Have you always wanted to create a visual novel but never actually given it a shot? If so, then it may be worth looking into TyranoBuilder – a visual novel creation engine available on Steam. Right now is a great time to test the waters, too, as Nyu Media just announced an upcoming game jam with prizes.
The TyranoBuilder Summer Game Jam will be a contest to see who can create the best visual novel based off a certain (still to be announced) theme. The contest will begin on Monday, August 17 which is also when more details will be revealed.
For now, we know that there will be $800 in prizes up for grabs. This definitely provides good incentive to try your hand at creating a new visual novel!
