National Online Safety Guide for Doki Doki
National Online Safety are highlighting the risks associated with Doki Doki Literature Club; a visual novel game with suicide themes and a psychological horror plot, advised by its makers as 'not suitable for children'
The game is believed to have been downloaded more than two million times in the first four months and has come under scrutiny in the UK media after a father said he felt the game had ‘dragged his son in’ and contributed to his death in Greater Manchester in early 2018. Police and the coroner investigating the 15-year-old’s death have urged parents to be vigilant and called the game a ‘risk to children and young people’.
We have been alerted to this game by our schools and have created this guide to help support them to raise awareness of the online safety risks associated with it.
