At the end of the year, it's not uncommon to hear about random games that might have passed under your radar before -- and this year, that game seems to be Doki Doki Literature Club for me. I've been hearing its name tossed around on random "year end" lists, and seeing it crop up on Twitter here and there as well... and then to top it all off, it just took home 4 separate awards in IGN's People's Choice Awards.
According to the game's developer, Dan Salvato, Doki Doki Literature Club was just voted by IGN readers as Best PC Game, Best Adventure Game, Best Story, and Most Innovative. Which is pretty dang impressive. My cursory knowledge of the game is just that it's a Visual Novel slash dating simulator slash psychological horror game -- a prospect that is super intriguing and terrifying.
But either way, I think I have a new game to play over the holidays. Anybody else jumped into Doki Doki Literature Club?
