Visual Novels

Develop your storytelling and video game design skills through building visual novel games! Campers will work on the core concepts of narrative formation and learn how to integrate their stories with either pre-made or self-made art assets to make a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure game. They will learn how to plot out games, make branching stories, and build scenes using both Twine and RenPY, a visual novel game development engine using Python.
