Our animation timeline editor allows for cool special effects and animations for your visual novel. You can animate characters, backgrounds, or even make cool camera animation effects like panning or zooming.

FLAGS OR “VARIABLES”

We allow the use of creating flags (more commonly known as “variables”) to set custom character names, health and mana statistics, turn based battle system, and much more advanced features in your visual novel game.

SCREENS CREATOR

With the ability to create custom screens, you can make inventory systems, main menus, CG gallery screens, extra bonus rooms, maps, and much more..

LAYERED ASSETS

Within our scene editor our assets are organized by layers just like layers within a paint program like Paint Tool SAI or Adobe Photoshop.
