Doki Doki Literature Club is not upbeat cartoon pornography. To say precisely what it is would spoil the surprise, but it's most certainly not that.

To someone who doesn't intend to play the game or mind spoilers, what is the game about?

It's not that long and is free, and I'd certainly say is worth playing, but:
It's a very dark and nasty psychological horror game presented as an upbeat romantic visual novel.

From the tvtrope page of it, it seems to pull a Madoka Magica. Within its gerne.

A Hat in Time is one of those games that I started playing, thinking it might be a fun way to blow an hour. Then, six hours later, I realize I'd accomplished nothing real that day because the game was so engaging.

P.S. Thanks

Yes Yahtzee. one more week before you can review the game that everyone's already bought or made up their mid about whether or not they'll buy it.

Hob got its concepts down pat, it's just very uninteresting concepts. Hat in Time will jerk you around and its difficulty sucks ass with walk in the park everything but boss fights where they suddenly assault you rapidly or have way too much HP to be fun and challenging resulting in tedium. Generally I find Hat in Time lives on a branch off of Super Mario Sunshine rather than develop from it, it never escapes that identity and I think it'll hurt it down the line when it's "that neat game that's a lot like Sunshine".

Yeah, I think you don't grasp the concept of these videos..

Yahtzee was never one of those "watch my review before you buy it" type people.

Dear God Yahtzee , saying that Doki Doki Literature Club is cartoon pornography is like saying Spec Ops the line is just poor mans Call of Duty.

This game is really best played blind so I'll just say that if you like Spec Ops and Undertale , you will like this one too .

Spec Ops is just the angsty man's Call of Duty

Also good to know Hatty Time is fun! That's been on my radar for a bit.

He could be, though, if people weren't so eager to buy everything the very day it comes out like it's got a sell-by date. As one of those people who almost never buys any game before it's gone on sale or, in the case of console games, its platform has migrated to the secondhand market, a week or two is nothing.

I'm getting kinda bored of the Trump jokes. Even with the glory to the internet that is Yahtzee, I still have to be around it.

Whew, I was afraid I would go through the comments and not hear anyone complaining about it. But my fears were for naught. Then you should tell trump to stop being such a joke cause we still have probably 3 long years to go.

I have a new favorite recurring joke in Yahtzee's videos: the waggling tongue of someone missing most of their head, going "Gggghhhhkkklllkgghhllkklllgh!"

You're assuming he won't get bored and quit, impeached and removed from office, or assassinated. Trump's "manifesto" is "I rule, people who suck up to me at fine, everyone else sucks."

Hence why I said "probably."

Yeah but at least he wasn't wuite so predictable. His material is getting stale. It's usually more interesting to hear him rant on indies because they are at least a bit more eclectic.

His material is not getting "Stale" at all.

Or it's a masterpiece of a subversive critique on ego fluffing, commodified masculinist pop-violence in modern society regardless of medium, and a work of art/entertainment that is flat out impossible in any other medium.

One or t'other.

As for Yahtzee's indies: meh. Not even sure Cat On A Hot Tin Roof Hat is on Xbox, but nothing about it particularly appeals. XBL's spat out Gone Home, Oxenfree, and The Turing Test for 'free' this month, so one down, two to go.
