Easily create dynamic visual novel content and sequenced animations with VNgen by XGASOFT. Powered by Quantum, VNgen uses a powerful scripting system within GameMaker Studio, breaking the limits of GML to deliver high-quality presentation both in the IDE and on target devices.

A complete rewrite of the popular Edge VN, VNgen reimagines visual novel design from the ground up. As a sequenced animation platform the possibilities are endless, offering a combination of built-in transitions and animations plus support for user-created animation scripts using simple keyframe logic. As a visual novel engine, VNgen supports virtually limitless entities of every kind, all part of a flexible, modular structure which can be customized to suit almost any user's needs.

Just want something simple? Good news: VNgen handles the complex stuff so you don't have to. Many functions have both simplified and extended counterparts, offering something for every level of programming experience.

Building a full game? Great! As an extension of GameMaker Studio, VNgen can be used entirely on its own or as a layer on top of your own custom code and game mechanics. You can even integrate your own code into VNgen without modifying anything!

VNgen isn't just a visual novel engine--it's a completely new way to create content in GameMaker!
