SuNoFES is short for the Summer Novel Festival, an online game jam focused on adventure, interactive fiction, role-playing game, and visual novels. Starts July 1st, ends August 31st, annually. Feel free to start working before the festival begins. No one is required to start their work from scratch unless they want to. If you have any unfinished projects in mind, you're invited to use this festival for completing it. SuNoFES has no judging or prizes - the only rewards are those that come from the challenge and camaraderie with others.

  • Takes place during July and August.
  • Project must be a new game and have not been published before.
  • Adaptations and sequels are okay.
  • Releasing a demo is fine.
  • Polished works are encouraged. Free from bugs and glitches.
  • You can work in teams or by yourself.
  • There are no "winners." Anyone who reaches their goal during the festival has completed SuNoFES, though it is encouraged to submit a game.

If you want to be more organized, try out the design document:
Have fun and enjoy the rest of the summer!
Feel free to tweet your development progress at #SuNoFes!

If you miss this year's festival, there's next year.
