NaNoReno 2019 General Recruitment Thread

#1 Post by fmjaye » Sun Feb 10, 2019 2:30 am

I've been wondering when someone was going to make a recruitment thread for a while so I guess it's time to make it myself! ╭( ・ㅂ・)و ̑̑ I'm just going to use the same template from the past few years, I hope that's okay. Thanks to Deji for the original!


❋ So you want to participate in NaNoRenO 2015 2019? ❋

Unless you're working solo, you probably need a group! Or maybe you already have a group but could use more members!
Go ahead and post your or your group's information so people can contact you!

➤ A person looking for a group

Please list your skills and the things you're willing to contribute with, and if you have any preferences!

Example 1:
I'm an artist!
I can contribute character designs, character sprites and a few CGs (full screen, cut-ins, or chibis, not more than 4 full screen CGs).
I can't do backgrounds or GUI.
I'd like to work on a romance GxB game if possible! No BxB, no nudity, no abuse or violence, please :'3
I can communicate via forum Private Messages!
Example 2:
I'm a programer.
I'm good at basic coding, along with coding custom GUI and some ATL elements (within reason).
I'm looking to work on any kind of project, I'm not picky!
I'm okay with communicating through e-mail or Skype chat.

➤ A group looking for more members

Please list the basic, spoiler-free characteristics, tags/warnings and mood of the idea you have, what kind of people are you looking for and how you plan to communicate!

Example 1:
Our group is working on a non-romantic slice of life comedy with magical elements set in japanese high school!
We have a programer, writer and a musician, but we *really* need an artist!
The story will have 3 characters and as many CGs as the artist can cram in during March.
We have a Skype chat group set up for meetings, so Skype availability would be great (don't worry, no voice chat!)
Example 2:
We're working on a BxG bittersweet story about hard choices in life and moving on from the past. There will be mentions of abuse.
We're specifically looking for a Background artist.
If you can design a custom GUI or contribute with some music, that'd be great!
We plan to work using Trello.

* If you're a solo person with an idea you'd like people to help you with, you're better posting as a group =)

Happy NaNo-ing! :'D


And here's my entry~

Hi! My name is Jaye, and I'm an artist. I'd like to do sprites or CGs this year.
My preference is to work on something strange (surreal/horror) or BL... or both. :v
The best place to find my art is prolly @fakemagicjaye on tumblr.

I'm really excited for this~ ✧٩(。•ㅅ•。)و✧ Again, happy Nano-ing!!

Hey, folks! Our group are working on a slice-of-life comedy story with magical elements staring a layabout high schooler who wishes for a life of leisure. We currently have a writer and a sprite artist, but we are in need of a background artist, a CG artist, a musician, and a programmer. If you fit these credentials and would like to help out, we would love to have you over at our Discord channel!

We hope to see you there!

I'm an artist that can do sprites, designs, & cg, I've never attempted bgs or gui but willing to try. I usually have a painted style but if needed I can use linearts instead, it just might take longer. I can't work on anything 18+ or draw muscular/ mecha/ gory material, best at cute girls mostly. Personally I would love to help out on a GxG game or any really, you can contact me on here via PM!
My work likes to schedule me on weekday nights and weekend day shifts but I'll try to be as responsive as I can!

Edit; thank you guys! I was able to find a group :D

Whats up dudes. I draw stuff and I'm looking to join a group for this year's nanoreno. This'll by my third year doing it, so I have an idea of what its like and how to manage my time (hopefuly). I do BG's and CG's when it comes to visual novels, though I can do sprites if absolutely necessary. Feel free to contact me if you're interested in my services.

Samples of my drawings can be found here:

Hi everyone! Sarchalen Team here! We're planning a new project for Nano this year that we think you're really going to enjoy! It's a fantasy action/character drama set in a frozen wasteland focused around a squad of skydiving adventurers.

The game will be developed under our studio, Sarchalen, and will be our 3rd VN project and our second Nanoreno. We are three experienced writers , A programmer, a composer, and a sprite artist. We're looking to add a CG artist, especially one looking to do a variety of different kinds of drawings, a GUI artist or programmer, or both :D , an editor, and anyone who feels they can add something special to this project!

The Concept:

Genre: Sci/Fantasy, Action, Character Drama

Setting: A snowy wasteland somewhere between steampunk and high fantasy. A world of magic with a dark theme.

Tallara had never set foot on the ground, until he enlisted in the Royal Spirelands Kingdom's Navy. Dispatched aboard the RSKN Airship Erebus, he trained with Flanker Section 33 as the team's newest Firefly, a specialized airborne fighter with powerful magic from The Spirelands. Below, on the continent of Illania, the Consecrated Army pushes back against the powerful Shuvur invaders. With their brutal, magic-wielding Ice Wraiths, the enemy has made significant advances into Illanian territory, devastating everything in their path. Week after week, Tallera is left behind, deemed unready for combat. But strange events begin to unfold aboard the Erebus and his luck takes a turn when he, and two other misfits, Laverna and Magnus, are called to duty under a mysterious new squad leader, a beautiful Illanian Striker named Iris. Together, the four of them will skydive from safety of the airship into the frozen world below on a special mission to end the war and reclaim their lost world.

30-40k words
1 main story with branching dialogues
Fully original art including sprites, backgrounds, GUI etc.

If you're interested in working with us on this project, send us a message on here or email us at We look forward to hearing from you! You can also come hang out with us on Discord

Group Found
Hi I'm Taylor Hart, I am a composer. I have been composing for a year and a half. I am best at ambient type stuff but I've been working hard to expand into different styles as well. I am willing to compose 4-5 tracks, maybe more but I can't promise more than that as I have school. I can also help brainstorm ideas too, if you need that as well, but I'm primarily wanting to compose.

I'm willing to work on any projects other than 18+ projects. So feel free to PM me.

I'm on discord as well: Taylor567#5147

My soundcloud:

I can also send you some of my other tracks if you are interested.

I'm a sprite/CG artist available for a project. This will be my second NaNoReno, so I'm open to try anything except fantasy VNs (not my forte). I can also do BGs, but in that case I'd rather not be the only artist on board.

Here's a link to a folder of some sample art, including work I did for last year's jam: ... gW4Ma?dl=0

Contact me via Twitter at @godsavant. Once the jam starts we can communicate via Discord.

I am an artist~~
I can do character design and sprites, and 2/3 CGs, though they will be in a chibi style like this.
I'm not too picky with genre, though I'd like to do horror maybe? My other bias is GxB where I am able to make at least 1 boy that isn't a bishounen type (i'm here to diversity otome bois)
Shoot me a PM and if we team up I can talk thru discord!

Working with sunlit-dreamer!

Hi all! This will be my 4th official nanoreno game. I've been playing around with this idea for years and I've already started the sprites for everyone (since there are too many to complete in one month)

Concept: Solar System Romance Game

Setting: Space, Planet Surface, Structures Fantasy Themed

Sypnosis: Once every millennium, Sun (MC) holds a huge gathering of the planetary spirits. While Sun has found herself down in the dumps recently -- a relationship with Terra (Earth) that is on the rocks and what she now considers a largely mundane, solitary existence -- she hopes that the get together will brighten things up. However, after Terra ruins her event with his reckless behavior, Sun decides it's time to play the field and chooses a new planetary partner.
Notes: Planets and Sun personalities will be based off of their real counterparts (Example: Mercury is dense, suffers from extreme hot and cold temperatures, has the most craters of any planet and has a weak magnetic field = has trouble relating and making friends, has mood swings, and covers up majority of body to hide scars.)

Writer/Programmer: familiar with Ren'py (I wouldn't mind having multiple people for this. My plan is to only do 1 maybe 2 routes along with a prologue and considering there are 9 planets, there's plenty of options.)
BG artist: I can likely do some of these but it would be nice to have help. I'd like some Palace interior spaces which I'm not the greatest at.
CG artist: I wasn't planning to have CGs considering the workload but if anyone's interested in doing one per route, that would be nice.

Who I'm looking for: I'm looking for partners, not just resource help if you understand what I mean. The more experience you have with nanoreno and visual novels, the better. This is just because I hate leaving projects unfinished and this is supposed to be a fun and short VN. Also, social media experience and communication is a huge plus. I'm just... not the best at marketing >.>' Send me a message if you're interested.

Greetings, this is Sunlit once again throwing my towel into the ring. This will be my 5th time participating, if only so I don't forget how to code.

I'm mainly a writer with a little experience from coding the last 4 nanos I've been in.

Depending on who I team up with, I'll be writing either a horror as I tend to do or an otome. Whether it'll be fluffy or not will depend on who I group with since I wish to discuss the nano while there's still time before it begins.

We're going with a horror otome.

Just send me a pm here on lemmasoft, and I'll provide my Discord.

Team so far:

Writer/Coder: Sunlit-Dreamer

Sprite/CG Artist: Fungii

GUI Artist: Camy

As a reminder to everyone: Please edit your post as you gain members of your team to avoid the situation where you would have to turn others down.
