Project

Goddess of the Hunt is a narrative puzzle game about a young Artemis who has her mind set on becoming goddess of the hunt. You'll puzzle through challenges as she tries to prove herself to the hostile powers-that-be in Olympus.

We are currently building a prototype to pitch for further funding and could use some help.

What you'll be doing

  • Review current story and structure

  • Write and iterate on scenes for the prototype

  • Create a new outline for the main story arc

  • Write scattered scenes for early, middle, and late game

Optionally, you can also

  • Integrate story into game (using Ink)

  • Propose gameplay features to compliment the story

  • Propose storytelling tools or mechanics to enhance the story

  • Propose feedback and ideas to any part of the game

It'd be great if you had

  • Familiarity with experiences of gender-based gatekeeping in the workplace

  • Knowledge of Greek mythology

  • Interest in action puzzle games (ie. Tetris, Puzzle Bobble)

  • Enthusiasm for discussing and answering writing and narrative design questions from a particular programmer named Moo who is trying to narrative design this game but isn’t quite sure how things are going
