Protodroid DeLTA is looking for a freelance/contract Script Writer for a 3D action-platformer! You will be responsible for refining, editing, or in many cases rewriting parts of the script (based on an existing storyline) to ensure each conversation is engaging, well-paced, and well-timed for an action game.

The Script Writer will work closely with the Lead Developer to craft a script that will have players falling in love with each of the game’s vibrant characters. The game will be fully voice acted and you can listen to these samples which bring to life each character:


  • Writing and editing the game’s dialogue (currently ~8000 words)
  • Keeping the script to within target word count limits
  • Creating and maintaining line-by-line VO scripts


  • A strong portfolio showcasing recent personal or professional script writing work
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Comfortable working in Google Suite collaborative tools (Docs, Sheets)
  • Self-directed and receptive to critique and feedback


  • Professional experience in writing for commercial video games, with at least one title shipped in a narrative or writing role
