Narrative Designer

Guildford, UK, Permanent

Ref: DES1701004

We’re after some narrative game designers to join the team at Supermassive Games. You’ll need a superb understanding of story and the intersection of it with gameplay.

We're looking to hire great storytellers with the ability to:

    • Work alongside the Game Director and game design team to define, from a pre-determined story brief and within clear design constraints, how the story is told moment-to-moment within a specific game, documenting this in our proprietary tools
    • Draft any and all on-screen text and make clear the character/narrative intention(s) with scriptwriter direction – but please be aware this is not a scriptwriting role
    • Provide narrative support through research (real-world events, locations and people) to inform, support and enhance game narrative(s)
    • Work together with a group of senior staff in defining high-level content and briefs for stories and characters
    • Work with external scriptwriters in the development of a final and compelling screenplay

    The right candidate will have:

    • A passion for narrative and the ability to interweave story and meaningful play experiences
    • A logical approach and solid problem solving skills
    • The desire, the skills and knowledge to push for, and recognize, great storytelling in our medium

    You also need to be:

    • Flexible and open-minded
    • Determined and self-motivated
    • Prepared to rise to a challenge
    • Always striving for quality
    • Creative and innovative

    Preference will be given to candidates that are able to demonstrate success in using a collaborative approach to game making, screenwriting, or story development to realize the best possible story and/or game play experiences.
