    Right now, you can redo Ace and at least to some extent, MV to make it work to make VNs with RPG elements.

    Will you be able to make VNM work to make RPGs with VN elements or VN with RPG elements?

    And minigames. I'm a huge fan of Kinetic Novels and Novels with Choices and Sound Novels. However, I'm also very much so a fan of VNs with minigame and RPG elements.

    OP is asking if Visual Novel Maker, new software coming out soon, will be customizable with plugins or whatever like Ace and MV are.

    Basically I'm asking if I can do some major reprogramming with Visual Novel Maker coming out soon(tm) like I can with Ace and MV so that I can add RPG elements and minigames.

    Archeia mentioned the Princess Maker games in relation to the maker, so... hopefully? I am also interested in what this brings to the table asides from a pure Visual Novel engine--not that it doesn't look nice from what we've already seen (because it definitely does) but without some flexibility it goes from "must have now" to "when I can afford it".

    They did say you could use JavaScript and/or CoffeScript.

    Hi there, we stated this in VNMaker Steam Store Page but I'll reiterate here just in case!
    1.) VNM supports plugins made in CoffeeScript or Javascript. Similar to RPG Maker using JS to add new features.
    2.) VNM also supports Editor Plugins. What makes this different from RPG Maker is that you can program new features for the editor itself. This means, if you want to change how an event command works and have the editor reflect it, you can. If you want to a new command or tab, you can do it.

    I hope that answers your question. :)
