I would apply for Game Scenario Writer, but since you said this was aimed more at highschool/college students, I'm not really sure if you'd accept a middle schooler.

I dunno. I think I'd be good at Game Scenario Writer/Content editor. I like to write stories, and my friends say I'm annoying when it comes to grammar, as I correct every little detail. But I really don't have a lot of spare time between school and family and youtube and things like that.

Porcelaine • Friday, April 17, 2015 - 7:46pm • #21

Correct me if I'm wrong, but why is a digital illustrator needed when there aren't images in the game? :/
