DESIGN- Campaign Director

Bellevue, WA
 

Campaign Director

You are the conductor of the symphony… Working with Creative Direction, Lead Writer and Senior Producer, you and your team of mission designers breathe life into the game.  While you won’t personally be designing missions or writing dialog your deliverable is the complete game experience…   This means you’ll spend lots of time playing the content and working with the mission designers to bring missions themselves, as well as the overall game, together..

Is the “thief escape” mission working technically/emotionally?  Can we sharpen up the storytelling in the “lost buddy” mission? Are we hitting the emotional targets as we transition to the 3rd act? Do we have enough variety of content?  Is there room to breathe in the game world, yet still enough content to entice players?  As the director of the campaign you’re constantly asking and answering these sorts of questions.

But wait, there’s more!  The missions you and the team make – they collide with the “systems” content as well.  In fact, your team places and tunes lots of these encounters as well.  You see the entire gameplay landscape, and bring it into balance. There’s no other way to say this: It’s a huge job.  

Our goal with each game we make is to create deep and meaningful player experiences, and this means creating innovative and immersive missions and gameplay. The Campaign Director is the focal point for this process, collaborating with the rest of the design and narrative teams to weave missions together into something unforgettable.

  • Actively participate in milestone planning, including early production work assignments through to late game course corrections and polish.
