We’re Playabl, a new studio in Portland, Oregon, developing games and virtual reality experiences starring emotional, personality-rich animated interactive characters driven by artificial intelligence.  

We’re recruiting comedy/drama writers, and casting an ensemble of voice actors, for animated characters in interactive comedies/dramas that appeal to adults.  

Candidates should have proven writing credits in television, film, theater, improv, or web, either short-form or long-form.

Playabl's characters are in their 20’s and 30’s, from all walks of life.  They are contemporary, everyday people in dramatic situations, speaking a wide variety of dialog, to support interactivity for the player of the experience.  

The writing process involves:

  • Collaborating with our director/designers on story structure for a particular premise.

  • Writing a series of multi-scene short film/play length scripts.

  • Each script is a plot variation of a primary premise and structure.

  • The engineering team will then deconstruct your written dialog, and turn it into interactive scenes for a player to control.

Please email your resume to jobs@playabl.ai, with “Writer” in the subject.
