The Raven [poetry][NVL] - seeking input

#1 Post by Imperf3kt » Sat Jul 01, 2017 7:45 am

Poetry in Ren'Py?!

What be this madness?


Basically I made this / am making this as a template for poetry and other similar uses where there won't be any images at all in a game.

For now, I have other projects that are taking priority, but I wanted to get some opinions and feedback on whether anybody thinks this is useful, or just silly.

So did you ever get "The Raven" done to your satisfaction? I'm extremely interested in non-traditional uses of Ren'Py.

cheers

I'm working on the GUI for it.
The poem itself, is essentially fully scripted except a few minor grammar fixes required and additional {w} tags to do. That part was mostly automated by my text editor :^)

I intend to voice it, so people can sit back and just hit auto if they want.
