Can Renpy VNs be played on Nintendo Switch?

#1 Post by aagames » Thu Sep 10, 2020 8:07 pm

I know the Switch can't natively run Python, but is there any way to use Renpy in conjunction with Unity, or some other way to make the game playable?

I don't want to hack my Switch; if possible, I'd like to make the Renpy game salable on the eShop.

Thanks everybody! :mrgreen:

Not sure whether they are still active or not, as they don't seem to reply to emails.

You could probably also check their social media.

They're still posting on twitter, so I'd assume they're still around.
