Ren’Py rocks!

Ren'Py rocks.

The author of Ren’Py (the best visual novel engine and the tool I recommend most enthusiastically for this weekend’s miniLD #27) has expressed support for Ludum Dare!  He is frantically working on bugfixes for a fresh new version of Ren’Py for you all to enjoy this weekend.

Be sure to check it out: this is a master work and a labour of love that has been constantly updated for over two years. http://www.renpy.org/why.html

I warmly encourage everyone to follow him on twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/renpytom

    Yeah, renpy really rocks!

    But last time I tried using it for a minild I ended up with one simple character drawn and that was on the Tuesday following the compo v___v

  2. Ren’Py was used by this LD20 masterpiece:

    The best way to start is to begin by reading:

    And begin by modifying the example game:

    Don’t worry – you can do it! And remember, you can use any game engine you like! I’m personally not going to use it – I’m going to do everything in plain old fashioned HTML.
