Nanolife is a visual novel we re-released in May 2020. It was originally made for NanoRenO 2012 and can be downloaded here:


While a thunderstorm rages outside, a boy excitedly boots up a new MMORPG for the first time. After fiddling around with the character creator for a while he’s finally ready to play with his new character. However, just as he’s about to press the submit button, lightning strikes!

As a result of the lightning strike the power goes out, and he’s forced to sit and wait in frustration. What he doesn’t realize is that his character has already begun playing without him…


Nanolife has three routes with one ending each, and contains around 20.000 words. There are unlockable choices to keep the common route fresh. All art is done in 1920×1080 with pre-scaled lower resolution versions being used on-the-fly for low-end devices. There are some small but cute animations to be found. All art is custom-made. Nanolife is made with NVList.
