Presented by Nochi Studios, building a game from the ground up can seem like an unachievable task, but anything is possible with the right tools at your disposal! This panel will give you a chance to learn about the many aspects of game development and even ask your burning questions to our diverse team!

Panel Overview

Anybody can develop a visual novel game if they know where to start: All it takes is an idea. Nochi will be sharing our story starting from the very beginning, discussing topics like ideation to validation, how we took that idea and made it into a full-fledged game, and the many roadblocks we faced along the way. Our goal is to fit the theme of indie gaming to encourage people to create something from their ideas. Four of our team members (from various roles) will be present to give insight into the development process. This will also help demonstrate the many varying components and people who are vital to making a visual novel project possible.
