Good news, I am almost done building my PCs case, I managed to get everything I need, so that means that I'll be able to continue by this or next weekend, if RL doesn't decide to kick my ass once more.

As the voting decided, I will not change anything about this format.

Thank you all for staying with me through all of this, having an audience that actually cares, even if it only contains 13 people is really great, really. :)

I'll let you know once there is more progress.

Btw, for any nerds here, I figured put that my CPU might even be old enough, to not be affected by Meltdown/Spectre :|

Posted in My experience.

Hey guys, quick update here - some progress on my computer is done, however I'm slowly giving up hope to finish it soon.

While this may not look like much, it took me >2hrs to do after I finished the planning and still I'm only 70% done with the case's base, then I'll still have to connect the components and set up the OS (most likely floppy disk + netinst) which is a total of 55% and lets me estimate to take further 2-3 hrs of pure work time.

I wouldn't usually mind, but I already kept you waiting for 1.2 months so I think I'll rather borrow a laptop and finish the thing.

The voting seems to have reached it's klimax, but it's not closed yet. Most of you wanted me to stick with my old schema than to make a video or mix both formats.

I will still do a video and post it later on, in case it's good enough, but I will concentrate on the old format first, and only when it's all finished, I'm gonna look if I can make something decent out of it, but it's not gonna interfere with this series of posts in any way.

Thanks for being patient and vote for something in the poll (link in the last post), please. I'll keep you informed :-)

Posted in My experience.

Ok guys, the voting is over, thanks for the 9 ppl who participated but I am still unable to relase any significant content.

I'm kind of torn now, but that's my mistake because I forgot to mention that voting for JUST DO IT is basically voting for the video.

However, I came up with a much better idea anyway. I could just record the video, take snapshots out of it and post them here the way I did before while making the video leaving the ones who want to keep it the way it was meant to be.

If I'll do it this way, I'll split the video to a small series and release every ones content as a post about a day a uploading the actual video to avoid "spoilers" for the ones who want to see the recording of it.

So now, I promise it'll be the last time you have to make a decision, I made a last, way better formulated poll for you.


Just the way it should have happened, i did not manage to set up a computer yet and I can't do anything about it. I'm really sorry that I have to keep you guys waiting and thanks for not giving me up, I appreciate your patience.

I will inform you as soon as any progress is done.

manubibi, Undertale is not relevant to DDLC at all.

For all of you, to clarify:
I would like to combine this playthrough to another hobby of mine - making videos.

However, your opinion is important to me, so that's why I give you the choice of how this topic will be continued.

The video I posted is just an example of how good I am at making videos so you have a more objective view of whether you like my video editing or my posting skills more.

The video's content is not important for us, it just happened to be 90% Undertale since that's what I've been doing with my channel the last year.

So to make this easier for all of us, I've created a poll where you can vote on how I should continue this playthrough:


I hope you are less confused now.

Posted in My experience.

Anyone? C'mon guys, I don't want to decide it for you. Does it really require that much to say whether you like the idea? Or are you just unsure?

Posted in My experience.

In case you got scared by my spoiler warning, it's not that bad, and I'm saying this while caring about that kind of stuff.

The only actual spoiler is the intro dialogue of the final boss at the "bad" route and all it's saying is what a horrible person I am. Everything else is me being amazing while dodging all the projectiles.

Posted in My experience.

Beware of Unertale spoilers, here's the video I was talikng about, it's a montage of my 2017 bullet hell (my favorite genre) achievenents. The good stuff begins only at the second half, don't judge me! I was ill and this was done in 4 hours.

(Summary for this long post is at the end)

Guys, I'm so sorry about letting you wait for so long (btw, holy moly, 750+ views already, I've expected like 150 when I would be finished).

Let me explain what happened, it's pretty complicated but I think I'll manage to explain exactly what happened: My PC died.

Fortunately, I've managed to get some old hardware from like, the 12th century or something. If you like specs: 1.1GHz 32bit CPU, 1GB RAM and only an external gfxcard with 128MB and support for OpenGL 2.0 and DirectX 8.1.

My coming PC.

The wood underneath is gonna be two walls, the top and the bottom of the case I'm building.

In other words, my PC will be what a usual smartphone would be 5 years ago.

However, that's not gonna be a big problem since I'm running Linux as my OS which is way more efficient when it comes to the usage of ressources.

Also I have a recent backup which should have the save data from my playthrough.

So, if everything goes well, I'll be able to continue the next weekend. (I don't promise anything however)


So, because my PC died I couldn't continue the last two weeks but soon I'll build another one that should do the job and I should be able to play on, the next weekend (Maybe even tuesday, but you definitely shouldn't count on it).

Also I'm very sorry for not telling you.

[Important question]

Since this topic seems to be that popular, I think it would be a good Idea to make video of my live reactions, but this would take longer. It could be as well a day longer as two weeks so that's why I'm asking you now, do you want me to make a video out of it?

I'll post a link to one of my videos so you may have a more objective view of whether or not you would like/want these editing skills to be applied to what I'm posting here.

I again apologize for not letting you know and hope you will tell me what you're thinking about my question or in general.


Posted in My experience.

That's the attitude!

I'm a brand now, nice.

Aaaah, I'm honestly REALLY stuck here now. I can see it coming, whoever I choose, the other one is probably going to turn my life to hell. Though I love the symbolism how the option to choose Yuri closes Sayori's eyes, it makes i really dark.

Don't expect anything from me today anymore.

Posted in My experience.

Oh wait there is something.

Okay that's just cheap. Though I remember that it took about 20 minutes to make a non-gamer friend of mine realize that you can undo things by closing the game (It was Undertale, after doing something that's easily done accidentally but is most likely not wanted.) and then reloading it so I won't judge it.

Her writing is hell. Just like mine!^^

Natsuki, if you'd only know... Ahem, I mean I have no idea what you may refer to... cough .

Seriously though, the eyes.




OH NO, I have no clue why a button that happens to be on the height of her chest is the hardest one to close! Get it? The...


That's a great logic you have there.

*(speaks ironically) THANK YOU! After all the BIG ;-) effort I've put into it.

Yup, that's exactly what I was saying.

xXshadowmaniaXx You wrote the same thing 4 times in a row but I still appreciate that you, mcherndon and maybe others as well are enjoying this. My internet access was gone for a while so here's what I've saved up for yesterday and today:

The physics of the eyes are still frightening to me but I suppose it's just me who is not used to this style.

Now the text is gone again.

I have no words for this. By now I decided to only watch accessed files and the "saves" folder because the terminal isn't saying anything and since the folder is empty I suppose it's meant to be found afterwards. Also the story is already really nice, I'd like it even without the creepy stuff that's about to come up.

Also I have no idea where the turning point could be, I was assuming it's gonna be like opening the game a certain amount of times but doesn't seem to be the case.

BTW, I already know each character's name which means a lot considering that I'm really bad at memorizing names.


These jumping characters are the funniest thing yet.

Posted in My experience.

Is it trying to tell me something?

Posted in My experience.

Despite the fact that I'm not into Manga or Anime it's not hard at all to immerse with the protagonist... which makes me kind of sad.

Posted in My experience.

AH! So that's why you had to clean all of the tables, I see.

Posted in My experience.

I'm not sure what to think of this, like what the heck is this position?

Posted in My experience.

Oh, goddamnit, I was about to quit for game not respecting humans but it was merely a placeholder. I feel so dumb.

I must admit that's a very creative name for the first person I meet.

This still feels strange to me, like she's talking to her invisible friends. I have to get used to this genre, I guess.

1st 4th wall break, seriously, how does this game know me that good already?

Posted in My experience.

I dunno what to say, things like these make everything fine again.

Posted in My experience.

So many details, it feels really realistic that there are blank papers hanging around my classroom^^.

Posted in My experience.

That's so adorable! Just the look of it.

Posted in My experience.

P.S. Just noticed you can't zoom the image so what you see is basically the folders "game" and "saves", the task manager, a view of files used by DDLC and the terminal launching it. I'm already scared of the xTimes.

Created a new topic My experience.

When you don't know what a game is about but you've been told it's gonna break the 4th wall and wanna be prepared.Maybe I'm overreacting?

I have prepared myself.

After everything positive being said about this game I'm really looking forward to what it's gonna throw at me and this time, unlike when I played Undertale, I somehow managed to get here almost spoiler-free

Like almost the only thing I know about it is that it's a horror game but that's not much of a secret, I guess. I'm gonna keep this active and post things whenever I feel like making any significant progress since some people probably want to follow some fresh meat like me. If it's not the case it'll be my personal history then.

What I know so far: almost nothing. Sayori is apparently an old friend of mine. I don't know my gender.
What I am expecting: I'm trying to stay unbiased and don't have much experience of this kind of gameplay anyway so with my knowledge of how games are being responded to I expect something like Undertale.

Very nice game, the only thing that's missing is a bg music that the bg color is syncronised to.

Where can I report bugs? I don't use Tumblr/Twitter for privacy reasons but I don't like the idea of putting it here in the comments so anyone can see it even if it's already fixed.

What do the "Expo" Builds do?


Welp, I didn't have a chance then, did I?

Oh, wait, my fault. I've seen one of your videos where you record the whole screen and thought you were using Gnome on LInux, the top bar on your mac looks almost same. Nvm.

Thanks and good to know. *(thumbs up)

(Unrelated to this topic, what is that theme that you use for your top bar? Looks really cool!)

(Edited 1 time)

Ok, imho this is the best update so far.

As I promised.

First, that one pattern for attack 2+3 was really cool. Also I like the quantitative ballance between moving and stationary bosses.

Second, What the heck is the pattern at the end of the video, I mean, what actually happens there?

Minute, WHY(and HOW)?

Y R U making a break (if you don't mind me questioning)?

Very good work you did there.

Hi! I seem to have the record in "Lost in Space" for now, I've skipped trough your playlist and nobody had the record above 0.5 light years. I have 0.586, watch if you don't believe me. If you do, watch anyway ;-P.

This game is clearly one of my favorites now. It's just the way I like it - minimalistic style, great music, etc.

However there are two things I'm not as confortable with. First, the sudden change of gameplay - once you're at ~0.35+ you're forced to change your style of playing from dodging to considering whether and where you shoot or tank damage thoughtfully.

Second, I have real doubts that it is possible for a human being to beat 1 light year without really lucky RNG, here's why:

The time a human brain requires to convert the eye's signal to the actual image is 0.100 s. I've seen this confirmed in multiple sources, e.g. in the NatGeo's show "Brain Games". Audio signals are processed without a noticeable delay. You may try it yourself - just make a 30 fps video project, and cut some stuff exactly to the beat, watch the result and then move the audio 0.1s into the past. Watch the second result and you'll surely notice the difference.

The average react speed (Seeing a visual impulse, usually a color change, and clicking as fast as you can) is stated (different sources state differently) around 0.225s and that's just one simple reaction you're waiting to do. I can easily imagine that it takes about 0.3s to 0.4s to partially/fully analyze the patterns coming in "Lost in Space" and react to them.

That's the only part of gameplay I don't like in this game (as well as in any other game ever) because the difficulty is increased not by making the technical challenge harder but just making it go faster instead. Ok, well, your game does both which is making things even worse.

What I'm saying is, that I spent hours to get a better high score and there have been plenty of moments when I was doing good,almost beating my high score, 80%-100% energy and then a bunch of asteroids came at a speed I never could realize fast enough and it just insta-killed me.

This sort of things tend to frustrate players making them go to the game's page and writing terrabytes of plain text data complaining about this one tiny detail nobody actually cares about.


I am not saying that the speed should be constant, it's good if it changes after the beginning, I just don't like impossible speeds that much.

I hope you may reconsider your game's machanics based on this comment and that It didn't bother you too much reading this whole thing that's almost as long as this game.

I didn't notice any big changes while making it trough the intro+ first level.

The new sounds are nice, but the changed ones seem a bit too muffled for me.

The intro's boss jumped into the start position* at the beginning and the time I shoot it.

I'm going to make the final boss the next few days as usual.

I DID IT! I'm actually not sure if that would be technically possible if there wouldn't be the shield.

I'm thinking of only adding movement after the first few levels - so after the player has mastered the dodging, they can attempt to handle movement and attack. Not all bosses will move though, and bosses that move will have a easier pattern depending on how difficult the movement is.

I'm fine with that!

Player naming would be a lower priority compared to game mechanics though.

Of course :-) Thats rather a thing for the final stages.

This is a known bug - if I recall correctly, it's not deleted, but you have to restart the game for the menu to appear. I'm looking into fixing it now.

Oh that's a bug? I thought it was intended like in the pre-alpha where the game just stayed black after the ending. Or was that a bug as well? Anyway I was lucky enough to not start a new game because I was disappointed and that way I could redo it (later). I've already uploaded a no-hit.

Be prepared for 0.3 arms then, they are harder and less restrained (but not impossible like those 0.1 ones)! They are still quite experimental at this stage though.

Sounds great! However could you please make the bosses move to where the 0.1  bosses were staying for the first attack rather then letting the player do multitasking while figuring out the patterns and the movement behavior?

One side will probably used as a score/completion indicator, while the other side is for flair/decoration.

Maybe also put the payers name there?

Okay, I've beaten the last version, it took me around 10-20 minutes without the tutorial which is extremely good, compared to the fact that I wasted 1-2 hours for all of my sessions trying to do things which are technically possible :-) This build is actually almost too easy, I even managed to beat the last level at my first attempt (thank you, shield;-)

Anyway, the biggest issue is that it's auto-deletes the game. I mean it's bad for me, since I wasn't expecting this and now I have to redo the whole thing to get a recording. At least it won't take me too long.

It's also funny that every attack that makes use of arms... (may we call them EXP for "EXternal sPawners"? JK, but we should eventually think of some cool names or acronyms for the game's elements) so what I wanted to say is that any attack which uses those, generated patterns which have been easier to dodge than any attack which didn't. It also messes with my head a little when I'm required to dodge something that comes from underneath me.

It would be great to have some kind of an indicator so you can see how long each of the two phases will durate so for the sake of estimating the risk of getting closer while it's not shooting. My suggestion here is to use the same visual element that's used for the shield, maybe just in the boss' or any other color than white to avoid confusion.

Another not build-specific thing you most likely already know but I'd like to put here anyway is that the left and right sides are not really used. I'd like to see some stats there, or at least the layout of the level selection as a ~70% faded background.

That's it for now! :-)

BTW, what actually happens when you press [SHIFT] in the overview?
