The developer warns any mobile versions currently available are unofficial.
Doki Doki Literature Club developer Team Salvato is “exploring the possibility of developing an official mobile port of DDLC.”
Writing on the Team Salvato blog, studio founder Dan Salvato said the potential mobile version of Doki Doki Literature Club “may have some differences from the desktop version,” adding he’d like to make “some updates and bug fixes” before bringing it to mobile. “In other words, I’m not comfortable with the game being ported to mobile as-is,” he wrote.
While there currently isn’t an official mobile version available, several unofficial ports are floating around digital storefronts such as the Google Play Store. In an effort to combat this, Salvato said he has “updated the Fan Content Guidelines to disallow DDLC fan games, or games using official DDLC assets, to be uploaded to public app stores.”
Salvato noted his appreciation for the “passionate fan community” that led to the unofficial ports, but added he isn’t “comfortable with DDLC being publicly available on mobile right now, especially when I want to do everything I can to give mobile players a top-quality experience.”
Doki Doki Literature Club recently passed one million downloads on PC. It’s also nominated for several of IGN’s Best of 2017 Awards, including Best PC Game and Best Story.
