Fun fact: the Japanese words for cute and scary sound quite similar. This is especially appropriate when considering the phenomenon that is Doki Doki Literature Club, a bleak, horrifying psychological thriller disguised as a schmaltzy dating sim. With a slew of terrible fates awaiting these loveable young girls, you can’t help but feel as though disaster is lurking around every turn. Fortunately, the modding community has taken on the task of adding their own touches here and there, to help alleviate the crushing pressure. Or in some cases, make it much worse. It can go either way, really. To help separate the wheat from the chaff, we’ve compiled a list of the best Doki Doki Literature Club mods you can’t play without.
NOTE: Spoilers ahead. And probably some rather depressing concepts, too. Best to read this after you have experienced the main game, and preferably not on your birthday.
NOTE 2: Though this list originally only featured six mods, it has gotten such an overwhelming response from the Doki Doki community that we have boosted it to a more robust total of ten! Celebrate with your favorite image of Sayori! …No, not that one, you sick puppy.
NOTE 3: We’re at it again – this list now features fifteen different mods to feel upset about! Yay!!
