Ahh this looks amazing, I can't wait to try it out once I've started my visual novel project! I've been looking for a way to make visual novels in godot and this seems like the perfect solution for someone who has no experience making games.

Inspired by Ren'Py, Rakugo is a project aimed at providing a better toolset for narrative-based games on Godot.
Simplify your project, if it is a visual novel, point and click, RPG,
interactive text game or many other styles and blends of styles.
Here is Project github: https://github.com/rakugoteam/Rakugo
Please considering joining the official team.
If your game uses Rakugo write to me on Discord.
Story driven games
It means games that are for example:
- Visual Novels
- Click & Point Adventures
You can use it with:
- RakuScript early WIP
Q: So it's about adding a refined writing and dialogue system to the engine?
A: Yes, and more - nodes, objects and funcs to make easy to provide mechanics like in point&click and rpgs.
Q: As a scenarist, what would I gain from using Rakugo over Ren'Py or Twine ?
A: It is made as godot addon - you can use all godot features. You can make your game 2d, 2.5d or 3d - you can only 2d in Ren'Py. You can easy add minigames or mix it with other game genre. It will have mechanics for point&click games and rpgs - Ren'Py and Twine are only for vn. This project's dialog functions can do more than Ren'Py's equivalents.
Q: How does the this project interact with the engine ?
A: For now this project is a singleton and a collection of special nodes. There is also gui include in example project that is connected with project and has all functions like in a Ren'Py game.
Q: Is it easy to use ?
A: For now it is not that easy as I want it to be, but I am working to make it use RakuScript (this tool own language).

I downloaded "The Question" to try it out. But the text doesn't display after a dialogue choice ?
Way godot works it makes that first time it load Rakugo plugin it load it in bad way. So try reopen project. I will look it to that, but it should works. Do you have any error messages ?
I'm using Godot 3.2.3
I reopened the project, the plugin is working.
There is no error message when the game is playing.
