Visual novel engine written in Python, with full access to Python as 
needed. Download includes a tutorial written with renpy. You can look as 
source code in a separate window as you go (at least earlier version I 
used did). Also has 150+ free games/novels to download.

"Ren'Py is a free and cross-platform engine that helps you use words, 
pictures, and sounds to tell stories with the computer."
