Breaking Ren’Py: How our Pseudo-OS pushes Ren’Py even further beyond!

  • Ren’Py is one of the world’s most popular visual novel engines, primarily due to its ease of access and modifiability. Highlighting this fact, Watercress and Imagibeat Studio have been working on a pseudo-OS within the engine and will be sharing a tech demo of what we have so far. This includes a mock-OS with a dynamic windows system, applications/pseudo-internet browser, media player and IRC client. The game also transitions between VN-mode and OS-mode seamlessly, with a main menu that reflects the last played mode. We hope this talk can inspire visual novel developers to push the medium even further!
