Making a Portrait Android Quiz Game with Ren'Py

#1 Post by NaeemBolchhi » Thu Aug 29, 2019 1:46 pm

I'll be using this thread to mark my progress as I work on this. So, you'll see more content being added as I work on it. For now, I've done some coding to randomly choose 10 questions to ask the player from a finite number of questions (can be at least as many being asked, to as many I can type). But a landscape quiz game doesn't look too nice, neither fun to play. So, I'm dropping the main game for now and working on the UI. Wish me luck!

0.01: Made a quiz game that asks ten random questions from a question bank and tells you how many you did right or wrong. (Screenshot)
0.02: Opened a new project to create a Portrait (1080, 1920) GUI for the game. Working on Dialogue screen first. (Screenshot)
0.03: Added a screen resize settings in preferences (18:9 or 16:9). Made improvements with main menu and game menu.

In case it is of any use to you, there are two portrait mode GUIs already developed / in development that you could use if you prefer.
viewtopic.php?f=52&t=56021
viewtopic.php?f=52&t=56157

The first one is created in 720x1280 but can easily be changed to 1080x1920 with some simple math: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=53791 and changing the images used.
Warning: May contain trace amounts of gratuitous plot.

It's great, but it is catered to the visual novel style. I don't have the graphics skill to make visual novels on my own. But I like Ren'Py so I'm trying to see what else I can do with it. I suppose I can grab ideas from them at least. Thank you.
