    Hi,

    quest writer wanted for: a Sci-Fi themed first-person adventure game (work-in-progress videos and screenshots see below).
    Required: writing creative new quests/riddles/tasks/missions for it. The challenge lies in creating new technology/science and interesting ways to interact with it. e.g. new defence systems and ways to overcome them. Out of the question is any copied idea from other books, movies, games and so on.

    The genreal requirement is that the ideas are new, make sense, use existing game mechanics and assets, and are in the format to be implemented in the game. To give writers and overview of what is available and required, I prepared this document:

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/10YMM4JSJIiP8Hq8hYv7uFE-8KAtUK_riPvIqKABOdQs/edit?usp=sharing

    In there are also example quests showing the format in which you write for such a game, which is not like a script for a movie. Please take care that you can not tell the player what to do, but instead have to consider all the things he might do in any order. Also I dont have voice-recording, so the dialogues or text-communication should stick to a minumum.

    If you are interested, message me.

    Videos of the work in progress:
    game mechanic: locked car, requires car key to unlock, start of car: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1av7NGp7YySS21MZ_st4oQDhMzKWLXvkh
    game mechanic: using the sidewalk-tranport platform: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1XXabFtxuLEm-f3joJxWdARyQ208_OMZVMF

    Hi! I'm an award-winning science fiction writer with games-writing experience. I'm available to work right now and I'd love to hear more about your project. (I tried the 'start a conversation' button, which I thought might be the same as PMing you, but didn't get a response so maybe I misunderstood it). In the past I've written missions, character backgrounds, dialogue etc for computer games and face to face role-playing games - if this sounds like what you need, let's talk!

    Done. I think. I am new to Discord, so I hope I've done this correctly.
