Who are Narrative Writers at Liquid Swords?
As a Narrative Writer, you are the spinner of yarns and fabricator of unforgettable worlds filled with mystery, character, and fascinating journeys to lose yourself in.
More than merely dialogue – it is about creating a universe that transcends mechanics to excite and inspire.
Your role in the bigger picture
As a Narrative Writer, you are the tip of the narrative spear.
You are a creative force who can imagine the unimaginable and can articulate the journey. Commanding the seas of uncertainty, you break down ambiguity into concepts and tales, which galvanize the team in finding the fun and revealing the story.
Gifted in dialogue and practiced in the principles of storytelling, you are the impetus for impassioned stories with a commitment to excellence in writing, lore, voice-over and performance.
Is this You?
✓ A champion of characters’ motivations, but your decisions respect the link between story-telling and gameplay, putting player experience first.
✓ You draw on a range of storytelling tools and techniques to bring emotional meaning to the story, its characters and the events that move the audience.
✓ Compelling dialogue and economic voiceovers are effortless as you draft gripping lore and legend. Your work is rich and detailed, yet you understand how to be concise.
✓ A person that values every discipline and are here to help others’ crafts excel in Narrative. You level up all teams with your ideas and feedback.
✓ Writing great stories knows no bounds; from the highest conceptual level to the lowest detail level, you skillfully flow from blank pages to indelible moments.
✓ Proven in branching narratives, you understand the challenges of bringing bold, emergent, open-world stories to life and you are convinced games can do it better.
✓ Your portfolio demonstrates a clear knack for maneuvering traditional narrative techniques through technical narrative game systems.
The request for samples or a portfolio is meant to help us understand your ability to interpret high-level themes and manifest them through rules or writing. To facilitate, links to game samples and collaborative works should indicate your contributions.
