Ken Levine’s mysterious and long-awaited project begins recruiting professionals to shape his virtual world.
Ken Levine has been preparing his new video game for years. Levine, creator of Bioshock and head of Bioshock Infinite – launched his own gaming company Ghost Story Games back in 2013, a studio created from the ashes of Irrational Games. However, despite all the secrecy and silence, the studio began to hire and started posting new job offers a few days ago. Their mission is simple: to create immersive, story-driven video games for people who love games that ask something of them.
Levine’s new game will be a “very immersive simulator genre. ” Ghost Story Games would have already begun to look for new professionals trained for this premise, claiming an expert in strong narrative design also dealing with the defined set of elements and technical requirements. The truth is that this work requirement fits perfectly with the idea of a video game that seeks to innovate in the way in which the narrative affects the player and vice versa.
Shadows of Mordor and games with emerging and systemic narratives have inspired the new project
