The narrative team of a studio is involved in almost all aspects of the game development. They design the narrative experience, build narrative systems, create lore and other content needed for worldbuilding, and more. Our narrative designers and writers collaborate and co-create with all our other teams, empowering them to tell stories with the tools of their specific disciplines. That being said, the narrative team at Sharkmob works especially close with the departments that handle level design, environment art, game design, cinematics, and UI/UX. Sometimes they drive the process, sometimes they contextualize content created by the other teams.
We look for candidates to join our narrative team who are strong collaborators and communicators, but also self-driven and organized enough to be autonomous. They should have experience in fields like storytelling, narrative systems, and in-game implementation of narrative design. They should also be comfortable with Unreal Engine 5, as well as using writing software like Final Draft and collaborative digital platforms like Miro.
