Welcome to the 2020 Winter VN Jam! A game jam for visual novel and story-focused developers.

I was inspired by the visual novel, An Otaku's Guide to Santa's Reindeer. I really enjoyed playing the demo of it, and realised that it would be a lot of fun to see more VNs that focus on the winter season. This is what this game jam is all about.

This jam's theme is: Winter. You can interpret that how you like.

Whether it's a story about a character making a living gingerbread person, or an adaptation of The Snow Queen, your winter tales are welcome here.

Submission Guidelines:

  • You can use the jam to complete a project you've already begun working on, so long as it fits with the jam's theme of winter.
  • The game submission must be a visual novel or be story-focused.
  • There are no "winners." Anyone who reaches their goal during the jam has completed it.
  • This jam will not accept submissions that depict sex or gore.
  • Collaborations and solo projects welcome.
  • Submitting demos and works-in-progress are fine!

So have fun, gain experience, and go make a game!
