Create your own Visual Novel in Ren'Py

Sourav Singh (~sourav)


Ren'Py is one of the most versatile and easy-to-use frameworks, written in Python, for the development of Visual Novels and smaller Role-playing games. The talk will explore the details about creating your own development environment for development of visual novels, writing a script and developing GUI, porting your game to Android and iOS and how you can get help for issues in development process.

The talk will also explore some of the games which have been developed in Ren'Py like Katawa Shoujo, Doki Doki Literature Club, Imre's Curse: The Prologue etc.

The talk will be an interactive one and have a very light and humorous note.


No prerequisites required. An open mind and intro-level familiarity with Python is all what is needed to attend the talk.
