Bungie job posting might point to new direction

Bungie is looking for a new Lead Writer, somebody to manage a team of writers, blah blah blah. If you’ve got a lot of experience and such, well, maybe they’ll hire you. That’s not the interesting bit about the position.

One of the things mentioned specifically as “a plus” is experience with “branching or non-linear narrative.” Now that would be something really different from what I’ve come to expect from Bungie. Perhaps getting out of the Halo game will yield interesting results.

In addition, applicants are required to have “Zero desire to parlay your game writing experience into a film, TV show, novel &c.” I don’t even know where to begin to speculate on what that could mean but I’m sure there’s a very funny story in there.

LEAD WRITER [Bungie — Thanks, Wh1terav3n!]
