These Blueprints have already been used for published games and result from the efforts of Woodsy Studio, which has been building visual novels in UE4 for approximately 2 years. This system is designed to handle large-scale scripts with branching, choices, level changes, and more.


I know what it's like to write a script as a simple document and then go through the painful process of converting it to code. This framework vastly simplifies that process. You just have to convert your script into a spreadsheet, then upload it as a datatable. After that, you can take full advantage of the VN Framework to add animated characters, cinematic camera angles, and more to your scenes!
