensive fan content guidelines page here: http://teamsalvato.com/ip-guidelines/”

Then you have a green light !

It’s pretty cool of DS to allow people to use their CGs and stuff for free ( as long as it’s not used for lucrative purposes, of course)

Well, if you decide to continue with this project , please inform us how it’s going !

I know where you’re coming from. When I plunged into the game blind, I was neutral toward all but it only took the first sentence from the mc to dislike him.

As the story progresses, one can be critical of Monika and find a favorite from the other three. Ultimately, though, the story is a tragedy and Monika was the first victim. So the last test I did, replicating the fake Bad End beginning that DG suggested was The Last. I couldn’t go on with the other one.

That DS Monika.jpg (from a poster) he leaked gets to me every time I see it. Monika holding out the paper with the lyrics on it …

Anyway, I trust if the project goes ahead, it will be done right. And Sayori will be pleased.

I see it as the characters would enjoy as much time with the mc/player as possible whether it be in the normal game or a mod almost equally. Mods just allow them to be happy longer. Almost anything is better for them compared to when the game is off if we trust Monika. That’s my opinion on the it disrupts or hurts the characters argument.

As for messing with the story, it’s fine as long as you go into it knowing it’s an unofficial mod that’s just expanding on a pretty realistic/probably true theory.

While it can be agreed by some, it’s just that me myself am bound by the rule of never forcefully have power on someone’s free will. And that hurts me to see people robbed of their free will.

But as I said, it’s because I’m stuck with my principles. I couldn’t and wouldn’t tell people what to do(in a forcefull way).

Basically : because I can’t know what they would do, I can’t assume their acts for them.

Dan Salvato is just the best.

So in act 2, after Yuri pushes Monika and Natsuki out the door and is about to confess to you. She says she doesn’t care if Monika is listening. Does that mean Yuri knows Monika can see everything they do? Or does she just think Monika is eavesdropping?

Just when I thought this was the end… I was starting to miss this thread already ! Ahaha

If you want to skip the wall of text the answer is at the bottom

Anyway, to answer to your question thoroughly, I’ll start from the beginning of act2.

At this point, like we have talked many times in the past, everything’s “broken”. Actually, I think that the word “modified” feels more appropiate but you get the point . Like Monika herself says, she has let them be themselves (untie the knot etc etc)

She gave them the “freedom” to act more accordingly to their personalities and traits. For Yuri this meant the liberation of both her insanity ( which was also present but not active or asleep in act 1) and her Third Eye ( yes, I’m afraid supernatural power will meddle in this time if we consider that she has some in the first place)

As act 2 progresses, both her insanity and her Third Eye increment at a steady and alarming rate. If we do the Yuri route (avoiding Natsuki’s neck snap) the second day you get the first “deja vu”. As I proposed a LONG time ago ( maybe around comment 100? man, I feel old) that could be or either Monika “avoiding” you to see her cut herself (unlikely given her objective) , Monika trying to scare the out of you ( more likely) but playing dumb or Yuri’s Third Eye battling against Monika’s Third Eye ( or even her code…)

If we consider the Third Eye approach this proves that Yuri has a somewhat awareness that something’s going on. If not, then Monika is pulling the strings to fool us into believing that Yuri has some kind of power to freak us out. Or maybe she’s simply trying to derail the game again hurting Yuri as much as possible so we get away from her ( kinda what she did to Sayori).

In the second “deja vu” we can clearly see that Yuri really has some knowledge that something is wrong. Like she says: “Let’s escape from Monika’s slimy tongue” ( or something like that)

She knows that Monika has been doing stuff, let’s say, behind the scenes. She probably doesn’t know exactly what, but she sees that something’s off with her. Even at the end Natsuki sees that too. It’s arguable whether if the girls have ” free speech” or not at this point.Natsuki’s possesion is a good example that they probably don’t have it anymore. But, if they do actually have it and none of this is an extremely complex plan in order to fool us, then the girls somehow ( Third Eye? ) can see that something’s going on.

Moreover, she is perfectly aware that the Club is not a good place to stay, hence, she offers the MC to quit it and go to her home instead( I’d not recommend the MC going there though…)

The more Yuri insists to the MC that they should leave, the more Monika starts to “get involved”. She starts appearing in front of the MC in order to stop the conversation to go any further. She cannot allow such a thing and she must break through immediately. Like before, this could have been another cunning plan to fool us into making us believe that Yuri’s gone very insane ,Yuri actually can interfere with Monika’s game plot control or her Third Eye or yet again, she’s simply trying to get “her” route. The route she has wanted since the very beginning.

The third and last day. That day was critical. Both for Yuri and Monika. For Monika (if we trust her) she wasn’t expecting Yuri to be so agressive towards her. Yuri’s evolution was, let’s say, way too “advanced” for her.

For Yuri it was critical because she was actually able to speak her mind. Her “real” mind ( the obsessive and insane one). Again, we must consider that Yuri’s the one who’s actually speaking and not Monika. I believe that it’s Yuri though. If it had been Monika, well , it would have been more noticeable ( look at Natsuki ,right?)

When Yuri suggested her to kill herself, she got “annoyed”. Imagine being threatened or insulted by your computer or even your TV. This would be something similar (I’d be very angry and confused if I got insulted by a machine…)

Well, what I’m trying to say is that Monika left the room dumbfounded ( or at least appearing to be surprised) BUT she perfectly knew what was going to happen after she had left. And why is that important? Monika gave Yuri the”freedom” to open herself (literally) to us,but she had already decided her fate. It’s like giving you candy and then forbidding you from ever eating it again. A cruel punishment. Or payback?

Answer

And now to answer your question. Ahaha. Sorry, but I can’t help it to make a full answer based on my hindsight.

So what was Yuri referring to? Yuri was aware that she had a problem ( which is weird). Yuri was aware that both Monika and the Club had something odd. But at this point, after all the “deja vus” , if you pick Yuri instead of Monika when the game allows you to do so (and her eyes on a white background appear) and so on, we can say that Yuri means something “more” about listening.

Like, for example, “There really is something wrong with me, isn’t there” possibly she referred to her own code rather than her (when someone has a serious problem, they don’t admit it)

Maybe, even Yuri has been making references from the start of day 1 (when she speaks about the book and she says that someone wants to be evil) that she knows Monika’s observing. And how does she know this?. Well, just like before, her Third Eye powers allowed her to do so , Monika herself allowed her to know through the code (somewhat like what happened with Sayori) to drive her crazy or the game’s plot forced Monika to take dire measures and that allowed Yuri to “see” what was going on.

To sum up, I don’t think Yuri’s concerned about Monika eavesdropping, she’s more concerned of the punishment Monika will apply to her afterwards. Because she knows that her actions will result in something nasty for her.

Man, I really wish my answers were shorter ! Ahaha

It does seem to give a few hints that Yuri has some idea what’s going on. Maybe Natsuki really is the only one left in the dark. Poor Natsuki.

On another subject, I decided to test write the scene where Monika shows Sayori “The Lady who Knows Everything”. But of course, Sayori didn’t understand it after reading it, so I had Monika start to spell it out. But I’m not really sure how Monika should talk about “The Lady” since we never really decided who she was. If it were Monika, then that would be saying that Sayori is an idea taken from her head? Or I guess I just decided before that she’s just using the same imagery to try and make Sayori understand.

But I noticed another line that Monika seems to have taken out of Sayori’s “Bottles” poem. Sayori describes her happy thoughts as “little balls of sunshine” and Monika on the store page describes Sayori as a “youthful bundle of sunshine”. That, and how Dan mentioned that his favorite poem was “Bottles” makes me think a connection could really be there.

edit: Dan said “So instead of just thinking about the characters’ own feelings, I wrote them thinking about how each of them would feel when sharing with each other.”

There are two main ways I personally think this poem can go. If we relate it directly to the characters themselves (which would work best for this scene), I feel like Monika herself isn’t The Lady, but rather the feather (along with the other characters) who are helplessly floating in the wind. Then her falling and getting caught refers to her becoming self-aware and finding out how everything is meaningless/fake and the code (wind) predetermines exactly what will happen. The actual Lady might just be a metaphor to strengthen the depressing theme of the poem.

Now that I think about it, Sayori is the next feather to fall, but for her Monika has kind of turned into The Lady for her at this point. I still don’t believe that Monika would consider herself as knowing everything though. For instance, she didn’t know everything when it came to altering the code.

Overall, it is kind of undefinitve/up for interpretation who/what the actual Lady is, and I’m not sure Monika would actually even say. The main importance for this scene is just getting the general theme/truth across to Sayori, and getting the her reaction right. It might be the most critical scene in the mod. This seems to be the moment where everything started to unravel for her (depression and knowing more than we thought wise).

I had to come back to this bc I was AFK most of yesterday.Your principles resonate well with the foundation statement of one school of political thought: the non-aggression principle. Kudos.

“Sounds good. Better to avoid assuming it’s any character, so I ended up going with the Lady is the “truth of the world”. Vague, but it gets past the part.

Hmmm.. Well dosen’t Yuri also have that 3rd eye stuff like Monika but a bit weaker?? Since the MC says that the girl on the Markov Book looks alike like Yuri and she says like: “Oh Really??” and continue reading, and Monika just spoils those Warm moments cauz Monika knew that if the MC stay with Yuri longer the MC will love Yuri instead of Monika..

Well, Yuri can have it or not. I mean, nothing is for sure at this point! Ahaha

But, in my opinion, the chances for her to have Third Eye powers is very high. Why?
Because if we follow the approach that every girl is a part of Monika and viceversa, since Monika has for sure the Third Eye, then Yuri must have a part of that power too even if it’s only a little. Even though, there is a fair chance that Monika is making us believe that Yuri has powers in order to trick us. Monika really can’t be trusted! Not at all!

And yes, Monika is very concerned about Yuri getting the MC. That’s why Monika , at this point, is ready to do anything. Anything at all to stop the game. The game is Monika’s main adversary, and since Yuri is the game’s “preferred” character then Monika must end her in order to avoid Yuri getting her route and thus finishing the game without Monika reaching us, which has been her objective since the beginning.

Win10… I just HATE it so much. Sheesh, I would make a thread only to insult Win10…
But I guess that those already exist! Ahaha

And mystic_man95 your point of view about “The Lady” is wondrous! I completely agree with you and very well explained too! Congrats!

kwhero remember: “A poem sometimes isn’t about something. Maybe it’s just a conversation with the reader or just an idea. Something so abstract that can’t be labeled” Oh, and good reference about the “sunshine”. The link between Monika and Sayori (and the other girls too) is getting stronger!

So about Monika’s missing topic #26. I was looking around the ddlc wiki and someone put a quote from Salvato on Discord. “It was just a monologue I decided to remove from the script but forgot to compensate/replace it”. Just in case anyone was still curious about it.

Me too. It’s probably not important if he decided that the game could go without it. But if it helps, I found an old version of topic 7 before an update. Looks like it was changed because it made Monika sound harsh.

“You know what I hate the most about high school?”
“It’s how there are so many people who just cry for attention all over social media.”
“Like, do you really think that’s the best way to get people to care about you?”
“Broadcasting how horrible you think your life is?”
“Splashing water on your eyes and taking selfies while pretending to cry?”
“Writing bad poems that imply that you’re thinking about killing yourself?”
“I mean, it’s difficult because they’re not exactly aware that they’re faking it…”
“They’re just so wrapped up in their delusions that they don’t even realize they just want attention.”
“Look…”
“I think that if someone is truly depressed, they won’t even bother telling the world about it.”
“People suffering from depression don’t want attention, because they’ve already given up on the inside.”
“Their feeling of worthlessness is so overwhelming that they don’t even want people to tell them otherwise.”
“…Well, I guess I shouldn’t be generalizing.”
“After all, depression comes in many forms.”

[…]

“…You don’t struggle with depression or anything like that, do you?”
“Because you, too, have people who would want to save your life.”
“Maybe they don’t express it every day, or maybe they don’t even know how to.”
“…Man, humans are complicated!”
“But as long as you’re here with me, I promise I’ll take care of you, my love.”

I was over at itch.io and found this comment. Remember Natsuki eager for the festival and fried squid and the exchange with Monika.

Kresyda
I also think it frustrates Monika not only because it is grammatically incorrect but also because it actually IS a reference to Monika as a character in two ways: a) squid produces ink, b) squid, as well as octopus, can be viewed as a symbol of manipulation. So she is afraid that reference might somehow give her away.

Hmmm, brilliant !

That would explain why she had a “worried” face when Natsuki cracked the joke…

Oh well, even after 873 comments we’re still missing some details! Ahaha

BTW, thanks for the info

I keep thinking about those CHR files. We’ve tossed them around, one by one, at different times. I sat down with a small notebook and wrote down what I knew about that quartet.

First thing I remembered, I never had to change filetypes, my linux text editor rolled over the icons and showed me what they really were. Ogg, text, JFIF, and png. JFIF predates by a couple of years, c,1991. FWIW.

Natsuki’s reflected her writing style, simple and straightforward. An JFIF image that needed only polar coordinates to be recognizable. A woman. Older than our Dokis.

Sayori’s was more creative. Ogg > spectrogram > QR code > URL > projectlibitina. Wow. And that’s the only direct link in DDLC.

Monika. What can I say? A png image (makes a nice linux icon) with a flaming ring (ouroborus?) surrounding a square that is not a QR code but a binary wall of 1s and 0s. That becomes the long CAN YOU HEAR ME monologue.

Notice the progression.

And then we have Yuri, or does she have us? Our nemesis. The biggest challenge we’ve faced. I simply cannot believe with this buildup to 315 of the most obscure words in the English language, and a pattern with special EOL markers (?) that it is all for nothing.

Where do we go from here? NSA? Or …

Just thought I’d leave an update on the whole mod thing. I finished that scene a few days ago, but wasn’t really happy with it. Sayori’s thoughts are a bit harder to write for than I thought. If I go the depressed thoughts route, there’s only so much I can say and it’s already been described at other points in the game. But going for the cheerful Sayori-ish thoughts doesn’t fit my writing at all. So as soon as she went home and was alone with her thoughts, I hit a brick wall on what to do.

But I did find a good set of MC sprites.

Great find on the sprites.

What game Ch. are you working from? I have a female character somewhat similar to public Sayori, she took over the novel I was writing, made it better. I can probably capture that type of character.

I just sent you a short story with fun female lead.

Dearlaice Gortaigh has Doki Doki Literature Club 26 Jan @ 3:30am
For some reason, I still believe that Yuri’s poem is somehow related to Braille or something similar. I mean, it’s quite fitting right? A language intended for people who cannot see…

Oh well, I wish I could prove it! Ahaha

Well, Yuri can have it or not. I mean, nothing is for sure at this point! Ahaha

But, in my opinion, the chances for her to have Third Eye powers is very high. Why?
Because if we follow the approach that every girl is a part of Monika and viceversa, since Monika has for sure the Third Eye, then Yuri must have a part of that power too even if it’s only a little. Even though, there is a fair chance that Monika is making us believe that Yuri has powers in order to trick us. Monika really can’t be trusted! Not at all!

The Merch page has a calm Yuri right next to the Third Eye on the wall., also it called Yuri unhinged, kinda telling that her third eye is latent. https://store.teamsalvato.com/product/ddlc-exclusive-poster-yuri-unhinged-11×17/ Also it would seem her powers are STRONGER than Monika’s since also in the merch she is the only one not wrapped up in the ropes, but also the root of it https://store.teamsalvato.com/product/ddlc-exclusive-poster-yuri-unhinged-11×17/

I think I just realized why visual novels are a great way to tell horror stories. I was reading The Fruit of Grisaia and its not meant to be a horror game, but I think I managed to start with the heaviest character route. Unlike in a movie, you have time to develop characters. And unlike a book, you can add really unnerving music and images. And you’re forced to keep pressing forward on your own by advancing the text. Something about all of that put together has a lot of potential. Maybe I should get back into the genre.

Speaking of horror, I’m thinking in Salvato’s next game, that it might be pretty hard to avoid it. Since the main character knew that you were using your save files to help them, it might mean that there are a lot of ways that could have ended badly. It’s actually been awhile since I’ve played a VN with a lot of choices that actually matter. It’d be nice to have a bit of control.

Just hope that the next game have more ending than DDLC, since we haven’t fully know the story of DDLC and most of the clue we found may be 87% Accurate while 13% of it may be different or wrong.. What if DDLC is a full Dating Sim game… What will the game offer without that 4th wall breaking stuff.

The VN is the fruit of what the multimedia craze 25 years ago should have been. Instead it was just another teaching tool and when you throw some gee whizzery to boring educators, you end up with a boring product.

As for “choices that actually matter,” maybe VNs are a surrogate for real life? I mean, when you look back at your life, how much control did you really have?

Like, I was pushed into one path after high school and survived. The next one had ‘rules’ (aka show me more money) in the guise ‘we don’t accept some of your courses’ so you’re already behind the 8-ball. Fast forward 1-1/2 years and I’m coming down with some damn flu but not idk (mononucleusis) just in time for end of year exams.

A month in the New Year in bed throwing off an illness that never really goes away. Dragging myself around for a while, finally snag a job at AT&T. Soon my fiance graduates from uni. Later in the year we get married. I’m still taking catch-up courses evening at another uni (we don’t accept all of … ) and taking my first data processing course at a trade school and … 13 months since I got married and … drafted. ♥♥♥♥ing waste of two years and four months.

A few years, more quals, I changed careers, leaving 10 years seniority behind me. That’s only 30 years.

Fast forward through building WXIX-TV in Cincinnati,then Saudi Arabia, Greece, Belgrade, Providence, American Samoa, Tasmania and now I’m in far north Queensland, having outlived two wives …

So mayve VNs are doing their jpb, in a different way. I’ve been trying to structure the poem game without success. [player] may not have control but he sure changes the outcomes. The order gets shuffled from one poem but it’s recursive. It’s almost like magic. Or a Markov process.

I’m thinking of VN in a small scale, just a dramatized short story, not sure how I’ll go about the art cuz I can’t cut that. But I can script and compose with a handful of softwaare synths.

[Btw, your unRen has been such a boon, TY agn.]

If we’re right, [player] that’s you and me, us, are the link between here and what was being developed from 2015.

I’d be surprised if there’s any overt link to this game, that’s not to say some faint situation or character or a line of dialogue might trigger a response that would give us a little advantage. Playing this game is like looking into the soul of a demonlord. 🙂

Interesting that you say that, since I could’ve went the same “not in control” path. I was at the crossroads, a bit like beeing in a rocket crashing. But I decided to hit the emergency evacuation button. Granted, the landing was not easy, but now I’m in control and doing really good.

I wonder if I would still be there if I didn’t avoid the crash that awaited me.

Hum, so, I’m convinced DS made DDLC as a “human experiment” to know and see the reactions to different kind of situations. He probably did that research for his next game. To know what is the most efficient way to bring people where he wants them to go in his story. Maybe I’m overthinking it, but seeing DDLC and the man, I feel like it’s very possible.

Wow I left for a while, anyways I found out some pretty weird things in my absence. So as we all probably know by now, Monika has a twitter. In September 1st of 2017, a tweet was made linking to a twitter account called “p4talk”.

When using mytwitterbirthday.com, I found out that this account was made in DECEMBER, on the 27th, 3 months after the original tweet was made. I find that pretty weird.

One more easter egg thingy about Monika’s twitter: According to the “Extras” page on a DDLC wiki, on October 5th Monika apparently changed her twitter bio, which had base64 which led to a key cipher with the keyword “Libitina”, which translates to the title of one of Natsuki’s poems, open your third eye. Did anybody else know about these things?

Like we stated , we cannot use artwork as evidence to support our theories/ideas…
Even though, it’s full of symbols! The words in the background, the images, the ropes… Their message is pretty clear at this point, don’t you think? Ahaha

Yes, VNs are the perfect mixture of both films and books. If the VN is done properly, it can completely submerge you in its world for a very long time. Moreover, it can make you feel like you’re actually choosing your fate rather than just being a mere spectator.

Speaking of choices… I find them really interesting. Like xae-chan has said, even if we have them, do they really matter? I mean, it might appear we have control, but later then we realise that we’ve been powerless all along ( like in DDLC).

Anyway, I’m with you, I really want the new game to have choices that actually matter and that lead to multiple paths/endings ( which will be probably the case)

I agree with you. DDLC is definetely some sort of “human experiment” . Both inside and outside! Ahaha

Probably, like you just have said, DS will use the community’s “reactions” to adpat the next game to please us (torture us) even more. There’s nothing like making us believe what will happen in order to surprise us! Just like in DDLC but maybe even bigger! But I’m sure he will use other dastardly tricks that he surely has under his sleeves… I can’t wait! Ahaha

Thanks for the info! We knew about the “Libitina” thing but I was unaware of the “p4talk” stuff. Monika’s twitter is really mysterious… As much as her!

Here’s the original tweet:

If you click the link, it leads to a shocking, surprising…

Error page. The tweet that Monika originally linked on her twitter is unavailable, which confuses me a lot.

Edit:

So apparently it was originally a shared account that was hacked and eventually deleted, and then someone else took the name as Yuri.

Well, I bet that her twitter only exists to drive us crazy! Or to please the crowds… Or both! Ahaha
Somehow, I have the feeling that Monika’s twitter will be an ARG in the future or something similar. Well, that’s up to DS I guess.

Anyway, we mustn’t start splitting hairs with “Monika’s” twitter right now . I mean, probably that was just a tweet that DS regretted later and he decided to delete it just to avoid confussions and paranoia. But it also could mean something… but I suppose that if there’s no further information about the topic then I guess it wasn’t that important.

But thanks anyway! The tweet is really confusing and weird (and interesting too!)
