  • any tools the automatically convert text into renpy usable script
    3 projects | /r/RenPy | 7 Jul 2023
    I use twine to visually structure branching narratives. you can easily convert the twine code into renpy script using ludowoods twine to renpy tool. other than that, I tried using chatgptto convert a screenplay that I wrote into a renpy script. just use the prompt: rewrite the following using the format used by renpy visual novel engine. it doesn't work all the time though, so be prepared if it forgets using double quotes etc.
  • Workflow?

    I'm using Obsidian to jot down ideas, notes, etc to outline and flesh out storylets. Once I've finished writing down those, I use Twine to create the decision trees and to quickly prototype how the story flows. This also makes it graphically easy to oversee how the story flows and make changes if I want to add new routes, rebalance the difficulty of getting flags or just insert easter eggs. I just copy paste into Twine, the scenes I made in Obsidian. Once I'm done with that, I use ludowood's twine to renpy tool to generate the renpy code. This generates the "scaffolding" that I'll be using for my renpy project.

    Collaborative platforms like World Anvil allow writers and contributors to collaborate to build shared universes. These platforms allow for crowd-sourced contributions, where writers, artists, and fans collaborate to develop detailed mythologies, create expansive maps, and flesh out the intricate histories of their fictional worlds. Open source storytelling tools like Twine provide accessible platforms for interactive storytelling, enabling anyone to contribute to the narrative tapestry. Through open source world-building, science fiction has become a collective endeavor, resulting in richer and more immersive fictional universes.
  • Game developer?
    2 projects | /r/GameDeveloper | 30 May 2023 a node based game engine that creates an html file for your game, so it runs in browser when you're done. Fantastic, powerful little engine. I've made anything from text based games to visual novels with it.

    Personally, I'd suggest twine. It's free, super-easy to get started in, and has a nice visual flowchart editor for the story structure. It also supports as much branching and conditional logic as you want to throw at it, exports to HTML files, and you don't even have to install it - you can just go right over to and start playing around with the editor in your web browser.
  • Are there any tools for designing the story of a dating sim?

    You could prototype it in twine. Some interconnected boxes might be all that you need.
  • Software for creating a custom hypertext / hypermedia hexcrawl
    2 projects | /r/osr | 12 May 2023
    Twine and Inklewriter have served me well for journaling pointcrawl style solo play, but I really miss the ability to move around a map at a glance. Ideally I want to be able to have either a hexmap or a good abstraction of one that allows for hyperlinked keys with additional information. I can implement this on an interactive fiction software using loops for additional information, but this seems like it will get unwieldy fast, esp. as I start putting my dungeons online. At one point I was making an improvised hexmap using the canvas view in Obsidian, but it got super annoying trying to link the hexes together. Also, as I have a Midjourney subscription, I want to be able to key a hexmap with more than just text.

    Twine is a great tool for text-based adventures.

    This game was made originally with Tweego for the Twine interactive fiction engine (which is where you should start).
