**This position has been closed.**

Aurorian Studios is seeking a writer to supplement our head writer's work. This is largely due to the volume of scenes and written dialogue we are producing for One Lonely Outpost.

We are an extremely passionate team of indie devs located around the world who have been fortunate enough to secure limited funding, and now we're seeking additional members to round out the team!

Work is part-time or full-time equivalent (depending on rates, productivity, etc) with regular monthly payments. Position is fully remote.


  • Passionate about One Lonely Outpost
  • Native or effectively native english speaker and writer.
  • Strong portfolio of prior written work, with an emphasis on high effective character building that is succinct, primarily achieved through conversation and dialogue.
  • Highly receptive to constructive criticism and willingness to work to match the head writer's style.
  • Team player with ability to take direction while also contributing creativity appropriately.
  • Ability to learn new software as needed for our production pipeline, or prior ChatMapper experience


  • Experience writing for narrative-driven video games of any kind (Visual Novels, Choose-your-own-adventure, JRPGs, etc.)
  • Big scifi reader
  • Experience with Screenwriting and/or Playwriting
  • LUA Scripting (don't expect to see this one, but can't hurt to ask?)

Update: Brad Petry, the Project Lead behind One Lonely Outpost, will be hosting an AMA in the Work With Indies Discord on Thursday, May 27th at 12PM PT / 3PM ET. Join us for a conversation about the advantages of growing your farm on an alien planet, if we can pet the robo-cow, and their three open job positions.

About One Lonely Outpost:

Start a farming colony and grow it into a vibrant community. Choose from traditional animals and natural produce or opt for robo-cows and gene-spliced crops. You can take a break from farming by mining, socializing with colonists, finding a love interest, exploring alien ruins, and so much more!

We currently hiring programmers, technical artists, and a writer. You can view (and share) all of our openings here.
