Dating sim sprites

Dating sims are a video game subgenre of simulation games, usually Japanese, with romantic elements.

A framework is a set of Ren'Py script files that adds large amounts of new functionality to Ren'Py.

At the cost of having to learn the (potentially idiosyncratic) way the framework does things, using a framework lets you create new types of games with Ren'Py.

These frameworks are not part of Ren'Py proper, and are supported by their creators.

The dating sim engine provides a framework for creating dating-sim style games.
