Hey there! Happy NaNo everyone~ Let's hope this year's will be a good one!

Our team is making a lighthearted, fantasy BxB game. It's about an agoraphobic wizard boy and his psychic cat who rescue an injured soldier, a soldier who is not exactly as he seems. It's intended to be a cute, heartfelt game about learning to face fears and manage anxiety one baby step at a time. And y'know, cute boys and talking cats.

We, as a team, currently consist of myself (writer), a programmer/designer and a composer. We are at present, 'artistless' and looking for a character artist to do 2 human sprites and one cat, and CG artist to do 2-4 CGs.

If any of that tickles your fancy, hit me up! Contact me on Lemma via PM or by emailing captainsecretfire(at) if you're interested.

Hello everyone! I'm a programmer looking to try my hand at making a visual novel.
I am somewhat good at coding, writing GUI elements and working on Android applications.
I'm looking to work on any kind of project, I'm not picky!
I'm okay with communicating through e-mail or through Skype, but prefer using Hangouts or Zoom.

Hello, I'm Maddy!

I'm a 2D/3D artist.
I have worked prior on 2 Game Jams (2017 and 2018 editions).
I usually draw characters in 2D, but I usually work with 3D backgrounds.
I'm also studying animal anatomy if it's necessary.
I'm willing to draw basically anything, except explicit porn or things alike, but I'm good with nudity in general.

I also know about video editing and I have worked with games/series/movies translations.

I usually work with discord, but the usual email it' fine too.

This is my first NaNoReno, so I really want to find a team to do this! :D

You can check some of my works in these sites (my deviantart gallery it's very old now however):

H e y ~

I am Chell. I'm mostly a scriptwriter / designer but am currently studying Python and Game Design through Codecademy and Coursera and had the experience of making a few games. I enjoy drawing but eh ( yea )
My field of expertise is geared towards RPG Maker but I can probably manage doing basic Ren'py customization which I am studying til Saturday ~ Oh and samples of games I created myself or using assets @
Speaking of games I do the eventual romhacking and I enjoy japanese games ( ... Wuw/videos REally ) so I am aware of otoge stuff and wouldnt be unable to try and translate it and pay a native spellchecker

My schedule is really conflictuous ( college and workk and generally a busy existence ;; ) but I think NanoReNo is a great excuse for me to get working on my VN projects and I wouldn't complain if the team wants to work on another month for NanoReNo 2019

So now the project alright - I ve wanted to create games to teach people stuff school doesn't for years now. Think banks, functionality ... The edutainment kinda VN but not so directly edutainment. Think Hakuouki for instance which has an encyclopedia on Japanese historical themes, it is educative after all ;; I intend to create other games but I think NanoReNo is a great start and I do not have a specific topic in mind but I have many fields of expertise and interests and whichever ideas the member(s) can think of are going to be considered (: For instance I began writing one VN which has a salarywoman as a MC and she has lessons on programming and stuff ; I am an edutainment admirer so it is going to be my approach and I am into otome games but considering ideas

I am ok with B x B or G x G or B x G as a player but politically speaking I'd rather not raise any flags on those matters seeing as I identify as "uninterested angry asexual" and am uneducated so writing developed romances would be difficult (but hints are completely ok ~ ) so the focus is not dating but story and minigames

Basically I am seeking people on similar wavelengths so to say who can create things I cannot - namely great art and music, or better programming. Ideas are great, from anyone.

Thanks for now ^ ^ *

Hi, I'm Kevin/Kuma, I'm a musician/composer.

I use Sunvox, Famitracker, and Audacity.

Here are some examples of some of my compositions.

I'm currently a college student and have a part-time job, but I have a good amount of free time to devote to a project. I have no real preference for the type of game I'd like to work on, especially since it might push me out of my comfort zone.

I'm willing to communicate via Discord, PM, and E-mail.

Edit: I've already joined a group. Apologies to people who sent me offers, however, I'd love to collaborate on projects in the future.

Edit: I've committed to a group for NaNoRenO! Thank you for the interest! You're welcome to still add me on Discord if you'd be interested in working together on future projects.

My name is Vextera, and I'm a professional 2D artist. I'm looking for a small-sized project.

I have a plot and concept for a punk rock romance VN that I'd be willing to consider offering for this project. I currently have no prior experience creating visual novels.

Art Strengths
  • Character Art and Visual Design (Main Interest)
  • Backgrounds (I have no interest in only doing background art.)
  • Full Illustrations
Here's an example of character art I've done recently for a project with similar visual requirements: ... 1_1280.png

Silly mock-screenshot for a fake Sailor Moon VN I made a while ago: ... 1_1280.png

This one has a background: ... 1_1280.png

Here's my online portfolio. It mostly features painted pieces, which may or may not be preferable for backgrounds.

Project Preferences
  • Preferred Genres: Fantasy, Dark Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Cyberpunk, Steampunk, Modern, Romance
    But honestly I'm open to intriguing concepts from other genres, too. Seriously, just hit me with them.
  • I'm fine with any gender romance pairing.
  • I'm open to Adult elements in the VN, but I'm not interested in a dedicated NSFW project.
  • Some sensitive topics are fine; if you know your project will include them, please ask. P:
  • Discord is my preferred method of communication. Vex#7689
  • E-mail: [AT]
  • Tumblr:
  • Twitter:
I'll do my best to check my PMs here, but any of the four methods above are distinctly more reliable means of contacting me.
Apologies, but Skype doesn't work for me and I can't use it. Thank you!

I'm in two Nanoreno teams now! Thanks for all of the offers!

Hi, I'm Mado! ^^

I'm an artist, a gamedev and a writer. I've always wanted to be a part of NaNoReNo, and now's my chance!

What can Mado do for you?

Since I make my games all by myself (apart from the music, as well as a few minor things), I can:
  • Draw sprites
  • Draw CGs
  • Design characters
  • Make GUI
  • Design logos
  • Write
  • Code
  • Proofread

You can get a good idea of what I'm capable of doing with the short game that I made for Maximum Monster Month - Party Favors!

If you just want to see my art, I have an art blog that I frequently update too, at:

What does Mado want to work on?

I'm pretty flexible with most projects! However, I'd be most comfortable with short-term projects made just for NaNoReNo.

In terms of themes, I'm okay with drawing/writing about most genres. My forte is sweet/cute themes, but I'll be just as happy to venture into horror/darker stories.

If your work has sensitive topics, please tell me what they are- I don't want to dive headfirst into a project that I can't handle properly.

As well as this, if your proposed project is NSFW, I will reject your recruitment offer.

When it comes to relationships (if there are any), I'll draw/write any combination of genders. I will prioritize GxG couples, though.

Interested in Mado's work?

You can contact me here:

  • Discord: (my preferred method of communication for ongoing projects) madocallie #2937

  • Email: (my preferred method of communication for starting projects/recruitment messages)

Yo. I'm Belgerum, a musician and game dev who's done a few game OST's, and was a part of the team behind Eternal Hour: Golden Hour. Because my taste in VN games is pretty varied, I want to make a game that's out of my comfort zone, but still manageable, and will teach me a bunch.

I'll be making a short Nukige game, centered around your stereotypical fantasy battle between a Heroine who wants to save the world and the Demon King. You play as the Demon King, who tries to defeat and enslave the heroine. The game will have somewhat dark themes.

The game will feature:
  • A single RPG-style "boss battle" with multiple phases.
  • 2-3 endings, determined by the outcome of the fight.
  • A unique 18+ CG for each ending.

I'm looking for an artist willing to draw fantasy stuff and adult content. I'm confident that I can make the whole game, but my own artwork is quite awful, and having a partner to help would be amazing. The workload would be pretty light, with the minimum amount being sprites and expressions for 1 character, 1 background, and 2 CG.

Anyone who wants to help or learn more can contact me through PM, Skype (belgerum09), or Discord (Belgerum#0886)

Edited: Joined a group, yay! Good luck to everyone with finding teammates!!

Hiya! I'm a 2D artist and I'm mainly interested in doing sprite art or CG art (not both).

I'd prefer:
  • small VN/game
  • a small handful of characters
  • a small handful of CGs

I like romance (any sort of gender is coo' with me), mystery, horror/gore, and comedy! But I basically like a lot of things, so don't worry too much about the genre.

Please DM me here on LSF or on twitter with a summary of what the story will be about, any existing art, and what jobs are filled so far in your group (or just you!). Thanks!! :D

Hello everyone!

Our project is an impressionistic horror game set in a lonely, surreal city. You, the MC, stumble inside a strange building you've never seen before -- a wax museum full of faceless exhibits. Two mysterious curators live in the museum, but for some reason, neither seems to know about the other. You have so many questions, and yet you're not sure if you want to hear the answers.

We're planning on including a lot of quirks, such as stats, shifting endings, MC's name remembered across playthroughs, and other fun elements!

We have:

-A pair of co-authors (myself and Fiogan, author of Beastie Watch)
-A programmer/GUI artist

We're looking for:

-An artist to do sprites (2 characters half-body -- one male, one non-binary, white and Levantine/Mediterranean respectively.)
-An artist to do CGs (2-4 CGs with simple bgs, probably 1 char max)
-A composer to create an eerie melodic ambience (~3 tracks)

We use Discord to communicate! If you're interested, please PM here on Lemma, or message me on Discord at Dovah#2203.

Edit: Got a team together!

➤ A programmer looking for a project

Hey all, I'm Fugi. I'm a programmer who's very experienced in Python (and other languages). I haven't used Ren'py or other frameworks before, but can learn them quickly if you tell me which you'd like to use! I expect I should be able to build anything you wish, so long as it doesn't require me to do anything artistic :P

I'm down to work on any sort of project, and can communicate over any medium though Discord would be preferable. Feel free to contact me via PM or Fugi#4597 on Discord!

Hi all,

I'm an artist looking to help with any project for NaNoReno 2018. Preferably a smaller one that will be finished by the deadline.

I can work with both pixels and paint, though I can't do vector graphics. Still figuring those out. Here's a mix of my pixel work and digital sketches, to give an idea of my style.

I can contribute character designs, sprites, CGs, and backgrounds if you can tell me the maximum canvas dimensions for each asset. I'm not really picky about subject matter, but if your cast is mostly high-school girls or anthro characters, I'm not the best at drawing those.

If you think I might be good fit, send me a PM over Twitter (@godsavant) and let's chat.


EDIT: Joined a group for this year. Good luck to everyone else.

I am a writer interested in a short, FREE project. My main goal is to get experience working with a VN with the hopes that I will publish my own in the future. I am a Master's student who has never published anything, but I have written a few different things, notably a 90,000-word fiction novel (that will remain unpublished). Other than writing, I can bring a lot of enthusiasm and passion.

I'm interested in:
- A short project that can be completed within a few months at most.
- A free project.
- Any genre, although I don't have much experience writing BxB
- I am comfortable writing consensual adult (18+) scenes.
- Writing 3000-6500 words a week, although I could write more come crunch time.

If you're interested in adding me to your team or if you just want to look at some writing samples, please feel free to send me a PM.
