NONE OF THE MONEY UP GOES TO COVER MY LIVING EXPENSES. THE DONATIONS ALL GO TO COMMISSIONS TO FURTHER DEVELOP MY PROJECTS, AND THE TAXATION INVOLVED.

I repeat, I'm not here looking for people to cover my food or board, I already have a job but the taxman does indeed exist in Italy as well, even on donations - it's approximately 20% of the total yearly sum, so some months the commission output could be slowed down but never stopped-. That said, hello thar, Meinos Kaen here and welcome to JPDE!

When I say JPDE, I say the meaning of the acronym which is Just Producing Digital Entertainment and also, the fan-game that started it all.


Disclaimer - This is not endorsed by Rooster Teeth in any way. Views, opinions, thoughts are all my own. Rooster Teeth and RWBY are trade names or registered trademarks of Rooster Teeth Productions, LLC. © Rooster Teeth Productions, LLC.
This is a freely distributed fan-game. If you are being charged by anyone anywhere to play JPDE, you’re being scammed.

JPDE is a completely free Visual Novel I'm coding, writing, scripting and editing, based on the RWBY animated series. It's a completely original story set during the timeline of V2 and V3 developed in Ren'Py and runs on Windows, Mac, Linux and Android Phones. Depending on how many and which bonds you will have made during your semester at Beacon Academy, you may influence the ending of the storyline and even canon events from the show. I invite you to support the original release by Rooster Teeth.

WHY PATREON?
I can't draw, model or compose so I have to commission everything and it's only fair that those people get paid for their effort and skills, especially since for some art is a living. People like BunnyVoid -who's the talented woman who will be making all of the game's backgrounds- Sa-Dui and ArSonicArtz.

JPDE was born out of a genuine love for the RWBY character Penny Polendina but it found its audience and even people willing to support me financially in its development. So much support, in fact, that eventually I got more than I could possibly put monthly into JPDE. Thus, two new projects came to life.



Ars Oratoria is a completely original visual novel/debate game, inspired by the likes of Danganronpa and Ace Attorney. Set in the fantasy world of Monetta, you follow the trials and tribulations -WOO, AA REFERENCE!- of Bruno Tullio Vachellis in a series of Holy Debates opposite professional debaters from the world over...

And yes, that is a fish girl there. Her name's Pomare. Thanks for noticing. :P


codeDevil is the most recent and final of my projects, a light novel about a fantastical journey of two co-protagonists, inspired by Final Fantasy III, Rave Master and Berserk -yes, quite the eclectic cornucopia of inspirations, but it will make sense-. The girl in the banner is one of the two protagonists, Princess Sade... And no, she's not the titular devil. :P

HOW CAN I HELP?
First, I invite you to download the latest version of JPDE, you can find the link right here. Then, join the community on our Discord Server. We're fun and we don't bite, I swear :D

If any of these projects sound like something you'd like to contribute to, please think about becoming a Patron by choosing one of the reward tiers on the right. Lastly, even if you can't spare any money -I understand that, there are more important things you could spend it on than a RWBY Visual Novel which is also why the tiers are not that crazy-, please try and spread the word around.

Thank you for your attention and enjoy!
