    LoveStory - A VisualNovel Library for LovePotion (v1.0)

    LoveStory is a VisualNovel library for LovePotion on the Nintendo Switch.
    LoveStory’s purpose is to simplify the creation of VisualNovels as well as the integration of a simple to use DialogueSystem for story driven games for Nintendo Switch.
    To write your own VisualNovels I reccomend to download the demo-game and edit novel.lua to your needs.
    You can find a full documentation of how to use LoveStory in the LoveStory_Documentation.pdf attached to this thread.
    If you have questions or need support, don't hesitate to write me a pm or ask directly here.

    Download Here:


    Features of LoveStory:
    • Easy to use dialogue implementation for the creation of VisualNovels or other story-driven games
    • No fancy programming skills needed to create VisualNovels with the help of this library
    • Changeable character pictures for emotions and clothing-sets
    • Decision making for complex story-lines and multiple endings
    • Two characters can be shown the same time
    • Complete touch-support for easy game control
    • Dialogue boxes can be hidden with touch-swipe or joycon-input
    • Sound and music support: You are able to create full dubbed versions of your in-game conversations
    • Easy managing of multiple characters thanks to character-classes
    • Special character-screen when holding the switch in portrait-mode, with a big picture and more character information shown (Currently not working: Use R-Button)
    • You are able to show a background image with or without your characters in front and easily change it anytime
    • Skip all the current dialogue with only holding down the LZ-key (shoulder-button)
    • Future Updates: If the community has wishes for future improvements or features I will try to implement them in one of the next versions

    Please also give me feedback of what you liked, and what you disliked..
    Are you thinking of using it ?
    What is your opinion towards VisualNovels in general?

    I also want to emphasize again, that you can also use this in other games, too! (Use it in RPGs for writing NPC-Dialogues for example..)
    So it is more than just VisualNovels..

    I really appreciate the likes :wub:, but I would love to have some detailed feedback, too! :creep:

    Thanks!
    But can't test (FW 4.0.1), LoveStory breaks with "Lua Error! main.lua:17:bad argument #1 to 'setRandomSeed' (number expected, got nil)". :(

    Okay .. strange ..

    This is just a random generator I implement in every LovePotion game, but it is actually not needed for LoveStory, I guess..

    Can you try to delete line 17 of main.lua ??

    Or replace your main.lua with the file inside this zip-file, please :)

    Oh and would be great, if you could tell me if it works now.. (I will publish a fix then)
