Make your own interactive fiction game using Ren'Py
You might be familiar with interactive fiction from 'Choose Your Own Adventure' books, visual novels, or text-based games where what you type controls the story. Ren'Py lets us design our own interactive fiction with the power of Python. It is a game engine with its own scripting language, built on Python and Pygame.
During the session you'll make a start on your own interactive fiction game in Ren'Py, with advice from the workshop coach on how to incorporate native Python code to add extra effects and mini-games within your story.
Pre-requisites: a laptop with Ren'Py installed (get it from www.renpy.org ) and a text editor such as Gedit.
