It sounds like the game cannot detect your sound device.
1) Disable your audio device in sound -> playback. The reenable it after restarting your computer (right click -> show disabled devices to see it) 2) Do you have an audio driver installed? If yes, try uninstalling and reinstalling it. If you just reinstalled your OS, you may need to find an audio driver for your hardware. You can look up hardware ids online (you get this from device info in device manager) to figure out the manufacturer and model and then try your luck in finding a driver for it. If the manufacturer does not have a driver available you can also search Computer OEMs for other laptops with the same hardware and if they offer a windows 7 driver install that. Also some drivers for win8/10 will work on win 7 if the driver lets you install (I had this problem trying to find a win7 wifi driver for my laptop) 2b) If this is a new OS install you also want to look for chipset drivers as it affects audio 2c) Windows might have a built in non-generic driver for your audio device that works if you cannot find a win7 driver. You need to go device manager -> update drivers and fiddle around with the wizard until it lets you select a make/model of the device (it's not select a driver from disk or look online but it's hidden under the let windows detect flow iirc). It's pretty hidden in the wizard I don't recall off the top of my head, on linux right now so I can't walk you through it. 3) Do you have a microphone port? Is it broken (eg always on/off)? I had this before, had to do some fun hackery to turn back on audio. Google is your best bet here.
limith: idk, dev diaries, editor blogs could also work if you want to keep patreon stuff exclusive

Magpie: Sadly you my have noticed considering how vague I've been about it but the kickstarter falls outside my jurisdiction. Generally I don't touch it.

Magpie: I was thinking about doing some diaries at the end of the beta period when things become focused on polishing but it depends if there is anything interesting to talk about.

Magpie: Had two people spoil it for me sadly so I've lost interest. I'm fine with recommendations but geez have restraint people.

Magpie: Ah well still got many routes to do in chaos child to keep me entertained

Sorzo: Some of my online friends were talking about that the other day.

Sorzo: I don't know exactly what happens, but any high school dating sim with the gore tag is a red flag in my book.

Sorzo: Unless it's Yandere Sim. Then it's okay.

ChapterSerf: I just actually looked at the User tags for Doki Doki Literature Club on Steam. And yeah, I saw the Gore.

ChapterSerf: It's been a little quiet since Waifu Wars ended. I figure some mafia will liven things up again.

Prince995: Well Doki Doki Literature Club is actually pretty great... if you aren't easily disturbed that is... i just think its amazing to see all the stuff you can actually do with the Ren'py engine

MrNickUniverse: Doki Doki Literature Club is probably my favourite VN out of all the things I've read this year. There's not a lot you can really say about it without spoiling it. But Wow... What an experience.

gtauch: for anyone that has played through homeward, when you look into the CGs, were you able to get all of them? i have tried everything and cant seem to get the general CG 5 on the beach or the CG 4/9 on Haruka route in the Nonami love scene.

Rellek: I missed the part where they said "Individuals suffering from anxiety or depression may not have a safe experience playing this game". Doki Doki Literature Club ruined me for awhile.
