wrote on the SIGs: Game Writing wall: Hi. I am new to the site and am happy to be part of this group. I am currently a data acquisition engine programmer and I am wondering if anyone has any thoughts on what game industry position would most closely match my skill set. I would like to create a skill gap analysis however I am not sure which specialization I should focus on.

Game writers include those in the video game industry who write dialogue scripts, construct overarching narrative structure, produce documentation and articles, and a myriad of other writing tasks. Sometimes, they are specifically identified as writers, and other times they find themselves picking up writing duties as an addition to their primary jobs. In either case, the craft and process of game writing, and the quality that good game writing brings to game development as a whole, have been undervalued for too long.

Our membership includes writers, those who hire and work with writers, and those who want to be writers.
