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'm happy to announce Ren'Py 7.3.4, a further patch to Ren'Py 7.3. This fixes two major graphical glitches, and also adds the ability to pass "[prefix_]" to image names everywhere, rather than only in styles.
Ren'Py 7.3.3 was intended to improve performance and compatibility, fix bugs, and make available minor features that have been added since Ren'Py 7.3.2 was released.
Some highlights are:
Ren'Py 7.3.2 is a patch release to Ren'Py 7.3, mostly intended to fix bugs and address issues that people have reported. As some of the bugs have significant performance and correctness impact, everyone who upgraded to Ren'Py 7.3.0 or 7.3.1 should move on to this version.
Ren'Py 7.3.1 added a few minor new features, including the ability to customize descriptive text.
Ren'Py 7.3 is the first release of Ren'Py with support for running on the web platform, inside a web browser supporting HTML 5, Web Assembly, and WebGL. Right now, this support is in beta, as it's limited by the capabilities of the web platform itself, but it's suitable for making web demos of Ren'Py games.
In addition to that, this release adds many new features to Ren'Py. These include:
There are also a number of other changes, so check out the changelog for all of what's new.
Ren'Py 7.3 is brought to you by:
and myself, Tom "PyTom" Rothamel.

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 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). 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", "renios", or "web" directory into the "renpy-7.3.4" directory.)
