Welcome to the first Battle Action Fantasy Visual Novel Jam, a game jam for combining tropes you see in battle shounen & seinen stories with visual novels and story-driven games.
Some examples include most JRPGs, Fate/Stay Night, and more. Your game may be a more comedic take or something darker and more sinister. The ultimate answer on if your story will fit this jam: would it make sense to be serialized in Shounen Jump?
This jam is not judged or ranked. You make a shounen/seinen-esque game and you're a winner. We do encourage submissions to be tagged as #Battle Action Fantasy, a new tag for shounen-esque games that's a derivative of バトル・アクション (battle action), a popular way to categorize shounen works in Japan. You can read more about this new tag here.
Have fun and make games that feel like they would go right in an issue of Shounen Jump!
This jam is ran by Arimia from Crystal Game Works, 4noki and Pumpkin Spike. The logo is by Nacchi.
