Description

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 based on on pygame, and uses Python to allow visual novels to contain reasonably complex logic.

Ren'Py is open-source software, and is free to use for commercial and non-commercial purposes. Ren'Py is supported on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, and can be made to run on other platforms.

Changes

Ren'Py 6.0 is a major release of the Ren'Py visual novel engine. It includes many ease of use improvements, and now ships with several developer tools.

I've just discovered Ren'Py and I must say I'm very impressed.

I launched the demo project which shows what RenPy is capable of and been on the website:

- very neat soft (lots of work behind obviously)
- great documentation
- lively community (forum)
- possibility to include pygame minigames inside the visual novel
- possibility to include Python custom code inside the RenPy scripts
- good distribution tool (tested on Windows XP in my case)

On the forum someone did a remake of a part of the Nintendo DS game "Phoenix Wright" * to see if he could easily have all the effects of the original ... and I must admit it works ! :)

Congratulations to the people behind this soft. I will have to find time now to do a visual novel with this tool :)
