The game is really, really good though! :) I like the characters especially! I mean, I haven't seen much of the game yet since It's unfinished, so I can't really tell if It's going to be like Doki Doki Literature Club when It's finished.
Hey! I think a comment you left went onto a different post -- I understand that it's got overlaps with DDLC, and I was inspired to pursue my own story with mechanics inspired by that game. I'm unsure if that's why you gave the game one star as a rating..? I'm sorry if you feel that it deserves a low rating because of that similarity.
I've coded the majority of the game myself, I've edited the art assets myself (and am waiting for the official artist to make their art for it!) -- but they're not meant to be 100% the same. There's more story for me to show, as this is still early days. But in any case, I hope you'll give it a chance to develop! I don't think sharing some similarities means it shouldn't be allowed to exist. By the same token, if you really hate it or don't enjoy it, that's your choice!
In any case, thank you for your feedback!
Thanks for being nice about it! :) I do really like the game, and everything apart from the glitching parts and character files are very different from DDLC. Sorry I gave it a 1 star rating, I've just had the ideas in my games (not on here, on another coding website) used without giving credit and it really hurt my feelings. I kind of let my feelings toward stuff like that change my rating, so I'm sorry :( I think maybe you should give credit to DDLC for inspiration somewhere in the game, like in the credits, or on the game page. I'll give it a higher rating, because it does deserve it, I was just a bit upset when I rated it that.
When I played the game I went in Kana's route and I kind of regretted it afterwards because of how over confident she was being :p Also, Haruka is hilarious... And I loved the texting thing, especially when Haruka spoke with her terrible grammar :3
I've stated several times it was an inspiration, and I'm going to include that officially in the art book PDF. It's never been a secret or something I've tried to deny! I'm sorry Kana is a princess at times but you'll get to know her more thru the game! I'm glad you enjoyed Haruka's ummm... special brand of spelling and grammar. :P Thanks again!
Ok, I think you should make the inspiration behind it more clear, because I can't find any mentions of DDLC. And you should probably also put it on the game page. Idk... it just seems a lot like DDLC in some ways. I didn't like it especially when people thought you came up with the idea of looking in the game files, and the creepy glitched out parts.
On the other hand, the mystery person (btw I went in the files and saw the bowl of something (I forgot what it was) with a face in it which was hilarious XD) is a different approach in things from DDLC. It's the way you did the glitching and the game files that make me notice the similarities.
I've mentioned it on Twitter, on Discord and on my YouTube regarding the game. I've also mentioned it in comments previously to others, so it's never been a hidden aspect. I understand that you find the lack of mention disheartening, it was never malicious. The link (I thought) was apparent, even without me confirming it. I was hesitant to add the mention of 'Doki Doki Literature Club' into the game itself, as that isn't my game and it's not my property to be mentioning.
