SuNoFes2018 [July-August]

#1 Post by Alte » Sun Jul 01, 2018 2:31 am


SuNoFes is an online game jam focused on adventure, interactive fiction, role-playing game, and visual novels. (Story-based games) Starts July 1st, ends August 31st, annually.

What does SuNoFes stand for?
Don't worry about it. (It's Summer Novel Festival though it's not exactly Summer around the world)

Where do I submit a project?
It's hosted on so it requires having an account from there. If you're already registered an account, return to the jam page then click on the "Join jam" button- you can submit a game as well.

Can I start my project now?
Sure! If you have any unfinished projects in mind, you're invited to use this festival for completing it.

Any rules?
  • Takes place during July and August.
  • Completing unfinished projects are welcomed
  • Releasing a demo is fine.
  • Polished works are encouraged.
  • There are no "winners." Anyone who reaches their goal during the festival has completed SuNoFES, though it is encouraged to submit a game.

After giving some thought, I removed R+18 restriction for this year's SuNoFes. However I won't be able to focus as a game jam host, due to preparation for international flight trip to Europe (somewhere, a canal) with a few family members to visit distant relatives. Flight starts in early August. (Airline tickets has been booked since March) If anyone is interested of being host/admin for SuNoFes2018, I'll add you as Contributors. ( account required) Edit: I'll manage

Thank you for your patience and good luck on your project development.

I'm really excited to be participating as well! Alte, if you need any help as a host I would be happy to help in any way I can (I know you said you'd manage but feel free to reach out if things get too crazy!!)

Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is working on for this too :D

sasquatchii, are you fine with helping out as a host for SuNoFes18? As a host- your username is shown on the jam's page and allowed to check on submissions. I won't have access to my account for the first half of August due to vacation period.

Edit: I removed "Project must be a new game and have not been published before" from rules the for simplicity.
