~Misson, quest writing and narrative design~
Our writers are driven to push the boundaries of dramatic storytelling in open-world games. We want players to feel hooked by our quests and characters, to enjoy dialogue that crackles, and to savor our stories long after they put down the controller.

In your cover letter, please include your reason for applying at Guerrilla, your background and how you became a writer, and briefly describe the proven methods you rely on to write great stories.
For your writing samples, PDFs are preferred. Please ensure each sample is no longer than 10 pages, though shorter is often better. Before applying, look at our previous releases - if you can, play them.
When selecting or composing your writing samples, be sure to include samples that reflect the style, tone and particularly the modes of storytelling seen in our previous releases. Your samples need to demonstrate you can write the kind of games we make.
It is strongly advised that among your samples you include at least one script for a game cinematic/cutscene, preferably written in screenplay format. We need to see that you can craft dramatic scenes, and that you have a good ear for dialogue.
It is preferred that your other samples are also examples of games writing, if possible.
