Technical Notes



NScripter is a software engine that is used for the creation of visual novels, written by Naoki Takahashi. Due to its simplicity and its liberal license (while it is not open source, royalty-free commercial use is permitted), it quickly became popular in Japan, and was used for a number of high-profile commercial and dōjin titles, such as HaniHani and Tsukihime.

(NScripter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)


NScLisper is a Lisp interpreter running on NScripter. It uses only basic instructions of NScripter and it uses no plug-in written in other programming languages.

Lyrical Lisp

Lyrical Lisp (魔法言語リリカル☆Lisp, lit. Magical Language Lyrical Lisp) is a Lisp tutorial game. It is created using NScripter and NScLisper. Lyrical Lisp includes NScLisper and the term "Lyrical Lisp" sometimes indicates NScLisper.
