You'll be given an established setting, characters, and story outline created to match the gameplay and be asked to write the scenes themselves and additional dialogue and character interactions to supplement the main story. The story outline is flexible to the extent that it does not compromise the planned gameplay or core themes.
The story contains serious themes and is meant for adults, but it is still a light hearted game. Dialogue will range from serious and heartfelt to humorous and endearing. The vast majority of the writing will be dialogue, and will include branches within a dialogue. An ideal candidate can display experience with writing both dramatic and comedic pieces. Experience on shipped dialogue driven games and with branching dialogue is preferred.
The word count for the project is expected to be in the 20,000 - 40,000 word range. The position is on a contract basis.
