These are great resources! I've found this useful when planning my marketing and thought you all might like it too. http://www.indiegamegirl.com/no-budget-marketing/

Build the basics first, then add all the fun bits.

Please check out my games on my itch.io page!

I found this video to be really educational so I added it to the main list:

Thought I'd add something else useful to this list, too. This is a playlist of all the available Ren'Py tutorials that I could find on Youtube. It helped me teach myself how to code, so I thought I'd share my findings with everyone else.

Can we add Accessible Design to this as well? I know it's a little harder to find information on visual novel specific guidelines, but there is some information that can be related such as WAI's Guidlines for web and mobile: https://www.w3.org/WAI/standards-guidel ... new-in-21/

@wyverngem - thank you for the suggestion! I've been keen to spread awareness and knowledge about accessibility. I'll add that link and some other resources.

For those new to programming and python these tutorials helped me a lot. It's best to do the free one first as it explains things the best even if it is more limited in scope.
It made it easier to understand what and why I'm doing things in Ren'Py and is really helpful if you plan on implementing minigames in Ren'Py or want to do more advanced things like using classes.
