Title: Game Content Contract Writer
Date Posted: 2017-05-11
Location: Mountain View, CA
Pixelberry is a studio in Mountain View, CA dedicated to creating games with heart. Many members of our team have worked together in the mobile space for over a decade. We're 5 for 5 in developing Top 100 games that blend addictive design with compelling narrative gameplay.

We are looking for writers to work on contract, delivering content for our hit mobile game "Choices: Stories You Play." The content will come in the form of scripts that include dialogue, descriptions of action, and branching narratives based on player choices. Payment will come on delivery of chapters (approximately 5000 words each) with bonuses upon hitting certain milestones. Pay rate is competitive.


You will be working with an editor to deliver high-quality interactive narrative content for the game "Choices: Stories You Play" in the form of game scripts. You'll be provided with some general training and samples of our formatting, as well as a detailed outline for the content you'll be writing. You'll receive feedback on each chapter you complete and revise as necessary, with the expectation of one round of revisions. You'll also keep track of story elements like characters and locations and write short descriptions for how you envision them for us to give to our art team.


Our ideal candidate creates stories with interesting characters and compelling narratives, is able to follow the established style and tone of our games, and can write from a variety of perspectives. Additionally, candidates should be able to accept and incorporate feedback, adapt writing to meet requirements, and consistently meet deadlines. Excellent copywriting and editing skills are a must.

We are only interested in writers who have at least one professional writing credit. This can be a published book, a purchased screenplay, work on a released video game, etc.

This is an external contractor position, not full-time employment. The work will be done remotely, off-site.


- Major in English, specifically creative writing.
- Knowledge about and passion for the gaming industry, specifically the mobile gaming space.
- Understanding of current trends and pop culture.


- A cover letter, indicating why you're interested in the position. In this letter, please state the top three genres you would be interested in writing for Choices; we strongly encourage you to play a few chapters of Choices to get a feel for the kind of stories we tell.
- A current resume, highlighting writing and educational experience.
- A writing sample (short story, script, or game writing). We prefer fictional samples of writing that showcase friendship and romance. If you have more than one applicable sample, you can send more than one.
- Please put your resume and writing sample into the body of an email (no attachments) with the subject line 'Choices External Writer - [Your Name]'. Candidates will not be considered without a writing sample. Submit materials to Andrew at the email address below.
