What is Narrative Game Engine (NGE) ?
NGE is a 2D engine using DirectX developped for creating Narrative Games. A popular game genre that is a narrative game is for exemple Bishojo games or dating simulation games.
Those are games where scenario and text is very important and where you can choose sometimes your own answers that will influence the scenario.

Tsukushite Agechau 4 (I'm gonna Serve you 4), is a perfect exemple of what a narrative game is.
(check out to know more about this game. Also, homepage of the japanese developer)

Toon, another game that fits to the genre.
(company homepage:

As you can see, all those games involve the same components (text, background music, sound effects, pictures, additionnal sprites). NGE is a complete engine that allows you to create your own narrative game without any knowledge of game programming.
