Doki Doki Literature Club! is a visual novel with elements of a dating sim and psychological horror.

The player is invited to become a member of his school's Literature Club, which consists of four girls: the cheerful and energetic Sayori, the shy and reclusive Yuri, the boastful and testy Natsuki, and Monika, the level-headed president of the club. The player character is invited to write poems to present to the other members. After every in-game day, a minigame takes place where the player chooses words to include in his poem. Different words appeal to different girls in the club, and by choosing them carefully the player can deepen the relationship with one of the girls.

The game initially appears as a typical dating sim, with a cute, upbeat aesthetic. However, the mood of the game becomes significantly darker and disturbing over time.
