Rakugo is framework (inspired by Ren'Py) for story driven games in Godot. It is a Story Management Plugin. The idea is to have a ready to use plug-in for stories, so developers can create narrative driven games with all the amazing features and tools of Godot 3.1+. 

Here is Project github: https://github.com/rakugoteam/Rakugo

Please considering joining the official team.


Game using Rakugo 2.0.x:

Games using Rakugo v 0.9.x :

If your game uses Rakugo write to me on Discord.

Story driven games

It means games that are for example:

  • Visual Novels
  • Click & Point Adventures
  • RPG

You can use it with:

  • GDScript
  • C# ToDo
  • RakugoScript ToDo
  • VisualScript ToDo


Q: So it's about adding a refined writing and dialogue system to the engine?

A: Yes, and more - nodes, objects and funcs to make easy to provide mechanics like in point&click and rpgs.

Q: As a scenarist, what would I gain from using Rakugo over Ren'Py or Twine ?

A: It is made as godot addon - you can use all godot features. You can make your game 2d, 2.5d or 3d - you can only 2d in Ren'Py. You can easy add minigames or mix it with other game genre. It will have mechanics for point&click games and rpgs - Ren'Py and Twine are only for vn. This project's dialog functions can do more than Ren'Py's equivalents.

Q: How does the framework interact with the engine ?

A: For now this framework is a singleton and a collection of special nodes. There is also gui include in example project that is connected with the framework and has all functions like in a Ren'Py game.

Q: Is it easy to use ?

A: For now it is not that easy as I want it to be, but I am working to make it use RakugoScript (this framework's own language) and visual script. Now are docs/tutorials available:  Documentation Status (WIP).
