Job description

At Invoke, our mission is to Have Fun Building Great Games. 

We believe the best games come from people who love what they do, in an environment that values them and their ideas. That’s why we make games that our younger selves used to dream about. And we make sure that everyone has the opportunity to contribute to our collective success. Being part of Wizards of the Coast, we get to contribute to a collection of games that have inspired players and developers for decades. 

At Invoke, you get to play your part as a valued member of an open and dedicated team within a magical world! 

Job Description

What You'll Do 

  • Write with great characterization as a goal, craft engaging scenes and grounded conversations, and work on the game’s narrative foundations including Confluence documentation and barks to support game verbs

  • Be a dynamic participant in narrative discussions and be autonomous once the objectives and goals are defined 

  • Work and share your knowledge with the Narrative Director while maintaining an open mind regarding feedback 

  • Work alongside other departments and communicate your needs clearly while respecting and promoting theirs

  • 8+ years experience in video game narrative development 

  • Strong writing skills and a dynamic voice 

  • A strong understanding of story/scene crafting 

  • A strong understanding of narrative principles for video or tabletop games, or both 

  • Familiarity with various software from Microsoft Office (Word and Excel), and a willingness to learn more (Final Draft and Confluence) 

  • A willingness to embrace diversity initiatives 

  • A familiarity with Dungeons & Dragons would be great. Otherwise, expect to be immersed 

  • A passion, not just for writing, but for games and gaming culture
