An easy to use and cross-platform visual novel maker.

What is Belle?

Belle is cross-platform visual novel maker focused on being user friendly.
Despite of being in early stages of development, it's reasonably stable and provides many tools for creating complex visual novels and other 2-D games.
Belle is actually composed by two different applications:

  • Editor - For creating/editing games.
  • Engine - For running games.

Free and open source

Belle is free and open source software , both the editor and the engine are released under the GNU General Public License v3 . This means you can modify this software and adapt it to your needs. It also means you can use it freely to make commercial or non-commercial games.


Belle's editor works on:

  • GNU/Linux
  • Windows (XP and newer)
  • Mac OS X (10.4+)

Belle's engine on the other hand runs inside your browser, which means your games can run pratically anywhere !
Smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops, all you need is a modern browser.

Easy to use

Belle tries to be easy to use by not requiring any programming skills, instead everything is done by a WYSIWYG graphical editor. It has a similar design to Novelty .

Easy to distribute

Since the engine runs directly on your browser, you don't need to worry about compiling and distributing libraries. Your games can be easily distributed either online or offline.
