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.


Ren'Py 7.2.2 is out! This is mostly a patch release, but it also includes support for the new accessibility menu, accessed by pressing 'a'. This menu puts current and future engine-level accessibility features in one place.

Ren'Py 7.2 adds new features to Ren'Py, including:

  • Menus now take arguments, and so do menu choices.
  • The say statement can now take a temporary image attribute, making is possible to change a character's emotion for a single statement.
  • The new im.Blur image manipulator can blur static images.
  • Layeredimage groups can now contain non-conflicting attributes while still being automatically declared.
  • It's possible to display a non-looping Movie displayable, and to have a movie display a static image before the first frame renders.
  • A fullscreen Ren'Py will not minimize when the mouse changes monitors.
  • Text now takes renpy.BASELINE as a yanchor, which allows one to position the text's baseline.
  • The CTC screen now takes additional arguments, including the kind of click-to-continue indicator being shown.

Ren'Py 7.2 updates Ren'Py to work with the current Android SDK, and contains a number of other bugfixes.

Android and iOS Support

When building Android packages, iOS packages, or web distributions, Ren'Py will prompt you to download RAPT (Ren'Py Android Packaging Tool), Renios (Ren'Py iOS Support), or Renpyweb (Web Platform Support).
