You only need to download one of these three files. Each contains the full Ren'Py software development kit, with everything needed to develop Ren'Py games for Windows XP and up, Mac OS X 10.6 and up, and Linux x86/x86_64. The development environment contains the files needed to produce games for all three platforms, the Ren'Py tutorial, and "The Question", an example game.
Ren'Py is free to download and use for commercial and non-commercial purposes. It may be modified and distributed under the terms of its license.
Additional Downloads. When necessary, the Ren'Py SDK will automatically download additional packages, such as text editors and Android/iOS support. These packages are available for direct download at the bottom of this page.
I've released Ren'Py 22.214.171.124, a release that adds support for the Atom text editor to Ren'Py. Atom is a modern and approachable editor with support for a number of features, like code folding.
To try Atom, please go to the Ren'Py preferences, and select Atom as your text editor. The normal Ren'Py text editing features will then use Atom. Further customization can be done inside Atom itself, including switching between dark and light themes.
This release also includes a few new features, and a number of important fixes, so everyone should upgrade.
Special thanks to William Tumeo for the initial creation of the language-renpy Atom plugin, and then for transferring it to the Ren'Py project.

A list of changes that may require you to update your game can be found at:
When first asked to edit a file, the Ren'Py launcher will prompt you to download and install an editor. As this may fail if your Internet connection is unreliable, the editors can be downloaded separately. To install, extract the contents of the editor archive to the Ren'Py directory.
When building Android or iOS packages, Ren'Py will prompt you to download RAPT (Ren'Py Android Packaging Tool) or Renios (Ren'Py iOS Support). As these downloads may fail if your Internet connection is unreliable, these packages can be downloaded separately. To install, extract the contents of the archive to the Ren'Py directory. (Place the "rapt" or "renios" directory into the "renpy-188.8.131.52" directory.)
