Hi! I am creating an isometric point and click open world rpg based in the world of H.P. Lovecraft.
The game wil focus on exploration, player choices and plenty of non linear dialogue with richly defined characters.

Here's a teaser trailer for the game:

As the main game mechanics are being refined i need someone to help me write dialogue and text for the game. I am a single indipendent game maker but i am willing to offer a payed job.

I am looking for creative writers with interesting ideas and a fondness for the weird. It is required to have an understanding of the Lovecraft Fiction and themes. The tones for the game will mainly be: Weird/Surreal, Pulp, Cosmic Horror. Dialogues will be shown like in JRPGS with medium to short blocks of text and there will be a maximum of 5 player lines of choices for branching (with freedom of recursion).

For evaluation i need two examples of your choice of length;

One written dialogue with a random character talking about the city rumors. It would preferable to have it in flowchart form (you can make it with any software of choice, even hand drawn).

One written dialogue of the "game master" towards the player, describing a scene of your choice (relevant to the setting and themes)

You can contact me at

Just sent out an email! Eager to see if I'm the right fit for this project!
