       renpy - engine for creating visual novels


       renpy [path to the script directory]


       Ren'Py  is  a  programming  language  and  runtime,  intended  to  ease  the  creation  of
       visual-novel type games. It contains features that  make  it  easy  to  display  thoughts,
       dialogue,  and  menus;  to display images to the user; to write game logic; and to support
       the saving and loading of games.

       Ren'Py tries to be like an executable script, allowing you to get a working  game  without
       much more effort than is required to type the game script into the computer.

       Ren'Py  is  implemented  on  top of python, and that python heritage shows through in many
       places. Many Ren'Py statements allow python expressions to be used,  and  there  are  also
       Ren'Py  statements  that  allow  for  the  execution of arbitrary python code. Many of the
       less-used features of Ren'Py are exposed to the user by way of python. By  only  requiring
       use  of the simplest features of python, it's hoped that Ren'Py will be usable by all game


       If you run the program without any arguments, zou will get an  interactive  launcher  from
       where you can select, run and work different projects.

       For  running  a  script, you need to give the full path to the directory that contains the
       game you want to play.

       For example: renpy /usr/share/games/renpy/demo/

       To learn how to use the game interface, you should install and play renpy-demo.


       The game data for each user is stored at ~/.renpy/ directory.

       The scripts can be installed in the system bz placing them under /usr/share/games/renpy/ ,
       but  you  can  run  any  script  in an arbitrarz directory just by telling the path as the
       parameter to the game.
