Of course, creating any kind of game is such a broad topic that it's going to be very hard to "teach you" in a forum post, but hanging around the places I listed above, lurking a bit and peeking inside other people's code (when they leave it unobfuscated for that purpose) should, over time, allow you to get a good understanding of what to do. Haha~ I find it hard to make a dating sim game with it. Just worry about how to make it into a dating sim game like make the relationship between you and the guy or girl closer. I'm afraid that for that you'll have to dig around for tutorials on the DSE (Dating Sim Engine), as my field of knowledge is more on drawings than coding.
Which part of my post do you find particularly hard to understand? After running Renpy's launcher I chose "Options" from there and created a Projects Directory.
The technical definition of a dating simulation game, known as a romantic simulation game in Japan, can involve several technical elements such as a time limit, several statistics such as looks and charm which can be boosted through exercise, or an "attraction meter" which can increase or decrease depending on one's decisions.
Some original-English dating sims include Sim Girls, In a typical dating sim, the player controls a male avatar surrounded by female characters.
There are also GL games, which focus on female/female relationships, and BL Games, which focus on male/male pairings.
The game lasts for a fixed period of game time, such as one month or three years.I then unzipped the contents of the DSE inside my Projects directory.Then I got back to the main Launcher page and chose "Select Project" - the DSE is already there.As for Ren'Py, you can download the latest build and read through the demo game (The question should have its script unobfuscated, so you can take a peek and learn from it). Yes, Ren'Py can make dating sim games, you have to use the DSE (Dating Sim Engine) to do so; it's a separate download, you can look around for it on the Ren'Py site.Mugenjohncel recently also created DSE the game, which is essentially a game demonstrating how to use Ren'Py's dating sim engine's functions, as I understand it. When you say you want to figure out how to make the relationships between characters work do you just mean you want to figure out what sort of code to use?
This can lead to confusion, as visual novels are considered a subgenre of adventure games and are not technically included in the dating sim genre.
