A downloadable Framework

Download NowName your own price

Disco Framework is a Disco Elysium-inspired framework for the game engine Ren'Py. Made for those who would like to make Disco Elysium fangames and playable fanfics.

Created by the artist Katy133.


Framework includes:

  • A playable tutorial to walk you through the different features.
  • Coloured text inspired by the Skills in Disco Elysium.
  • Customised textbox.
  • Animated health damage and morale damage.
  • Animated stat raise effects.
  • Animated success and fail checks.
  • Dialogue choices with text that changes colour when you hover over each of them.
  • Custom mouse cursor.
  • Designed to minimise programming knowledge needed to make a game with the framework.

Requires a copy of the freeware engine Ren'Py.

Released under the CC-BY-NC-4.0 license.

Games that use this framework

Let me know if you make a game with this, I'd love to see it and showcase it.


How do I use this framework?

Download and install Ren'Py. Create a New Project using the launcher. Open the project's folder. Replace the "game" folder with the Disco Framework game folder.

How do I edit .rpy files?

Download and install a script editor (Ren'Py recommends several free ones) and use the program to open and edit the .rpy files.

Can you add x?

I don't plan on adding additional content to the framework (I want to focus on my current projects), but please feel free to contact me if there's something you think Disco Elysium fangame devs would find jolly useful.

Why don't you include assets from Disco Elysium?

I specifically avoided using assets directly taken from the game to avoid copyright issues. Disco Elysium's assets are owned by studio ZA/UM.

Where can I find your Disco Elysium fanfics?

On AO3.

Wow, I've been struggling to put something like this together as a new Ren'Py user. So happy I found this, thank you!


What a great idea and tool ^^ 


This is really cool.
