Doki Doki Ragnarok Is A VN Where A Horny Viking Dating the Villages

I just got friend zoned by London.

Friends, enemies, people in between, I’m here to tell you Doki Doki Ragnarok is a GAME ABOUT A VILLAGE eater. It’s also one of the funniest, most adorable games in a long time.

No, it’s not a typo. I don’t mean “date the bad guy”ers“. I mean village. This is a fun, deeply humorous, and utterly exceptional game, one that will make you laugh out loud.

To be fair, the term “doki doki” has been used to some extent in the West by Doki Doki Literature Club!, The wildly popular 2017 visual novel about love in a high school club. In Japan, it is much better recognized as the ideal heart rate speaker, and has been named for games that go back to the Famicon days. So it’s obviously perfect for a game about love with small towns.

Because to occupy a village you will need a crushing machine to avoid emotional spillover. And hey, some points can’t hurt. I’m sorry. You will need to listen to the needs, wants, and preferences of the village. You will need to flirt.

So there may be some immediate concerns here. Historically, Viking plunder is perhaps not famous for its consensual and respectful approach to aggression. Then there are the underlying problems of all these dating games, where the line between empathy and compulsion is always deeply blurred. In the end, no matter how it is dressed, it is about trying to be comfortable. And as it is, I’ve long struggled to discern the significant difference between the awakened world of “progressive” dating sims and the endless proliferation of misguided hentai series released. daily on Steam. However, it is wonderful to say DDR not worthy of any such concern.

It definitely helps with that DDRThe dialogue’s makes this distinction somewhat irrelevant. In an intoxicating attempt to impress the first village in the game, you can choose between roaring, slashing, roaring, or bragging about your intellectual activities. Select “roar” and read text,

You don’t know the absolute mass you can. Windows broken! Building collapse! Birds exploding mid-flight! You are enveloped in an infinite sadness because of all those birds.

But more importantly, this is incredibly silly. Villages in general get excited about being looted, and when you’re burning buildings and driving locals out of town, the two of you tend to be more chatty, rather than… you know. Then there’s the constant intimidation of goats, the rivalry with the politely named Bjorn Rivalson, and the endless barrage of insults against the British, no matter what country you’re in. Oh, and after a cutely simple date with Normandy, the town decided – even if it was having a great time – that it didn’t want things to end in a raid. And that is respected. Because this game is both bonders and lovely.

Honestly, I’m glad the game’s geolocation is horrible. Where the map shows you’re infiltrating somewhere near Perth in Scotland, the game claims you’re in the South of England — Wareham specifically — meaning it’s about 500 miles away and a sovereign country. It’s nothing compared to when you set sail from the South coast to… Londinium. But don’t worry, because the focus here is on being entertained by really excellent articles, and that’s somewhat sporadic.

As you progress, each encounter with a town becomes more complex, with the dialogue you’ve chosen needing to be based on careful listening to the thoughts and desires of the location. Extra text is often the key. They would really impressed by your race for a swift invasion of England, as they mentioned a few times their admiration for the Vikings’ fondness for grasslands? Will praising their work flatter, or patronize? Because, in the end, both sides want to see some farm on fire, and it’s important that this happens in the most respectful way possible.

A Viking gets a corgi very excited by suggesting that maybe, just maybe, he himself is the good dog.

There are a few misspellings and odd moments when the wrong word is used (“discount” instead of “recount” is a weird thing), but they matter very little among the many hilarious spellings. funny. I laughed so many times while playing this, bursting with so many wonderful jokes and puns (“robbery”), all delivered with a warmth and kindness I didn’t expect.

Add to that the music is absolutely amazing throughout, the soothing “wonders” accompanying the text, and some really lovely animation, and this is a lot of fun.

This is a risky project, with automatic assumptions someone might make about a game where dating and aggression are mixed. All that worries aside, because this is a game where consent is key, but nonsense is far more important. It’s funny how adorable this is, and it’s adorable how funny this is.
