Cloudnovel's July Jam

  • What is the July Jam?

    The July Jam is Cloudnovel's first visual novel event that takes place in the month of July 2015 where users on Cloudnovel create a visual novel from start to finish based on a theme selected for the Jam.

    Cloudnovel's July Jam is inspired by the famous NaNoReNo event held on lemmasoft forums each year.


    Do I have to sign up to participate?

    Yes in order to participate, you must be a user on Cloudnovel. This event is only available for Cloudnovel creators and visual novels created using Cloudnovel's engine/creator. (Signing up is free, and we accept any user who puts at least three words in the application)


    Is there a prize, and will there be judging?

    Yes, all the visual novels created for the July Jam will be judged by Cloudnovel admins based on the art and story (most importantly story). The winner of the July Jam visual novel event will have their visual novel featured on the front page of Cloudnovel's website for an entire month.


    Why should I participate in the July Jam?

    Well it's summer time, and why not do something fun? Many people start their visual novel projects but never finish them, because we all know visual novels take a lot of work, time, and effort to make and sometimes life(or laziness) gets in the way. With a deadline, and a little competition, use this opportunity to create a visual novel this summer!

No, we're not sure if this is gonna be annual. Just a few users on our site said they'd like an event so we set it up together to do something fun.

Tbh we don't expect much people to join, but I'm just posting this here if some people wanted to do something for the summer.

Sounds interesting. And I have been looking for a way to create online visual novels.
Some questions about the Jam: Does the VN have to be only horror-themed or can it be mixed genre? Are multiple endings necessary, or can it be more like a survive-or-die type game?

@SeventhStranger
Aww okay, well have fun at the Jam you're participating in! (and I love your avatar xD)

@CSV
Nope, it doesn't have to be centered around horror, just any visual novel you make in the jam has to contain the genre horror! (on CN you can add up to 5 genres to your VN)
And it can be anything you want, a dating sim, a kinetic novel, or with multiple endings!
What we're gonna be judging on most, is the story and writing, tho keep in mind we're going to be judging on how related the story is to the theme. However, if you make a REALLY good story, that's not necessarily a horror story, then you also have a good chance of getting first place!

THE JULY JAM HAS BEGUN!
