Welcome to the 2022 Winter Visual Novel Jam! This is a game jam for visual novel and story-focused developers.

Continuing from last year's Winter VN Jam hosted by Katy133, Arimia from Crystal Game Works and Maricu have (with permission) taken the reigns.

This jam's theme is: Winter.

You can interpret this theme how you like. There are no rankings, no judges, just have fun!

No matter if your story is about cozy times in front of a fireplace, spending time with loved ones over winter holidays, or adapting classic winter-themed tales, all 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 video game submission must be a visual novel or be story-focused.
  • There's no official judging. Anyone who reaches their goal during the jam has completed it.
  • This jam will not accept submissions that depict sex or gore. Please also do not submit anything hateful or bigotted.
  • Collaborations and solo projects welcome.
  • Submitting demos and works-in-progress are fine!

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