Game Development/Writing/Quantum Physics

Italic Pig is a 2014 Writers' Guild Nominee for Best Writing in a Video Game (Schrödinger's Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark). We love great stories, innovative narrative, snappy dialogue, non-sequiturs and anything covered in mozzarella. If you're looking to blow your dev budget on any of that, let's meet.

Nobody ever got anywhere by thinking medium.

What we offer

We offer excellent games writing and development expertise. We're not really a full game studio for hire, but stories are something we tend to get really fired up about, and anything we can do to inject existing properties with better dialogue, exciting narrative, and multi-threaded gameplay is a win for everybody.

We also have an interesting take on education in games. In our game, any player that doesn't already recognise the name Schrödinger's Cat doesn't even realise they're learning quantum physics and particle interaction by playing it (nothing equation-level certainly, but enough that they'd recognise concepts if they saw something about it later). We like to inspire self-motivated learning, through game mechanics and well-written dialogue.

What we are looking for

Italic Pig released its first game last year on Steam, and has received excellent reception for it. Schrödinger's Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark is a strategic, quantum-physics-themed puzzler that entertains clever kids and their geeky parents alike. It also won us a nomination for Best Writing in a Video Game from the Writers' Guild of Great Britain.

This year we hope to extend the Schrödinger's Cat reach to include Console (March/April 2015) and Mobile, while at the same time extending outward into more SC branded games to cleverly cover more wacky science subject matter in an entertaining way.

As well, as Writers' Guild Nominees, we're looking to help others realise the full potential of story and narrative in games, and are looking to offer our services for writing & editing.

Schrödinger's Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark

What we offer

A dark, dichromatic, dead-&-alive feline superhero tasked with disentangling the anthropomorphic chaos of the Particle Zoo in a fast-&-furious action-adventure platformer/puzzler/punch-up of subatomic proportions.

It's not as complicated as it sounds. Well, maybe.

*** Writers' Guild Nominee: Best Writing in a Video Game ***

What we are looking for

Anyone who likes a bit of 99th-percentile humour, corny physics jokes, cleverer-than-average gameplay and award-nominated dialogue.

You don't need a degree to play it, but it helps.
