Soundtrack for cult metafictional video game Doki Doki Literature Club gets vinyl release

Hope you’re sitting down… cuz yeah: the soundtrack to cult metafictional game Doki Doki Literature Club is getting a vinyl release on its one-year anniversary. Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on whether this record will fall in love with you and, like, destroy all your Byrds records to be closer to you; but it DOES come on crimson smoke vinyl.

Dan Salvato, who created the game, also composed its soundtrack, which plays with the conventions of dating simulation game music, mixing the upbeat with moments uncanny sadness. The record comes with cover art by OMOCAT, and its design incorporates a die-cut sleeve (á la Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti), allowing one to view variable art from the inner sleeve through the laptop screen on the outer sleeve.

It’s not entirely clear when exactly the record will be released, only that it ships in the first quarter of 2019. But you can pre-order it now here. Anyone else want breakfast?
