GAMERS DIGITAL LAUNCHES NEW INTERACTIVE STORIES PUBLISHING PARTNERSHIP “STORY BRIDGE”Story Bridge software will allow gamers access to over 460 Ren’Py visual novel games to be played on previously incompatible devices such as the Nintendo Switch

Gamers Digital, a game software publishing firm out Minneapolis, Minnesota has launched a new software partnership program that will provide conversion from the popular visual novel engine Ren’Py from desktop format, previously only playable on Android, Mac and Windows desktops, to many popular systems including mobile phones and video game consoles, specifically the popular Nintendo Switch. 

The proprietary conversion process, created by Gamers Digital and British development studio, Morning Fox, leverages the powerful cross platform Unity Engine. Together with Unity Engine’s unique crossover experience working in both specialized, open source tools used to create these interactive novels and the well-known game engine Unity3D, Gamers Digital and Morning Fox can now bring these popular, interactive visual novels to a much broader audience.

Scott Zerby, Founder of Gamers Digital says, “I was amazed at the number of high-quality, progressive stories that were being told on online sites, but struggled to find a wider audience” Founder and CEO of Morning Fox Craig Johnston adds that, “We are excited to work with Scott to bring this enthusiastic group of storytellers a way to get their work the recognition it so deserves.”

Gamers Digital will launch the Story Bridge software by translating stories from the popular visual novel engine, Ren’Py to be accessed on popular gaming devices. Ren’Py is a popular platform used by storytellers, that combines words, images, and sounds to tell stories with the usually desktop computer. The platform contains both visual novels and life simulation games and an easy-to- learn script language that allows gamers to efficiently write large visual novels and complex simulation games.  Over 460 unique games have been released using this engine to date.

“We look forward to developing partnerships with the creators of great stories and expanding the audience that can enjoy these innovative works,”  Scott say and encourages great story writers to learn more at our website, http://www.gamersdigital.com/stories
