Greenheart Games 💚 is looking for an experienced Lead Writer / Editor (full-time/paid/remote/anywhere) for our upcoming fantasy business simulation and humorous story-telling game, Tavern Keeper.
We need you!
We have spent years building a sophisticated business simulation game with interesting gameplay, a gorgeous look, a great narrative vertical slice and a kicker soundtrack but it will be YOU who will add the magic of storytelling to the full experience. Your writing will reach players around the world, your words will make people grin from ear to ear, will make them burst out laughing and will touch their heart. This is your chance to work on a unique and promising game.
Stories in Tavern Keeper!
We are aware of the harmful origins of some fantasy genre tropes and strive to do our part to evolve the genre.
Tavern Keeper puts players in charge of operating a tavern in a fun and quirky fantasy world and it’s this microcosm of a tavern in which we tell our stories. Stories in Tavern Keeper are not the traditional RPG adventures full of heroes, wars and quests. Instead, our approach is to play on fantasy tropes and present the player with anachronistic modern topics in light-hearted interactive encounters.
This serves to structure and guide the gameplay as well as punctuate it with fun moments that humanize the world while (occasionally) satirizing our own.
Players experience stories in the game by interacting with characters in the tavern as demonstrated in the video below:
We need someone who can excel at writing these stories 💚. If this sounds like it could be you, check out details below and please consider applying!

We are Greenheart Games, a small indie team working remotely from all over the world. We value the player’s time and intelligence and believe that games need to be more than thinly-disguised slot machines optimized solely to generate profit. We made Game Dev Tycoon and you might have heard about our piracy experiment when it went viral. Our newest project is Tavern Keeper, a fantasy tavern simulator that aims to combine tycoon/sim/management gameplay with a fun and funny setting.
About Tavern Keeper
A good tavern is the heart and soul of a community - a place for drama and intrigue, shoddy deals and outrageous meals. A place for peasants to relax, travellers to rest and heroes to plan their next daring adventure. But what of the unsung heroes of it all - the tavern keepers?
In Tavern Keeper you manage a tavern, building, bartering, cooking and cleaning your way to success in a humorous fantasy world. Starting out with a shell of a tavern in the backwaters of the kingdom, you build rooms, place items, stock the larder and hire staff to satisfy the demands of the oddball locals and misfit heroes that stumble through your door. Run your business well and you’ll progress to larger taverns with more demanding patrons where you’ll need to expand your offerings to include new meals, drinks, rooms and services.
