“And thus, today marks the day I sold my soul for a cupcake.”
The moment I read this line early on inDoki Doki Literature Club Plus!, I was hooked. Not only did I find the line itself amusing in its absurdity, but it reminded me of a poignant scene in one of my favorite TV shows. Specifically, it was the scene in an episode of The Magicians where Penny reluctantly joins a book club and eats a cupcake. Although Doki Doki Literature Club Plus! ensnared me from that early line to the culmination of multiple playthroughs, I almost don’t want to review it.
