You don't need to be a developer to start building your VN, Monogatari features a Ren'py-like language designed to be incredibly simple and yet very powerful which will allow you to write your story as easy as i you where just writing it. Because of this, exporting Ren'py games to the web is very easy as well, you'll just need to add some commas and brackets here and there and your game will be ready for the web!
We live in a world surrounded by media, images, sounds, videos and you can add any of them to your visual novel, add music to create a whole environment, sounds to make it even better and sure, you can add voices too so you'll characters will speak. If showing images and sounds is not enough, you can also show videos. Oh, those nice looking SVGs can be used too along with their incredible nice animations, as well as your favorite animated GIFs... All in a Responsive way, the perfect way to make your game playable in almost every device!
With Monogatari, you are in control of your visual novel like never before, change the font, backgrounds, colors, texts, positions, distribution etc. you can change, add and delete whathever you need in incredible ways. Think of your visual novel as a webpage, everything you've seen before on a webpage you can do it now in your visual novel.
Monogatari is an open source project released under the MIT License which means you can use it, modify it, distribute it and pretty much everything so feel free to use it as you want!, there are no special conditions to use it altough all your players and I will really appreciate if you don't put any ads on your VN, adding ads is really easy since it's web based, but again, it's horrible for the users so please try not to do it..
