Ren'Py Visual Novel Engine...some nice game making freeware
« on: March 21, 2008, 06:02:43 pm »
Hmm...seems my old post was lost...
   
 Ren'Py is an engine that supports the creation of visual novels and dating sims, forms of computer-mediated storytelling. It supports a movie script-like syntax that makes creating simple games easy, while still being customizable and extensible by advanced creators. With no additional work by the game-maker, it supports features expected of all visual novels, like loading, saving, preferences, and rollback. Ren'Py is supported on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux x86, and can be made to run on other platforms.

Ren'Py is open-source software, and is free to use for commercial and non-commercial purposes. It does not require you to open-source your game.

Ren'Py is nice free tool, I'm starting to learn it now. 8)
A new Update just came out Ren'Py 6.6.1 "T-Minus", a must have. ;)
A lot of free games made with it are available for download on the site too.

Thank you Neofur!!
I was so sad when this thread was lost because I hadn't bookmarked the link. I made a post a while ago asking if anyone had it. But anyway.
I've always wanted to make my own visual novel or dating sim since I first heard about them. I'll have to put it off for a while, since it would be a huge project, but one day! Until then, I'm excited to play the free ones.
Do you have any screenshots/storylines to share from what you're working on?

I have never had a deep interest in revenge. Revenge is the concern of those who are at some point or other beaten.
