May 2 - The Four Languages of Ren'Py


All are invited to join the CS department for, The Four Languages of Ren'Py with Tom Rothamel, the creator of Ren'Py. 

Ren'Py is a visual novel engine---used by thousands of creators from around the world---that helps you use words, images, and sounds to tell interactive stories that run on computers and mobile devices. In this talk, the lead developer of Ren'Py will describe the various languages that are the main way that creators interact with Ren'Py; especially two of the languages: The script language that is the main way that users interact with the engine to create games, and the Screen Language that's used to to present user interfaces. We'll cover the how the languages have been designed for the needs of the visual novel medium, and how they are intended to address creators that have not been formally trained in the art

of programming. 

On May 2, this talk will take place in Room 220 in the New Computer Science building at 11:30am. See you there!
