The Gluon project is an open framework for creating and distributing games, supporting the flow of the idea all the way from the author to the player of the finished game. The current goal for the first stable release is to create games using 2D graphics. The reasoning behind this is that the niche for this type of visual is very large and so far untapped by specialized tools. In the world of 3D games there are solutions such as Unity3D, which provide a distribution system, but in the 2D game development world there are no tools to provide a complete ecosystem for creation, distribution, and feedback gathering. The three main audiences of Gluon are game creators, game players, and application programmers. Each of these are a user of one of the tools.
Revised is a visual editor (or wizard/assistant/GUI) for Ren’Py, the visual-novel game editor. Ren'Py has a lot of capabilities, and Revised's purpose is not to allow everything that Ren'Py can do, just some of the basics. You can think of it as a step-by-step wizard to create the skeleton of a Ren'Py game.
