Get a job: Telltale is hiring an interactive story designer

August 15, 2013 | By Kris Ligman

The Gamasutra Job Board is the most diverse, active and established board of its kind for the video game industry!

Here is just one of the many, many positions being advertised right now.

Interactive Story Designer, Telltale Games

Location: San Rafael, CA

On a given title, the interactive designer will be responsible for generation of core gameplay concepts and mechanics in partnership with the lead writer, and then evangelizing this vision to the greater team. The designer must also be effective at maintaining that vision throughout production.

The ideal candidate understands how traditional design skills apply in a non-traditional, narrative-based game. How do players express themselves within a narrative, and how does that expression become a game?

Creative writing skills and understanding of story are more important than they would be for most developers, and ability to multi-task is critical.

  • Develop fresh, innovative storytelling games, consistent with company game philosophy and vision
  • Collaborate with lead writer on story creation and interactive dialog design
  • Represent and evangelize the player-side of an interactive narrative
  • Work with artists and engineers to design and implement other interactive gameplay features

Interested? Apply now.
