Herro :)

Long story short, I'm looking for a writer to collaborate with on building the narrative for a small storytelling/adventure game. For some reason it's pretty difficult to find people to work with. I have a particular idea that I want to pursue, it's something of a case study/critique of solitude/aloneness and modern social perceptions of that. I just suck at building a functioning narrative out of it, otherwise I'd be doing it myself (like everything else...).

Disclaimer: I currently work as a Technical Artist at a well regarded large AAA studio and I want to make my own games in my spare time. Basically I know what I'm doing - what it takes to actually make and finish games.

Anyway, if that sounds like something you'd be interested in working with me on, feel free to get in touch:

I always enjoy stuff on psychology and the effect of things on a human mind. Needless to say, your project has peaked my interest :) I can't credit myself with being an amazing author of the highest of caliber, but I'd like to think of myself as a pretty decent story writer. If you'd like help then I'd be willing to lend as much as I can to your project!

Quick bump to reiterate that I'm still on the hunt for a talented narrative writer to work with.

To add a little more info to the original post that you wouldn't find without a little digging:

I'm currently working on this project at Creative Assembly as a Technical Artist - a quite senior position in an art department of around 30 people:

Last year I also got invited to be a juror for the BAFTA GAME videogames award for Artistic Achievement - the same guys who do the famous film awards:

Please don't take this as an ego-boosting attempt, I just figure that a lot of people out there would be happier to go out on a limb for someone they know has been around the block. So please get in touch :| I have strong ideas for the general direction I want this game to take, but writing is not something I'm strong at. Code, art, art direction, art optimisation, design ... all passable. Writing, less so. Hoping to hear from you dudes soon :D contact details in the original post, as I said strong preference for email as it's the most reliable way to contact me. Peace dudes

1) The guy asked YOU to contact HIM
2) He did say which company he works for
3) You can also find it in his resume on his website

I could take this offer up as I'm doing my GSCE English and GCSE Phycology and  art GCSE (not that this is relevant) this year (I have already started my psychology and I've been doing English since I've been at school from age 4 obviously) however my grammar isn't perfect since I have slight dyslexia.
I reckon my self to be a very creative person and I'm always creating story's in my head and alternate universes in my head if you gave me a bit of information on the setting I could work on something in the remainder of my summer break (about 3 weeks) and then email it to you then.
 If it 'aint your cuppa tea feel free to leave it but if it is do what you want with it.
