Tell Her a Story

This was the first visual novel I ever released! I made this in one month back in 2012 for Nanoreno. For whatever reason, I gave myself the challenge of filling every role on the team. I did the art, the writing, the coding, and (regretfully) the music and still managed to finish by April 1st, 2012. I learned a lot while making Tell Her a Story, and it’ll always have a special place in my heart.

Unfortunately, I only have a link to the Windows version. The other uploads were lost.

Today’s the day that Cole will finally propose to his girlfriend Shannon. As he reaches for the ring, however, he realizes he’s made a grave mistake! He gave the jacket with the ring in it to his best friend Naima, who’s on a bus heading far, far away. And, worst of all, Shannon has somewhere to be right after they finish their meal. Now, armed with a pencil & a pack of index cards, he has to stall for time while waiting for Naima’s return by distracting his girlfriend by drawing and telling her a story.


120+ uncolored index card illustrations by a non-artist! And better yet, many of them are blurry!
9 (mostly inaccurate) story genres to choose from! You pick the setting for his story!
An original soundtrack by a non-composer that’s even better when muted (yeah)!
20,000 words that should have been proofread!
Ren’Py standard GUI, except for the main menu!
A Bx1G romance story that pretends to have more endings than it really has!

Everything made by:

Yes. Everything. The story, the coding, the music, the art.
