Easy to use (in the same vain as RPG Maker) VN Engine?

Post by Naruzeldamaster » Tue Jul 11, 2017 1:10 am

So, I'm waiting (very patiently) for Visual Novel Maker by degika to create my VN.
I have tried Tyranobuilder: it had 'promise' but the functionality fizzled out thanks to poor documentation and a not very active steam community.
I am considering going all in on RPG maker, but then it would not play like a proper VN. Plus I have another project that would be far more suited to the RPG genre, as it is a deconstruction of JRPG/WRPG as a whole.
I cannot learn to code, what little coding is required to do the simplest tasks in RPG maker and the like are almost my limit.
I need some Visual Novel engines, some alternatives to fall back on.

I've never tried to develop a VN, but I used Novelty just for fun. Basic things are easy to do, I don't know about more "technical" features. I think it doesn't require a lot of coding and, if I remember well, it comes with a sprite editor too (which is good, I guess ahah).

Try harder or hire a coder.

Ren'Py. KS uses it and so do a billion projects made by other amateurs with no clue.

If you want something more visual, there is the Visual Novel template for Unreal Engine. It is not free, and not worth the $50 it normally is priced at. But it goes on sale regularly for a far lower price. It is easy to expand, and can do things RenPy simply cannot.
