Ren'Py specific questions should be posted in the Ren'Py Questions and Annoucements forum, not here.

I want to be able to create one on my own but I'm too scared to because I don't understand coding. I know there are tutorials out there but all the information is a lot to take in... >< I feel like if there's no one in person teaching me how to do this, I won't completely understand it...!
If anybody has dabbled with Ren'py or VN creators before, please let me know what your experience with those was like. Was it complicated to learn on your own? Did you have someone helping you out? Or did it all come easily to you either due to experience or dabbling with code before? Or am I just making it out to be harder than it actually is?
If there is an easier way to learn about this kind of stuff, please let me know on that as well.

Code: Select all
label start: scene black "It was night and I couldn't see anything." "Then I decided to go back to sleep." "The end."
Just build up little by little and look at the code of other games. Study the code of The Question for example.
You can do it if you want to.
*Last Thing Done (Aug 17): Finished coding emotions and camera for 4/10 main labels.
*Currently Doing: Coding of emotions and camera for the labels--On 5/10
*First Next thing to do: Code in all CG and special animation stuff
*Next Next thing to do: Set up film animation
*Other Thing to Do: Do SFX and Score (maybe think about eye blinks?) http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewto ... 51&t=21978

You can create a game in Ren'Py with no coding knowledge, then expand upon that as trooper6 suggests.
From time to time you'll stumble, but the forum, documentation and Ren'Py tutorial are always there to help you overcome any obstacles you face.
Its okay to be a beginner, everyone was at one point.
It will take time and effort, but the end result is usually worth it, even if you fail, you gain experience for your next attempt.

There are also a ton of great examples in the Cookbook if you're trying to do something fancier. (Most of it just comes down to copying and pasting their code then inserting your own dialogue or images.)
As long as you're not super determined to do something fancy like, oh, create a complex combat and inventory system, you can probably figure it out! (And even if that is your goal, people here are super helpful I've found!)

by watching tutorials and repeat them
by looking at renpy cookbook
by asking help here if you get stuck on something
by looking others peoples codes
and last one would be go to python website as well there thing on there
but be careful there web base codes that are in python so when you go there, there should be a category for games
for now work on a game that is basic and build upon it while you learn
