Improbable Games Canada is searching for a talented writer to contribute to our unannounced MMORPG!

We are driven by a shared passion for creating immersive, inclusive experiences, and we want these values to be reflected in how we define and develop the voices of our characters. Though the primary focus of our new Game Writer will be on creating compelling, concise character dialogue, there will be opportunities to contribute on a broader level to the narrative team depending on the successful candidate’s background and interests. So if you have a passion for bringing characters to life - we want to hear from you!

Areas of Impact
  • Assist in the creation and execution of our story with a focus on writing character dialogue (and other narrative elements as required).
  • Define and develop the voice of characters within the context of the larger IP.
  • Assist in the design and development of our narrative tools and pipelines. 
  • Own and drive specific areas of narrative content. 
  • Create and maintain all related documentation.
  • Provide meaningful, valid feedback to the Design and Narrative teams during play sessions.
  • Work with any freelancers/contractors to ensure character and story consistency.

We would like to hear from you
  • Professional experience in scriptwriting or relevant experience on 2-3 shipped titles
  • Understanding of narrative game design, stories, and dialogue and their impact to player experience
  • Portfolio / writing samples available

While we think the above experience could be important, we’re keen to hear from people that believe they have valuable experience to bring to the role. If you identify with the team and mission, but not all of our requirements, then please still apply!!
