O₂ Engine

A HTML5 based Visual Novel Engine



Bringing Visual Novels to all Devices

The O2 Engine, based on HTML5, works on Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

Compatible with KAG3

The O2 Engine boasts compatibility with Japan's most famous novel game engine KiriKiri, and can interpret KAG scripts.

HTML5

As the O2 Engine works purely off HTML5, it is possible to run novels on modern browsers, even on mobile devices without the need for any third party applets such as Flash. This allows the engine to function on any modern browser, without the need for further extensions.

Packaging

Novels created on the O2 Engine not only function in a browser, but can be packaged as an application for iOS, Android, Windows and Mac.


Interactive Sample

This is a sample novel created on the O2 Engine.
Through the use of the iframe tag,
it is possible to paste the game on any web page.


Plans
