It's February now... that critical time of the year where you prepare yourself Physically and Mentally for the March frenzy which is NaNoRenO month... let's go straight to the point...

Whose joining NaNoRenO 2015?

"POOF" (Disappears)

[ Edits by PyTom below this point]

The most recent phrasing of the NaNoRenO rules is:
  • Takes place in March
  • You can only begin actual production of your game in March
  • Brainstorming, plot outlining, character sketches, and anything that does not lead to the direction production of assets is okay
  • Sketches of sprite poses, backgrounds, and CGs is NOT okay
  • Creative Commons material is okay
  • There are no "winners," everyone who manages to release their game on March 31/April 1 has completed NaNoRenO
  • You may release a buggy version of your game by the deadline and fix it up later

I'll also point out that this year, NaNoRenO coincides with the Spring Thing festival. As NaNoRenO is a development jam, and Spring Thing is about releasing, it seems reasonable that a game could be entered in both - and this would be a good way for the VN community to reach out to the larger IF community. (That is, assuming you're making a non-linear visual novel.)

I've been wracking my brain for project ideas. This would actually be excellent practice for me, because I have trouble reining my ideas into manageable sizes and keeping them that way.

I'd really like to join, I'm quite sad that I couldn't make it last year, but maybe if I tried solo, I could? Though then again...there are quite a few games that come out in March that I know I'll get addicted to, sooo...LOL Not to mention my busy uni schedule. Ugh, maybe I'll figure something out, make something small.

THIS IS THE YEAR WHERE I FINALLY DO IT!! Same jazz as usual, I'd be up for doing spritework and maybe like up to 3 CGs. I've had a few ideas coming up to this month but I'm not much of the writing side of things and my schedule doesn't allow me to really do something solo in a single month, haha.

After a bit of floundering, I've actually had a spark of inspiration! I was pretty set on trying to come to come up with a colorful fantasy of some sort, but I ended up with something decidedly more sinister.

If anyone wants to partner up with a writer/scripter on a not romance-centric visual novel with some fairly dark themes, I'm ready to go when you are!

Are fanfiction allowed? Would using the setting of a pre-existing franchise (such as Madoka Magica or Fate), using an "original" story + set of characters be acceptable for submission?

Traditionally, we've allowed fanfiction in NaNoRenO, although it's been somewhat rare. NaNoRenO is fairly rules light - if you think you're making a NaNoRenO game, and it it comes out within a few weeks of April 1, who are we to argue?

You'd have to ask Spring Thing for their rules, if you're going to participate there.

I would like to do this; I think it'd be a lot of fun! Even have a few story ideas swimming about for a modern fantasy adventure or battle of wits, or even a slice-of-life rom-com; just need to work on finding the other members of the team (read: artists).

Kitty and I are considering it this year >> Not that we don't have 2-3 other projects to work on, but hey, we got bit by the shiny-new-project bug and we want to get it out of our system asap, since it's a small thing :'D (way smaller than AJ xD)

If you follow us on twitter, you probably know what I'm talking about :'3
