Ren'Py specific questions should be posted in the Ren'Py Questions and Annoucements forum, not here.
I was thinking about making a romance visual novel in the near future and I have a couple ideas but I'm unsure on one thing.
Would the player prefer to have multiple protagonists to choose from and one route for each (there would be 3 protagonists to choose from) or one protagonist with multiple routes (probably 3 routes)?

I could tell you what I personally prefer but it might not be the same as the next poster, and for many of us, it really all depends on the details of how you pull it off.

Yes, there is probably a majority somewhere, even if it may be by a slim margin, but honestly I don’t think it’s a good idea to fall into the trap of trying to be “unique” or “different”. Nothing is original anymore. Trust me, I fell into that trap myself and making that game that was built around what other people wanted, was just more of a chore than anything (and it showed). So yeah, I agree that you should make your game how you want to make it.

I think as the others said, make it how you want to make it. It's hard to pull off making a game (or anything) if your whole heart isn't in it... you need to just go with what feels right. It will matter little what is normally popular (or not popular) if you make an enjoyable game.
