Narrative-focused video games development with Ren'Py, an open source engine

by Susan Chang

Quite Different

The game engine, Ren'Py, is an open source engine used to make countless interactive fiction games, also known as visual novels. I learned to program in Python using this engine and have released a commercial game with it. The talk will dig into the source code of the engine, and explore topics such as classes for user-defined animations, live demo of customizing the game engine, plus more cool stuff.
