Hi, Monika here!

Welcome to the Literature Club! It's always been a dream of mine
to make something special out of the things I love. Now that you're a
club member, you can help me make that dream come true in this cute

Every day is full of chit-chat and fun activities with all of my adorable and unique club members:

Sayori, the youthful bundle of sunshine who values happiness the most;

Natsuki, the deceivingly cute girl who packs an assertive punch;

Yuri, the timid and mysterious one who finds comfort in the world of books;

...And, of course, Monika, the leader of the club! That's me!

I'm super excited for you to make friends with everyone and help
the Literature Club become a more intimate place for all my members.
But I can tell already that you're a sweetheart—will you promise to
spend the most time with me? ?

Additional Comments

Maximizing the window doesn't work as it bugs out but everything else is fine. The Windows download of the game has a script to make it run natively under Linux so if you're looking to play just use that.

HowTo / Notes

How to use Doki Doki Literature Club under WINE

Step 1:

Navigate to and download the version for windows. (I highly recommend supporting Team Salvato)

Step 2:

Unzip the folder into a good directory that you can access easily via the terminal. I usually keep it in my "Documents" folder, that way it's really easy to access.

Step 3:

Open Terminal. This can be done by using the key combination CTRL+ALT+T on some systems, or simply by going to your menu and searching "terminal".

Step 4:

Navigate to your DDLC directory. (If you used the documents folder like I recommended earlier, you can get there by typing cd ~/Documents/[DDLC-Directory] )

Step 5: 

Launch DDLC by typing into the terminal wine DDLC.exe

It's unlike any of those dating type games

I just want to comment our description of this game: "It's like one of those dating type games" – no, it's definitely not. Don't let those pastel colours fool you. In, fact, it's extremely surprising. It works flawlessly under Wine, so you'd better try it yourself. And avoid spoilers.
