Talefab.com is an versatile online game engine. The main purpose of the game engine was to create visual novels, but RPG games, online escape rooms and educational games can be made too.

NO CODING

Unlike other game editor, Talefab.com does not require any coding skills. While the editor is fully visual, you can create rooms, scenes, models without writing a single line of code, and the drag-and-drop  system makes it way easier to place everything in position.

ITEMS & INTERACTIONS

Maybe other visual novel makers lack capabilities, like item creating, interacting with items? Well, not Talefab.com. Creating and editing items and making them clickable is one of the crucial functionality of the game engine.

Will you ever release it as a download? I'm not fond of web software since it always requires internet connection.

Yes! The games created with the engine will be downloadable to windows standalone within a premium membership, this will also include many new features (if I'll have enough backers, I'll make also an APK downloader for it)

I'll launch a kickstarter in this summer to fundraise the development, and the premium package will be developed until december.

Maybe later on, the editor itself will be downloadable too, however it will need internet connection for log into your account.

I just released the Windows download option of the created games for free :)

The above link says "Download Now" -- but you can't. The link takes you to a web page where you can start making your own visual novels. Seems like a good start, but, for instance, how do I set screen size and/or image size?

While it's a web based project, it doesn't have a download link - I added the projects' URL instead.

The game's canvas is 4:3, and it resizes to full width or height, depending on screen resolution. With "F" or double click you can make it full screen tho.

In the game editor the canvas is 800 x 600 for the moment, but I'm planning to add wide screen resolution also.

Thanks for the information! I'm not a fan of facebook -- is there a discord I could join?

I'm not a fan either, that's why I was planning to make one channel on discord also.

I'll get back to you, when it's up.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, let me know!

Will do. Are you planning on making any tutorials? That would help a lot..

Yes, the're on my backlogs with priority!

Also, there is an interactive step-by-step tutorial system in-build in the editor.

Is there an export/packaging option for the completed projects or do the games remain web based?

Not right now, but this feature is on backlogs. 

Technically speaking it can be done fairly easy, but...

I'm planning a free media repository too (backgrounds, sprites, items collection), and it depends if the artists of the repo's image grant the license for the used arts to be downloaded together with the games created. (Ofc, this applies only if you use images from the repo in your game).

Right now, I'm in talk with some of them, like @Rachel Chan, to clarify this questions.

Right, but I create my own art though. ;) Will be watching the development of this app with interest.

Ofc, the best practice is to get your own art.

The media repo is meant to be an aid for those, who can't or don't want to add their own arts.

I've wanted to do a point-and-click game for a while now, and this looks like it'll be perfect for it!  I'm looking forward to trying it out!

I'm happy to hear that!

If you have any questions, feel free to join our Community Hub too.

This looks really cool, going to check it out, thanks for making it available!
