Ren'Py Visual Novel Engine - 6.17.3.327

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 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

As we reach the tenth anniversary of the start of Ren'Py development, I'm pleased to announce Ren'Py 6.17 "In This Decade...". Major improvements in this release include:

  • A rewrite of the Style system that should improve Ren'Py's performance.
  • A new style statement that makes it easier to define styles.
  • A rewritten shift+I style inspector lets you view those styles.
  • A new "show layer" statement that makes it convenient to apply transforms and ATL transforms to entire layers at once.
  • A new "window auto" statement that enables automatic management of the dialogue window.
  • Several other syntax improvements.
  • French and Russian translations.
  • The integration of RAPT (the Ren'Py Android Packaging Tool) with the Ren'Py SDK. Ren'Py now downloads RAPT using the Ren'Py updater - it's no longer necessary to download RAPT separately.
This release also includes several other new functions and actions, and major bugfixes that affect the Android platform.

6.17.3.327: March 4, 2014

This release fixes a bug where Ren'Py would misparse properties and attributes that began with a Python operator. (For example, insensitive, which begins with in.) It also rewrites the missing image code to use styles and screens.
