Many thanks to everyone who participated or show support in the past years!


Summer Novel Festival 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. (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. [Adult content is not allowed]
Feel free to tweet your development progress at #sunofes
"Good Luck" jam page

Feel free to ask questions regarding to SuNoFes or extras. Please tag your work if it's SuNoFes related

5th Anniversary?
That would be on July 9th where first SuNoFes began.
SuNoFes isn't original Visual Novel Festival. There was a time before and after NaNoRenO, small community formed an event called Teacup VN Festival.
But that was long, long time ago. And the rules aren't similar and teacup festival layout was coordinated through days of release if I recall correctly.

How was your vacation?
Here's my post with photos and minor status update: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=19427&p=513480#p513480

I could be reached through the Lemma Soft Forums. I don't have any social media/ network account.

I would like to host a non-game jam which is shorter than a month for next year.
I'll have a thread prepared at Creator Discussion in December 2019.
I haven't forgot about SuNoFes, I'll try to continue.

I'm going to try my hardest to use SuNoFes to finish the game I've been making super slow progress on over the last few years! I'm also really excited to see what everyone else creates :)
