If you google the third eye, one of the fists sites shows you something like this:
The third eye is our ability to see what might be, to see potential…
I guess it`s as good a place as any to start my argument.

It refers to a level of sensory awareness that deals with foresight and imagination and is most common in dream-like states and under the effects of psychotropic drugs.
The repeated reference to it is the game essentially asking you to open your third eye, calling attention to its own multi-dimensional storytelling.
It`s a little like saying “There`s more than meets the eye, get it?” asking you to look for the hidden message.

Now if you play the game with this in mind it`s like looking at a puzzlebox, even from the first few glances most lines the girls have include several layers of deeper meaning, often on a subconscious level, on the one hand, just like a normal person would, on the other, the game is trying to peek your interest and engage your mind, making sure you know something is amiss.

It then gradually increases the complexity of its plot, building up further realities on top of each other until eventually even including you as the player, with a short learning algorithm, almost begging you to ask the question “What did the developer mean by this?” prompting you to go and search for many hours more after the game has already ended. (not to mention increasing replay value)

In short, the game was designed to capture your attention and reach you on a deeper level with a multi-dimensional message, which you are then tasked with figuring out. (Welcome to the last layer of the game, hopefully.)

The difference between our normal perception and a ‘third eye`s view’ (insert eagles can fly, ppl can try poem here) is the difference between playing through the story once, and looking at the game as a whole, examining each possible outcome, trying to figure out what the developer is up to. (Which you are specifically asked to do when deleting files.)

Essentially, by opening your third eye to the game, you are granting it the power of your imagination, and letting it scare you with it. Let me see if I can explain.

Solving mysteries from subtle hints, is largely done by drawing parallels such as the fact that the third eye having common references throughout the game makes it important.
You have to imagine a visual scheme of how these things are interconnected in order for it to work, for which a higher state of awareness, here known as the third eye, is perfect.

As for what that message may be is a whole another matter. The problem with non-linear schemes of thought is that they`re not easily transmissible, as evidenced by this thread and many like it.

It operates in a realm of possibilities and doubts rather than certainties, letting you draw your own parallels and conclusions to the hints provided. As you don`t usually have the necessary amount of information available to reach a definitive conclusion.

After that, how strong your imagination is, how open you are to the possibilities of parallel and spiritual worlds, how paranoid you are plus the numerous hints provided by the game work in tandem to create a personalized, fairly realistic and scary experience, which can only be seen after a sufficient amount of insight into the work.

Basically, the more of a thinker you are the scarier the game becomes, depending on how far you let your imagination go, not to mention the 4th wall break prompting you to think about OUR reality as opposed to just the game.

So thanks to the inclusion of ‘the third eye’ as the non-linear component of this story, the author`s hidden message could range anywhere from a simple
‘depending on how you look at art, there`s tons of things you can find meaning in, even ones the author hasn`t thought of’
through
‘let`s have an experiment to see what kinds of creative things for this story the community can come up with’
all the way to
‘Help! I`m stuck in a virtual world and this is a message back in time through the third eye! Save me!’
(There are several more far-fetched theories on the third eye one could draw upon.)

This isn’t just a Doki Doki Literature Club Theory. This is the Truth. The game isn’t just for entertainment. Doki Doki is a warning of a future to come. You may think you understand.

In case you still could sleep after playing this game, here`s an example of some basic AI conclusions based on the monika chatter.
…And there are many, many more scary things the game hints at 😀

The beauty of this third eye concept is that you might be overreacting to the game, but you might not be overreacting enough, it`s the uncertainty that brings a whole new level of scary to the genre.

I love it and it was beautifully executed.

I’d like to start by thanking you for joining the thread! A gush of fresh air is always welcome.

I agree with your explanation that the Third Eye is meant for us to see more than what’s to see. Many lines from the girls (more than you might think) have a much deeper meaning but only understandable if you’re able to see “through” the sentence ( just like your Yuri’s quote)
And also, like you have said, it makes you see that something is not quite right and makes you ask yourself what the hell is going on.

Again, you’re right. We wouldn’t be satisfied with simple elements out of place right? We want more, and that’s what we got, a much deeper and complex story for us to devour, not only once, but as many times as we need to satisfy our hunger. It’s impossible to play this game only once. At least, a second run is needed to fully understand everything. Like you have said, “looking at the puzzlebox”.

There’s nothing scarier than your own imagination right? This game achieves to make your imagination go at full throttle making you go crazy with it. That’s what’s so cool about the game! You almost have to make it yourself ahaha. You really need to have Third Eye powers in order to piece all things together… Sadly, like you have commented, we’re working on quicksand… Nothing is true yet nothing is false. Like Yuri says in one of her poems “God disproving the existence of god”
The more you think of this game, the more you get trapped… that’s the beauty of it. It’s scary because YOU make it scary. All the stories, theories… are fuel for our curiosity ( and nightmares)
The 4th wall break just makes this even funnier! (and more complex, scarier… you name it)

This is one reflexion I’ve tried to avoid… I know the Third Eye stuff, and actually all of the hints, easter eggs etc… could mean actually nothing. You give it the meaning, just like art but it would feel empty, hollow… so I’ve tried to wander off all the thoughts that went along that path but, of course, it’s a possible solution afterall… ( I do really hope this is not the true path haha)

I’m completely SURE that we have found meaning and solutions to things that even the creator hadn’t thought of. It’s impossible that he had thought of all of this beforehand… We have surpassed his reality and now we’re even pushing it even farther… but you know? This is fun! Don’t you agree?

I’m certain that I’m overreacting to the game… But that makes it extra special! More sauce to the meat right? Ahaha
This is helping me to express my ideas that otherwise would die inside my head. This way you guys can have fun and also think about what I’ve just said… And this works the other way around too! You can express yourself and make us think and feel your ideas. Just like this comment I’m writing. Thanks to you my horizon is wider 😛 New ideas will be able to flow and help us understand better what’s going on and why we should keep going.

And about the wall of text… you haven’t seen my previous comments, have you? THOSE are wall of texts ahaha so don’t worry. I’m glad that you came here and that you gave your opinion about the game. Feel free to come and write any ideas you might have here ! We will warmly answer them 🙂 ( btw you expressed yourself perfectly)

DG. I put a libitina txt file online just now. Since html is just code, I decided to look under the hood. No easter eggs but I was surprised anyway.

Random detail that probably doesn’t matter of the day:
Taking a look at the work of the Team Salvato background artist, a few of them were interesting. There are some backgrounds that were uploaded over a year ago, but aren’t attributed to any game. I feel like I heard that Dan’s been working on his other project for about 2 years? So the backgrounds could be related. The ones that catch my attention are the one that looks like a medical facility, and the one that looks like insane scrawling on a wall.

good find tho, never know when something may turn out useful

HEXILIATH the Med facility – across, no label but prob.same place
next 4, DDLC label, prob. artists initial ideas
teacher’s lunch room, tea set back wall – generic house, fence like mc’s
street, initial idea BG? – initial Sayori’s bedroom, calendar on wall corner torn off, big stuffed toys

next 13 could be anything

Very interesting. This one is titled “Lobotomy”. I was reading the wikipedia entry on lobotomies and thought this highlight was worth some attention.

“Effects
The purpose of the operation was to reduce the symptoms of mental disorder, and it was recognized that this was accomplished at the expense of a person’s personality and intellect. British psychiatrist Maurice Partridge, who conducted a follow-up study of 300 patients, said that the treatment achieved its effects by “reducing the complexity of psychic life”. Following the operation, spontaneity, responsiveness, self-awareness and self-control were reduced. Activity was replaced by inertia, and people were left emotionally blunted and restricted in their intellectual range.”

Reading this kind of reminds me of the club members, excluding Monika. Probably a long shot though.

that picture has two panels, curious. Yeah, what you said. So if the others were fragments of Monika prior to the experiment, they’d surely be somewhat impaired.

I just remembered what started as a short story and grew legs …

37. It’s the Third Eye, right?
38.
39. Anyway…I could be totally wrong about this. But I really think you might be able to do something.
40.
41. I think you might be able to go back…or however you want to put it…
42.
43. …To go back and tell them what’s going to happen.
44.
45. If they know ahead of time, then they should be able to avoid it.
46.
47. They should…if they remember their time with me in the other worlds…they should remember what I tell them.
48.
49. Yeah. I really think this might be possible. But it’s up to you.
50.
51. I’m sorry for always being…you know…
52.
53. …
54.
55. Never mind. I know that’s wrong.
56.
57. This is my story. It’s time to be a ????ing hero
58.
59.
60. Both of us

How can this not fit?

As always, good finding indeed! Pretty interesting artwork. We might even see some in the future right? Ahaha

I’ve noticed that most of the pictures not DDLC related look totally occidental. The ones that look asiatic could perfectly fit in DDLC but yet they were not used… Suspicious right? Anyway, speculating on this is too risky! 😛

When I translated the title with Google ( I know it’s not reliable at all) I got Robotomy

“When a person has very few emotions or vocal inflections and behaves like a robot as if they have had a lobotomy. Also, can use robotimized as in turned into a robot.
I just told Bob his cat died and he just shuffled down the hall with no response at all. I wonder if he’s had a robotomy.”

Pretty much it’s the same as a lobotomy ( but used in slang) and as xae-chan states, if the other girls are offshoots of Monika, they would totally have some impairments.

What I really find fascinating about that picture is that all the scribbles in the wall are in russian. I’ve tried to translate some words without much success but anyway here they go:

разодрАТЬ-Tear up
ран-Wounds
резАтД-Result
гнУть-Bend
дневник-Diary
Уватит- Enough
оцишу-Recur
лоботомия-Lobotomy
хаос-Chaos
нож-Knife

Terrifying words…

And what I find scary of the photo is the drill and the various knives… Isn’t the metal plate look like some sort of operation table? And are the scribbles writen in blood( already dry) ? But it looks like the words were carved rather than painted… Eerie picture indeed, I love it!

We knew that the next game was going to take place in the occidental world but we never knew exactly where… Most of us probably though America (like me) but in my opinion Russia is more appealing! Actually, some of the photos from before kinda look like if it was Russia right? The black car, the piers, the hospital…

It would actually be amazing if the next game took place in Russia! 😛

Anyway, thanks for the photos and your comments!

37. It’s the Third Eye, right?

39. Anyway…I could be totally wrong about this. But I really think you might be able to do something.

xae-chan, thanks again for maintaining the Dropbox and adding new stuff regularly! Also, thanks for the links! All of them very interesting, specially the “Hero’s Path” one… I never thought that something like that was so , let’s say, stipulated. Now that I think, many VNs that I’ve read follow EXACTLY the same path… And I think this one can too… I’m going to try but I’ll probably mess up:

Ordinary world: Monika as a self-aware AI lives in the DDLC world normally
The call to adventure: Monika notices the real world , our world
Refusal of the call: Monika makes attemps to escape but without much effort
Meeting with the mentor: Monika meets the MC
Crossing the first threshold: Monika falls in love with you and starts to make a plan to get out of her cage
Tests, allies and enemies: Monika starts to get rid of the girls and to modify the game for her own purposes
Approach to the innermost cave: Monika wants to be with you, no matter what. She has to fight against her own world
The ordeal: Monika batlles against the Third Eye and the game’s code.
The reward: Monika finally gets to be with you with her own rules
The road back: Monika gets deleted by the MC
The resurrection: Sayori becomes president and sees what Monika has done.
Return with the elixir: Monika deletes the game once and for all and asks indirectly ( with the .chr files etc) to the MC that she will (and the MC) are going to act.

I hope I got this right ahaha.
Maybe, the “Hero’s Path” will be applied in the next game…
Anyway, I found it really interesting, thanks for sharing!

We don’t know. It could take place in Russia… Why not, right? They’re pretty eager about human experimentation and pretty religious too.
We cannot determine that by the artwork because it could totally be unrelated.
We just have to wait and see ahaha

Internet? Nah, I don’t think so ( but it’s true that she has a lot of knowledge from the real world but that may come from her “humanity” if you assume that my theory above is correct)
What if, and only IF Team Salvato is the “facility” ? That would explain why she knows about other projects from him, and also it would explain the “Special Ending to the Special Player”
Could Salvato be the doctor from the webpage? I know this is extra paranoic BUT it could be.

Anyway ,phew, all of this speculation is making me tired ( too much thinking EUGH)
Now it’s your turn. What do you think? Did I finally lose my mind? ( most likely yes)
I’m looking forward your responses!

I keep coming back to this AI idea, how cool would it be to have scripts of characters that evolve from story to story as you play games with them? 😀 It`s multi-dimensional storytelling at its finest, every game would be different.

Well, it would be super amazing if that was possible but as technology is right now, scripts can only pretend to do that… BUT in the near future (probably we will see it) I’m pretty sure something like an AI that learns from past experiences and can develop a human-like character will exist!

Almost infinite replay value! Ahaha

DG, I think those Veliquent drawings are preliminaries; like Dan says ‘I want like blahblahblah’ and V tries to visualise that. Sayori’s unmade bed and stuffed animals.

Meanwhile, I hesitate to mention it but WTF! do you realize we forgot about the religious group? I dreamed about them last night. The first part is hazy, how I even got involved, but I was caught. Had the impression of American SW area. Large group tolerated in the community, one of many. They’ve been building up for many years, gradually subverting the religion to secular and militant.

Friends in low places, and high as well. They may not start a revolution but will take advantage of, as was said in ‘V for Vendetta’: “Somebody does something stupid.”

Yes, those pictures are the beginning of the end

Meanwhile, I hesitate to mention it but WTF! do you realize we forgot about the religious group? I dreamed about them last night. The first part is hazy, how I even got involved, but I was caught. Had the impression of American SW area. Large group tolerated in the community, one of many. They’ve been building up for many years, gradually subverting the religion to secular and militant.

Friends in low places, and high as well. They may not start a revolution but will take advantage of, as was said in ‘V for Vendetta’: “Somebody does something stupid.”

The religious cult… I’ve had them in mind but the thread has been thrifting towards another direction since, well, we pretty much talked about everything about the cult ahaha.
Also, we don’t have much information about it so I guess we just ignored it and moved along… Anyway, we could do some research if we run out of ideas!

And I’m relieved to see that I’m not the only one that is having haunting dreams about DDLC…

My dream happened a couple of days ago:

I was with one of my friends in some sort of office. A pretty small one. I told him to turn on the computer. The computer’s screen was abnormally big, it felt like we could dive inside the screen…

I told him to search some video on Youtube made by Yuri herself (weird right?) He searched what I told him but I don’t remember the name… I think it had “DDLC” and “2nd” or “part 2” in the title. He clicked on the first video and I told him that it wasn’t it, in that video there was some bad Youtuber making a sad DDLC playthrough.

I told him to click on the second one. The author’s name was “undefined” and its picture was blurry. Too blurry to be able to see anything. The video started with the DDLC menu and the “player” clicked on “Continue Game” There is no such an option in the real DDLC game right?
The video went black and a voice could be heard. It was a girl’s voice. It sounded mature yet childish at the same time. She had accent. I can’t recall what accent… To me it sounded like
from east europe. She was explaining her thoughts. I can’t recall what she was saying…

Suddenly in the screen appeared Yuri writing something in the classroom’s blackboard. The camera angle didn’t allow to see exactly what. She was wearing glasses and she was wearing her “weekend” clothes. After writing on the blackboard, she sat down on a chair, and looked directly to the camera. She said: “Lately, I’ve been thinking of my creator. Will my faith save me? Or it will crush crush CRUSH me?” Each crush was said louder and her face got sadistic with the last one.

Then the screen went black again and suddenly she was in the school’s pool, swimming. It felt like I was the one swimming, like if I was her and like I could control her actions, or better said, MY actions… I felt my skin wet and I was feeling really uneasy.

There were more students in the pool, and a lifeguard too. Someone screamed for help in the entrance of the pool. In my head the same girl’s voice talked to me ” You know what happened. You know what’s going to happen. Will you please just do what you’re told? ” After that I felt heavy and I started to sink. I was drowning… So I started to swim to the surface. When my head got out of the water the lifeguard was looking at me and he told me with a manly voice ” Go find some help” and ran to the entrance. I started to get out of the pool using the pool ladder while muttering to myself with the girl’s voice: “Just go walk and wait for him”

Then I woke up in real life with a deep feeling of dread…

This game sure is making my nights fun! Ahaha

No, more like they were willing and able to throw their support in with any drastic change, widespread civil unrest maybe. The guy I was with was definitely upper management but not the Big Boss. (Every level of a game has one.) A soft interrogration, he divulges a little something to get me talking. I’m the innocent caught up in something beyond me. I got the impression they’d not complain if the reincarnation of Curtis LeMay came along.

One weird scrap I remembered while out walking the dog. I said to the guy, “Your 2IC, he’s ambitious – and a sadist, Watch your back.” ?! No idea why.

Anyway, i was convincing in my role, he let down his guard and I slipped a little pill in his coffee when he wasn’t looking. Walked out of his office casually, out of the building and through the gate.

One thing from the early part of this dream, boxes of printed matter, like newsletters or magazines and I understood it was propaganda for the low level people.

So I gave it one more playthrough with a bit more critical eye and here`s what I found.

If you operate under the assumption that Monika is speaking to the player and not the character from the very beginning, the entire story takes on a whole new meaning. Lines of text jump out at you like strings of thread, painting a picture.

It becomes a 3 act play within a 3 act play with each of the characters representing one of the three plot-lines in the first act. Then a part of the game as a deconstruction of genres.

Natsuki is the lighthearted, simpler, more to the point and analytic side of the story, she represents the game`s first act, which is essentially a dating game. She shows you the highs and lows of simple storytelling with a distinct, easy to see purpose. You`ll notice that a lot of discussions with her involve analytical diatribes into the stigma around certain genres, in this case manga, which is also supposed to represent the virtual novel side of DokiDoki. Which pairs up nicely with Monika`s detailed analysis of writing in general and the whole first act`s insistence on deconstructing the tropes of the dating sim/VN, I dunno I`m lost on this thought, move on. She`s here to make you think hard about what you`re seeing and take your time, hence the third eye poem being hers. Which then in turn compliments Yuri in the second act by helping you enjoy the fun, more upbeat and analytical parts of the psychological horror genre, as well as the far less funny connotations of psychological trauma that behaving like a typical dating sim character implies (whoops I didn`t say that)

“Consider this a lesson straight from the Literature Club: Don`t judge a book by its cover!”
(Notice the “Literature Club” with capital letters)
“I mean, sometimes I like proving people wrong when they only thing I`m worth my size.”
“It`s fun when I get to be small and also better than other people.”
“The presentation is where you get to be creative and have the most fun.”
“It`s a million times more worth it in the end if just looking at it makes everyone`s eyes lighten up.”

Yuri represents the deeper, more romantic and symbolic side of the story, as well as its tonal shift, the more violent elements and the second act of the story. She`s here to help you get a feel of what both the genres of storytelling can contain. Help set the atmosphere so to speak. Just like Natsuki, she discusses her writing and feelings at length through a more introverted, more symbolic style. In the first act she acts as a simple romantic interest of the deep emotion scale where in the second act she explores the other end of the deep emotion scale.

“Surreal horror is often very successful at changing the way you look at the world, if only for a brief moment.”
“You must be willing tho open up to your readers, exposing your vulnerabilities, showin even the deepest reaches of your heart.”
Watching the fight between Yuri and Natsuki in act two is like watching the first two acts of the game point out each other`s hooks to the player with emphasis.
In the third act Monika pulls you aside hoping to pass along her message through the discussion of sentience and god before you get bored of the game and delete her, returning the story to its original track.

Sayori represents the game itself or the platform through which the story is told, she is here to be the mystery, the central hook and the third act. You will notice that her story-line has more to do with helping Monika and having fun rather than anything else. She also helps you experience the story by keeping you “On track” with her plot twists. She literally drags you into the discussion against your will and won`t let up until the story is told, she also has to break several times during the course of the story and ends up replacing Monika at the VERY END as the narrator of the story. (Game for author, get it?)

The main character is your lens for the story, he shows you exactly how you`re supposed to be viewing each of the girl`s and the parts of the game attributed to them respectively. You`ll notice that in interactions with Natsuki, he talks about how complex and deep simple stories can be, whereas in his interactions with Yuri, he talks about the setting, atmosphere, the feel and the psychological components of it all, rather than the book itself. With Sayori he`s focusing on the fun of it all and with Monika he`s genuinely making an effort to participate. (huh, go figure)
By the way notice how he speaks at the player more than at the girls.

Which leads me to Monika, she assumes the role of the narrator, patiently waiting for the player to catch up to what is really going on as you progress through each layer of the game. She constantly breaks the fourth wall and even at times entices others to do the same, even goes so far as to accuse you of cheating. She talks about writing for what is easier to relate to for a writer than his craft.
She reveals her hand in her first few lines.
“Especially when it`s something that doesn`t grab your attention, like literature.”
“You have to work hard to convince people that you`re both fun and worthwhile.”
not sure which conversation this is out of but also
“Or a conversation with the reader.”
“So putting it that way, not ever poem is about something.”
With Sayori, Monika frequently discusses the festival in detail one quote struck my eye
“Something that speaks to their creative minds.”
and it all ties up nicely right here
“I feel like learning and looking for answers are the sorts of things that give life meaning.”
“But it was kind of on my mind, so that`s what I wrote about.”
“Because if we had all the answers, wouldn`t the world start to lose its meaning?”
“It`s almost like having our own little Literature Club, don`t you think?”
Adding a few more lines
“To inspire them to find the same feelings that brought you here in the first place?”
“But the cool part is, we`re also going to let anyone else come up and recite poems too!”
makes the entire picture look like giant recruitment poster inviting the community to come and participate on the hype of the next game. Perhaps they`re making a con? I see a crowdfunding site in our future.

I also can`t help but notice that Monika is listed under “Special thanks” with the player, which makes her out to be a real person, or some form of character from a different game.
In my mind I see a conversation between Salvato and the person who had originally had this idea of a story with a message. A message so long, that it could take years to tell, which makes me think that the Monika chatter are the writer`s opinions. (Notice that she discusses a lot of highly contemporary social issues)

that`s just mean.

OMG I love this level of symbolism, it`s like looking at a picture in my head! If that picture is supposed to be translated to binary or base64 I give up though… and the song at the end probably wrote its way into the hearts of many.
I hope I`m not redundant 😀 haven`t had the time to read the entire discussion, this took me a day.

Before I start my reflexion, I’d like to thank you for sharing your point of view. Whenever I propose something new I always think “inside the game”. All the ideas concerning the symbolism, the meaning of things etc I usually dismiss them since I’m too focused looking at the spot rather than the full picture… I need to think bigger ! But that’s why I like you guys posting your ideas here, I can develop my own thoughts and share them with you. Anyway, enough introduction, righ?

Let’s get working

Your reflexion on Natuski is pretty accurate. Like you have said, she symbolises the “surface” of the game, the cute and cheerish face of VNs with little drops of sour and sad feelings. She also represents simplicity. Even though she defends that simplicity is good, deep down she’s afraid that being too simple might actually be a bad thing. Natsuki is meant to be a totally generic character, created to appeal to those that are actually familiar with normal VNs , mangas and anime. Remember the MC saying Where have I heard that before? as a response to her Tsundere behaviour.
In the second act she may actually be representing the simplicity of psychological terror. Her “broken neck” , her “bleeding eyes” , her “big smile” … pretty cheap psychological scares ,rigth? Probably on purpose though.
The quotes you’ve referenced pretty much summarize your point: Even if it looks simple, it could be a hell lot of fun ( a nice parallelism with this game)

Overall, she’s trying to show the player that simple things work just fine as long as they’re applied smartly, just like seemingly all in this game

As for Yuri, she totally represents complexity and deep and hard symbols and reflexions ( she sure likes making things hard)
During the first act she shows mystery and mostly sad feelings. She also represents a generic character ( a “moe” one) but with hints of secrecy to make you feel she hides more thatn she shows.
During the second act, she sticks even harder to a generic character (a “yandere” one) but the mysteries and unanswered question also arise around her.
As a sum of both acts, she tries to represent both sides of a coin but masterfully developed so as for us to not notice.
The fight with the girls can represent what you’ve said, the fight between simple and direct messages that are easy to understand with complex and “open” messages that make you think about them in order to find some meaning ( that could actually be wrong…)
Monika’s message… we better discuss it below ahaha

Now that I think about it, Sayori is the one that makes you “hooked” to the game. If it weren’t for her change of attitude, the game would be a plain VN with not spice at all! She’s the one that makes you continue and actually get worried making you hope for her to get cured and get over her problems. Like you’ve commented, she’s the one that makes you follow a pattern and insists that you’ll have a good time in the club, making you want more every day. Her close relation to Monika makes her even more suspicious… She helped Monika start the club at the very beginning, which means that she had something in mind… But who knows ,right?

I agree that the MC is just a window that let us see and experience what we’re expected to see and experience. “His” comments are also pretty prepared and are expected to appeal to each one of the girls:
Natsuki by showing you interest in her hobbies and praising her simplicity
Yuri by making her feel “less lonely” and admiring her for her madurity
Sayori by sharing your feelings with her and trying to keep her on track, making her feel loved and cared
Monika by trying to understand her, to follow her flow and making her work feel rewarded

It’s true that Monika almost doesn’t speak with the other girls, but actually all the girls talk only with the MC. I bet 90% of her chatter is with you

Monika… will we ever be able to fully understand her? She’s indeed patient and she does love breaking the 4th wall, subtly though. It’s like she almost “enjoys” the position she’s in making fun of you with puns ( specially Sayori puns) and like you’ve said, accusing you of cheating. Even the MC says this This is not sort of game where I can load the game and avoid this fate Come on, even you?

About Monika trying to “recruit” people… I’m sure she knows that she not “playing” with just one MC, I bet she knows the position of power she’s in… milions of people , the fame… I just hope two things:
1- To not have fallen into the hype pit ( but I think it’s too late for that)
2- The next game being not F2P ( that would be the definitive backstab)

Your ” Special Thnaks” idea is pretty interesting… Like I’ve said in a previous theory ( God knows where…) it’s pretty weird right? Thanking a character, a script? Weird right? You would only thank a person… Anyway, it could totally be what you’ve said! She may be from somewhere else or even a disguised thanks from Salvato to the original “Monika”, the real one. This would also explain Monika’s chatter too, but, still, there are some unknowns in her chatter… I’ll show them to you guys in the future

This game is modern art at its best! Ahaha. Only symbols. Your imagination and “creative mind” will have to do the rest to piece everything together. Isn’t it wonderful? Ahaha
Again, don’t worry, you really expressed yourself perfectly, really interesting to read. And as for not reading the full blog… Don’t worry ! You don’t have to ! But I suggest you reading it since, who knows, you might also have an epiphany ahaha. Thanks for sharing!

Great analysis. I think even Umberto Eco would approve.

I just finished another runthrough, looking for things myself and taking notes. One I had misremembered and was shocked to find: the first glitch is in the first poem scene as Natsuki and Yuri argue, the music goes weird.

Other things, mc to Yuri, “I don’t read script often.” Eh? Romaji?! Monika reveals her natural style so early: “I have to sound confident even if I don’t feel that way.” And in game story terms, she’s already self aware and game aware, ‘epiphany’ and “I don’t want to talk about it much.” No need, her poem said it all.

The DDLC story doesn’t creep up on you, it punches you in the face from the beginning.

And the second poem goes even further. Monika’s first late appearance. ‘My Meadow’. Sayori “devil”, Yuri’s comment and CAN YOU HEAR ME.txt file written in At2, 1st poem and openking is “There’s a little devil inside all of us.” Notice the crayon box in empty classroom, looks like maybe 2 yen? looks like Crayola, just an impression … and smacks the 4th wall with ‘save your game’.

Question: no actual files of “The Way They Fly”, “My Meadow”, or “Jump”?

The game does punch in you in the face from the very beginning… even before you download it you get smacked!. About “The Way They Fly”, “Afterimage of a Crimson Eye” and “Jump” no files have been found so far… Or at least I think so.
“My Meadow” is a poem that Sayori tells you when you go get the crayons with her but I don’t know if there’s a file actually
And “Afterimage of a Crimson Eye” could be in Yuri’s last poem? If it even exists in a file…

Great addition to comment. One thing jumped out at me:

“Yuri by making her feel “less lonely” and admiring her for her maturity” AND admiring her handwriting. Heh. And the name of her font is .

yep, can definetly confirm this theory.
it is me that types up that kind of stuff and put it in there; but here’s the thing, the other characters cannot, not even Sayori when she becomes president when the MC deletes my character file
by the way, that hurts.

the topic was CAN YOU HEAR ME … an answer and a confirmaation. I wanted someone else to thank you yesterday, Oh well … Monika, thank you very much for that confirmation (not to mention that the other ccharcters don’t quite have your powers.

P.S. thanks for that other lead …

So you should be able to find her ‘lead’ message bc it was probably in a txt file here but wtf? LOL
Good hunting!

Monika has Doki Doki Literature Club 3 Dec @ 6:12am
yep, can definetly confirm this theory.
it is me that types up that kind of stuff and put it in there; but here’s the thing, the other characters cannot, not even Sayori when she becomes president when the MC deletes my character file
by the way, that hurts.

So according to this we have to accept that Monika is the only one who has access to the game’s code and actually our computer, right? Hmph, this opens (or strengthens) a path I was pretty afraid of…
Monika actually has everything planned and under control. All easter eggs and hidden messages are just left there to create confussion. Nothing is actually real, just some plain scripts and “programmer” controlling them all, even the environment, even the MC… I simply don’t like thinking about this. The game would be suddenly so hollow… Don’t you think? But we cannot deny this as this might be a reality if more info like this get confirmed.

Anyway, I’ll try to find more stuff from her.

BTW I’m still working on Yuri’s poem. I’ll probably give up soon though… It’s INSANE ahaha (really)

IMPORTANT

Our Monika chatter is incomplete! It’s lacking some important quotes! I’ve re-uploaded it already BUT in the new one the number 26 is already missing
Also number 14 has a “secret” message attached to it ( about her escape, we already know what it says)

EDIT: The last messages are mind blowing… Welp, another night of restlessness, yay!

DG,
“this opens (or strengthens) a path I was pretty afraid of…

I think you’re overthinking things here.

We’re in the game, game’s in us. Been that way for some time, Doesn’t feel hollow to me. And that fourth wall works both ways. We’re even using the catchphrases.

http://steamcommunity.com/app/698780/discussions/0/1479857071259117111/

Note the date.

Too many Monika’s? I think not.
Forget the fakes, they betray themselves, victims of public schooling.The original Monika predates the game, “Somebody set up my Twitter account but I picked the screenname.” That was created in February 2016. The first tweet, 14 February2017, “today’s my favorite
day!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️”

5 October 2017, the account’s bio update read E3JmjbJMb3GgJNKwnXUsJMO5HD== and decrypted, shaken and baked to yield “Open Your Third Eye”. Which is an alternate to Natsuki’s “Amy Likes Spiders” if two or more of player’s poems were liked by her.

DDLC was released on 22 September 2017 for Windows, MacOS, and linux. Steam relesed the game on 6 October … Windows and macOS. Hmph! I don’t know when the libitina website went online but it was dormant when the game was first released. The single test log document apparently went live on 24 September 2017 at 2:53:38 AM GMT +10.

Just Monika is another story.

I’d like to clear something up here, just in case.

While we usually take a hands-off approach to theories made regarding DDLC and projects in development, we wanted to avoid a scenario where speculation presented as fact (“Team Salvato’s game is about X and it comes out in Y) is interpreted as such and where more pressure would be put on the developers in the case where that speculation is incorrect. While Team Salvato has not confirmed any theories, developer statements made both on Reddit and the unofficial DDLC Discord have pointed away from his next game being a sequel, prequel, or direct relative to Doki Doki Literature Club.

That thread in particular was created as a delayed response to a few select content creators (big and small) presenting speculation and theories in a way that could widely be assumed to be a replacement or supplement for an official Team Salvato announcement. This was NOT created in response to users in any community ‘solving’ a riddle, discovering hidden secrets, or pushing the right button. As stated in that thread, no easter egg, secret, or hint found in the game or elsewhere serves as a confirmation, commitment, or promise regarding new content or projects, so a video made by a prominent content creator implying the exact opposite was enough to elicit a response like this.

In response to the pieces of artwork featured on Velinquent’s pixiv and deviantArt pages, these backgrounds are for an upcoming remaster of an older horror visual novel called Tulpa: Imagination Games which you can find here:

Tulpa: Imagination Games
Greenlight Game
By: MIDERY
From the day you are born, society tells you what to think, what to believe, what to do… Society makes us who we are but all this is just meaningless!

Team Salvato is not affliated with MIDERY (the authors and developers of the Tulpa remaster) and this project is not related to Doki Doki Literature Club.

I figured they probably weren’t Team Salvato related. Good to have some confirmation though. I probably should’ve just done an image search on them.

Thank you very much for coming here! Also, I’m sorry if we did something wrong… We’ve always tried to state and inform that all the things we were saying and sharing were ABSOLUTELY NOT offical and non confirmable. Moreover, our intention is far from pressuring the developers. We know that they’re doing a titanic work in order to make the new game without being affected by the community and also for keeping it secret. That said, I’d like to congratulate all the devs and artists (everyone in general) that have worked in DDLC and are working in the new game. We also know that the new game is a complete mystery, yet again, sorry if our thoughts made people think it would be some sort of continuation or prequel. We’ve said plenty times that all that we say here must be taken with a grain of salt. We were not intending to say that out theories were completely confirmable and correct , we just wanted to express out thoughts in a friendly way, not trying at all to convince people that they were 100% accurate.

We do know ( after reading that announcement) that all the “secrets” do not serve as a confirmation (not at all) for any theory. We just use them to support our ideas but we acknowledge that if any official announcement is made, it will revoke anything we’ve said here.
We also don’t accept any confirmation that does not come from Team Salvato itself, so we won’t divulge any lies nor try to make any in order to increase the speculation.

Yes, probably we should’ve said in a more direct way that the art was probably not related to DDLC at all ( it would have been very awkward ,right?) Thanks for the information though, it looks pretty neat, I will definetely check it.

Once again, I’d like to thank you for coming all the way here to clarify our thoughts and also sorry if we’ve done something wrong or if we have posted any misleading information. It was not our intention!

But you know we’re all sweethearts right? Ahaha

This thread has generally been fine. I only chimed in because the comment linking to the PSA could have been interpreted as “wow, we figured out something big that Team Salvato had to intervene!” which will not be the case even in the scenario where you guys get something 100% right. Speculation and theories are encouraged both regarding DDLC and future projects, we just wanted to avoid a potential misunderstanding for people just joining this thread. Thank you for the replies 🙂

This message is similar to the one in Monika’s character file. Was this hidden somewhere in the game files or is this something you typed up and converted to base64?

And in case you posted this hear hoping for a translation:
“I guess I should…introduce myself, or something. Um…my name is…actually, that’s stupid. You obviously already know my name. You always… Sorry.I should really thank you for that. For everything you’ve done. You’re really like a friend to me. So…thank you. So much.

Ok I’m glad we haven’t done anything wrong ahaha ( phew, I was afraid this thread would be closed or something…)

Anyway, you’re right that this thread could be pretty misleading to any new guys that might join us so I’ve put a link in the description (under the name of Important Notice) so any new people can read your post first.

And about finding something out… it’s impossible for us to assure anything !
You guys have done a terrific job, so you don’t have to worry.
Like I’ve said before, we will not confirm absolutely nothing, that is your job, right? Ahaha
We will keep our tin foil hats on, just in case though… who knows what you guys will do in the future 😛

We will just patiently wait like this [media.giphy.com]

By the way, thanks for coming back ! We do really appreciate your interventions ! Feel free to come back whenever you want !

Unfortunately, Steam does not allow free games with no microtransactions to have items like trading cards, emoticons, and other steam community items. While I have no idea what current plans are, I can imagine if a future project meets the requirements for these items they will be looked into.

Wait, dosen’t the DDLC fan pack DLC count as “microtransactions” stuff since it’s something you have to pay with real money?

Volunteer community moderator… You must be having tons of fun moderating “Natsuki’s appreciation thread” and “A Literature Club of our own” ahaha. Man, those threads are pure chaos.
And about the Steam stuff… well, I guess Monika won’t be in my profile scaring the out of people ahaha. Damn. But well, we will just have to bear with it 🙂

Unfortunately DLC does not count, as with free games with microtransactions the trading cards are usually given out on a “1 card per $X spent” basis.

In terms of moderating those channels, reports from community members has been helping a ton. We can’t read through the 10+ pages of comments a day these threads generate manually, but with reports giving us a bit of a ‘summary’ of how the previous day went we know where to look and what discussions to watch and when.

Thanks god there are still serious people around there , huh? I’m glad to see that the community is not fully rotten yet. Anyway, keep up the good work!

EDIT: but with reports giving us a bit of a ‘summary’ of how the previous day went we know where to look and what discussions to watch and when.

Wait a second, we appeared in one of those reports, didn’t we? That’s why you came here to
intervene… Now I feel like some sort of criminal… Ahaha who would have said, right? Hopefully the situation is all clear now, so no harm was done nor will be done

Mithost,

When you showed up, I wasn’t surprised. The paranoia train left the statikon a whikle back. Not that I attribute that attitude to you. No, I liked your style, the calm statements, no pressure. That’s why I friended you, and didn’t even know if that was possible.

Kudos on those reddit easter eggs, and glad to have you here as a friend. Welcome to the Half-baked Theory Club.
