This is the right place for Ren'Py help. Please ask one question per thread, use a descriptive subject like 'NotFound error in option.rpy' , and include all the relevant information - especially any relevant code and traceback messages. Use the code tag to format scripts.
I want to make a "game" with the Ren'py engine, and I could use a little guidance. I watched Eileen's demo, and looked through the script, so I think I've got a bit of a grasp on how to make the characters say all sorts of things.
What I want to do is design a game based on exploration, rather like the way Myst works, leaving characters and dialogue for later. I would want it to use a "node" system, where the player would be able to look east, west, north, and south and move to neighboring nodes. Using the mouse like Myst does isn't necessary to the gameplay, arrow keys or screen options would be ok, but it would be cool if it could be done.
My question is, are there any demo games like this that have already figured out the basic coding structure, that I could use as a guide? If not, how would you do it? I could probably figure it out myself if I put enough time into it, but if someone who's better at it has already done so, I'd like to see their source. I'm not exactly an experienced coder (as is apparent from a simple question as this), and if anyone could offer some tips I'd be most grateful. Thank you!
PS, I'm using OSX, in case that would matter to any solutions, though it oughtn't to.
