Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Mar 012017

You’ve probably heard of NaNoWriMo, the National Novel Writing Month where people challenge themselves to write 50,000 words in November, but have you heard of NaNoRenO?

NaNoRenO is basically NaNoWriMo for visual novels. It stands for……. well, it sounds a lot like “NaNoWriMo,” and the “Ren” refers to the visual novel software Ren’py. (And Ren’py comes from “Ren’ai,” a term sometimes used for Japanese dating sims.)

During NaNoRenO, developers challenge themselves to write an entire visual novel in the month of March. Many people work in groups so they can complete the entire visual novel. Consider it a cross between NaNoWriMo and a game jam.

I won’t be participating in NaNoRenO 2017 since I’m still working on projects like Ascendant Hearts (which just needs a little more help to reach its Kickstarter goal), but I might try it next year.

On the other hand, maybe I’ll use the concurrent IntRenAiMo (International Ren’ai Month) to finish up my writing for my current visual novel projects this March!

So, who here is participating in NaNoRenO or IntRenAiMo?
