Finally, schools out! You’re put in the shoes of a handsome but reclusive young man. It’s been over half a year since you spoke with your childhood friend, Sayori. One day, she unexpectedly invites you to join her and your school’s valedictorian girl, Monika, at a swimming pool. This one off event turns out to be the beginning of something new and exciting with one of four girls.
Doki Doki Summertime is a modification for the popular 2017 visual novel Doki Doki Literature Club. Unlike the original game, Doki Doki Summertime is a comedic adventure where the player can get to know all the characters more in-depth. Their interactions and confessions are meant to show their human sides without the stereotypical obsession towards the main character. Contrary to many other modifications, this game steers clear of played-out clichés – occasionally even poking fun at them. The story’s progression is meant to feel like the natural process of people getting to know each other over the course of a week. There are no horror elements in this story. However, this does not mean conflict isn’t to be expected.
