Win a Job at BioWare

Tired of lame contests where all you win is a mug or T-shirt? Well, BioWare is holding a writing contest where the prize is a job with the company!

The catch? It has to be done with the Neverwinter Nights software.

    It’s all about the story
    Note also that they really really want you to focus on your writing, as you get very little map space (I think they give you a 4×4 grid). Thus, really, all you can do is just run back and forth between NPCs (oh, you can only have three of those) and start dialogs with ’em.

    Fortunately, the NWN editor is fairly easy to pick up, especially since you won’t need to do any clever scripting here – just about all you’d need is their branching dialogue editor, and that’s easy enough to learn.

    I’d enter except that I don’t have any good ideas :(

    Great staff
    These guys are based in the town I live in, and I
    interviewed with them a while back. The people I met in
    the process were a lot of fun. Give this a shot; they’d be
    fun to work with. (I can’t enter myself, as NWN doesn’t
    run on my operating system.)

      What OS is that?

        Either Mac or Linux. Originally the Aurora Toolset was to run on all three “major” OSes, but it looks like only a Windows client was released. Damn shame, but you have to look at the ROI on these things. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to beat my inner PHB for using phrases like “ROI.”

          Allow me to assist you. *proceeds to beat the living piss out of theangrymob’s inner PHB*

          Thanks, I feel better. Now somebody needs to do the same to me, because I’ve been doing my boss’s statistics work for the past two weeks because he doesn’t understand what the numbers mean.

          It’s really starting to get to me because I see now how easy his job is, and knowing how much he gets paid to do this crap that I’m doing in my spare time.

          This vent has been brought to you by the letter Q.

        I’m running Kubuntu 5.10.
