 A complete rewrite of the popular Edge VN, VNgen reimagines visual novel design from the ground up, providing access to advanced features previously only accessible to high-budget studios with custom engines. As a sequenced animation platform the possibilities are endless, offering a combination of built-in transitions and animations plus support for user-created animation scripts using simple keyframe logic. As a visual novel engine, VNgen supports virtually limitless entities of every kind, all part of a flexible, modular structure which can be customized to suit almost any user's needs.

Just want something simple? Good news: VNgen handles the complex stuff so you don't have to. Many functions have both simplified and extended counterparts, offering something for every level of programming experience.

Building a full game? Great! As an extension of GameMaker Studio, VNgen can be used entirely on its own or as a layer on top of your own custom code and game mechanics. You can even integrate your own code into VNgen without modifying anything!

In addition, VNgen features...

  • Fully resolution and framerate independent design

  • Compatibility with desktop, mobile, and console platforms (HTML5 partially supported)

  • Event/action structure with over 10 different types of entities to create, modify, animate, and destroy

  • Advanced text generation with markup for style, speed, pausing, links, and more

  • Four-color gradient blending for most elements

  • Dynamic mesh support for most elements

  • Advanced 2.5D camera-style perspective

  • Custom depth sorting of elements within a single object

  • Full-color backlog

  • Composite character system with unlimited layers

  • Built-in multi-language support

  • Built-in debug mode with command console and a host of real-time statistics

  • ... And much more! (Seriously.)

VNgen isn't just a visual novel engine--it's a completely new way to create content in GameMaker!
