There are very few indie horror titles that have managed to transcend to another level such as Doki Doki Literature Club, a game developed by Team Salvato and released in mid-2017.

The title became an internet phenomenon thanks to its deceiving cute appearance, making it look as yet another visual novel, but as players progress through the story it becomes a very unconventional experience, which catapulted it into being one of the most popular unsuspected horror games.
