Monika really needs to give Steam a good talking to, about going with the flow … when I connected with this linux machine at 5 a.m., there were pages and pages of topics. Pretty sure over a thousand active.

I haven’t shut it down.

When I went to the Win7 beast, DDLC discussions had been whittled down to 23 pages. 3xx topics. Just tried to Ctl-back browser in hopes of retrieving the old DDLC discussion front page but that didn’t work. Tried searching an old inactive page and it can’t find it. Not surprised.

After our topic got gutted, I had two suspects for ‘banned’ and cruised until one paid off. He was quoted in another topic comments, it marked in orange ‘banned’ – not the treatment we got.

We got a special treatment huh?

Probably to fully enjoy DDLC’s deleting spirit! Ahaha

Jokes aside, tomorrow I’ll write THE email *wink wink* and send it to you so you can give me feedback. And if you give me the green light, I’ll definitely send it afterwards.

Is that ok? Man, I’m so eager to write it! Ahaha

Fine by me. I was about to send you another transcript – and 17 more comments brings us to …
1200! (Steam count). Also, is it OK if I put your poem on the website?

Sure thing! If I had to see it somewhere, what better place than your website? Ahaha

I like it, but would it be possible to make it look like an in-game poem? You know, with the white background and black letters? I’ve noticed that the font is already the one used in the game.
Also, it reminds me of a certain someone… Ahaha ( good presentation :P)

If you don’t want to change it, is good as it is right now.

BTW, I forgot to put a title, so I think I’ll call it Mirror

I thought about it and then said to myself, Why not have them both? I’ve done that for other poems. PITA tho’ turning more text into images bc WorDpress is so stupid.

Ok everyone, wonderful news!

The other day I sent to DS himself an email with a share of what we’ve been doing here as a token of our dedication and love to DDLC. And guess what? He answered back!

Below you will find the email I sent him and his answer:

Email

Dear Dan Salvato,

I am Dearlaice Gortaigh and I’m writing you in behalf of my Steam Community thread in order to let you know what we’ve been able to achieve.

First of all, I would personally like to thank you for taking the risk of making DDLC a reality. I guess that you must have heard that from pretty much
everyone , but still, I really wanted to express my gratitude.

I suppose that at this point you are already aware of the huge impact the game has had in many topics and fields,and even people, but I wanted to show you what I consider
a huge achievement.

As you surely know, Steam is a gaming platform where DDLC is available for anyone to download, with its own discussion and artwork community.
Even though it has a discussion community, people don’t use it as such and tend to opt for other alternatives, such as Reddit. Maybe that is because
most of Steam threads are either short questions of people looking for a solution to an issue or the ranting of players about a certain topic. The beginning of our thread is no
different. I started it asking for information about an in-game file. I got the answer and it should’ve ended at that point. But I decided to try something new. Something that I hadn’t
seen on Steam before. I decided to propose a theory and thus start a serious discussion. At that time, I didn’t know what was going to happen, but I decided to go forward anyway.

Its start was humble, only a few people got interested, but with the pass of time, more people got attracted and it started to steadily grow in numbers. Even some people have stayed
from the very beginning, which was around November 2nd of 2017, up until now.

I think it’s very remarkable how some people have decided to open their minds and share their opinions and knowledge about the game. Personally, that’s something I had never seen before
on Steam. I even adventure to say that our thread is the only one that has achieved to maintain a serious discussion about DDLC that even has been able to make some breakthroughs regarding
some aspects about the game. But what I truly find fascinating is how some strangers have been able to team up and work together moved only by the love and dedication to a certain topic.

That love and dedication is what I wanted to share with you since that is exactly what you have done by releasing this game. I’ve thought that it would only be fair if we did the same. At the end of this email you will find
attached the almost entire transcription of the thread, made by one of our dearest and most loyal members of the thread (xae-chan). Additionally, I will put the links to both the aforementioned thread and
to a website he has been making.

Steam Thread: http://steamcommunity.com/app/698780/discussions/0/1479857071251131988/

xae-chan’s website: https://wwwddlcrl.net/

I don’t expect you to read the transcriptions nor even the thread. I believe that you are a busy man and you probably have better things to do. Howbeit, if you are curious, I will also put the links of the , what I find,
the most interesting topics and theories we’ve been able to eagerly discuss:

Please notice that I’m not asking you to neither confirm or debunk anything. It is just for you to read in case you want to do so. Also, this is absolutely not any kind of pressure to you nor your team. The last thing I would
like to do is troubling you in any way. Finally, there is no need for you to answer this email. The fact of being able to make it and send it to you is more than enough for me. I just wanted to show you what you been able to
do and I think that this email has been able to convey it, or at least, I hope so.

Once again, thanks for everything.

Yours sincerely,

Dearlaice Gortaigh

Answer

Hi Dearlaice,

Thank you for sharing this. While, as you mentioned, I’m not able to go through or discuss the content at length, your passion for DDLC is apparent and it always warms me to see my work create a meaningful experience for others. I hope that you create lasting friendships and continue to share your passion through creative work. And I will always strive to help create more meaningful experiences such as this one.

Kind regards,
Dan

I really appreciate his quick and cordial response. But what I truly cherish is the fact that he has answered me at all! Man, I wish all developers were like him! Ahaha

He likes to leave the theories alone. Whether that’s because there’s not nearly as much of an underlying story as theorists suggest, or just because it’s fun to read them all without ever confirming anything, who knows? But it’s great to talk to your fans. Popular content creators might not have time to respond to everybody, but it’s always awesome when they do what they can to keep a connection with them.

xae-chan has Doki Doki Literature Club 30 Mar @ 7:23pm
DG might seem to be ‘the face of PIANO Theory”, his topic, but make no mistake. There is NO first among equals, everyone who contributed to the 1200+ comments has a share in what we created together. Dan Salvato’s response is a reward to all of us.
#1102

orian34 has Doki Doki Literature Club 30 Mar @ 7:45pm
I’m pretty sure the “you” was for everyone 😉
Also, it’s fun, because of his last sentence it almost felt like something I could’ve wrote. In another time?

Always good to know the insights of the creators perspective!
So yeah, great job everyone!
#1103

Dearlaice Gortaigh has Doki Doki Literature Club 31 Mar @ 6:42pm
There is NO first among equals

When I wrote the email I was going to write it using “we” instead of “I” but I thought that it might be a little bit weird so I decided to write it in singular.

Like xae has said, everyone who has contributed, even if only a single line, it’s included in the email.

I’ve had a good time with all of you and it’s been a pleasure discussing and working together.

Hopefully we will meet again in the next game! Ahaha

Steam swallowed yesterday’s reply, DG. I don’t believe it was MMMonika. Take two …

Next game? No one will be able to stay away.

I think I had my epiphany or a deja vu that hasn’t happened yet. Here’s how it goes:

The next game indeed will have NO connection to DDLC, nothing implied,hinted. It’ll be like it never existed. It will be very traditional VN with depth and character development. There will be easter eggs and mind♥♥♥♥s (cf. Mdpnfbo,jrfp) totally different from DDLC.

Main story will be somewhat resolved but with tantalizing loose ends to be explained in the third VN.

It will merge the two sets of incomplete narrative into a whole, like a jigsaw puzzle and the three story arcs will be beginning, middle, and end. That’s my intuition, anyway.
#1105

orian34 has Doki Doki Literature Club 2 Apr @ 9:29am
huum, maybe. I won’t say much more about my hunch for now. I want to wait a bit before then.

Yup, seems pretty much like that yeah. A very good classic VN with some discrete winks to DDLC (maybe) .

I think that it will bet for making tough decisions which will probably question our morality. Something hard to digest, you know?

And a third VN trying to collect all the pieces together… I can really see that. Would make sense actually. But that depends only if our suppositions about the second VN are “right”.

I would love some kind of ARG though… Make the community work together or something like that.

Anyway, we can only wait and see. Something that I think we excel at, don’t you think? Ahaha

I was just minding my own business, on the linux machine, steam display on laptop, I’m looking up something and viewing the external 24″. It hit like a meteor, the whole scenario unfolded in an instant. Time will tell.

Reminds me of a book trilogy I read when I was a kid. The first two had seemingly nothing to do with each other, but the last one ended up tying them together to give more resolution to both. It’s a neat trick and definitely possible. (But we know nothing like that was planned at the time of DDLC’s release)

mystic_man95 has Doki Doki Literature Club 2 Apr @ 11:12am
It would be great if he did the seemingly unrelated next one, and then made a third one that connects the first two. It looks like DS likes to jump around with vastly different projects though, so I’d be surprised if we get a third VN anytime soon after the second, if ever. I think he really wants to make some type of fighting game.

If he does confirm a third game, the connection idea would make some sense because I’m pretty sure he was working on the next one at the same time as DDLC, so a connector game might have been his plan from the beginning.

Another way it could make sense (assuming the first idea is wrong) is that it gives him more time to work on DDLC content that was previously unplanned, but now is going to be made due to the popularity.

Regardless, the next game will probably be great. Any extra DDLC content/easter eggs or a third game would be bonus. Fingers crossed for achievements and trading cards/profile backgrounds/emoticons. I’d be willing to pay up to $60 for the game at release just based on the quality of DDLC.

Yup. Before making this he was already ” famous” for making SMB mods. I guess that he wants to make a fighting game on his own now that he has more confidence.

All depends on the second game. It was indeed already being developed when DDLC’s idea appeared and then they decided to “mix” the games. If the game’s not out yet is for a reason…:steammocking:

DDLC content? I don’t think so. I mean, maybe some translations but that’s it. I don’t expect extra content like expansions or whatever. In my opinion, the game is perfect as it is! Ahaha

I really hope the next game to be amazing. But I just don’t want it to cost that much :dosh:
Can we get a discount for being super duper fans? I wish that was true! Ahaha

I’ve never seen a visual novel (on steam) cost $60. Even 60+ hour ones top out around $40 on steam. But stuff that Key develops can get around $100…

You were helpful with me on the decompiling and stuff so you earned it. 🙂 It’s been useful on the website, making pages better with pieces of dialog. Letting the dokis ‘talk’ is better than explaining it like a wiki.

The picture hurts so good! Ahaha ( Man, it’s so accurate…)

Anyway, is there a newer version of KS? I have V 1.0 and I’ve enjoyed it a lot.
If there is indeed a newer version, would you kindly tell me? I’ll be super grateful if you do it :steamhappy:

Quite a lot, but mostly for Hanako’s route. You know, the ‘official’ route has been quite butchered from the original ideas

I was in the impression quite some routes are more or less touched up. That is why I’m really leaning toward having second run with it on all routes. I personally would like to see how they manipulated Shizune route, I’ve already spoiled the major points, if you have managed to avoid play first spoil later! But I’m still running a reminder routes on official before going there. I downloaded it some time ago, but as I’m in the middle of re-running I should finish it first.

But this is quite beside the topic here at hand. I will excuse myself for delving into this. But the picture just… hit a spot. 🙂

Oh, don’t worry about that.

We’re open to anything right now so there is no need to excuse yourself 😛

And yes, that artwork was really “adequate”. Ahaha

Steam has such talented artists… Or re-posters :steammocking:

Weird. I think somebody doesn’t like us. When I logged on yesterday morning, our topic took about three minutes to be dredged up and the usual navigation was gone. Just like the other 3000+ that went behind The Wall. Maybe somebody jumped the gun.

The Doki label was missing in community discussions too and some game I never saw before was the only link. I wasn’t surpised because I’d managed to resurrect that Aurora SCR Doki thread. Heh.

That “everything has been found” is weasel word misdirection. That Yuri’s damn monstrosity was ~found~ a long time ago and most everybody who encounters it runs away. We gave it our best shot and failed.Well, as Mulder once said, “The truth is out there.”

I resurrected Auror SCP meets DDLC and it hasn’t been killed yet.

The active threads are getting smaller; it’s fun to find some older ones and drop a comment or two. And it probably annoys Steam.

So I’ve deceided to play through the game again, and have found a weird detail of Monika. When you and her are in the abyss together, you can see two little beady “eyes” in (reflecting against?) the black part of her eyes. Does anyone know what they actually are? A friend mentioned it being a glare, but it obviously isn’t, as the glare is pure white against her iris. Its been throwing me off and I can’t stop seeing it now. Could it be the players’ eyes reflecting off of Monika’s?

I remember someone saying it was a white square, possibly like the thing we see in one of the .chr files

Hello again guys. I’ll put here the links to what another guy previously said about Monika’s eyes in the Void and also what I said at that time. Hope it helps! :steamhappy:

https://steamcommunity.com/app/698780/discussions/0/1479857071251131988/?ctp=7#c1620599015879106728

You probably won’t believe me, but the first time I played this game I seriously felt that something was wrong with Monika’s eyes. I really didn’t know what, but I didn’t like the feeling that those eyes were giving me… I thought she had some sort of little eyes inside her eyes… Pretty stupid right? That’s why I threw that idea away and moved along. But to think that it could have been a reflection… Brilliant! I’ve tried to locate them again in her smug picture and you’re right. A white filling with a black dot in the middle can be seen

I’ve always wondered how the MC looked like. Not for the other girls but for Monika. I thought that we were like some sort of moving camera or something. But a moving hole… makes more sense right? After her ” epiphany” she always writes about the hole she can see. A hole protuding inwards. A hole that Monika wasn’t able to make. And guess what? A hole protuding inwards has a smaller hole than a hole protuding outwards so I really believe it could be that!

As for being the Third Eye… I doubt it since it’s kinda “metaphysical” so I don’t think it’s related to that. If we consider that Monika is actually looking an eye… why not a robot eye? A synthetic one. A lens? Our lens to see the DDLC world actually. It could be right? How else we would’ve been able to see the game? Ahaha

Note: There is no such reflection in any of the other girls’ eyes. Their eyes look shallow in comparison. Even the “realistic” eyes.

Personal opinion: I’ve always thought the girls’ eyes were pretty weird… They look like some sort of power on [cdn.tutsplus.com] button or something but I guess that’s just the artist’s style.

Interesting, I missed that one. Our commenter on #378 said if he’d seen an eyeball ‘looking in” he would have freaked out. But he thought it was a white disk with a black dot, representing Hole in Wall.

n games, that OP. never saw him again. But it was xmas day.

Ok guys, I’ve just realized something.

Monika’s eyes are always the same, they don’t change. I mean, even during the game, it has the little dot. The only difference is that in the Void it has one more tiny black dot.

That implies two things:

1- If the reflection in her eyes is us, that means that she has always been able to see what we really are.

2- It’s just the artist’s impression and in the Void her eye is just more detailed and that’s it.

I would like it to be the first one though! Ahaha

I’ll post the image here and hopefully, if Steam doesn’t block the link, you’ll be also be able too see it.

Sorry, I had to use the “meat Monika” image because I don’t have more pictures of her.

My bad! Ahaha

The answer is obvious now… Her eyes are pokeballs.

Seems like it’s just the artist’s style.
Ran

Also, pokeballs. It can be both.

Hmmm, seems like it. Still, that’s a weird way to draw eyes…

Ok everyone,

I was just minding my own business , idly checking my old DDLC screenshots for no good reason , when I came across this:

https://ibb.co/mSRpB7

It’s just glitch Sayori. You surely have seen this image before. Her melting eyes and distorted smile are quite creepy… But have you been able to see Monika in the picture? Because she’s ACTUALLY in there. Well, sort of:

https://ibb.co/fZGT4S

Those are her hands! How come I hadn’t noticed that before? I guess that this fuels the theory that Monika is in control of absolutely everything after all… Or not?

Perhaps this represents Sayori trying to fight her back .

Take your pick :steammocking:

It’s amazing how after like 7 months of the game’s release I still discover things! Ahaha

there’s something strange with that URHcorner. I found a couplle of files, overlays, In games/images/bg/noface1.png,noface1b.png, noface2.png. Of course it’s just an easter egg, means nothing. Team Salvato took a greaat deal of time and effort for no reason …

Well, “everything happens for a reason” is a New Age illusion, just like the earlier one, “it’s God’s will!”

But I see nothing ‘random’ in this ~game~. I see planing, attention to detail, even the fonts used match the characters. Sayhori’s would worry a handwriting expert: erratic, this gitl has real problems.

Yes, I’d seen the the thing before without *seeing* it. So why not Monika’s hands?

But then I saw a way to see those hands as Sayori’s. Either way, a puzzle … ~found~

In my first run, I got Yuri/s Ghost 1 and then Ghost 2 consecutively and didn’t know enough to appreciate the significance.
