Signed up solo! This will be my first NaNoRenO as well as my first visual novel. Always wanted to get into making them and figured this would be a good way to start.

March 1 has effectively begun for me and maybe some people in Australia, haha. Good luck to all NaNo2016 participants!

Brand new to all of this... Very likely biting off more than I can chew, but I'm gonna do my best. I've loved visual novels for years and always wanted to make my own. I'll be doing most of the work myself, but have a friend who's helping me wherever she can. I hope to have a demo of the story I'll be writing done by the end of the month. Good luck to everyone.

Turns out I'm joining in after all. Will be mainly focusing on writing first before any artwork. So no thread from me for a while, hahaha. (Why oh why did I decide to make a spider a main character?)

Tentatively joining! I don't know if I'll be able to manage (partner and I are trying to get one physical/print-and-play game finished every month, including March) but I had such a great time last year, I really wanna make it work again! Deciding between a queer NSFW game about a mysterious stranger trying to sort out the relationships between a prince and his three wives (cus bisexual poly porn is super fun), and a "Bear Bride" fairytale about a girl who gets a bear totem and goes on a magical journey to collect a cute monster boy harem (inspired by Talen's adopted grandfather, who may have made it up since we can't find it anywhere in Finnish folklore).

(I'm more into the NSFW story, but I worry I may shoot myself in the foot by making the POV character male - seems most of my audience would prefer a lady, but the story doesn't really work that way.)

I wonder, if I wind up using my initial design drawings as the sprites, do I get disqualified? I'm not expecting anybody to come after me as the Renai Police or anything, but I don't want to be, I dunno, cheating. I feel like I'm overthinking this in a way which does not match the spirit of NaNoRenO. Which means I am overthinking overthinking it >3>;

[EDIT] After thinking about it for a bit, I have to admit that finishing my YuriJam project, SwanXSwan, will be a better idea than starting a fresh NaNo. So, it's IntRenaiMo for me! I really hope I still qualify for the tag on itch.io :p

Joining in solo! I won't have much time during March though, since instead of making a finished VN I'll try to make a rough demo/prototype for the VN I want to do afterwards. This is my first time doing NaNoReNo though, so I hope I won't mess things up!

I'm very interested in joining NanoReno 2016 this year ^_^

But does it have to on Ren'py engine? Or can it be on any game engine?

I was interested in joining this year, but for some reason I had it in my head that NaNoRenO was in June or July. I'm not gonna join a week late, that's a huge chunk of development time.

I think I'll just do it next year, how disappointing. :[

I totally forgot about this until now, but I won't let that stop me! I'm hoping I can get something put together in the next couple weeks.

So is the final submission due on March 31st, or on April 8th? (The message at the top of the forum seems to indicate March 31st, but the itch.io site says April 8th.)

I think they're giving extra time to get it into Itch.io if you wish to.

{Frankly, I don't think there's a problem if you take an extra week to polish a piece before posting as 'completed'}.
