Visual novels are a great mix between literature and video games, giving the "player" a chance to make their own decisions in the story. Ren'Py allows users to write their own.
The Rhode Island Computer Museum will present a Workshop on Ren'Py. This is a software that kids can use to create their own visual novels/text-based adventures. Participants will come up with their own story and implement it into text using a Python-like programming langauge.
