Ren'Py specific questions should be posted in the Ren'Py Questions and Annoucements forum, not here.
How and which website works and what is the process? Ex. Patreon, Kickstarter.
And finally what is the process to get published? How to do it by yourself or how to get it published by some established company?
It would be of great help to any beginner wanting to make his way in the VN industry.
Thank you beforehand.

As for funding, I think many of us are probably working on these in our free time, and are effectively self-funded by other jobs. Patreon seems like a pretty difficult way to fund a game, because you’re relying on people paying an ongoing subscription for a product that isn’t available yet, and a lot of game development is pretty boring to an outsider. Most of the games I’ve seen succeed with this are adult games, because you need something to keep people’s attention (and money) as you work on the game, and porn is a good way to do that.
Kickstarter is better for a wider range of genres, and visual novels often have lower budgets than other types of game, but it will involve a lot of extra work besides actually making your game, and you only have a limited amount of time to raise your goal. You also need a very clear idea of your budget, and you’ll have to stick to it. Many Kickstarted games have failed because they ran out of money before they finished.
