We are looking for a Narrative Designer to join our Gods Unchained team.
Storytelling is at the emotional heart of why many players play games. Without a story, it’s just a picture on a card. With a story, it’s a moment in time. Capturing the players’ imaginations and surprising and delighting them with a story told through and around our cards is an essential part of how we grow Gods Unchained and meet new audiences.
In addition, having a narrative frame helps create better and more-consistent art descriptions and better and more-compelling characters and settings. Those pieces of art depicting characters and locations directly lead to improved marketing results. (The champions-driven ads almost always outperformed the gods-driven ones.) The story makes the scaffolding for the marketing of the game - the story created for Mortal Judgment infuses everything we do for that set’s release (in-game theming, marketing, etc.).
Working closely with our Games Director and Games Designer, you will create and own the story. Our game world allows for a wide array of levels -- from the mundane to the divine, from the personal to the global - which many game properties do not.
As a Narrative Designer, your work will directly translate into objects and cards sold in our game, providing you with high design ownership and creativity levels.
Here’s how you’ll contribute:
Create characters, setting, plot, and stories for our gameCreate art descriptions to bring your stories to life in our cardsCreate compelling storiesGrow the lore of Gods Unchained with new releasesContribute to the overall game design: card design, metagame concerns, marketplace development of lore-based items for saleWork closely with marketing to drive engagement and interest of Gods Unchained
