Doki Doki Literature Club is a free-to-play psychological horror computer game that initially looks like a dating simulation about a high school boy pursuing different attractive girls. Despite starting out as an innocent and light-hearted dating simulation, the game quickly puts the player into deeply upsetting situations that can make them highly uncomfortable and constantly on edge.

At some point in the simulation a character takes their own life and the player is unable to do anything to prevent it. This content has been described as distressing, producing a warning before the game starts: “the game is not suitable for children or those who are easily disturbed”.

Doki Doki Literature club can be downloaded onto a computer with either macOS or Windows.
