A Doki Doki Literature Club port for the Nintendo 3DS! Programmed in Lua, running under the LovePotion framework.

DDLC-LOVE, a DDLC port for the Switch, PSP, and PS Vita, will be found in the ddlclove branch of this repo.

This port is unofficial and is not affiliated with Team Salvato. Please support the official game. You can download Doki Doki Literature Club at:

This is for 3DS systems, but it also works on other platforms that support LÖVE (0.10.2 and later). On those, it will still have 2 screens like the 3DS.

Locations of save files:

Platform Location
3DS sdmc:/3ds/data/LovePotion/DDLC-3DS/
Windows %appdata%\LOVE\DDLC-3DS\

You can reset the save data and start over by deleting all of the files on that folder. This is also mentioned in the help menu.

New 3DS/2DS users should disable L2 Cache before playing this. (?)

Building (LovePotion 3DS):

  • Simply run make for a 3dsx build or make cia for a cia build. LovePotion 1.0.9 .elf and tools are provided.


  • 3DSX - Download the zip from the releases, then extract the folder with the .3dsx and the game folder in the 3ds folder of your SD card. You can now run this with the homebrew launcher. (This is only tested in Rosalina homebrew launcher, it may not work in *hax)

  • CIA - Install the .cia file from the releases using any CIA installer of your choice.

  • PC - Drag the game folder to LÖVE 0.10.2 / 11.1
