I was going to make a visual novel with Ren'py, so I started learning the Python programming language, but in the end it turned out that Ren'py wasn't what I wanted to use at all. It did not have all of the features I was looking for. How exactly would I get started in making a visual novel from scratch, and for the Nintendo DS (or at least able to be converted to work on the Nintendo DS somehow)? I was looking to make a little visual novel with more than sound, images, and text... With video and RPG elements and inventory, as well. My grasp of the language right now isn't all that great, but I assure you that I can at least work with most anything you give me.
