NaNoRenO: Visual Novel Game Jam

NaNoRenO is a online game jam in which developers are challenged to make a visual novel from scratch. It runs from the start of March 1st to the end of March 31st, and has been run every year since 2005. NaNoRenO has no judging or prizes - the only rewards are those that come from the challenge and camaraderie with others.

NaNoRenO has always been organized by the English-language visual novel development community, especially the members of the Lemma Soft Forums. This site serves as a hub to help find their many efforts.
