Time for a new project! This time it will be a simple visual editor, or GUI, for Ren’Py, the visual novel game engine.
Game creation with Ren’Py is based on writing scripts with special Ren’Py syntax, and the possibilities are almost endless. But writing scripts is difficult for some people, so clicking menus and buttons in a graphical editor feels a lot easier. That’s the idea behind Revised: to offer a simple assistant to create simple games, or the skeleton of the game.
Revised generates .rpy files that Ren’Py will use, and those files can still be enhanced with a regular text editor, of course.
For now, there is basic project generation, image manager and character manager. There are no releases yet, but you can get the current code from Gitorious, here:
As usual, it’s based on Qt and targeted mainly at GNU/linux systems.
