It's that time of month again. This month, we have another article going into detail about how Ren'Py works - in this case, explaining what we mean by an interaction:

January 2019 Under the Hood: Interactions

While I'm at it, October's article is now free. It's the very popular article on adding Google Analytics.

October 2018 Adding Google Analytics to your Visual Novel


Feel free to discuss both articles (or any of the other ones) in this thread. Knowing what people - even people who don't back me - want to see will help me when planning out future articles.

I would agree, these posts may help to inform future visitors of the existence of the Patreon articles.

They're certainly appreciated.
