Deck Nine Games is hiring a Staff Writer to join our narrative team on an unannounced adventure game. We’re looking for a writer whose love of story is animated by compassion and curiosity, someone who loves games but draws influence from a broad swathe of narrative media, someone with a desire to expand the boundaries of what sorts of stories games tell, and what sorts of characters we tell them about. You should fall in love with the characters you write, understand the purpose of every word choice you make, and light up at the chance to talk with your fellow writers about your work and theirs. This is a highly collaborative position; the right fit will be sensitive, thoughtful, and an absolute pro at giving and receiving feedback.
If that sounds like you, here’s what you can look forward to at Deck Nine: a full-time position—either on site at our offices in beautiful Westminster, Colorado or remote—with benefits, competitive pay, and an opportunity to work with our incredible team to help shape the identity of a super dope project. We’re a diverse team of bonkers talented writers, and you’re going to be spending a lot of time hanging out with us, brainstorming, breaking story, developing characters, and solving story problems collaboratively. When you’re not doing that, you’ll be helping to write the game script with our proprietary toolset, which allows us holistic influence over all aspects of the development process, including dialogue, gameplay design, branching logic, art, and cinematics.
We’re big on keeping our team as diverse as possible, so writers of color, disabled writers, queer writers, and writers of marginalized genders are ESPECIALLY encouraged to apply!
